ESS IB syllabus is expected to contain practical scheme of work including practical activities and individual investigation. As seen from the above, it covers both range of topics: Humanities and Sciences. Topics of ESS IA that are more on Humanities side are: Foundations of environmental systems and societies, Water and aquatic food production systems and societies and Human systems and resource use. However, since ESS IB syllabus is very well written, we can’t really draw such a restrictive line between these two.

– Understand the growing environmental issues in the world around them
– Acquire the knowledge regarding environment
– Become aware of the links between human and natural systems
– Become aware of the environmental problems
– Propose certain solutions to growing environmental issues
