What is the presentation about?

The first video addresses the following: (1) What causes climate change (also known as global warming)? (2) What are the effects of climate change? Learn the impact and consequences of climate change on the environment and our lives.

In the second video, Sir David Attenborough explains how humans can take charge of our future and save our planet.

In the third video, a short film, spoken word artist Prince Ea makes a powerful case for protecting the planet and challenges the human race to create a sustainable future.

The fourth video presents the reality of plastic pollution and the danger it poses as one of the biggest known threats to the ocean, influencing all ecosystems – from beautiful coral reefs to abyssal trenches and eventually accumulating in our own food. This video suggests how to upend the current system of produce-use-discard and how to transition to a system that promotes the reuse and repurposing of plastics.
