The consequences of these processes
Outcomes and Indicators
Look back at the students' table of decision-making processes and view the consequences of the decision-making at each level.
Start by getting students to evaluate the consequences of their own decision-making and move through the levels of government.
Consequences might include improved air quality, air quality monitoring (e.g. the M5 East stacks), enforcement including prosecutions, removal of products or the right to do something (e.g. the removal of CFC propellants) and education programs (such as this one) etc.
Try to find examples that demonstrate a positive impact of the decision-making processes.
