Take action for OUR PLANET

I created a virtual blackboard with the application thinglink (www.thinglink.com) in which you will find videos and links to watch and browse to become more knowledgeable about climate change, global warming, carbon footprint, recycling.   These aspects are essential for us to have the necessary grasp to do something to protect our future, that is to safeguard the environment. Without the environment we cannot exist, so it is high time we learnt something about the necessary steps we need to take to survive and live in harmony with nature.

Read these quotes from Native Indian sages.  What do they have in common?  What thoughts do they prompt?  Which one do you like best? Why?

eat money

we belong to the land

Here you get your interactive eye promoting recyling and not only.

Now use the following padlet to write your comments.  I want you to write two things: a slogan for a t-shirt meant to raise people’s awareness of climate change and the appalling ways we are jeopardizing our environment and thus our own lives.  Then write at least one resolution “I am going to…” to do something to safeguard the environment.  E.g. I am going to turn off the tap when I take a shower.  OR I am going to ask my mum to buy energy efficient bulbs.  Before you write your resolution, make sure that your classmates have not written it already.  So first come first served!!

Last but not least, I would like you to write a poem dedicated to Planet Earth, to the Environment, to Nature.  It could be: Write a poem about what makes nature so grand and majestic. OR Think about the things you do daily to help the environment or how you incorporate elements of nature into your home. Write a poem about the joy and contentment that brings you. OR Find areas that are dealing with big issues of destruction and pollution. Write a poem about the destruction slowly destroying that area, and how it impacts the other communities around it.

Peace By Piece by Celia Berrell

The world is getting smaller and its breaking into bits.

Let’s put it back together.

Peace by piece the puzzle fits.

Repairs can all be tended by the tiniest of friends.

As working all together peace by piece the puzzle mends.

Town And Country Air by Celia Berrell

It’s both town and country air that we ultimately share.

So polluting one expect to get a butterfly effect.

If the key to all our health is to share in nature’s wealth

then we’d best invest a plan to save our wildlife while we can.

Stand Up by Graeme King

Pretend it doesn’t happen

look away you can’t afford to yell or have your say

they have the law behind them and the right and where can we find nerve to stand and fight?

It’s easy to look elsewhere turn your head afraid to ask the questions arms outspread to ask the reasons why they want it all we hear the forest cry and watch it fall.

Be strong. Raise up your hand and join the crowd send out your voice of protest shout it loud

we must preserve the ground on which we tread one day you may remember what I’ve said.

Choose an image linked to the poem you have written, then use the application www.fotobabble.com to record you reading your poem.  Articulate words clearly so that everybody can understand and appreciate your poem. This is my poem and my fotobabble.

My Cradle, My Tomb by Cristiana Ziraldo

Out of you I came

Welcomed and lulled by your warmth

First I crawled and I could smell the scent of flowers

I could feel the soft cool drops of dew

I rolled down jolly hills

I loved you since Day One, unaware of the century I was doomed to live

Each offence to you offended me

I grew and saw my cradle being filled with waste, I felt like choking

People littering, people blind to your wealth: they traced deep scars in you, ignoring the wounds procured to their own future

I did my best, I respected you at my very best, yet that was not enough

Greed and Ignorance turned my rosy cradle, my happy childhood, into my present grey Tomb.

As you saw in the “interactive eye” there are different ways to raise people’s awareness of environmental issues.  There are governments and environmental institutions that do this through social advertising, either in the form of videos or in the form of printed images/messages.

I want you to look at the following “ads of the world” and say which one you like the most and why.  Which ad has the strongest impact on you?  If you were asked to create an ad yourself, what would it be like?

Then watch the two social advertising videos and state which one you find more effective to raise a young person’s awareness of global warming and climate change.

  1. Francesca Miculan scrive:

    QUOTES:
    My favorite quote is the one based on Cree because in a few words it express an important concept.
    Like Prince-ea this quote says that the world will finish because we are killing Nature and we waste the wonderful environment that Nature give us; we don’t safeguard the wold, we just think on money, how to make it and how to spend it and we don’t worry about the Earth and our lives. In fact the quote says: ” will we realize we can’t eat money “, and I chose this quote for this because it opened my eyes and I understood that we kill nature but we also kill ourselves, thinking just on money.

  2. laura de franceschi scrive:

    QUOTES:
    I liked more the third quote because it means that the environment where we live is necessary for our life and if we use and “kill” it only to earn money, thus we kill ourselves too.

  3. Elisa scrive:

    QUOTES
    I think all these quotes want to tell us that Earth isn’t ours. We have to take care of her, not only because Earth will retaliate, but above all because if we destroy the environment, it won’t give us what we need.
    These quotes make us think that the earth is a very special gift that we have to save before it’s too late.
    I really like the quote based on Cree saying because of the message: nowadays we are too much attached to money, but if we haven’t nature we haven’t life, and without life we can’t get or spend money.

  4. Valeria scrive:

    These quotes have in common the respect the land that gave our life and nature and that the money should not be our present and future.
    NATIV AMERICAN PROVERBS
    this quote make me think that the land does not belong to nobody;and just as it says,the land must leave it to future generations as it is.
    RUSSELL MEANS
    this quote suggests that the earth sooner or later will take Revenge of his abusers.
    CREE SAYING
    this one says the money isn’t as important as the goods needed to live too.
    NATIV INDIAN WINSDOM
    this quote remind us that exactly we belong to the earth,no that is the land that belong to us;this is something never to be forgotten.

    I like the “CREE SAYING” because I think it makes more sense of the other three quotes.

  5. Arianna scrive:

    Quotes:
    This four quotes talk about environment and the importance to take care of our Earth. In these quotes I read wise words that makes you think about nowadays situation of the Earth but the quote that I like better is the second by Russell Means because it talks about true things. For example he wrote that there are no excuse, that everything we do against the Mother Earth will backfire against us. We need to think about our action because they have got a price. I share his ideas and I think we have to appreciate our Earth or better to love our Earth because it suffer especially because of us. Everyone has got a daily routine, someone never think about the environment and the Earth only help us . It offer us food, water beautiful landscapes and more but we never appreciate this things enough. To be honest this quote worried me when I read the least phrases ” Things come full circle, back to where they started”. Probably, in my opinion, it will happen but I hope in the future things will change for a better life and for a better future for our Earth.

  6. Shani scrive:

    QUOTES
    They all have in common the prompt on taking care of the Earth before it’s too late. If not, Mother Earth will retaliate and the abusers will be eliminated, because in the end we can’t eat money.
    I like the quote based on Cree saying best and I agree with it because money isn’t everything. You can survive with just a piece of land even if you’re poor because Earth gives you anything you need.

  7. Banchi Lisa scrive:

    QUOTES: I choose the third poem for two reasons. The first one is because I really like it; the second one is because the autor writes something of truth namely now nobody cares of the nature but everybody cares of their own business and their money.

  8. Francesca scrive:

    Quotes:
    all these quotes talk about the problems caused by humans to nature. These problems will damage all living being and when the humans will notice that it is dangerous for everybody and for our health, will be too late. my favorite quote is “eat money” based on Cree saying because we cannot realize that we are obsessed by money and we don’t care about nature. we will realize that we were born by nature and we die by contaminated nature.

  9. Mazzon Chiara scrive:

    QUOTES: I choose the second poem because we destroy the nature to develop the economy without thinking this thing can demage it, and I think it is also whit a meaning.

  10. Francesca Strammiello scrive:

    QUOTES

    I agree with the third quote because I think only when we notice the mistake we did then we feel bad and regret all.
    So we don’t understand we don’t eat money but we eat what come from plants, trees and fields. Only then we understand all but at least we don’t do anything beacause if we leave do this another times we will all extinct and our succesors will live in a worst world and maybe the life in the Earth will probably finish.
    So for one time, we could think more to our health and life instead of money. Because they will never buy the health of our planet and our lives.
    For a better world we don’t need money because we are the saviors of our planet and if we don’t act like we must do we will never conclude with an happy end.

  11. Anna Sara scrive:

    QUOTES
    These quotes are all by Native Indian sages who wanted to make people aware of the importance of nature. The goal is to make people feel guilty if they aren’t doing something to safeguard the environment or, even worse, if they are doing something against it. These sages wanted to communicate us that we have to (and we need to) do something about Planet Earth before everything collapses.
    I think each one of the four quotes is quite impressive but the one I like the most is the first one because we often talk about our planet as something we inherited already damaged. We tend to blame who was here before us without thinking that the next generation will blame us even more because we didn’t do anything to change the situation, we just made it worse.

  12. Alessia Bernard scrive:

    All these quotes tell us how important is the Earth and how important is to safeguard the environment.
    The quote I like best is the third because people are so greedy that think only how to make money and they don’t see the Earth’s needs.
    People ruin the environment with the pollution, the deforestation and the killing of too many animals but they don’t know that is a circle: if we ruin the Earth it will cause us illness and pain but if we take care of the Earth it will give us life and happiness.

  13. Toffoli Chiara scrive:

    -What do they have in common? All the quotes speak of our World and the problems that is in it.
    -What troughts do they prompt?

    -Which one do you like best? Why? The third one because says what I thought in whole this time, namely that I’m not the only who live in the World. We’re many that we live in it. Then one thing cannot belongs to 6 milion people but we who belong to that thing. This is true with us and the Earth.

  14. Arianna Falvo scrive:

    Quotes
    These quotes have in common that were said from American Indian and they are simple but intense.
    All these quotes have a similar meaning: we were wrong at abuse the environment, but we can prevent the human extinction only struggling.
    I really like the third quotes because the world is based on the economy and for some people money are the most important thing, but they (money) couldn’t save the human race from the self destruction. If we don’t reduce pollution, the ecosystem and we all will die.

