As environmental educators, it can be easy to focus on problems like climate change, deforestation, and extinction, but that can have negative impacts on young generations. Rather than inspiring them to care more, this can sometimes have the opposite affect by causing young people to feel helpless to make change. We can combat this by fostering a sense of place in our students, focusing on local ecosystems, and encouraging them to see nature all around them. A focus on local solutions gives us a chance to see how just a few people can make a big difference. We can inspire others by emphasizing tangible actions that they can personally take, since it always feels better to do something about the problems you see. Small adjustments to these lessons may be all it takes to change someone’s outlook!
