First thing is identifying the environmental issues related to this community before moving to the next step.
Preparedness for learning Based on the statistics, most people in this community are ready to learn, the turn up number supports this idea. After an interrogation with one member of the community, it is clear they have issues with their environment and are prepared to tackle them.
Learning theory to use A concept of Nightingale’s environmental theory which states that a patient needs fresh water, food, cleanliness of both the patient and the environment can be used (Medeiros et al., 2015). It can apply to the community during teachings.
Objective/ Goal This is the last criteria for learning and one of healthy people 2020 objectives is used. EH HP2020-6: Improve the utility, awareness, and use of existing information systems for environmental health (Medeiros et al., 2015).

Cutting of trees, This problem mainly affects the land, as it reduces rain and increase wind blow. The problem has majorly affected this community and most believe that saw mill industry boosts the economy. A nice approach to this problem is by educating everyone in this community (Harper et al., 2017). Telling them the importance of planting trees and the effective results. Soil erosion will reduce when trees are planted.

Proper sanitation This can be measured by identifying how diseases have increases or decreased within the community.
Improving living standards Can be measured by the number of people living in poor areas.
Barning factories and industries Easily identified after visiting existing factories to see if they are still working.

Evaluation of goal

The main goal is to pass the knowledge of protecting the environment to the community and this can be achieved by setting good examples and using illustrations such as books and videos. It can also be achieved by ensuring everyone has fully understood importance of protecting the environment which is by the end of the week.
