Breaking News: 2021 Elections and Updates on Climate Change

The National Water Regulation Agency (NWRA) released a report today expressing concern that greenhouse gases emitted into our atmosphere by human activities are contributing to global climate change. In a series of speeches and Tweets, both Presidents Bullock and Campbell, condemned the NWRA for releasing this report without an opportunity for their “green team” to review and revise its content. The President’s unofficial “green team” includes Hydrotopia staff members, lobbyists from fossil fuel-based industries, as well as Secretaries of Community Development Griffin and Parise.

Breaking News: Water Crisis Strikes

Assignment Overview

The National Water Regulation Agency (NWRA) reported that significant amounts of pollution currently exist within the waterbodies of all Grifflock and Parbellistan communities! According to NWRA’s water monitoring stations in each community, non-point and point source water pollution contamination appears to be coming in a variety of forms, and is causing these communities to exceed the water quality standards set under the previous George W. Obama Administration. The exact sources of pollution, and degree to which they exceed water quality standards, do vary in each of these communities depending on the community’s context. Follow this link for the full break down on what communities must do to address these issues.

Breaking News: Launching of Community-based Development Projects across Grifflock and Parbellistan

Project Overview

 

Starting Tuesday, August 29, 2017, consultant teams, comprised of four ENR 3500 students, will work to guide the community development process of one of eight communities in Grifflock or Parbellistan over the next semester. They will also be monitoring and evaluating the development trajectory through a series of “spiraling up” or “spiraling down” processes.

 

This new, innovative project is designed for communities (and their development consultants) to understand the interconnections between capitals (human, cultural, social, political, financial, built, and natural), as well as find new ways to highlight assets, build resilience, and overcome socioeconomic and natural shock events. Residents have been encouraged to go about their daily lives, and welcome these groups into their communities with open arms.

 

“We can do better at the community-level by leveraging local assets to generate sustainable economic development that doesn’t compromise our nation’s precious environmental and human resources.” said an enthusiastic Joe Campbell, President of Parbellistan. “After speaking with President Bullock, as well as Secretaries of Community Development Parise and Griffin respectively, it’s clear there are a lot of opportunities emerging in Grifflock and Parbellistan as well. We at the national-level of government are excited to observe and support these placed-based strategies to leverage community assets across our respective nations. “

 

While the communities are currently anonymous, it is suspected that names of the 16 communities will be revealed in a few weeks. Insiders tell the World News Network (WNN) that along with the identity of their chosen community, groups will also release pictures of their location, a brief history of the area and its people, and at least three of their development goals and action plans to reach those goals. If so, we will all have a better picture of who these communities are and what they are aiming to achieve. WNN plans to keep you up to date throughout the whole process.
