Environmental Care Zone
Our actions can affect the environment, in both positive and negative ways. Protecting the environment starts with everyone’s personal behaviour and their impact on their surroundings, which extends out to the whole planet. You might care for the environment at school or at home – do you watch out for littering and use recycled paper? Are you careful about your energy and water use?
Lots of scientists are working to protect the environment, working with both local areas and big industries. In this zone, you might meet scientists working with companies to reduce their pollution, or researching new ways to turn our waste into something useful.
