Environment & Sustainable Development: Preservation, Protection, Care and Sustainability
We need to empower everyone with knowledge to act in defense of environmental care and protection. Climate change and 21st century environmental justice are some of the world’s most complex problems. To effectively respond to these challenges, citizens must be appropriately educated and prepared. For Earth Day 2017, we shall engage the community to lead promoting Environmental and Climate Literacy. Now more than ever in recent history, people around the world are hungry to engage in public policy. It is up to all of us to use this unprecedented opportunity to build the change we need through our ENVIRONMENTAL & CLIMATE LITERACY Education which is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet, empowering everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.
Climate change is a much anticipated phenomenon that has earned “global attention” status. Its cyclical pattern ‘crept’ upon society and gained a momentum that suddenly has many government debating, projecting, tracking and strategizing in an effort to slow its ‘movement’. This marked the end of preceding epochal changes of climate when the cycles of cooling and warming unfolded slowly. Today, factors responsible for this sudden velocity in climate change ‘stands’ within close proximity yet seems untouchable/unstoppable. At AGL we educate, share and seek discussions on the various mitigating strategies to make attempts of arriving at a ‘best’ possible solution.
Sustainable Development (Environmental, Economic and Social well-being for today and tomorrow). Sustainable Development is a development that meets the needs of present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It’s a process that envisions a desirable future state for human societies in which living conditions and resource-use continue to meet human needs without undermining the integrity’, stability and beauty ‘ of natural biotic systems.
Our focus on Sustainable development does not only describe neighbourhood, town, city or region, we teach about Sustainable Development and its benefits. What citizens can afford or want differ from community to community. Sustainability continually adjust to meet the social and economic needs of its residents while preserving the environment’s ability to support it. It uses its resources to meet current needs while ensuring that adequate resources are available for future generations, it seeks a better quality of life for all its residents while maintaining nature’s ability to function over time by minimizing waste, preventing pollution, promoting efficiency and developing local resources to revitalize the local economy.
A sustainability resembles a living system in which human, natural and economic elements are interdependent and draw strength from each other. Some of our programs include: Adoption and implementation of sustainable forestry, fisheries – (Adding value to fish, soil management practices), how to expand delivery and use of information technology, sustainable tourism activities that are centred around areas of environment, cultural and historic issues, Recycling, manufacturing of solid and hazardous waste into marketable products, agriculture and forest products, develop, manufacture, market products, services, and technologies for sustainability that reduce environmental burdens.
At AGL we Raise awareness, work with and urged the youth to be more involved in educating the public about conserving the environment and adapting to climate change. We encourage the youngsters to learn as much as possible about things like renewable energy, in light of dwindling fossil fuel resources, and increased recycling. It is everyone’s responsibility to conserve the environment, creating tree nurseries, “Planting trees- Cut one-plant Two” initiative. Trees are one of the planet’s natural cleaners and protect watersheds by binding the soil. The more trees we plant, the better our environment will be for a better tomorrow.”
