Environmental Communication! 400 level

Recall that we discussed the meaning of environment in our last class. We said you have to first understand the concept of environment before talking about what environmental communication is. We also discussed environmental problems in Nigeria. I believe by now you know the environmental problems in your residential area.

Answer the following questions.

1. List at least five environmental problems in your area (where you live). Make sure you take a photo of at least three of such problems to be uploaded on whatsapp during our quiz.

2. List at least five major environmental disasters that happened across the world within the past six months. Mention exact city and country where it happened, type of environmental disaster, date and casualty level (if any).

3. Define environmental communication in pidgin English.

4. Translate the following into Spanish language

a. Environment

b. Environmental communication

c. Climate Change

 

Deadline for this quiz is 9pm on Tuesday, May 14.
