The environment is ours to help


This semester, in my web design for new content class, we had to tweet every week on our news beat. I chose environment/global warming for my news beat. I am very passionate about this topic, there are so problems going on with the environment throughout the world.

With problems comes solutions, and a lot of them.


Canadian officials authorized a $30 million budget cut in national parks. This funding is vital to maintaining the parks, and for the scientists to continue with their research.

I also tweeted a few of my blog posts, including the map exercise and the video interview i conducted with Dr. McDevitt.


While i am passionate about everything to do with the environment,  National parks hold a special place in my heart.

This is from “The new Plan for National Parks kickstarts a programme of activity to safeguard the future of these iconic landscapes, including by engaging young people throughout their education:

  • From primary school, bringing more than 80,000 young people to visit National Parks and putting National Parks in the curriculum
  • at secondary school, doubling the number of youth volunteers in National Parks as part of the National Citizen Service
  • In their first steps to employment, developing a new apprenticeship standard and doubling apprenticeships in National Parks by 2020″cropped-earth.gif

Ending post on climate change seems like the right thing to do. We need to raise as much awareness to this topic as we possibly can. It will not ever go away, it’ll only get worse.
