Sustainability Research and Presentation

Sustainability Presentation

In Technology subjects at NSG we use a model called the sustainability compass. In groups of two research the topic of sustainability in relation to the project you are completing.



You are to complete a 6 minute presentation that covers the following points

  1. What is sustainability?
  2. What is the sustainability compass?
  3. How can you use the sustainability compass to ensure we produce ethical and responsible products?
  4. Is timber a material that is sustainable? Justify your answer.
  5. Is plastic a material that can be used in a sustainable way?
  6. What is the difference between sustainability and environmentally friendly?
  7. Discuss how your design fits into the the 4 dimensions of the sustainability compass.

    Hey Mr Morrison,
    Just want to clarify the last question about how the design fits into the 4 dimensions of the sustainability compass. As we are working in groups of 2,what is the so- called ‘design’ we are meant to be using. Mine or my partners or a group idea?

      Hi Renee

      You should be working in the presentation in groups of two. Each person would answer this question individually. The design referred to is your own design.
