Greetings! I am here for you.

The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.

My name is Victoria, friends call me Verde - in translation - Green.

It is such a thrill to be here as a Community Champion with the Environmental Group along with Nusrat my dear colleague from the Voices of the Future Competition (2009), organized by Worldpulse.

I am a freelancer, born in the Republic of Moldova (Eastern Europe). I've been doing a variety of jobs - from journalism, blogging, women empowerment, interpreter, consultant, project manager, stage director, fixer, teacher, and so on. To get out of comfort zone in the past 10 years I am exploring the world.

Environment has an impact on our future generations. If we don’t keep an eye on it now, our future is unpredictable. “The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it”.

With the earthquake in Nepal, severe changes in the environment are happening. The suffering is enormous and the consequences are no doubt devastating to the Earth.

This is just one of many environmental issues. There are many more.Stiil, just a small doze of our numerous population are the concerned citizens.

With the connections we will build on Worldpulse platform, regarding our Environment, we can locate the needs of people in the risk areas and raise the awareness through campaigns and joint effort. From your village, city, continent, you can bring unique stories of how the environment impacts the life of your community and we all can share solutions, positive examples and learn from each other. We can advocate for the right of healthy living by bringing our voices together.

I am here for you now to connect and share the experiences, to hear what you have to say. And remember: "We won't have a society if we destroy the environment". So let's preserve it together.

I'm so excited to see what you two will do together, and feel so confident that you'll bring much awareness and attention to issues that reach women across the globe regarding climate change using this platform. I'm cheering you both on and very eager to witness the movement building that will happen in this group!

Hello Victoria,

Please permit me to call you Green, as it is my best colour for so many reasons; one of which is the fact that it iserves as reminder of the urgent need for man to build a harmonious relationship with nature. I found your words truly GREEN and motivating and cannot but highlight this statement- “The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it”. From the inspiring wake up call you shared, I have no doubt that great discussions and solutions centred around the environment and climate change will ensue.

This is one group I have longed to see become a reality; and I am so happy to be a part of the journey.

Hugs,

Olanike

Hello Verde,

I especially appreciate your call to identify the needs of people in risk areas, to bring stories of how the environment impacts the life of our communities and our sharing solutions. Together I imagine we can generate an important list of the most pressing problems, globally. You have inspired me to better document destruction to land, water, air and people here in Canada.

Thank you for teaming up with Nusrat to lead us all in this important group. I look forward to what we come up with.
