Sustainability and You
This final discussion assignment is to apply the terms listed below, and apply them to what the course has presented to you on Florida and its ecosystems. Lastly, we wish to hear how you can practice sustainability in your own everyday lives and habits.
Be sure to answer the following questions:
1) Define Sustainability and Sustainable development. Please use valid resources such as government or educational sites. Provide their definitions in your own words, do not copy and paste.
2) Compare and contrast the three components of a sustainable society. The three components are ecological integrity, social justice and economic prosperity. The course discussed the first component, ecological integrity, in the most detail, with references to social justice and economic prosperity. Provide, in your own words, how each component can work together, as well as the difficulties of maintaining each with the influences of the others.
3) In the freshwater marshes unit, there are several examples of humans now emulating nature. Provide one of them.
4) How can you, as an individual, change behavior or practice to be a more sustainable individual?