  15. Giulia Martin scrive:

    Quotes: I liked most the first quote because our children are the future generation and they should safeguard our planet more then the adults. Nothing can stop the man mentality but we can change the way you see things. The Earth does not wait us and it can’t change herself. Now, the adults are spoiling it for a simple and relief reason: money. We are the boys and girls of the future and we can’t, or better, we must not remain indifferent to this disaster that little by little is ruining us and we do not realize that it really happens.

  16. Sara Tonon scrive:

    They have in common that all want to promote the environment protection. The thoughts that promt are: We borrow the earth from our children, things come full circle, back to where they started, we cannot eat money and you beolng to this land. I like the first, a Native American Proverb. Because I think that we should keep an healthy environment especialy for the new generations.

  17. alessia mancuso scrive:

    I chose the Native Indian’s quote because for me,this words catch the attention and make you understand the meaning of this phrases. We think that is the Earth belong to us and for this we believe we can do everything to the nature,to all animals,all plants and we don’t care about all this can cause. Just in the future when there will be nothing to do we will understand that the Earth allowed us to live. And maybe we will feel sorry for what all peolpe did to our friend Earth. This quote reflect the viewpoint of people who want to change the things.

  19. Arianna Guerra scrive:

    QUOTES: For me, these quotes tell us that we must look after the Earth for the good of our successors. Moreover we have got only one Earth and it doesn’t belong to us, so we must respect it. If we don’t respect it, it can’t give us a clean environment.
    These quotes make us reflect: Mother Earth has given us a wonderful world and we mussn’t destroy it for our interests or our money.
    I prefer the fourth quote because many people in the world think the Earth belong to them, moreover do what they want and don’t think to other people’s health, but we belong to nature and we have to always abide by Mother Earth.

  20. Elena Fogliato scrive:

    Quotes:
    1. These quotes have in common the message, that is to respect the Earth because we live in and we don’t realize that if we don’t do something we destroy the environment.
    2. They prompt to fight for environment because we interest only for the money and we don’t care of our needs or about tomorrow but some people don’t interest to save the Earth because they are catch up in their doings.
    3. I like the last quote because is direct especially when says “ it is you who belong to this land”. And this is a beautiful message because I understand that we don’t interest only for the money but we try to save environment. The Earth isn’t mine is for all and we fight for save it.

  21. alice accaria scrive:

    quotes: I think the quote from Native Indians Wisdom is perfect to understand the importance of nature and the environment in our life, because it says that every part of you one day will return to the earth and nobody can say that a land is his property, just because it has always existed, even before the human race was born.

  22. Annalia scrive:

    This four texts treat of Earth and its importance of us because it give us food, water and air for us survival and we have to respect it.
    I prefer the third quotes because it opens your eyes and it shows you the reality so that you don’t spend the money everywhere and anytime to have happiness, because it ends.
    But I like also the end of the fourth quotes “you will remember that this land does not belong to you, IT is YOU who belong to this LAND” because highlight that are you to act to do something for clean planet and no the other people.

  23. Sara Toffolo scrive:

    QUOTES
    Those quotes have in common the love for the Earth and they prompt to saveguard it. I like the fourth photo because it speaks about living in connection with nature, and because it makes me think about the life without technology.

  24. Leonardo Ferreira scrive:

    I chose the first quote because it makes me think: we all belong to the nature, we were a part of it, we still are and maybe we will be. So if we came out from it, mother earth is really a mother, then why should not we take care of her as we do with our own mothers? We must respect it because it keeps us alive and if there is no nature, we will not live anymore.

  25. najda scrive:

    QUOTES: These quotes in my opinion have a real meaning because they all have the purpose to protect the environmente. I like mostly the last quote because it involves me and hits me more. These quote has reason because when we born, the land indeed exist and gives us the possibility for grow up well. We have to respect the Earth.

  26. Alessia Marini scrive:

    Quotes:
    I really like this four quotes.
    They have all in common the nature,the fact that we belong to nature and that is better to think of the nature instead of thinking of money,because money isn’t all in life.
    They made the readers thinking about respect for the earth and about the future,they make sobering about the prospective of our future children,of what they will find if we continue to treat the earth that way.
    I like best the third quote “eat money?” because it is so really and the meaning of the poem is near of us all and I think it is easy to understand the meaning and the hidden charges.
    I think that the author wanted to be decisive,strong,even angry with all of us.It seems like he blame on us.It is a very good quote with a deep meaning.

  27. Pablo Raspa scrive:

    The quotes have in common many things about the climate and the man.
    For example the environment’s exploitation: the deforestations and the oceans’ pollution, but especially the aftermaths that we are going to have if we don’t stop this.
    These quotes make me think, that we have no much time, to improve our approach with the environment around us before it collapse, and we with it.
    My favourite one is the Russel Means’ quote, first of all for the expression that he has used, or rather:”Mother Earth” but above all, for his thought, that if we won’t stop this exploitation, the environment will retaliate and will eliminate us.

  28. Evelyn scrive:

    1) They have in common the theme of the earth and its problems . where their ” abuse ” of trees by cutting them not
    knowing the various complications that address .
    Very important that we could not live without what is oxygen .
    Then for example the food to feed us
    Then to cure us from disease and ultimately animal habitats . We must take care of our
    planet and especially the plants if there are we will not be here .

    2) They reflect especially on the importance of the earth . that nature is gradually disappearing thanks of to the
    deforestation and smog is advancing more and more.
    3) I preferred , because I really enjoyed the 3 quote , because he speak precisely of these trees who die every
    day , and the river has been poisoned thanks of to pollution and fish that live there who are dying or who we fish
    and because are we take polluted diseases but all this with the money we cannot do anything and the money is not bought life , as he says we do not feed money

  29. Alessia Bernard scrive:

    QUOTES
    All these quotes tell us how important is the Earth and how important is to safeguard the environment. The quote I like best is the third.
    Today people are so greedy that think only to make money and they don’t see the Earth’s needs. People ruin the environment with the pollution, the deforestation and the killing of too many animals, but they don’t know that is a circle: if we ruin the Earth it will cause us illness and pain but if we take care of the Earth it will give us life and happiness.

  30. Giulia Martin scrive:

    -In the video when the kid asks to her dad if there will be a happy ending, because is clear she’s worried that the cloud can destroy the city as in real life and in all the fairytails there’s a happy ending but it isn’t sure in reality there’s a remedy to the ”bad cloud” that is stoking more and more.

    -Global warming is one aspect of climate change that involves rising temperatures in various regions of the world. It’s caused by gases in the atmosphere that trap the heat. With rapping heat in the Earth’s atmosphere, temperatures will also rise involving the air and even the oceans. Also the use of fossil fuels is a huge contributorto the release of gases in the environment. To reduce global warming we can start recycling, using less heat, air conditioning and hot water, driving less and smart.
    -Recycle means the process of using materials into new products to save resurce and energy.
    -My carbon footprint is 3 planets and 20; carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities. People burn off a lot of energy, so to reduce carbon footprint we have to use less energy to do normal life routine.
    -Climate change: weather is the changes we see and feel outside from day to day. It might rain one day and be sunny the next. Sometimes it is cold. Sometimes it is hot. Weather also changes from place to place; Climate change is a change in the usual weather found in a place. This could be a change in how much rain a place usually gets in a year. Or it could be a change in a place’s usual temperature for a month or season. Climate change is also a change in Earth’s climate. This could be a change in Earth’s usual temperature. Or it could be a change in where rain and snow usually fall on Earth. Weather can change in just a few hours. Climate takes hundreds or even millions of years to change.

  31. najda scrive:

    EYE: The photos tell me that the recycling is very important for the humankind and animals because there are many children and animals that they suffer the consequence. I think that the adults should worry more and give the good breeding to their children. Are we that we should change things if we want a better World.

