If you could create something that would spark a huge change…
I’m not sure it’s a ‘creation’, but I would introduce mandatory environmental-related courses, workshops, activities and in-field work in schools, from first grade up to highschool included.
Sensitizing children to the environment at an early age is morally right, healthy, educational, entertaining and economically efficient.
I guess the ‘creation’ part would be creating a curriculum which would put this into practice.
Exactly Mary! Going outdoors (to do some activity) it’s essential.
Carlo and Mary, I always thought this (on top of what we just said): if every person gave only 1 day a year volunteering to some environmental-related activity (planting trees, pop-up stand volunteering, etc.), wouldn’t the world be a better place?
I then think what if it were 2 days a year… but enough dreaming.
…or, dare I say it, but three days a year?
This has been one of my favorite articles of yours, Mary: https://matadornetwork.com/life/therere-one-way-save-earth/
Teaching children to protect the Earth sounds like a good place to start.
