One movement that stands quite prominent in today’s world and that I feel that my group should be concerned with is that of the state of the environment. The environment, clearly, places an immense part in the transgressions of our lives and currently stands as one of greatest problems the world faces. Issues such as global warming and deforestation has had a great impact on the current state of the world, whether it be in terms of weather, resources, etc. This is an issue that affects every single individual in the world, so action taken on the those on the college campus could prove extremely profitable for the world today and in the years to come. Means to avoid further deterioration have been taken all over the world, however, pollution and other harmful acts still exist quite prominently in today’s society. For example, it is predicted that every year about 2.2 billion tons of waste is dumped into our oceans. This is an unacceptably large amount of waste that must be lessened to help save the environment from inevitable destruction.
Issues such as those stated above stand as huge but not untreatable problems today. There are countless ways in which people can help reduce pollution, deforestation, and other environmental issues today. Simple activities, such as carpooling from place to place, recycling, and bringing your own bag to shop rather than using plastic bags, are easy ways to prevent an augmentation of the issue. These tasks at first glance may seem only menial, but they can prove to have an enormous effect on mitigating the problem if enough people follow them, creating a cleaner and healthier planet for the future.
Combatting the issue on the college campus will not only create a more clean and more tolerable place to live, but it will also generate more awareness for the students on an issue that will exist for everyone for the rest of their lives. It is clear for the necessity of a more sustainable environment, however, many people often neglect the true importance it has on their daily lives ,and it is important to educate others on the issue to prevent this oversight from becoming a reoccurring problem. For these reasons, I believe my group should focus on helping sustain the environment as it stands as one of the most important features of our lives.
