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.
"Describe how we can open our heart and feel grateful for the beauty of this planet and its inhabitants."
(Simple description for very young writers) According to Louie Schwartzberg, we can be grateful by focusing on the positive aspects rather than the negative. By showing who other people are, in all their individual specialness rather than focusing on lecturing and "finger-wagging" to "not judge others" is the way to open people's hearts organically and show our humanity to the people of different beliefs, capabilities, colors, ethnicities, religions that walk on this earth, with us. The more you see the real person, the less likely you will objectify them as a "category," as a "group" to hate. - Let the gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you. Then it will really be a good day.
"He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed." - Albert Einstein
"Fungi generate soil that gives life." - Paul Stamets
Focus on positive things around the globe that are worth emulating.
The future of our planet Earth is not negotiable. How can people in our communities help to take care of it? Let us leave our planet better than we found it.
