Earth Emergency

Earth Emergency

Can we apply our collective knowledge and action to sustain it?

We only have one planet Earth. Many of us are acutely feeling the impact of environmental threats—from climate change to mining; pollution to water scarcity. What environmental challenges do you face most urgently in your part of the world? How does environmental degradation personally affect you and those around you?
