Impact Narrative

Alena writes, “We would love these books to share with our Geography and Social Studies classes! All our Year 9 students do a unit course titled “Global Perspectives” in which we look at and challenge the issues locally, nationally and globally. We look at Overpopulation and over-consumption and the issues associated with this. We look at specific countries such as Bangladesh and the issues they face due to their rapidly-increasing population and developing status. We look at issues such as fishing, and the practices associated with fishing that are unsustainable. The photographs in your book would wonderfully illustrate the points we are making in our unit, trying to get our citizens to act locally, while thinking globally. We would like to publicise your campaign on our website, and through our monthly newsletter that goes to families.”
