        Taking Action for a Clean Environment

        In this media-rich, self-paced lesson, students explore activism -- taking action to bring about change -- including some causes that activists espouse and the tactics that they use to end harmful practices or reshape policies. The lesson contains videos that feature some successful youth activists, and identifies some of the personal characteristics that many activists possess. The lesson concludes with a choice of a final assignment: students may either plan and execute an activist campaign, or interview or profile an activist in their own community.
