News & Events
On April 22nd, 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson from Wisconsin, America, launched the first ‘Earth Day’, with the aim of bringing more attention to the impact the human population was having on the environment. This began as a student campaign, but it soon grabbed the attention of the media in America, and by 1990, it was a day that was recognised globally.
It is thought that, at present, Earth Day is marked by over a billion people annually. The effect of the growing population on climate change is becoming more obvious, and what we can do to help is more publicly spoken about, being widely covered in the media, and it is often discussed in political forums.
If everyone were to make small changes to their daily lives, the impact on our environment could be huge, changes such as:
- Walk where you can – don’t take your car on short journeys
- Reuse or recycle – this will decrease production, cutting carbon emissions from the point of extraction, right through to manufacturing.
- Use less energy in your home – turn the lights off, don’t leave taps running, or turn your heating down.
LearnOnline try to do our bit to help the environment; by participating in our self-study courses, we reduce the need for learners to travel to and from a place of education, this gives flexibility in their learning, but also reduces their carbon footprint. Also, as a team we continue to work remotely, cutting down on our travelling significantly. We offer for our learners to be sent second hand books, where available, and we have reduced how much we print as a department by 90%.
Maybe you want to do more than a little bit, and wish to study courses that will enable you to move into the field of science or environmental studies, so can you make a bigger impact on the Earth and its future.
