Hello Science Fans!
How can STEM help make what we buy and what we use more sustainable?
In this video, we talk about the status of food, water, and energy all over the world — highlighting issues that damage the environment, and how our current lifestyles are unsustainable. We then discuss the different indicators that the United Nations (UN) has created to help achieve Sustainable Development Goal 12 (SDG 12): Responsible Consumption and Production. We look at the current situation in the Philippines, and assess how much effort we still need so that we can improve how we handle our waste, how we create our food, and how we make more people become aware of sustainability issues. And, of course, we look at the valuable contributions that STEM can make to achieve this SDG!
So if you want to learn how we can make shopping more sustainable, please check out this video!