  32. Anna Sara scrive:

    SOCIAL ADVERTISING
    (1)The kid asks her dad whether there is a happy ending because she thinks that this story is just a fairytail like “Cinderella”. Unfortunately it isn’t and there won’t be a Fairy Godmother that will save us all. WE have to save ourselves (since we don’t know how the story ends).
    (2)“Global warming” is the increase in the Earth’s averege atmospheric temperature caused by the greenhouse effect. Governments have to take action by reducing their dependency on fossil fuels and increasing the use of renewable energy sources instead, but we can also do something. We have no choice! Every citizen should try to reduce his emission of greenhouse gasses, for example by choosing the bike instead of the car when it’s possible or by turning the thermostat down just one degree. Those actions may seem useless when it comes to “global warming” but, if everyone tries really hard, they will have a great impact.
    (3)What do the photos tell you? Why is recycling important? –> These shocking photos tell us that the enormous quantity of waste we produce everyday is destroying our environment. Recycling is important because we often get rid even of those things we could actually re-use. And getting rid of something, for now, means burning, deposit, or burying it on our planet! So we never really “get rid” of it and pollution increases day by day! Recycling is definitely something we should all do. But is it enough? This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GorqroigqM) explains why recycling isn’t enough: “The waste coming out of our houses is just the tip of the iceberg. For every one garbage can of waste you put out on the curb 70 garbage cans of waste were made just to make the junk in that one garbage can you put out on the curbe. So even if we could recycle 100% of the waste coming out of our households it doesn’t get to the core of the problems”.
    (4)In this Greenpeace global warming ad we do not have captions in English. What would your caption be? –> Cleaning waste water is an energy-intensive process. Please don’t waste.
    (5)Another Greenpeace ad. How is linked to the one with the baby in the bathtub? Which one do you find more effective in denouncing global warming and asking for you to take action? –> The two videos aim to make people reflect upon their actions. Are we really making an effort to save the planet? Honestly I think that both of them are not very effective. In my opinion it’s more effective SEEING photos and videos of the terrible consequences of global warming, for example seeing how much a place changed because of pollution in a few years. That scares people more. We immediately think (thanks to our natural instincts) that the same things could happen to our contry, to our city, to our house, to us. Unfortunately we often take action only when it’s too late. This is a famous poem written by Pastor Martin Niemöller: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out. Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out. Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out. Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.”
    (6)What is carbon footprint? –> It’s a mark you leave upon the invironment with every action that releases carbons (harmful gasses like Carbon dioxide).
    (7)What do these people do wrong? How could they reduce their carbon footprint?–>
    These people have a bad impact on the invironment because of their wrong behaviour towards waste and pollution. For example they travel by airplane, leave the fridge door open for too long and take a bath instead of a short shower. To reduce their carbon footprint they could be more careful witht their actions. They could, for example, walk and cycle instead of driving and travelling by plane. And if it is impossible, they could choose public transportation. Trains are slower than planes but they pollute less! I was raised to belive in the power of the unknown.
    (8) REDUCE means using less of our resorces now, saving more for later. REUSE means finding a way to use things even when they should be thrown away in theory. RECYCLE means to pass a product through a system again for further use.
    (9)The 3 R’s song. Do you like it? What would your ideal song to promote recycling be like? —> I can’t say I like the song although I really appreciate its goal.
    Maybe it’s just me… but I think every song that celebrates planet Earth and its living beings (humans included) is somehow promoting the safeguard of the environment. I mean, there are lots of songs that, even without saying it loud and clear, give this simple message: this world is too beautiful to be destroyed. For example the song “Liebe” by Moop Mama gives me these thoughts. Even a simple melody can make you think “Wow, this is a wonderful place to live. I need to do something so that my children and my grandsons will see it too! I want them to hear this music under THESE trees, in front of THIS lake, while breathing THIS air”.
    Songs transmit emotions. Emotions push us into doing something.
    (10)How do you want to make a difference? –> “Even when we have more than enough, we are afraid to lose some of our wealth, afraid to share” says the girl in the video. I’m also afraid to lose some of my wealth. To make a difference, I should change my mind-set first.
    (11) 1. We have a compost bin in our vegetable garden.
    2. When shopping we always bring our eco-bags.
    3. My dad, my brother and I go to school by bike most of the times. My mum would love to, but her job doesn’t allow her to.
    4. We often walk or cycle to reach places located in our town (cinema, shops,..)
    5. When we are on vacation we often travel by train or by bus.
    6. We send drinking bottles, paper, used oil, old batteries and used tires to a depot for recycling or safe disposal.
    7. We don’t pour chemicals and waste oil on to the ground or into drains leading to bodies of water.
    8. Wherever possible we separate biodegradable and recyclable waste from non-biodegradable and work to reduce the amount of non-biodegradable or recyclable waste.
    9. We don’t eat much meat and sometimes we try things like “seitan”.

  33. Najda Bejo scrive:

    EYE: The kid ask her dad if it will be a happy ending because in the fables there is always a happy ending. In my opinion she was worried for the animals because what happens in the fable it could happen in real life too.

  34. Najda Bejo scrive:

    EYE: In my opinion what connects the video “angry kid” with baby’s video is the adult that in both cases shows irresponsible.
    I think that the angry kid’s video is more effective in denouncing global warming because the kid talks about much things that make you think more. But both videos are important for make us understand the consequences.

  35. Najda Bejo scrive:

    EYE: In this video my caption would:”things that we consider trivial, they will disclose the most dangerous”

  36. alessia mancuso scrive:

    The “ads of the world” that I liked more is the third image.
    More than anything else struck me and bring me now to reflect. Three questions in my head: “Why?” “Up to this point?” “We have really wanted it?”
    And I don’t find an answer, I believe that all this will change us in the future and the Planet will also have the right to revenge us.

  37. Arianna scrive:

    Interactive eye:
    1) The kid ask her dad whether there is a happy ending because she hear only sad things. She looks worried, for example, when her father shows her a picture with houses and buildings disappearing under the sea. The kid ask how will the story end, but it’s difficult to say. It’s only up to us.
    2) Global warming is the increase of the Earth’s average temperature. It is caused by us, by human activities. For example cars, processed food, dependency on fossil fuels are some of the reasons why global worming exist.
    3) In the photos I can see how the animals suffer and what the humans did. We canceled everything was green like trees with plants and we also polluted seas. The best thing for saving our Earth is starting recycling because if we respect the environment, animals will not have problems and they will not die because of us.
    4) Caption: Don’t waste water for the good of us and of our children.
    5) They are linked because both are denouncing global warming, but I think the first is more effective because it’ s more interesting ( for the story) and makes you think about how to take action for our Earth.
    6) Carbon footprint are the gasses caused by human activities like pollution. Even everything we want has it on carbon footprint because it came from the industries that consumes energy.
    7) They waste energy, water and electricity. To reduce their carbon footprint they could think about it and take action for example taking ecological means of transports and turning off the television if they don’t need it.
    8) REDUCE: To don’t waste we can produce things but not too big because It’s more usable produce a lot of things but more smaller.
    REUSE: Some things are reusable and some of them can’t be throw away.
    Recycle: like reuse
    9) We can reuse things
    10) Because in the future the situation of the Earth will get worse.

    -Video 1 Why is time ti take actions?
    It is time ti take actions because we can’t wait doing anything till the end of the Earth we have to save the environment.
    What does reduce, reuse recycle mean?
    Reduce, reuse recycle means that we can save the environment and we just have to stop polluting reducing our waste and we can reduce it if we reuse some things like dresses or pieces of paper, we also can reuse leftover food and we can stop polluting also if we recycle.
    What prevents recycle? How can we recycle?
    In my opinion lazy humans that think only of theirselves and don’t want to do anything for save the Earth. We can recycle throwing the garbage in the appropriate trash basket, paper in the paper basket, bottles in the plastic basket.
    -Video girl speech in 1992 How do you want to ale a difference?
    I want to do some little but very important things that can save the environment like recycle or turn off lights when I a not at home.
    -The 3R’s song
    What is the message delivered in this video? Do you like it? What would your ideal song to promote recycling be like?
    I like this song because it speaks about an important topic like recycling and the lyrics of this song express it in a very good way. I also like the rhythm of the song inasmuch as it is catchy and harmonious. My ideal song to promote recycling can be like this one but I think that the beginning of the song should speak more about recycling and less about numbers. The message delivered in this video is the same message delivered in the song that we have to reduce, reuse, recycle if we want to save the Planet and our lives.
    – social advertising
    Why does the kid ask her dad if there is a happy ending?
    I think that she ask her father if there’s an happy ending because children’ stories usually end with ” and they lived happily ever after” or “and the prince save is beloved from the evil dragon” so children’s are accustomed to have an happy ending, but this is social advertising so the people who made this publicity wanted that the world understand that we can save the environment but it’s up to us to do it.
    -who.org
    What is global warming? What is caused by? What can we do to reduce it?
    Global warming is the increase of Earth’s temperature because of the effect of greenhouse gasses like carbon dioxide or other gas. Global warming is caused by humans activities, by the humans choices and we can do some little things that can save the Planet. For example we can turn the thermostat down just one degree or use the washing machine only when it is full.
    – video children in the bath. What would your caption be?
    My caption is: don’t waste water
    -video another Greenpeace……
    Which one do you find more effective to denouncing global warming and asking for you to take action?
    I think this is a video that denounce global warming and the lazy adults that say:” global warming is not my proble, I can’t do anything for save the environment”.
    -what is carbon footprint?
    Carbon footprint is the measure of the impact that ours activities have on the environment.
    -wikihow.it is there anytime you could not follow? Why? What can you do to persuade your parents?
    At he moment I am doing lots of things and I can do the ones that I am not doing. I think that I don’t have to persuade my parents because they already recycle and do all they can for save the environment, they want a world without pollution like me.
    – photos bored panda
    What do this photos tell you? Why recycling is important?
    I think that these photos are horrible and when I saw the images I was shocking because it is terrible what happens at the animals because of humans. I think that recycling is important because we don’t have to see photos like this never more. Because this are not edited photos, this is the truth and we cause this so we must learn from ours mistakes and we have recycle and all the others things that can save the environment.
    – ads of the world ONU
    Which one do you like the most and why? Which ad has the stronger impact on you?if you are asked to create one yourself what would be like?
    I like all these photos because all express that we have to say no to global warming, but I have two favorite photos: the one with the ice cream Earth and one with the elephant that crumble. The images have got a stronger impact because make you understand what will happen in the next future if we don’t stop polluting.
    -two social advertising videos
    Which one do you find more effective to raise a young person’s awareness of global warming and climate change?
    I think that both the videos are effective to raise a young person’s awareness of global warming and climate change; but my favorite social advertising is the second because it is better expressed the concept of global warming. I also think that in the second video
    The depressed animals who commit suicide remain impressed in the minds of those who watch the video.

  39. Najda Bejo scrive:

    EYE: The Global Warming, italian translated into “Riscaldamento Globale”, it’s a phenomenon that cans cause devastating effects.
    The Global Warming is caused by human activities, for instance such as burning fossil fuels like oil, gas and coal.
    For riduce it, we can reduce the emission of greenhouse gases increasing use of alternative fuels and energy sources like natural gas, solar, hydro-electric and wind power. This can also be reduced by sustaining existing forest cover, improving the management of land and planting new trees.

  40. laura de franceschi scrive:

    QUESTIONS:
    -Why is it time to take action?
    It is time to take action because the world is changing in negative and this is also a negative thing for us. If we use too much the car, we will produce a lot of gasses that block sun’s rays in the atmosphere. The temperature increase and this produces a lot of problems for humanity and environment.

    -How can we recycle?
    We can recycle reused shopping bag, recycled cans, bottles and paper, used a holder of washing powder for another things, used old clothes in another way and reused bottles in glass or plastic.

    -What prevents recycling?
    Don’t make the collection

    -What does Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mean?
    Reduce means reduce packages and make one more big; reuse means use another time one thing, for example, use a package of yoghurt for rice; recycle means

    -Is there any tip that you could not follow? Why? What can you do to persuade your parents to help you stick to the tips and thus promote a better future for you and generations to come?
    I couldn’t follow point 1 because I don’t have time and patient for follow the compost; points 2 and 5 only to go to school. I go to school by car because my bestfriend’s mum has got availability to drive us to school but my parents tell me that I should go by bus, but when I go out with friends or I go to the gym I use a bike or a bus; in the ends I couldn’t follow point 10 because I love eat meat and I can’t eat only vegetables.

