Module 5: Interdependence

In what ways are we increasingly interconnected in the modern world?

This manual explains how people, communities and nations are interconnected through their shared environments. It is divided into three sections, each exploring ways in which we are interconnected with our environments. These include food webs, atoll ecosystems, and ecological footprints. 

This resource is part of the Schools for a Healthy Environment programme, which also includes the following modules: ‘Ourselves’, ‘Earth’, ‘Life Around Us’, ‘Resources from the Environment’, and ‘Science and Technology’.

These modules are designed to supplement teachers of Environmental Studies in schools or educators who are facilitating environmental clubs. Each manual includes instructions for classroom activities, sheets for teachers to help with lesson planning, as well as resource sheets for students to use in the classroom. They feature clear links to relevant areas of the curriculum, and use an inquiry model for learning, where students have greater responsibility for their own learning and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
