Our environment is constantly changing. There is no denying that. However, as our environment changes, so does the need to become increasingly aware of the problems that surround it. With a massive influx of natural disasters, warming and cooling periods, different types of weather patterns and much more, people need to be aware of what types of environmental problems our planet is facing.
Environmental education is extremely important, especially in today’s age. Ensuring that new generations understand the importance and significance of the environment, and how to protect it, is important as the survival of the world is dependent upon it. Pollution and greenhouses gases amongst many other things interfere with environmental well being on a regular basis. Providing the proper knowledge to future generations will help to ensure that the steps are taken in order to be proactive to care for the environment in order for it to flourish.
At Youth Initiative for Sustainable Human Development in Africa (YiSHDA), we seeks to create a platform for environmental awareness among young people by giving them the opportunity to make real difference to their own quality of life, their local community as well as contributing to the future well being of the planet.
