Sustainable Living: 3M FuturewiseTeachersStudents3M

Sustainable living

Sustainable living is important for everyone on the planet. We can all do our bit to reduce our personal impact on the environment – and this free website contains lots of helpful tips for living a 'greener' life.

But society also needs scientists, engineers and new technology to help solve the problems of the future. And to have enough scientists and engineers in the future, we need to ensure today's students are inspired to select STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and
Maths) when the time comes to choosing qualifications.

As a technology company,
3M understands society's need
for scientists. Our community
programme
in Ireland is
therefore focused on supporting
the teaching of STEM subjects.
Designed for use with 11–16
year-old students, 3M Futurewise
looks beyond the obvious
advice and considers the issues
surrounding sustainability.

Whether you are a teacher,
a student, a parent – or just
interested in sustainable
living – we hope you enjoy
3M Futurewise.
