    Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.

    Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

  • Reflection Question
    Economy & Communities Learn About The Economy & Communities SDGs
    What was a linking factor across this group of SDGs?

    Amit Tripathi's avatar
    Amit Tripathi 4/25/2022 6:44 AM
    While the SDGs are broadly framed with 17 separate goals, they inherently interlink with each other forming an indivisible system with the three dimensions of social, economic and environmental. On the one hand, achieving one goal or target may contribute to achieving other goals or targets.

    Economy & Communities Online Energy Audit
    What most interested or surprised you about your energy audit?

    Amit Tripathi's avatar

    The purpose of an energy audit (sometimes called an “energy assessment” or “energy study”) is to determine where, when, why and how energy is used in a facility, and to identify opportunities to improve efficiency.

    What are the climate and disaster risks in your region?

    Amit Tripathi's avatar
    Amit Tripathi 4/25/2022 6:42 AM
    Disaster risk is expressed as the likelihood of loss of life, injury or destruction and damage from a disaster in a given period of time. The definition of disaster risk reflects the concept of hazardous events and disasters as the outcome of continuously present conditions of risk.

    Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources that are naturally replenished on a human timescale. It includes sources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.
