The Power of One: The Impact of Family and Consumer Sciences Education on Environmental Sustainability
Thompson, Nancy E.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v102 n2 p64-67 2010
The issues related to environmental sustainability can be overwhelming. It is difficult to imagine that actions of one person could make a difference. This article addresses that perception and illustrates the impact of one person, a family and consumer sciences educator, on the lives of others and on environmental resources. Making a difference is a strategy well suited to the classroom.
