Brainstorm what you might be able to do for each:

As a group, decide on the best choice using your matrix.

 

Application:

 

Create a presentation/persuasive speech (approx 1 min) for cabinet meeting or for parliament to convince people of your point of view.

Use your weighting and scoring to help you.  

share speeches

Goal reflection:

Did your matrix confirm what you thought would be the case or did it highlight options you hadn’t expected?

  In your opinion, what is the best combination of prevention and mitigation measures and why.
