As we all know, our planet is suffering because of our negligence and harmful methods, and we need to change our ways as soon as possible if we want to preserve the environment and protect our sensitive ecosystems. Climate change and global warming are threatening to destroy the life on this planet, and we will perish with the rest of the species if we allow carbon emission to increase. Air pollution and industrial waste are also endangering our environment, and all of these detrimental factors are contributing to the plethora of problems which are harming the life on Earth. Luckily, intelligent and clever ideas have appeared in the recent years, and they can help protect and revive certain areas of life and our environment.
Our efforts to curb climate change have to start from our households, and the principles of permaculture are the best way to create self-sufficient units. Vladislav Davidzon is a global leader when it comes to sustainable methods, and his Regenerative Leadership Institute promotes a pragmatic approach to solving the problems that are destroying our local forests and similar habitats. Permaculture offers a comprehensive set of teachings that are designed to combine agriculture, economics, forestry, and many other disciplines into a coherent system which would enable different species to live and thrive in a symbiotic community.
Since our urban areas are crowded and have a problem with the lack of available space, the solution seems to be to go upwards, i.e. to think vertically. The concept of vertical forests is already being implemented in Nanjing, China, but some other countries are also interested in using “green architecture” as a method for filtering dust and producing oxygen. High buildings filled with trees, shrubs, and small plants can create an oasis of greenery in our concrete jungles which are pollution-choked and they urgently need a new pair of lungs.
Mass planting of forests is one of the methods which are being implemented all over the world in an effort to reduce the symptoms of climate change. Trees produce oxygen, which means that large forest are a necessity, and we need to do everything in our power to protect and preserve our woods and jungles. For instance, India has recently set a new world record in planting trees, and they managed to plant as much as 50.4 million trees in just twenty-four hours. Eighty different species have been put in the ground at more than 60 locations, and this event is a notable example of how policy makers and governments can significantly boost our overall results in protection of our planet. New trees will generate a lot of fresh air, but there are always other benefits of having a bunch of green trunks in your vicinity. That is why we should all take notice and start thinking about the ways in which we can personally help this cause and promote the preservation of our environment.