    -What is carbon footprint?
    Carbon footprint is your footprint that you leave on environment but not with your feet but through use objects that release CO2. More objects you use and more big is your footprint.

    -Why does the kid ask her dad whether there is a happy ending?
    Because she lives in this environment and she thinks this is a good thing for the future.

    -What is the global warming?
    The global warming is the increase of the temperature on the Earth. It caused by human activities and it has caused rising sea levels. It also caused by food production. To reduce it we can sealing doors and increasing insulation, turning the thermostal down and replacing an old boiler with a new model, swapping halogen lights for fluorescent or LED lights, using a washing machine and dishwasher only when full, it is better allowing clothes to air dry instead of using a tumble dryer. In the end we can adopting a vegan diet for three days a week and don’t buy processed foods.

    -What do the photos tell you? Why is recycling important?
    This photos tell me that recycling is very important for all people, animals and organism of the world. If we don’t recycle, rubbish finish in the see, lakes and river where live animals and plants. But we don’t kill only animals and plants.. we are killing us with our hands. I was shocked by this photos because I don’t think the world is so bad and I felt a disgust for this humanity.

    -I choose the first photo because I liked it a lot. The Earth is compare to an ice-cream that is melting and if we don’t recycle and we produce a lot of pollution, the global warming will increase more and more and than the problems are going to make worse and we can’t do anything more.

    EYE: In my opinion the tips you can follow to safeguarde our environment are all right.

  42. Leonardo Ferreira scrive:

    Kid Social advertising: The kid says those words because she usually reads well-end-stories, even if they present a bad situation in the beginning.
    Global warming: it is one of the most serious threats to our planet’s future that is caused by human activities. People can reduce it, turning down the thermostat, replacing an old boiler with a new model, swapping halogen lights for fluorescent or LED lights. We can also dry our clothes in the air or eating a vegetarian diet. Governments can act too: they can reduce their dependency on fossil fuels and increasing the use of renewable energy sources like solar panels, wind turbines, water wheels and biomass.
    Boredpanda’s photos: those photos show me something I have never seen before. I realize that pollution is a big problem we must resolve. Recycling is so important not to waste uselessly materials that can be reused.
    Greenpeace Global Warming Ad: my caption would be “Our sons’ unavoidable future”.
    The second Greenpeace Ad: it is linked to the other one because both the protagonists make people think about how the planet will be in the next few years. The baby is more effective because he has the classical babies’ innocence.
    Carbon footprint: it is a mark everyone leaves upon the environment.
    Carbon footprint advertising: these people waste energy by leaving the heater outdoor or the game console switched on, using the washing machine, driving the car, using too much water or travelling too. To reduce their carbon footprint they can do specific actions that they are not used to do.
    Reduce means using less resources now, for saving more later. Reuse means that something become useless can re-live another day. Recycling means converting something through processes into a new product.
    Video Two: Yes, it does. Recycling works because materials can be reused by converting them. People can even make money with it as the richest woman in China.
    The Environmental Guru says that inertia and superstion prevent recycling.
    We can recycle cans and bottles and even make money with them. We can recycle paper too: we put paper we don’t use in a box and when it is filled up, we take and dump it.
    This video inform me about what the global warming brings about; By watching it, people realize that if the glaciers melt, sea level will rise and there will be unavoidable, dangerous and fatal floods all over the world.
    It is time to take action because we are running out of it: in the next few years we are going to face some big problems like droughts, floods, tornadoes etc.
    The 3 R’s song: yes, I do but my ideal song to promote recycling would be a rock or metal song because it is more attractive to young people that are tomorrow’s citizens.
    Severn Suzuki speech: I want to make a difference by safeguarding the environment, making people think about this big problem and promoting the three R idea.
    Tips: Amazing! My family and I already stick to these tips. Surely we are going to keep this way!
    Videos and images at the end of the page: I really appreciated the video in which those animals kill them selves just because they can’t live any longer in that polluted environment: I got the message, an important message we all must get.

    EYE:
    -The child asks to her father because she see that the world when she live is trasformating in a worse place.
    -The global warming is caused by exhaust emissions by cars and factories and for reduce it we can go out by foot.
    -The images tell about the pollution created by us and how bad hurts to the animals and to the humans not realizing it. Recycling is an opportunity for who would live healthy. Also we spend less energy.

    -I like the second video of Greenpace because, for me, it is more effect then the other

  45. Annalia scrive:

    Ads of the world:
    I like the first image because represent how we are destroying it. The people continue to act in this way the world will melt, the glaciers will dissolve and consequently the oceans’ water will raise and the planet will submerge. This is the reason why the world will not be the same.

  46. Falvo Arianna scrive:

    Why does the kid ask her dad whether there is a happy ending?
    Because the story is sad and kids usually thinks every story must have a happy ending.

    What is global warming? What is it caused by? What can we do to reduce it?
    Global warming is the most important threat to Earth’s future and is caused buy human activities. We can reduce the number of tons of greenhouse gases turning the thermostat down just one degree or using the washing machine and dishwasher only when it’s full. By cutting the annual mileage of automobiles in half, drivers can notably reduce carbon dioxide emission. And by adopting vegan diet we can reduce their emission by 0.5 tons per year.
    By increasing the use of renewable energy sources we can reduce the greenhouse gases emission.

    Look at the following images. What do the photos tell you? Why is recycling important?
    The photos tell me that is time to act in favor of recycling, because many animals die because of environmental pollution.

    In this Greenpeace global warming ad we do not have captions in English. What would your caption be?
    Don’t waste water if you don’t need it necessarily.

    What is carbon footprint?
    It’s a measure of the environmental impact of individual’s lifestyle or operation, measured in tons of carbon dioxide.

    What does Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mean? They are three key words to eliminate waste and protect your environment.

    What prevents recycling?
    To prevent recycling you have to reduce and reuse.

    How can we recycle?
    At first we have to sensitise people that recycling is important for the nature and for human race because rubbish pollutes the environment, than we have to throw objects in the opportune bin to allow the recycling.

    What does this video inform you of?
    This video inform me that there isn’t an exit from our planet emergency.

    Why is it time to take action?
    The climate is changing and this is a problem because the cause is air pollution then we have to reduce it.

    Do you like it? Yes, I really like it because it’s easy but it has an intense meaning.

    Though this girl gave her speech way back in 1992, at the age of 9 she wanted to make a difference. How do you want to make a difference? I’m going to remember people to respect recycling, don’t waste water and energy.

    Is there any tip that you could not follow? Why? What can you do to persuade your parents to help you stick to the tips and thus promote a better future for you and generations to come?
    I’m going to repeat my parents to respect the environment.

    Project on the environment
    1-Why does the kid ask her dad whether there is a happy ending?
    The kid asks her dad if there is a happy ending because the situation was horrible, and so the little girl thinks that there won’t be a happy ending in this story.

    2-What is global warming? What is it caused by? What can we do to reduce it?
    Global warming is a phenomenon that consists in the temperature’s rising, and it’s caused by human activities. To reduce it we can, for example, turn the thermostat down, or adopt a vegan diet just three days a week; also swapping halogen lights for LED light can save the environment too.

    3-What do the photos tell you? Why is recycling important?
    The photos tell me that if we continue to pollute the environment and to profit by it, we will destroy everything in this planet, including ourselves. Recycling is important because it can prevent the situation will get worse.

    4-What would your caption be?
    If the temperature will continue to rise in future, the level of sea will continue to rise, and so one day it will flood lots of lands.

    5-How is linked to the one with the baby in the bathtub? Which one do you find more effective in denouncing and asking to take action?
    It is linked with the video of baby in the bathtub because they both talk about the future of the planet and the changes that could happen in the future if we respect the environment. I think is more effective the one with the angry guy, because he says explicitly what is happening in our world.

    6- Carbon footprint
    2.25 planets

    7-What is carbon footprint?
    The carbon footprint is a mark that you leave on the environment with every action that release carbon.

    8-What do these people do wrong? How could they reduce their carbon footprint?
    For example, the girl that had a bath, could have a shower instead of the bath, wasting less water. The guys with the open fridge, would have to close it, wasting less energy.

    9-What does Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mean?
    Reduce means that instead of lots of small packages we can use a few big packages, saving more for later. Reuse means that when we use an item one time, we can reuse it, so that we wais less materials. Recycle means that materials can be reused but before this we have to reduce the amount of materials and then also reuse them, and only at the end we can recycle them.

    10-Does recycling work?
    Yes it works, in fact people can also get money selling recycle products.

    11-What prevents recycling?
    Inertia and superstitions.

    12-How can we recycle?
    For instance we can reuse reusable bags, or also we should not throw away clothes that can be repurposed.

    13-What does this video inform you of?
    This video says that Earth is telling us that we are destroying the planet we live in, and if we continue like this, we are doomed to die because of our own actions, and there aren’t ways to escape from this planet.

    14-Why is it time to take action?
    Because warming caused by greenhouse gas takes a lot of time to reduce, therefore later we will start respecting the environment, later the global warming will decrease.

    15-The 3R’s song. Do you like it? What would your ideal song to promote recycling be like?
    I really like this song, especially because it’s really funny and the rhythm is very nice. My ideal song to promote recycling is similar to this song, but I would prefer a different lyrics, maybe more poetic I think.

    16- Tips
    -Is there any tip that you could not follow? Why?
    Yes, there is. I can’t create a compost heap because I haven’t got a garden, and also I can’t become vegetarian, because I love meat!  but maybe I can try to reduce the amount of meat that I eat.
    -What can you do to persuade your parents to help you stick to the tips and thus promote a better future for you and the generations to come?
    Unfortunately I can only try to talk to them and try to convince them that recycling is very important to save our lives.

