||As a class, discuss the questions listed below. Listen
to what the other groups learned
from their evaluations and take notice of the problems
that concern you most.
||Based on all of this information, what do
you think are the five most important issues facing the
environment, animals, and humans in your community?
||Can you trace the sources of these problems? What are
they and why are they occurring?
||As Roots & Shoots members and community members,
what is your connection to these problems?
||How aware are people of these problems? Are they recognized
as problems in the community or school? Are people concerned?
||What are the biggest consequences of these problems?
||Can you think of any solutions to these problems? If
so, why aren’t these solutions being implemented
||What resources would you need (equipment, funding, information,
transportation, time) to carry out some of these solutions?
||If you propose a solution, how would it benefit the
community? Are there community members who might not agree
with this solution? If so, could you work out a compromise?
