HAPPY DAY, MY DEAR EARTH!

On April, 22nd we'll celebrate Earth Day.
But we are destroying the Earth (our planet!) faster than ever.
As teenagers, you will inherit(=heredar) the planet. You will need to find ways to go on with human progress, without destroying the Earth in the process.

Recycling programs in our school, conserving energy in your home, and keeping water clean are just a few actions you can take in your community to help the planet. We can educate people to change their habits to have a better future for our Earth.
How big is your (footprint) impact on Earth? Do you really want to know? Do this QUIZ (1st-2nd ESO) or this QUIZ (3rd-4th ESO).
Surprised?, OK,
What can you do?
Now, send me your opinions, suggestions, and play these easy
GAMES, or design your own BOOKMARK(=señalador de libro) to celebrate this day.

Ohh!! In the quiz, my answer is 2.7 worlds!! I think that this quantity is very big... :-(!
I read the solutions and I will try do all the possible to help our world.
I see that we don't take care it, I am often very sad because the people only see for itself, and in these situation I think that the world is lost at complete and is a really sorrow.
But 'The Earth' isn't in the worst position, we can see many good things and their pretty meaning. Maybe so we can recover our wonderful world: the normal temperature, green woods, free spaces... If everybody collaborated in this,it would be better than now!!

Dear, Luis, here's the correction: The aim of this initiative is to show the whole society and specially the politicians the need to control the climatic change and to act by using the renewable energy and educating the people to help the environment.

There has come a moment to act against the climatic change. It is necessary for us to tell everybody about which products can be recycled and which containers we must use.

Now it's time for humankind to see how important is the planet where we live.

Chari my result is 3,5 ii's a good result, isn't it?

Or do I have to improve it?