    17-Imagine comment
    I chose the imagine of the ice-cream, because it is perfect to understand what are the effects of global warming, in fact now the Earth is like an ice-cream that is melting because of the heat.

  48. Elena Fogliato scrive:

    SOCIAL ADVERTISING:
    The kid asks her dad whether there is a happy ending because in the story she saw a lot of animals that died and maybe she understand that this story is the reality and she hope that the animals don’t die.
    GLOBAL WARMING:
    The global warming is the increase the temperature in effect the glaciers are melting.
    Global warming caused by human activities is one of the most serious threats to our planet’s future.
    We can turning the thermostat down just one degree, swapping halogen lights for LED lights, using the washing machine and dishwasher only when full, don’t using the tumble dryer, eating a vegan or vegetarian diet just three or seven days a week. Also we can increasing the use of solar panels, wind turbines, water wheels and biomass and people with this changes reduce a lot of greenhouse gas emissions.
    IMAGES OF ANIMALS:
    The photos tell me that there are a lot of animals in that terms and we did it and we are doing always.
    Recycling is important because we killed a lot of animals and we don’t do it again. Some animals die because some people throw the rubbish in the sea.
    GREENPEACE 1:
    The kids play with the water but the water is essential. Don’t waste much it.
    GREEPEACE 2:
    Maybe the boy understood how will be the future but the baby just understood there is a lot of water.
    I think that the video with the boy is more effective because he is very certain of how will be the Earth but also he doesn’t want to live in this world for this we have to do something.
    CARBON FOOTPRINT:
    It’s a mark you leave upon environment with every action that release carpets.
    These people don’t recycling and that cause the carbon footprint.
    VIDEO TWO:
    1. Yes, it does. In effect some people want to buy recycling materials.
    2. One is that there are a lot of garbage cans and that make confusing to people.
    3. We can recycling, for exemple, reuse a shopping bag and reuse the clothes because a lot of garbage cans are full of them.
    4. Because the climate change and caused by our mission of gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane that increase the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere; glaciers are melting faster than expected, sea level is on the rise. These impacts detroy people’s livelihoods and homes.
    THE 3 R’S:
    Yes, I like it, and it is tis my ideal song because are very important the three words “reduce, reuse, recycle”.
    HOW DO YOU WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?:
    I just want to change the things we do every day, because we wast a lot of energy and we pollute a lot.
    TIPS:
    No, there isn’t.
    Maybe showing them that tips because are very important.
    PHOTOS AND VIDEOS:
    1. I like the photo with the hand and over it the bears because you see that the glaciers are melting and it is a big problem today.
    2. I chose a photo with animals because they die to cause this climate.
    3. Both videos are more effective so I don’t choose one because they make understand how is the animals’ life.

  49. Giulia Martin scrive:

    -why do we ricycle? Answer: the images are telling us that we are not doing something to change and help the planet. It’s like if the Earth step by step is crimbling and the consequence of change is our own change. Recycling is important because is one of the best ways for us to have a positive impact. Is essential for cities around the world and for people are leaving in them; for example making products from raw materials costs much more than if they are made from reclyde products; recycling also uses less energy.

    -images: I liked the first and the third picture because the Earth with our negative help, it’s going to break. It is not deathles. More time passes, more we are detroying it. This caused the extinction of many animals. Plants suffer too. We are not realizing that we are hurting ourselves, we are changing ourselves.

  50. Sara Tonon scrive:

    Why is it time to take action? Because the climate change isn’t healthy for the environment and for the humanity.
    How can we recycle? We can recycle reutilizing paper, glass, plastic and everything that we can reuse.
    What prevents recycling? The recycle prevents a lot of wasted paper, knocking down of trees.
    How do you want to make a difference? I want to make a difference using less water and less paper and teaching the respect for nature to who does not know to do it.
    Is there any tip that you could not follow? Why? What can you to do persuade your parents to help your stick to the tips and thus promote a better future for you and generations to come? I follow all these tips every day. My parents taught me since childhood to respect the environment.
    What does Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mean? Reduce means to cut down the consumption; reuse means to use again that is to recycle every thing that we can recycle; recycle means reutilize all that we can.
    What is carbon footprint? Carbon footprint are the greenhouse gases product for the humans.
    What is global warming? What is caused by? What can we do to reduce it? It is one of the most serious threats to our planet’s future. It is caused by the human actives. For instance we can use the LED or use the wash machine only when full or use the solar panels.
    Why does the kid ask her dad whether there is a happy ending? Because the dad was telling her a story reguard global warming.
    What do the photos tell you? The photos tell me that in the World there is really a lot of noise pollution, environmental pollution, air pollution and industrial pollution. This pollution cause arm: for the animals and ourself.
    What would you caption be? I can caption it: The wasted water.
    Wich one do you find more effective im denouncing global warming and asking for you to take action? I find more effective the video without words because I think that the silence sometimes is better that the words.
    Which ad has the strongest impact on you? If you were asked to create an ad yourself, what would it be like? I like most the first photo, with the ice-cream. Because I think that
    It is a beautiful metaphor. This photos has the strongest impact on me. It be like simple but with a strong impact and it could say a strong message.
    I think that the second video is more effective because there are the animals. For me the animals have the strongest impact.

  51. Alessia Mancuso scrive:

    -Why does the kid ask her dad whether there is a happy ending?
    She asks this to her dad becuse she saw the orrible things in the history that her dad was reading to her,he saw all the sad animals and all the places going to be destroy. And she doesn’t understand how the thing going on and if like all the fairytales she want to know if there is a happy ending or not.
    -What is global warming? What is it caused by? What can we do to reduce it?
    Global Warming is one of the most big problem that we have now. It is cause by our,human activities. This is cause the rise of the temperature and
    rising sea levels, altered patterns of precipitation and changed ecosystems forever. If it continues, the results will be devastating for the planet’s people.
    -Look at the following images. What do the photos tell you? Why is recycling important?
    This photos tell us an important messages,but not everyone want to listen it. Save the world and don’t allow that all this pollution and all this dirt can destroy our world. But are us the culpables of this situacion. All this strange photos make we see how million of animals die every day for something that WE don’t stop! The recycling is important,is important to live better,to don’t polluse the Earth.
    -In this Greenpeace global warming ad we do not have captions in English. What would your caption be?
    The caption would be a silence messages,but we can undestand it by the baby. His mother let him alone in the bathtube with the tap water on. And the baby stay here without can do nothing but in his moviment we can see an help request: something the adults doesn’t think about the waste of the important things,they say that don’t have times,but don’t need time,need heart.
    -Another Greenpeace ad. How is linked to the one with the baby in the bathtub? Which one do you find more effective in denouncing global warming and asking for you to take action?
    This video is link to the video of the baby in the bathtub because all both send to all people a clear message:to do something. The second video,in my opinion,is more effective and denounce better the global warming because the children speaks about problem with an expression,he seems more old,and is quite angry. He asks we to take action,and he ask this with words,important words.
    -What is carbon footprint?
    Carbon footprint is an actual footprint, it’s a mark you leave upon the environment with every action that releases “Carbons”. Those are the harmful gases, which are pumped out by burning fossil fuels, And the more fuel is used, the bigger your footprint will be.
    -What do these people do wrong? How could they reduce their carbon footprint?
    This people don’t uderstand what they do every day,in their home or out,they consider all this activity right because it became a routine now. For reduce their carbon footprint they should be pollute less and take more attection with what they left around.
    -What does Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mean?
    Reduce,Reuse and Recycle are 3 steps to respect our Planet with the correct action. What this 3 words want to tell us is that everyone must to reduce a lot of wrong activities and pollution,reuse for example the t-shirt of the day before and recycle more materials and not throw it way!
    -How can we recycle?
    We can recycle just doing 3 important steps: Reduce,Reuse and Recycle.We have to reduce how what we pollute and the pollution and recycling all materials,above all the paper,the most waste.
    -What does this video inform you of?
    This video inform us of the actual situation of our Planet. It say that the future plans will be really dangerous for all people,and as we can see,there isn’t an emergency exit and maybe we don’t understand this. The world is going to became dangerous.
    -Why is it time to take action?
    Is it time to take action because the time for save us is going to finish! We must change the things and we have to stay around a big circle table and talk together about the possibile solution to help the Earth.
    -The 3 R’s song. Do you like it? What would your ideal song to promote recycling be like?
    I like this song and if I should make a song I think that I make it like this one! The boys joined the right words with the right musical rhythm. This song make you listen to it carefully and make you understand the really meaning of the argoment.
    I prefer a quite song to explain the Pollution situaton but with the same meaning
    -How do you want to make a difference?
    I’ve never think about this before now,because I saw the Pollution like a problem just for adults,I was too young to tell something true or right. But now thanks to this project,I’m very interested to this and I really want to change the things, How? It’s so difficult to say. I’m not a clairvoyant that can see how is the future..but I can imagine,it will be bad! I want to tell everyone to think about our happines,and without the nature,how can we be happy? I hope that the people listen our scream because it’s important!
    -Read the tips you can follow to safeguard our environment. Is there any tip that you could not follow? Why? What can you do to persuade your parents to help you stick to the tips and thus promote a better future for you and generations to come?.
    I don’t think that all people wil follow it. Now too,are very few the people who follow this advices. I think that I can follow it,because I really want to change the things. But needs care and attention because those are very important things to remember! I think that more the humanity go on more the generation will be lazy and dependent on technology. Later will be nothing to do,just now we can do something. If we still wait,we can hurt us.

