Essay contest is a fantastic way of expressing the creativity in an individual. The imagination of young minds about the planet Earth is a window into the future. The objective is to educate about the complex, intricate and fragile interdependence of life as revealed by the global ecological problems around the world and to act individually by finding simple solutions inspiring the neighbors and communities we live in.
"How do we ensure a prosperous future for our planet Earth within the safe operating space of its planetary boundaries and ecosystems?"
(Simple description for very young writers) Sustainability for Many Years in the Future: Looking into the far future (over 100 years), scientists have realized that having enough drinkable water will only be possible if wetlands are preserved. Also, having breathable air will only be possible if woodlands of trees and other vegetation are preserved. Can you describe wetlands and woodlands in your own experiences that should be preserved for many years in the future?
"Ecosystems provide many of the basic services that make life possible for people. Plants clean air and filter water, bacteria decompose wastes, bees pollinate flowers and tree roots hold soil in place to prevent erosion. All these processes work together to make ecosystems clean, sustainable, functional and resilient to change." - National Wildlife Federation
What else does the nature do for us, humans? How should an ideal planet Earth be in the immediate future and beyond? Who are the beneficiaries? How do you get there? Who takes the lead? Is it realistic? What are the NEW success stories?
The future of our planet Earth is not negotiable. How can people in our communities help to take care of our Earth? Let us leave our planet better than we found it.
