Using Decision-making and Entrepreneurial Thinking
Young Voices for the Planet is a film series that aims to share the success stories of the youth who are working to limit the negative effects of climate change. The goal is to address communities and society as a whole to make a difference for the planet.
In this film, four middle school students take the lead in greening their school. They came up with ways for the school to reduce their carbon footprint like switching to more sustainable classroom habits and even building a huge network of people to create a massive project with solar panels! Find out in the video below how they used entrepreneurial thinking to green their school and save over $30,000.
These students made a huge impact and worked towards the Sustainable Development Goals by using creative entrepreneurial thinking. By incorporating entrepreneurial thinking into your lessons, you can to teach your students to think and act beyond the classroom!
Have a discussion with your class about how the four girls acted like entrepreneurs. Talk about how they thought outside the box, who they reached out to, the risks involved if any, and what they can do at home or at school to go green.