    1)Because the girl after saw those bad images of people and animals who are not fine, would want an happy ending for those people, so this is a reason to fight for environment and help who is hit by the problems of the environment and just together all will be fine and positive.
    2)Global warming is one of the most serious threats to our planet. People can change this with small but significant changes for example, we can turn the thermostat down just one degree and this can save a lot even if it is not show, or we can swap halogen light for fluorescent or led lights and can be save 0.1 tons of carbon dioxide a year, very important, is if we adopt a vegan diet 3 days a week, it can be very good for our world and our healthy.
    3)It’s so terrible what these photos show. What makes me sad but even anger was see animals trapped in plastic objects and the death of other animals after ate plastic or other objects no edibles. So terrible were even the children swam into rivers or seas full of trash and oil spills.
    It is much better recycling because if we do not do, animals and people can die, so when we throw away something that it’s not thrown into a basket, we have to remember that exist animals with problems caused from all this.
    4)I think a caption adapt for this is: Don’t waste water, water is important for our lives, we can’t live without it. So think every day about what you are doing.
    5)The videos are linked because in both there is the main argoment about don’t waste.
    I found more effective the angry kid because I saw pain and anger in his eyes (it is an advertising but the kid performs his parts very well) and all of the kids must have a future but some adults don’t understand that if we continue like this there will be not a future for our kids and children.
    6)I did my carbon footprint and it results if everyone lives my lifestyle, we need 3,62 planet like Earth. That makes me think a lot, because the Earth is one, so it’s the time for change and recycling more.
    7)Carbon footprint exactly is the mark we leave on the environment, basically is how much we waste and spend. Today, it’s almost impossible product something that doesn’t come from factories, but at least we can reduce our footprint maybe living a life more healthy, so think to our actions and choices before do something wrong.
    8)They waste too much and maybe spend too for things that maybe they don’t even use. They can reduce their carbon footprint maybe recycling more, eat more healthy, use a bike instead of a car, these small things can improve so much their lifestyle.
    9)It means that in our life we don’t waste and spend too much, because we easily reduce things that maybe are not important for us, reuse things that they cannot throw away because they’re still important and recycle what can be used and reused because is still have a reason to be used. It is important don’t do like a lot of families that spend so much for things that they don’t even use, and this is so banal! So let’s do what these three words say because they have got an important mean.
    10)I think recycling is very important because is good for us and for our world, in the video how Patty Moore said, it is very well starting recycling since children, so in future you will have an education and more respect for the nature and the world.
    11) Well, recycling is very easy, we can do this with small but significant steps, for example we can use bike instead of car, we can use lights more cheap than others, don’t waste water while you are showering etc.
    This steps are important but very easy.
    13)This video helps me a little more to understand the problem of global warming.
    It was very upset at the end of the video the part where I saw ice falls into the ocean and many industries that were getting out smoke, a very bad thing to make worse pollution more than is now.
    14) After I watched this video now I’ve understood a little bit more what we mean for climate change, basically is caused by too CO2 in the air, that makes a lot of storms, hurricanes and tornadoes. Also, this problem can be melt ices and snow in the mountains, it is not a positive thing for the world.
    15)It is time to take action because our future of us and our kids/children are getting worse, we just want a better future. So we absolutely do something to improve this situation.
    Many industries and factiories have to control them and all the smoke that they get out, because they pollute the air more than what already is. We also have to use more the bike or the bus instead go by car. But we can also eat with a diet more vegetarian and halthy instead of things that can be dangerous for you and your healthy.
    So let’s do a better life as you can, recycling and don’t wasting.
    16)I liked so much this song, it has a really good content about environment, I think this song can trasmit with few words what is important for our planet, it says reduce, reuse and recycle, three important words that help us for a better world.
    17)I absolutely agree with Severn Suzuki. I’m worried like her about what will happen to the generations that are coming now.
    In the world there are so many poor children that haven’t got a house or a place where she/he can live, sometimes this is caused by the problem of climate change (how I said before climate change causes storms, hurricanes etc.) that destroys houses, so this problem interests also homeless.
    Even I would do something to interrupt all this, but it is not easy, because in the world there are people who don’t care about this type of problems so it gets worse, just if all the planet will be together, I think will happen something incredible for our future.
    18)I think all of that steps to help the environment are great and very important for ourselves. Maybe I will not do the step 1 because I’m not very clever in gardening but I always could learn something new. For the rest, more or less I almost do all about every day/week. For a best planet I think all of us should do at least 1 of these steps because thery’re very important for the environment, the nature and ourselves.
    So, in sommary, all of us every day should turn off the water when we’re brushing our teeth or showering, turn off the light if we’re not need it, go to school or to work by foot or by bike, or with a public transport instead of go by car, recycling all objects (plastic, humid, glass, paper etc.) and sometimes we can help our friends or parents to do housework and jobs like this.

    1. The kid ask her dad that question because fairytails usually have a happy ending.
    2. Global warming is one of the most menace of the Earthh. It is caused by human activities. To reduce it we can: sealing doors and increasing insolution, turning the thermostate down just one degree, replacing an old boiler with a new model, swapping halogen lights for fluescent or LED lights, using the washing machine and dishwasher only when full, cutting annual length in half, adopting a vegan diet only 3 days a week. Governments can reduce their dependency on fossil fuelsand increasing the use of solar panels, wind turbines, water wheels and biomass.
    3.It’s important to avoid pollution. Recycling is important to make pollution decrease.
    4.Do not leave children unattended and don’t fill up the bathtub too much.

    6.We can reduce it buying less electric tools. We can also buy an electric car (solar energy) and use the solar energy also for heating.
    7.It’s a mark you leave on the environment. The more you consume the bigger it becomes.
    8. They leave all electric devices on, they fill up the bathtub to the top. To reduce it they can pay more attention to these things.
    9.Reduce means use less things.
    Reuse means you can use things again also for different things.
    Recycle means that if you can’t use a thing, it can be another thing.

  62. Pablo Raspa scrive:

    1)Why does the kid ask her dad whether there is a happy ending?
    As the woman has said in the video’s end, it is up to us give an end to this story, because if we don’t stop this earth’s exploitation and this pollution, there will never be a happy ending.

    2) What is global warming? What is it caused by? What can we do to reduce it?
    The global warming is the degrees’ increase of the earth caused by the humans with industrial activities, deforestation, combustion of fossil fuels and the gasses issued by the industries. To stop this earth’s effect we can do small things but with a big meaning, for example we can begin to eat less, to use LED lights or to use renewable energy sources.

    3) What do the photos tell you? Why is recycling important?
    The photos say that our activities on the planet, don’t influence just the animals and the surroundings around us but we too. Recycling is very important because doing this we can save many natural resources and many energy required for the raw material production.

    4) What would your caption be?
    ”You are ruining our future”.

    5) How is linked to the one with the baby in the bathtub? Which one do you find more effective in denouncing global warming and asking for you to take action?
    All two the videos deal about the climate warming. In my opinion the video that denounce better the global warming is the second one, because it explains better the situation that we’re now.

    6) What is carbon footprint?
    The carbon footprint is every action that release carbons, for example gasses issued by the industries.

    7) What does Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mean?
    ”Riduce” means to use less the things, ”Reuse” means to think before take out something because it may be helpful to another one, ”Recycle” means to create something new with the garbage.

    8) What does this video inform you of?
    This video inform of the global warming causes.

    9) Why is it time to take action?
    Because our activities are changing the environment, prompting hurricanes, tornadoes ecc… and many people and families still without house.

    10) Do you like it? What would your ideal song to promote recycling be like?
    Yes, i like it for its melody but especially for its words.

    11) How do you want to make a difference?
    I want to make a difference helping the environmentists and doing what is better for the world.

    12) What can you do to persuade your parents to help you stick to the tips and thus promote a better future for you and generations to come?
    I will tell to my parents to use less the car and use more the bycicle or take public transports more often and i’ll tell to them to reduce the amount of meat and eat more vegetables.

  63. Najda Bejo scrive:

    EYE: I like so much the song “The 3 R’s” because i think it is a original song. But i don’t know what would my ideal song to promote the recycling becuase i still much to learn about recycling

  64. Najda Bejo scrive:

    I choose the last video because it makes us think that for our fault many animals suffer and many animals are extinct.

  65. Elisa scrive:

    1) The kid in the video asks her dad if there is a happy ending because the end isn’t written, but not only. Her father reads this words:” Maybe they could save the land for the children”. The little girl “belongs” to the children, she is one of them and so she is interested, curious and maybe worried about her future. I think she puts herself in the shoes of the children that, in the story, pay for adults mistakes, and maybe she wonders if the reality narrated in the story is so distant from hers.

