Religion and the Environment

The Religion and the Environment Project was funded by a GEST Grant. It involved four secondary RE teachers who created the following materials for the benefit of all RE and Humanities Staff within the City and County of Swansea and the County Borough Council of Neath Port Talbot.

The materials are in Powerpoint format with a number of linked Word and audio files. The presentation is well suited to being displayed on your school's interactive whiteboard for the benefit of all pupils, being interactive, informative and stimulating.

View of BP Chemical worksThere is information on world religions - Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism, as well as information on environmental organisations and images of the area around Neath and Port Talbot. You will also find a section on different types of pollution and a range of ICT based activities.

The Religion and the Environment project is cross-curricular in nature and can be used as a teaching and learning resource.

Notes: Although the Powerpoint presentation can be run in linear fashion by simply clicking the mouse or pressing the space bar, it has been designed to be more interactive. Look for text that is underlined which you can click with your mouse to jump to different sections. If the mouse pointer is hidden, move your mouse back and fore a few times to show the pointer. The Main Menu boxes will take you back to the start of the presentation. Some links will open up Word documents, so you will need to check that you have Word on your computer. In the Images of Your Area section, clicking on a thumbnail (small) picture will open a larger picture.
