Victoria, Katelyn, Melodie   Religion and culture have the power to shape us as human beings, down to our core beliefs. Though, it is surprising to see the amount of impact it can have on our ecological beliefs. More specifically: climate change and the air of denial surrounding it. Some religions do not see the need to personally care for the environment, believing that their God is in charge of everything that happens to the world. Others, in their culture, engage in practices that are more taxing on the environment than we believe.

David Normand, Guillaume Fraticelli, Étienne Poirier   Transportation by cars represents 12% of all Green House emissions all around the world. It has become a part of our daily lives and has been an industry in continuous development. Companies fight to make the fastest, prettiest and strongest car compared to other competitors, while what they should actually do is design the most efficient, low consuming and environmentally friendly car they can.

Balance is what keeps the earth together. As David Suzuki said, our survival is based on an interaction, an equilibrium, between air, water, land and the living. However, for the past decades, climate change started to disturb this natural balance and causing impacts on every aspect of one’s life. For instance, forests have been big victims of those impacts. In fact, for many years, Canadian forests have been living in harmony with the forest pathogens, each one having a positive impact on the other.

Victoria, Katelyn, Mezen, Ariane, Nicolas   The beginning of industrialization brought a wave of new technology, as well as a wave of problems no one had anticipated. Climate change has had and continues to have negative effects on human health. In China, people are forced to wear face masks to avoid the air pollution around them. In 2003, Europe, more than 70 000 people died due to an intense heatwave.

Matthew Hill Umrick Singh Luka Guenette Larocque The Effects of Climate Change on Hockey As more years go by, the future of hockey becomes more and more endangered due to global warming and climate change. Any professional hockey player will tell you that playing pond hockey and on outdoor rinks was critical to their achieving success. Climate change is slowly putting an end to outdoor hockey in the winter and some cities have already completely lost their ability to do so because they can't maintain solid ice long enough to be able to skate on it.

Eliminate vampire powers as they use electricity from our electronic recharging devices. Leaving your devices plugged but not in actual use can eventually add up to an increase in 10 % in your electricity bill at the end of the month. Every year, October is known as the energy awareness month where we must try to be more aware about the electricity we consume in hopes of having less of a carbon footprint (turn off our lights, unplug chargers,etc.). Turning off your water as you brush your teeth csaves 6 litres of water per minute.

Green investments refer to investments in activities that are considered good for the environment like projects committed to conservation of resources, production, and development of alternative energies, clean air and water. They fall in the category of socially responsible investing (SRI), but are more focused on environment. There are three big sectors: renewable energy, eco-living, and green buildings.

In the article “How Urban Design Perpetuates Racial In equality- And What We Can Do About It” by Diana Budds it is discussed that cities are shaped by the people who plan them. For centuries, in the United States of America, these people where mostly racist and discriminatory. Urban policies like the Housing Act of 1949, passed by congress, helped forge more divisions in various cities. Laws like these helped push slum dwellers out of their homes and on to the streets. Another gravily dividing factor is public transportation and access to it.

As I sit here writing this, I am wearing my lucky socks. Do they actually work? Am I luckier if I am wearing them? Apparently, the answer is yes, just so long as I believe that they are indeed lucky. This is because belief can affect our cognitive processes and consequently our emotions and actions. Think of it as being very much like positive visualization. So, wearing one of my funny t-shirts, probably my "Happiness is bicycle shaped" one, can make me happy.

In the article “Beijing's smog: A tale of two cities”, the authors Joshua Berlinger, Steve George and Serenitie Wang demonstrate the negative effects of smog on the heath of people in Beijing and the Chinese society. By doing so, they want to help people to better understand the catastrophic effects that the air-pollution has. If people can know more facts about this issue, then they can also potentially improve the situation. The authors start the article by describing the equipments that a high-income Chinese family uses to purify and filter the polluted-air in their home.

The article “Violent Crime Is on the Rise in U.S. Cities” by David Johnson from TIME tackles the striking increase in violent crime in many of the United States’ most populated areas in 2016. Despite being far from the kind of violence that was present in 90’s, for a second year in a row last year, data collected from 61 metropolitan police agencies showed significant jumps in homicide, robbery and aggravated assault. Throughout the article, many factors are mentioned, such as gang violence, gun ownership, violence linked to drugs and even conflicts that start on social media.

Health care has skyrocketed in the U.S. in the past decades due to increasing rates of obesity. The cause of this is that Americans are buying unhealthy products. This phenomenon can be decreased by changing the store’s structure. When going to the supermarket, the essential products, like milk or eggs, are placed in the back. This way, costumers must walk through the store, and they see many other products, which leads to unplanned purchases. The most common unplanned purchases are sugar-sweetened beverages and other junk food.

This article discusses the problem of homelessness in New York City and outlines a few solutions.   New York City has a growing homelessness problem. It has reached its highest level since the 1930s with around one in every 135 adults being homeless. Around 130 thousand people are currently homeless, most of which sleep in shelters. However, some must resign themselves to sleeping in the streets or in the subway. Most of the homeless are from minority groups such as African-Americans and Latinos.

          Put in motion in 1994, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has created the relationship we know today between the US, Canada and Mexico. Since its creation, over 40 000 000 jobs were created. There are also no more taxes if it comes to trading goods between those three countries. Not only that, but their economies have also doubled.

Since the industrialization, human population has grown exponentially. Through the use of environmentally-destructive technology and overconsumption, the consequences of human action have grown to a global scale, endangering life itself, and in the years to come, population growth is bound to play an even more important role in climate change. Though an easily avoidable problem, short term planning is completely detrimental to long term human and environmental conditions because it encourages the use of environmentally-damaging technologies for immediate economic convenience.

Just like most of what others said, this is relevant to many people which consists of student's feeling anxious or depressed. I myself find sports a remedy, giving me time to forget about the things I feel stressed about and just focus on having fun and improving. Although this can be very pertinent in someone's life, you guys didn't go deep in the details of this project. It's vague and hard to understand what the outcome will be. I have some questions that could help the understanding and thoroughness:
1.How will you promote this encouragement towards playing sports?
2.Will this project be set up as creating teams?
3.Will someone help you fund this project?
4.How much will it cost?
5.If you're someone who needs a distresser, should you feel stress about trying this out?
6.If so, how will you make people feel comfortable getting out of their comfort zone whether or not it's with stress
These are just few things you need to consider. I think that the idea is good but more information about it could help not only us critiques but the people you're encouraging understand the purpose a bit better.
It's a good idea, and I'm interested in seeing the final results:)
