  • Reflection Question
    Community Support Businesses Owned by People of Color
    Keen Independent Research Foundation conducted a recent study that highlights the disparities in the availability of city contracts and loans to businesses, and how this disparity correlates to owners as people of color. The study showed that Minority businesses enterprises (MBEs) are more likely to have difficulties in receiving loans or city contracts. In what ways can you address systemic racism?

    Now try to see what the minority commission's duty is. Among them are the evaluation of the progress of minority society, see the implementation of the laws that are to be made in this regard. Suggesting the State Government for the benefit of minorities. If anybody has said anything against acts of discrimination or action against the minorities then take appropriate action against harassment. Protecting the rights of minorities and their human rights. Give suggestions to the Central Government from time to time.

    How do you think climate change will affect your region’s water supply? Think about the effects of weather, storms, salinity, and sea level rise, among other changes. How can you find out more about climate change’s impact to your region's water?

    Water resources are important to both society and ecosystems. We depend on a reliable, clean supply of drinking water to sustain our health. We also need water for agriculture, energy production, navigation, recreation, and manufacturing. Many of these uses put pressure on water resources, stresses that are likely to be exacerbated by climate change.

    Plants are living organisms that can live on land or water. They have many different forms such as huge trees, others are herbs or some have bushy form. The basic food for all organisms is produced by green plants. Plants help in maintaining oxygen balance, the most important gas that enable us to breathe Humans directly or indirectly depend on plants for several of their needs.

    Nature Forage for My Food
    Amongst the motivations for foraging are: a source of food; means of income; connecting with nature; cultural tradition; or transmitting "local ecological knowledge, and a means for stewarding local and native plant populations" (McLain et al. 2012, 13). Which of these would be your chief motivation and why?

    hat is the main purpose of biodiversity conservation today? To protect individual species, preserve habitat and ecosystems, and make certain human neighbors benefit. Inside the leaves of plants, photosynthesis take place

    Better urban planning can help prevent human exposure to harmful air pollutants. Good quality public transport, for example, can help reduce fossil fuel emissions as well as improve safety for children within cities
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Buy Used Clothes
    Do people with economic privilege have a responsibility to consume and own less? How can the concept of "reduce" be presented to those who may be struggling to have enough food, clothes, shelter?

    Widespread hunger and malnutrition in a world of plentiful food implies that extreme poverty is the root cause of undernourishment. It is not always understood, however, that hunger and malnutrition (including micronutrient deficiencies) are in turn major causes of poverty. They affect the ability of individuals to escape poverty in several ways