    2)Global warming is the gradual increase of Earth’s temperature and it’s caused by human activities and greenhouse gases. To reduce it, we can use alternative fuels and energy sources (like solar power), we can plant new trees and also shift to locally grown food (reducing the fuel used to transport the goods). As regards food, we can adopt a vegetarian or a vegan diet.
    3) These photos tell me we are in danger, the results of our comportment is relapsing on us and other organisms, starting from animals. Recycle is important because it reduces trash and it slows down the production of waste.
    4) In the video of the baby in the bathtub I would put the following caption:” wasting water is dangerous not only for ourselves and our planet, but especially for other people, that in the majority are unaware”. We shouldn’t be stupid, we should pay attention, for our sake and for the sake of people we are surrounded by.
    5) This video is linked with the boy’s one. Both these videos show us how wrong actions made by adults reflect badly upon innocent and young people. In my opinion the video of the baby is more effecting because it is not based on furious words but on tragically true facts.
    6) Carbon footprint is like a mark we leave upon our Earth with actions that requires carbon.
    7) These people leave a carbon footprint on the ground, in facts some of them use the washing machine or the car, and some watch television. To reduce their carbon footprint, they should reduce their energy consumption, for example using less the car and paying more attention (like three men in the video: while they’re chatting, they forget to close the fridge).
    8) Reuse means using a material again, also for a different purpose. Recycle means changing waste materials so that they can be reused. In this case, reduce means limiting our consumption and, consequently, the waste.
    9) Recycle works, and you can also make many the way of it. So there are people who think it is worth it, maybe for the money (like some riches in China) or maybe in the interest of the environment.
    10) Recycle prevents us from wasting objects or materials one day we’ll can reuse. Time and again we buy a lot of things we could do without, and we do it just because we waste a lot, without knowing we could recycle something.
    11) We can recycle and reuse in a lot of different ways. If our objective is to do an action for the good of our planet making profit, we can throw something like a can in special containers, and you receive a small amount of money. You’ll enjoy it, and the environment too. As regards re-using, any container or food container can contain something different from what it contained before. A beer bottle can be reused as a water bottle, or a laundry soap container can become a flowerpot.
    12) The “Blue Men Group of Global Warming” video made me understand that Earth is sending messages to us through increase of hurricanes, tornadoes and lots of disasters caused by them. We have to listen to our planet’s messages, otherwise we put in danger our lives.
    13) Many climate events are increasing, like tornadoes and hurricanes. Now it’s time to take action because our climate is changing and we have to adapt and, meanwhile, try to reduce our footprint before it’s too late.
    14) I took for the 3 R’s song, I found it funny but at the same time meaningful. My personal song to promote recycling would ground on the slogan I wrote: “Let’s recycle for a greener future!”.I think slogan like this make people reflect upon the future and the problems maybe we’ll have, and not only upon the situation of today.
    15) I was speechless after reading Severn Suzuki’s speech, because she was too young but so mature for her age: she had understood the problems of our planet, sadly caused by us. Her words make me think that we have to take action, starting from little good deeds. I want to make a difference giving the best of me in my daily life, for example I am going to spend less money on clothes and turn off the light when there is no need.
    16) I’m sure I could never become vegetarian, because I eat a lot of meat. I like meat (provided it is not horse meat), and I eat it almost every day. It’s an important food for the body, and it’s also tasty. Therefore I think I could never eat less meat. In this respect I can’t help the environment, but in other respects I can, and my parents can contribute to. For example, I am going to turn off appliances when I am not using them, or I am going to use windows to regulate the temperature.
    17) The imagine I like the most is the first, where Eath is compared to a delicious and yummy ice-cream, but it’s liquefing. Like an ice-cream in summer, our planet’s days are numbered, if we want a future we have to act now.

  66. Guerra Arianna scrive:

    Why does the kid ask her dad whether there is a happy ending?
    In this video the kid asks her dad if there is happy ending because she see the animals and the people die, under the CO2. The adults mistake and the children must pay for them, but maybe someone can save the planet for the future generation. She is worried for her future, for her life. I think she undestunds this story and I’m sicure that she will make something for the environment.

    What is global warming? What is it caused by? What can we do to reduce it?

    Global warming is the the increase of planet temperature (Earth atmosphere and oceans water). It is caused by human activities in fact we only can reduce it sealing doors and increasing insulate, turning the thermostat down just one degree saves the same amount, and replacing an old boiler with a new model ,sapping halogen lights for fluorescent or LED lights and using the washing machine, dishwasher only when full, by cutting annual mileage in half, drivers can reduce carbon dioxide emissions, adopting a vegan diet just three days a week; by reducing their dependency on fossil fuels and increasing the use of renewable energy sources instead. By increasing the use of solar panels, wind turbines, water wheels and biomass (Governments).

    What do the photos tell you? Why is recycling important?
    By the photos I can undestund that many people and many animals in the world must live in the pollute air because another people don’t respect the environment. They think the planet is only for them. For this some animals are deform and they must die for the people rudeness.

    What would your caption be?
    In this video the mum opens the faucet and crams the bath for her kid; She wastes the water. The capition would be “If the water don’t need you, close the faucet and don’t waste it.”

    How is linked to the one with the baby in the bathtub? Which one do you find more effective in denouncing global warming and asking for you to take action?
    Both children give the blame to the adults that do nothing for save the environment. The first video, because it is seen that the mother prepares uselessly too much water for her son and wastes it.

    Measure your carbon footprint and learn something about it and how we can reduce it.
    Footprint: 4.75 planet

    What is carbon footprint?
    Carbon footprint is the amount of greenhouse gases produced from human activities, usually expressed in carbon dioxide (CO2). For example, when I use the car, when I heat my house with the oil, gas, coal or electricity I produce directly or indirectly one certain amount of CO2.

    What do these people do wrong? How could they reduce their carbon footprint?
    These people wrong because they waste the resources of the planet. They could reduce their carbon footprint using the washing machine only when full, using less their car, turning off the video games when they aren’t used them, don’t fill the bath, closing the fridge and turning off the TV with the interrupter.

    What does Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mean?
    Reduce means: reducing your consumption or buying less. (If you have a brother bigger than you, you don’t buy a new t-shirt, you use his t-shirt).
    Reuse means: To use something that is considered past its usefulness, again (usually for something else).
    Recycle means: To break down and reuse component materials. (Ex: paper, plastic…)

    What prevents recycling?
    Recycling prevents the pollution and dirty city, saves our (and animals) life, protects and keep order in the environment, can give new life to many things. Recycling improves our life.

    How can we recycle?
    We can recycle throwing a something like a can or a bottle in a special containers (you receive a small amount of money), taking our bag when we go tu the supermarket, using a bottle of detergent and transforming this in a planter and converting a beer bottle in a water bottle.

    What does this video inform you of?
    I undestund what is happening in the world. If we want save the planet we must help us, hear and see the world emergencies.

    Why is it time to take action?
    Because if we don’t do anything now, the world it will stop exist. We are already ruining it and must do something immediately to save the planet.

    Do you like it?
    I like it because the author, starting from a number, talks about three very important things: reduce, reuse and recycling.
    What would your ideal song to promote recycling be like?
    My ideal song to promote recycling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1IDFsN2xec (to play the instruments, with the recycled instruments).

    How do you want to make a difference?
    I’m amaze from this video. Suzuki is a very young girl but she already has the clear ideas about the problems of the planet, and the reasons of these. Her words take me to think that we have to take action, starting from little good deeds for help our Earth. I should start to make something. When I have a shower I’m going to turn off the water.

    Read the tips you can follow to safeguard our environment. Is there any tip that you could not follow? Why? What can you do to persuade your parents to help you stick to the tips and thus promote a better future for you and generations to come?.
    I don’t follow the tip number 10, because meat is a very important food for our body. I eat a lot of meat and I love it. It gives me a lot of energy. In this, I can’t help the environment but in another things my parents and I can help the world for the future generation.

    SOCIAL ADVERTISING
    1-How do you want to make a difference?
    I see that the Earth is in danger. I’m not so brave to speake in a conference but I want to help the Earth therefore I decided to recycle and to encourage also my friends to do this.
    2-Why is it time to take action?
    Because the conditions of our planet are making worse and if we don’t take action the Earth will die and we will die with it.
    3-What is carbon footprint?
    It is a mark that you leave above the environment with every action that releases carbons.
    4-What does Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mean?
    Reduce:good things can also come in one big package, so you can reduce packagi.
    Reuse: you can give new life to empty containers with a little invention, so you don’t have to manifactures other.
    Recycle: recycling process uses plenty resources in itself therefore we have to first reduce, then reuse and at the last recycle.
    5-How can we recycle?
    Using recycling bags for shopping. In some countries you can get money taking bottles or cans back. Instead of throw away clothes you could ripropose them.
    6-What prevents recycling?
    Superstitions and inertia but people don’t even recycle because in the different cities there are many different recycling systems and they are confused on how to recycle.
    7-Which one do you find more effective in denouncing global warming and asking for you to take action?
    I find more effective the one where you see a boy explains that his future depends from the choices of todays adults.
    8-Why does the kid ask her da wheter there is a happy ending?
    Because she sees many disasters and the story doesn’t explain how it ends because it’s up to how we act from now on.
    9-What is global warming? What is it caused by? What can we do to reduce it?
    Global warming is the Earth’s temperature rising. It is caused by human activities that generate greenhouse gases. We can make small but significant changes. For example, sealing doors and increasing insulation, turning the thermostat down just one degree, replacing an old boiler with a new boiler, using fluorescent or LED light, using washing machine and dishwasher only when full, using solar panels, wind turbines, water wheels and biomass.
    10-Why is recycling important?
    Recycling is important because it’s a way to remedy at humans mistakes. People get dirty and ruin the Earth but with the recycling we can do something to help the Earth. We must understand that our pollution also hurts the animals and the plants. So we must to take care of the environment.

    11. It informs us of global warming.
    12. It’s time to take action ‘cause there is a global warming that leads to more hurricanes or floods. If we can reduce gas emissions, the global warming will decrease. The way the climate will change depends on our decisions.
    13. Yes, I do. It would be a song with a nice and simple rhythm, understandable words and a catchy chorus.
    14. It tells us that if global warming goes on there won’t be emergency exits on this planet.
    15. We have to know if something doesn’t work, or works, how can we make it better?
    16.It made me understand a lot of things and know something that I didn’t know beforelike all the passages of the recycling of plastic. Recycling makes a lot of confusion to people because you don’t know what to put where.
    17. If we want to recycling you have to start from the beginning of your life. Your parents have to teach you that.
    18. To recycling, for example, you can: make confetti with pieces of paper, reuse a bag. With recycling you can get money. In someway you can always recycle.
    19. I want to make a difference helping the planet: recycle, decreasing gas emissions, using water only when it is necessary.
    20. I think I could not follow the 4th tip because what do you do if you have to reach a far place?
    I think I can persuade my parents telling them what is happening to the Earth and how we can help it even if my parents already know it.

    OUR REASON TO LIVE
    Save the planet,
    Don’t be disrespectful with the world you live in,
    It is all for us,
    We can’t do this,
    Stop polluting, stop wasting, stop.
    Our planet can’t hold up this anymore
    So, why don’t you do something?
    For example starting recycling, helping the environment,
    It’s not a bad idea,
    We can recycling,
    We can waste less,
    We can adopt another way to live more healthy
    Well, I absolutely will start this, what about you?
    This can make a lot of smiles
    Because adopting this style
    People will be more happy
    Trust me
    It is not a joke,
    If we continue doing this
    We are involving our lives in a dangerous lifestyle
    Save the planet,
    is our only reason to live
    and I think most of us want to live an happy life
    So stop!

