A model exploring the challenge of less pollution
This model is part of a series of models that could serve as examples for small models on global challenges as they could be modeled by pupils. Of course, depending on their age and the time that is available as well as the help you offer they could come up with more details.
What is the model asking?The model asks for the measures for a healthier environment using the KNOW WHY Questions from the KNOW WHY Method as they show up when we use the iMODELER. It starts with the different forms of pollution and then continues to reflect on their underlying reasons. Interestingly it turns out that the underlying reasons are rather psychological. The Insight Matrices should help to get a deeper understanding.
As a basic model it is possible to model this topic with 10 years old children.
Time10 years seem to be a proper time scale to think of long term developments, also. Short term then would refer to things happening within one year, mid term within 5 years, and long term things that take longer than 5 years.
Colorsgreen for measures
yellow for targets
orange for indirect reasons
red for direct reasons
System Boundaries - what is not included?Well, there is probably a lot not included. You should document that here .....
Note:Behind this model are some interesting insights from a project done for the federal environment agency of Germany. We explained how our need to feel integration and development leads to the consumption and the values that prevent the much needed transformation of our society.
