SPARK A DISCUSSION

Complex issues become more accessible through conversations so we want to help you spark a discussion in your high school or at home.

The mini-videos below feature a professor from each of our departments in the Faculty of Environment, sharing information on important environmental topics. We hope these will spark a classroom discussion, or a discussion with friends/family, and also help high school students to see where their future university studies could lead them. 

The discussion topics in the series include:

  • How has the pandemic redefined our relationship with physical space? 
  • What are some of the consequences of a wildfire?
  • How can understanding the past help our future? 
  • How might fisheries management affect your future?
