Why this petition matters

Started by Nadren Sarip

Humans were able to exist together with other living and non-living creatures on this planet, due to a healthy ecosystem. It is utterly implausible for human beings and other creatures to live without the presence of a healthy ecosystem. Thus, we humans, as the most intelligent creatures existing in this world should be the ones to maintain its healthiness, by taking care of it through conservation and developing sustainability. To further understand this argument, let me define first these terms; conservation, and sustainable environment altogether. According to the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment (2022) of the University of New Hampshire, environmental conservation and sustainability are centered around a vision of a future where people live with respect for the Earth's natural systems and each other. "It is a practice that paves the way for protecting the environment and natural resources on the individual, organizational as well as governmental levels" ( Edu, 2022). There are many importance of environmental conservation and sustainability to us, humans, the ecosystem, and Earth as a whole. The following pointers are just some of the major importance of it:

  • To reduce air, water, and land pollution
  • To facilitate the conservation of natural resources for our future generations
  • To ensure the protection of biodiversity
  • To implement sustainable development
  • To restore the ecological balance
  • To save our planet from the harmful repercussions of global warming. 

Now, let's move on to several ways of conserving nature, and to develop a sustainable environment. Every individual can do this even at a young age. Just the simple way of picking up the trashes from the ground, and maintaining the cleanliness in your surroundings can have a positive impact on nature and the environment. But to have a greater impact, these are the best things you can do as an individual:

  • Practice proper waste segregation
  • Eating sustainable foodstuffs such as veggies and fruits. 
  • Buying sustainable products. •Reducing electricity consumption in our homes to decrease the amount of carbon dioxide emission in our atmosphere.
  • Try to participate in some youth and organizational activities in saving nature. 

These are highly recommended, particularly to all youths like me. In these practices, we can help in conserving our nature, and achieve a sustainable environment. Moreover, private sectors such as businesses, company owners, and corporations that are focused are urbanization and industrialization, to increase the economic growth of their respective countries, are not exempted regarding this subject. I believe, they are the ones who must cooperate the most and show bigger contributions as they are the most likely to destroy nature. They should follow all the rules, guidelines, and protocols in accordance with the law before implementing any projects, such as building some infrastructures, urbanizing rural areas, mining, etc., to assure the proper procedures in implementing the said project, and to not cause harm, and any damages or destructions on our nature in the process.
