What green initiatives do you know about in New York City? Look into places like Chelsea Piers, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, or general initiatives in the city as a whole and tell your classmates a bit about what you learned. Don’t write about the same thing one of your classmates has already covered.

What are two more green initiatives you think  New York City, New York City businesses, or New York City residents should implement? (Try not to say the same thing as your classmates.)

Think of a single other country in the world that you have experience with (perhaps the country you’re from or a country you’ve lived in or know a lot about). Are they more or less environmentally conscious than the United States? Give three examples comparing the two countries to explain/back up your claim.

Also, if you did not finish the Silicon Valley worksheet, complete it and turn it in on Tuesday as well.

Read this chapter and be prepared to discuss it on Tuesday. There is no homework before Tuesday other than the reading, but you will have some homework to do from this chapter before Thursday, so keep an eye on the OpenLab.

Unit 3: Chapter 1 Homework

Do you know where the food you eat comes from? Is it from a local or international source? How do you know?

In what ways could you eat more locally? What changes could you make? Are you willing to make these changes? Why or why not?

Be as detailed and as opinionated as you like. You may speak about a personal experience, or just discuss the idea in general.