    The world around me
    The world around me
    is getting more and more polliuted.
    And all I can see
    is we all need to stand up and fight for it
    ‘cause the world around me
    is gorgeous
    and I wanna make it a better place
    for me and the next generations.
    We can all do something to save our planet.
    The more little things we do together
    the bigger ill be the result.

    The ad that had the strongest impact on me is the 6th because it gives the idea of a world that is crumbling down.
    If I were asked to create an ad It would be with suffering and undefended animals.
    They are both really effective especially the second one because you can see the suffering of the animals that seems like the human one.

    Poem

    – We pretend to be blind –
    The Earth is sending us a message
    We pretend to be blind
    But she cannot continue forever.
    We have to look at what is happened
    And understand that we exaggerated.
    We can save the world from the ruin,
    Open your eyes and take care of it.
    The Earth is our home
    We should not get dirty the place where we live.

    Mother Nature
    Yellow, white, black or red.
    It isn’t important skin’s colour:
    all people must respect Mother nature!!
    The nature’s gifts for us are different;
    she gives us flowers, trees, land, sea, sky
    and everthing which we need;
    and we should love all this.
    Love nature!!

    My circle
    with a breath I’m born in a clean country
    with a breath I’m grown
    with a breath if I choose pollute or not
    with a breath of lucidity say no
    with a breath I choose my way
    with a breath I want to live
    with a breath I think you
    I think how you have to work for a cleaner world
    the union is strength
    when
    with a breath I go away

    My poem: POOR CATERPILLAR
    Today I saw a stupid caterpillar.
    Its home was the leaf
    of a very tall tree.
    The caterpillar often chucked wood
    when it had nothing fun to do.
    One day it started to chuck the twig
    that connected its home to the trunk.
    After a while, nothing
    was holding the leaf anymore
    and it fell down.
    And the caterpillar died.
    “So stupid” I thought.
    “But aren’t human beings
    who know what’s gonna happen
    and still destroy everything
    even more stupid?”
    asked the dead caterpillar.

    —-

    And this is my ad.

    END ON by Guerra Arianna
    I look around and see any grey. I ask me:
    “What is happening?”
    We are ruining the Earth and it hates us,
    The trees call us for help while buildings fall one by one, like a dominoes,
    The animals call us for help while undefended they die causes of the pollution,
    Some people call us for help while they are fighting for a better world;
    And now I call you for help,
    Do not destroy the nature with a knife
    Give it with your heart a new life.

    Poem
    Lots of us think that money is all.
    But they don’t know they can find all in Nature.
    Let me show how It is:
    Nature is wonderful
    Nature is energy
    Nature is colorful
    Nature has got just one enemy:
    us, because we pollute
    and Nature dies.
    Nature is wonderful
    Nature is indescribable
    Nature is powerful
    Nature is irreplaceable
    So we don’t have to waste what nature give us because it is all we have.

    POEM

    Our place, my place
    Every day is the day of the Earth
    We have to take care of her
    Not only one day bt every single day
    We can do everything possible
    Imagine if one day the aliens will come hier
    Pollution, smoke, gasses, cutted trees…
    They will probably think we live in a dump
    The Earth is the strongest of the five elements
    Why do we continue to crumble her?
    We must stop thinking about taking care of her is a work that we can shelve
    So start changing something, starting from your everyday life!!

    POEM: “I promise you” by Najda Bejo
    We are the generation that doesn’t care about anything. We are people who dont’t think of the future damaging the present.
    I promise you the best of me.
    I promise you that there will be always someone that will take care of your plants.
    You gave us a place to live and deserve the best.
    One person doesn’t makes a difference but i promise you that we will try together.
    I promise you because your wonders i want to have in my future.
    For these reasons… i promise you.

    The Green Lung of the Earth
    There is a green land in the other side of the Earth,
    a natural lung of the whole humanity,
    extremely abundant of amazing landscapes,
    rivers, fauna, flora and native population.
    There is a green land in the other side of the Earth,
    faultlessly suffering despite having done nothing wrong.
    Deforestation, exploitation, pollution, unfair treatment
    bring about the impoverishment of the area
    bring about the desperation of the people that land is home to
    bring about the doom of the green land in the other side of the Earth.
    Time is running out
    the sons of the ones who do not care about this now,
    will take care about this tomorrow…

  88. Pablo Raspa scrive:

    ”The earth were our home.”

    The forests were our oxygen, now money are our oxygen but our poison too.

    The oceans were our soul, now petroleum is our soul but our havoc too.

    The air were our breath, now the industries’ gasses are our breath but our death too.

    The ground were our backing, now the trash that we’re treading is our backing but our quicksand too.

    The earth were our home, now… It’s becoming a hell, created by who? By us.

    Do we want to protect the world? Good but we must change it before.

    poem: Nature
    Nature is everywhere
    and we live in it;
    Nature is beautiful, is colorful,
    it smells sweet, a smell of flowers, seas, mountains and trees.
    with a wonderful voice, a voice of nightingales, whispers and lullabys.
    We are part of nature,
    and nature is part of us.
    But we are destroying it,
    and so
    we are destroying us.
    When nature suffers because of a chopped tree
    or unbreathable air
    We suffer too.
    We don’t want to respect nature,
    and so nature won’t respect us.
    We might be destined to live in peace in a wonderful world
    But we decided to betray nature, so
    we’re doomed to live in a ruined world
    with sorrow and darkness
    with errors and mistakes
    with sadness and tears
    and without the beauty of the wonderful nature.

    Ads:the ad that has more impact on me is the first one.I like it because I think it reflects the reality.In this imagine the Earth is an ice-cram and it is dissolving because of our wrong treatment.If I was asked to create an ad myself I think I would create a pic wit a not normal human-being,like an OGM with terryfing face that hit directly the person who see that.
    EYE:
    1- The kid asks her dad if there is a happy ending because she cares about the animals of the story,she is afraid of what will happen to them and I think she hopes that they will find a solution
    2-Global warming: is the increase of the Earth’s temperatures because of greenhouse gassesm,for not recycling and for wrong things that humanity did,even in the past.It depends on human choices.To reduce it we can do(in our little) some things.We can learn how to recycle and not waste.We can plant more trees that help the situation or maybe we can sign a petition agains deforestation.We have to diminish pollution.
    We can turn the thermostat down just 1 degree or replaicing an old boiler with a new model.We can use washing machine and dishwasher only when full saves.Allow clothes to air dry instead of using a tumble dryer or adopt a vegan diet sometimes.
    3-The photos tell me that what we do will reflects on animals and on us and that animals cannot grow-up if we continue to pollute.Recycling is important to safeguard the nature and the palce we are leaving in.Recycling makes the Earth a better place.Polluting the environment will ruin ourselves.There are a lot of imagines that should inspire to recycle.
    4-My caption for this video will be like :”use just what you really need” because I think that this video is for demonstrate that we should not use water more than we need.
    5-This video is linked to the one with the baby in the bathtub by the behaviour of adults and the consequences that there will be especially for new generations.
    The mother wasted water and in the kid’s point of view this action is one of the common mistakes that adults make.
    6-Reduce means less packages,reuse means you can reuse old packages for new things with a spare of money.
    What prevents recycling?:
    -in US there are different legislations for each state so they have not a single national law for recycling
    -one single action can make a difference for the environment,we do not need to do a lot of things but we can change the world making little steps.
    Does recycling work?:
    -If you do not put things in a recycling sistem,trash will end in a landfill
    -the recycling glass process needs lawer temperatures than starting a row material(sand)
    -people can make money out of recycling
    Recycling video one:
    -people have a lot of different believes about recycling
    How can we recycle?:
    -steps to be a good recycler 1.people can get money from recycling 2.at the beginning you will have little money but with time they will increase 3.use those friendly money to reward yourself for recycling
    What does the video informs you of?: This video sends a message to America about the dangers of global warming and our bad habits
    Climate change explained to you:
    -lot of CO2 flight up to the air
    -airplanes make a lot of CO2
    -CO2 makes air more hot and this is climate change
    -is because of gas emissions in a much shorter time
    -glaciers are melting faster ,sea level is rising ,cyclones will become more frequent
    -it depends on our lifestiles and economical activities
    -reduce gasses emissions and adapt our lives to this new climate
    -climate projects can helps us using good decisions
    TIPS:I can follow all of this tip and I can try to persuade my parents to take attention of all the things we can make to help me stick to the tips and thus promote a better future for us and generations to come.
    What is carbon footprint:all of the actions that involve carbon like carbon emitted by cars.
    Everything that surrounds us has his carbon footprint.Is impossible to leave no carbon footprint behind but there is no reason to stop trying.
    My carbon footprint:we would need 2,76 planets if everyone lived my lifestyle.

    I found the most effective the first photo.
    The only image explains if we don’t do anything, our planet will “melt” like an ice cream so the life in it won’t continue. So why don’t we do something to prevent this?
    Many of us don’t want the life on the earth stops.
    And if I’m asked to make an ad, I’ll probably choose an animal or even a person in serious conditions to understand people how our lives and our planet are getting worse.

    After seeing the videos, I chose the one which makes me more interested and at the same time even a little bit sad, the second one.
    I immediately saw the pain in the eyes of those animals. They were so unhappy of that life so brutal. The moment that strikes me so much was when the animals killed themself, I didn’t expect this. Seeing the monkey while he was hanging itself was terrible, also when I saw the polar bear falls into the ocean to drown and the kangaroo while he was killing itself throwing onto the platforms while the train was passing.
    These things are so terrible for animals but also for people. We haven’t to die because of what sorrounds us, it’s not worth it to us, to prevent this we must help our planet even if there is people who don’t care about this, we will win but only if the world will collaborate.
