In support of the worldwide campaign of the Green Generation

State of the Environment

Environmental restoration and conservation comes from a deep appreciation of life.  This awakening to wonderful realities and all its forms is a product of one’s own experience with Mother Earth, with her majesty and grandeur.

The fast-pace of human activity has greatly affected all living beings on the planet. Humanity’s increasingly wasteful lifestyle has had a striking effect on the environment which has been going on for decades. The most noticeable of which is climate change.  This is has created a momentum in the evolutionary process of all living species, which has resulted in the extinction of several important species.

Sustainable development is integral to the environmental movement. There is, therefore, an urgent need to focus efforts to raise the consciousness of the youth to the level where they can better appreciate the issues involving the environment and in the long run, influence the course of the planet and humanity’s existence.
