Enjoy Earth Day 2014





Before watching the video, debate briefly with your peers:
 
What´s a "selfie"?
Is Earth Day important in your community / city ? Why?



Watch the video and discuss:

  •  Is the message of the video presentation optimistic or pessimistic? What elements in the presentation give you that idea?
  •  The narrator talks about cities mainly; why is that so in our opinion?
  •  The narrator talks about two possible futures; can you describe them?


Watch the video again, find out when these terms appear and think of synonym expressions:

we need to stand up for the future
outdated
here´s the thing
rely on
within our grasp


After watching:
  • Consider the pros and / or cons of having Earth Day in our calendars.
  • Are there any initiatives in your city to foster a cleaner, more sustainable future? What would be good ideas in this sense?
