Okay, so this is all that i've got in my revision booklet for TOPIC 5;
Make sure you know what an ecological footprint is (Amount of land used for consumption and waste production)
->So things such as in salisbury and winchester, they have pretty much the same circumstances, however, winchester has a lot more pollution etc, (due to people trravelling to and from, people are rich there so they spend more on holidays abroad, they get expensive products etc)
Footprints differ between countries because:
->Some people consume more than others
->Consumer goods are different (fridges, that kinda stuff)
->Buy imported goods (coffee, food) So food miles are bigger
->Own and run more cars, contribute to CO2 levels, which contributes to Global warming
->Spend money on foriegn holidays
->People generate mroe waste.
->Peopel consume less due to lower incomes
->Many grow thier own food (low food miles)
->People either walk or cycle
->Electricity is expensive so not many people have it.
So a case study that could be used is:
"How is London reducing energy consumption?"
Okay so this includes things such as the Congestion Charge (its really expensive so no one wants to use it)
For a sustainable solution thing u coudl say stuff about Bedzed?
Green consumerism may come up.
It includes Farmers Markets (less food miles, its good for the local community), Barclay Bikes (encourages people to use bikes and not cars) And improved Public Transport (so cheaper fares, making them nicer, so peopel want to use it. Less CO2 emmisions), it includes Recycling.
Yeah, thats about it i think. I hope it helped
Thats all that my revision booklet that my teacher gave me says :P
