Our population of over six billion people is putting increasing pressure on the world's resources. So what solutions are there to the many challenges facing the environment today? This series encourages readers to think about what they would do about a range of local and global topics, providing them with ideas, tools, and skills to research and understand difficult questions. Its practical, down-to-earth treatment and case studies will encourage critical thinking and keep students engaged, whilst providing guidance on the information and media literacy skills that are part of the modern curriculum.
