GREEN is a part of a ground-breaking new series, the National Geographic Learning Reader Series. This series brings learning to life by featuring compelling images, media and text from National Geographic. Through this engaging content, students develop a clearer understanding of the world around them. Published in a variety of subject areas, the National Geographic Learning Reader Series connects key topics to authentic examples and can be used in conjunction with most standard texts or online materials available for your courses. Access to a media-enhanced eBook is included with each reader. The twelve articles in this single-themed reader are inspired by our changing relationship with the earth, based on an understanding that the planetas resources are finite and that our future depends on preserving them. While the term green signifies a level of awareness about environmental concerns, it is used here in the broadest sense, to draw studentsa attention to the state of the planet and to promote discourse on how to address the needs of the human population as well as the ecosystems that sustain life in our world. To what extent we see ourselves as members of a global community and to rethink how we will meet the growing needs of our population in the future are the two central questions this collection asks readers to consider critically.
