Caring for nature should be intrinsic to our lifestyle not because of anything but as we are part of it and our life depends on it. As the foundation of life on earth, we should learn to live in harmony with nature. From minute actions to industrial destructions, unimaginable harm to nature & fellow species have led us to the point of no return.
Still, there is hope if we use this hour to reconnect with nature, take or support initiatives that are sustainable, and moreover call out destructive actions and cultivate leadership skills to build an accountable, transparent, and rational system to lead us to the future.
As future inheritors of the planet, young people should have a say in their future for not to inherit a planet of crisis, unlike our predecessors.
