3: A-Z of Sustainability (Part 1)

Hello lovely people, welcome to our eleventh episode, an A-Z of Sustainability- Part 1! We thought what better way to educate ourselves on environmental terms and share our learnings than following the trusty alphabet. Have you ever wondered what biodiversity, deforestation, horticulture and a circular economy actually mean? Or what the term "just transition" is all about? Have you heard rumblings of the IPCC or Ireland's Climate Action Plan but never knew where to start? We tackle all of this and more. We hope you enjoy listening to this as much as enjoyed researching it! *Unfortunately Clodagh's mic had a mind of its own on this recording so she does sound like she is underwater in certain sections. HOWEVER, the content is still great. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to navigate the virtual waters of recording over Zoom! As always, thank you for listening. If you enjoyed this episode or any previous episodes please do like, subscribe and share a review. We'd really appreciate it :) All our love, Katie & Clodagh SHOWNOTES: Word of the year: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/nov/07/climate-strike-named-2019-word-of-the-year-by-collins-dictionary The Guardian changing language in relation to environment: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/may/17/why-the-guardian-is-changing-the-language-it-uses-about-the-environment A: Activism: This is a document with so many collated resources to aid our shared learning and understanding of systemic racism, white privilege and how to be anti-racist:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1U3DVqtfv-SAQ3Vq0VDVSylfo15a_4mj7aZPiUXcZ5e4/edit The Albedo Effect: https://www.skepticalscience.com/earth-albedo-effect.htm B: Biodiversity: https://greenschoolsireland.org/biodiveristy/ https://www.theguardian.com/news/2018/mar/12/what-is-biodiversity-and-why-does-it-matter-to-us // Biodegradable vs Compostable: https://bioplasticsnews.com/2019/04/13/what-is-the-difference-between-biodegradable-compostable-and-oxo-degradable/  C: Climate Action Plan: https://www.dccae.gov.ie/en-ie/climate-action/publications/Pages/Climate-Action-Plan.aspx D: Deforestation: https://www.livescience.com/27692-deforestation.html https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/global-warming/deforestation/ // Downcycling: https://www.buschsystems.com/resource-center/knowledgeBase/glossary/what-is-downcycling E: Circular Economy: https://www.ellenmacarthurfoundation.org/circular-economy/concep // Eco-cide: https://ecocidelaw.com/the-law/what-is-ecocide/ // Ecosystem: https://biologydictionary.net/ecosystem/ F: Fossil Fuels: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/energy/reference/fossil-fuels/ // Forest Bathing: https://time.com/5259602/japanese-forest-bathing/ G: The Gulf Stream: https://blogs.ei.columbia.edu/2020/01/02/climate-change-gulf-stream/ // Greenwashing: https://www.lexico.com/definition/greenwash H: Horticulture: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3B6iRgUgmI I: IPCC: https://www.ipcc.ch/ J: Just transition: https://climatejusticealliance.org/just-transition/
