Defined as practices and programs that will protect and enhance human and natural resources needed by future generations to have the same quality of life as now or better than our own.
An interest in sustainability and concern for the planet’s well being can enhance family and community life and change the perspectives of others to become more ecologically sustainable as well
Increase awareness of nature
Increase well-being within the family as a unit
Help to make the future way of life the same if not better then it is today
Increase the cohesiveness between family members in sustainable behaviors
What do you think would be the best way to get families to be more sustainable? (Monitor water usage? Carpool? Recycle? Hike to become aware of nature? Plant a tree or garden?)
Do you think that sustainable tactics can be taught through therapy? And do you believe that these ideas can bring families closer together?
Do you believe it is more important for individuals to work on being sustainable or work in a group (as a family)?
