Environmental Sustainability and Fitness

Environmental Sustainability and Fitness
    • Welcome

      Welcome to my course on environmental sustainability and fitness.

      Often we have images like the one above of someone doing yoga out by the ocean or in a field of green to depict what it's like to be out in healthy and out in nature. The problem is the misunderstanding many have that nature is something we drive out instead of understand we are in nature and nature is us. Therefore many of our current fitness choices have a direct negative impact on planetary health which by proxy will affect your overall health too. 

      What I would like to do with this course:

      • Outline that our choices as consumers can have a negative impact on both the planet and our long term health
      • Who this affects and the financial implications of these choices
      • Why your decisions need to have more than a singular short term outlook.
      • Where you can put your money to do the most good
      • Unsustainable mental toll having a one sized fits all health approach has.

      I hope you take something away from this to use in your everyday life and share this information with those around you.

      It's not a bad start, but some of the wording doesn't make sense (like the author has changed their mind about what they were going to write but hasn't fully deleted the previous wording before retyping) and there is a heavy reliance on external videos to get the message across. Also, there's a link on the bottled water page that obviously don't go to the video the author intended it to! This course may introduce certain new concepts to people but it doesn't really go much further than that.
