For exploring the global interconnections and responsibilities which come with the everyday things we purchase and use:
These books are great resources for HASS teachers, particularly if you are teaching …
HASS Geography Y6 – “A Diverse and Connected World” – Australia’s connections with countries (e.g. trade, migration, tourism, aid, education, defence, sport) and how these connections change people and places (ACHASSK141)
HASS Business and Economics Y6 – The impact consumer purchasing decisions can have on a family, the broader community (e.g. purchasing from the local growers’ market or a supermarket chain) and the environment (e.g. pollution, waste) (ACHASSK150)
Did you know that “should the global population reach 9.6 billion by 2050, the equivalent of almost three planets could be required to provide the natural resources needed to sustain current lifestyles”? [UN.ORG]
and that every year we “dump a massive 2.2 billion tons of waste”? [THE WORLD COUNTS]
You can see some ways in which your teaching and learning for global citizenship and sustainable development in HASS can be part of meaningful global action for a just and fair future for all here:
