  Project Overview

Another RINGS project at Holy Heart can be found on EARTH (Environmental Awareness and Responsibility Team Homepage). Part of an ongoing project for the Environmental Science Youth Internship program, its aim is to produce an online magazine to examine and exchange information about local, regional, national and worldwide environmental issues. Using the Internet as a primary resource, students involved in this program will communicate with others from across the globe opening up dialogues on the real story behind local environmental issues with global significance. The web site production will allow effective reporting of these contacts, while the web use will allow a more efficient, more flexible and more natural means of information access.

  Goals

  • to make students aware of major global environmental problems, the basic science behind them, their current status, and any progress made toward the solution of these problems
  • to identify the problems associated with a local and global environmental issue, worksite related
  • to enable students to clearly communicate their opinions, and the information on which they are based, to others
  • to demonstrate a commitment to contributing to the solution of global environmental problems and by actions, a commitment to contributing to the solution of local environmental problems

  Intended Participants

  • Environmental Science students, including those in the Environmental Youth Internship
  • students in North West Territories already linked to the project

  Learning Outcomes

  • creation and maintenance of an online magazine dealing with environmental issues
  • production of environmental issue based articles both online and for print distribution
  • e-mail links with other similar student groups
  • creation and support of an advocacy program for the correction of a local environmental problem

  Activities

Students will:

  • develop Web pages about their project using HTML and Netscape
