TEMA 10. LAS CONSECUENCIAS MEDIOAMBIENTALES DE LA ACTIVIDAD ECONÓMICA

 On this new 3 lesson on your book, we are going to learn about the environment and its relation within the economic activity.  
- BRAIN STORMING
Before we get involved in the lesson, watch the next link "The Earth"with no thoughts on your mind...and let the astonishing images touch your soul.



On the next one, let you feel yourself the "Colours of the world" in order to understand how beatiful is our "Mother Earth" and the people who habitate it. We are part of it and we should feel that we are part of the totality, of the "whole".


!Do not think too much and open your eyes and heart¡

PRESENTATION
The whole presentation is on the next paragraph, but remember that in order to reinforce a deeper knowlegde of the lesson READ on your textbook in Spanish several times.


On the next link you will find a wide range of information related with the National Parks in Spain. Look at the general idea and get involved for the beaty of the presentation. Afterwards fill out the worksheet I handed you out in class. Good luck¡


SPAIN is an amazing country...we should discover it being respectful with us and with others.Get some ideas where to go on the next holidays, but do not forget to be sensitive about the most important "Problemas medio ambientales en ESPAÑA" on a very complete presentation in Spanish. Pictures are pretty realistic with the main environmental problem...

-WORLD CONFERENCES
In 1972, the United Nations Organization designed the 5th of June as the World Environment Day to acknowledge the importance of the conservation and improvement of it.

The 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference, commonly known as the Copenhagen Summit, was held in Copenhagen, Denmark last december.

The conference was preceded by the Climate Change: Global Risks, Challenges and Decisions scientific conference, which took place in March 2009.


The Copenhagen Accord was drafted by the US, China, India, Brazil and South Africa on December 18, and judged a "meaningful agreement" by the United States government. It was "taken note of", but not "adopted", in a debate of all the participating countries the next day, and it was not passed unanimously. The document recognised that climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the present day and that actions should be taken to keep any temperature increases to below 2°C. The document is not legally binding and does not contain any legally binding commitments for reducing CO2 emissions. Many countries and non-governmental organisations were opposed to this agreement, but, as of January 4, 2010, 138 countries have signed the agreement.

There are different points of view. Check the next videos to get any types of approaching to the issue.

In this conservative process, The UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves covers internationally-designated protected areas, known as biosphere reserves, that are meant to demonstrate a balanced relationship between man and nature (e.g. encourage sustainable development).

Inclusion in the World Network starts with nominations as prepared by national governments. Benefits gained from being part of the network include the integration of conservation, development and scientific research concerns to sustainably manage the shared ecosystems.
