Environmental Change

Agricultural and industrial production is affecting a greater range of locations.


The disposal of waste materials of industrial production is an increasing concern.


Food is being transported from the other side of the world to satisfy our demand for exotic and out-of-season produce.


Globalisation of industrial production leads to goods being flown from an increasingly wider range of destinations.


The environmental awareness movement continues to grow.


'Eco-friendly', 'green' and 'sustainable' are terms that are not just talked about in classrooms, however despite greater public awareness pollution and degradation at a local, national and regional level still occur.
