Participants explore how the three sectors - for-profit, nonprofit, and government - each contribute differently to protecting environmental interests. The young people research organizations and determine their own personal level of commitment to environmental concerns.
Learners recognize that our valuable natural resources are maintained and cared for by government, business, nonprofits, and individuals. The three sectors (and individuals) work together to accomplish what any one of them cannot do alone.
Learners investigate and share information about environmental organizations, particularly around the Flint Water Crisis, to compare and contrast how the three sectors differ in their purposes, goals, and achievements.
