  • Reflection Question
    Health and Education Fund Family Planning
    When family planning focuses on healthcare provision and meeting the expressed needs of women, it results in empowerment, equality, and well-being, and the benefits to the planet are side effects. Why is family planning an important civil rights consideration?

    Women should have autonomy over their own bodies. Family planning is critical to protecting this right.

    Replacing my manual thermostats with smart ones will positively impact my life in several ways. First, it will be fulfilling to know that doing so can lead to more efficient use of energy in our home. Second, it will be convenient to have climate control that is learning and adapting to our living habits. Third, it will likely result in lower utility bills. Fourth, I won't have to worry about having forgotten to turn the thermostat down when leaving the house!

    Taking action on climate change is important to me because climate change is the greatest threat to human society that we have ever faced and how we respond to this challenge will be the defining moment of our species.
