Our planet is beautiful. Who hasn’t admired nature’s wonders, like the continuing breaking of the waves on the shore, the silence on a high peak of a mountain, the coolness of a thick forest on a hot summer day or the wonder of water transforming a desert? It all affirms the beauty of creation, and most importantly, gives humanity the basis for life. But there is a delicate balance to be maintained between the needed efforts to conserve nature and limiting the negative effects that technological progress can have. What can each one of us do, and, if we don’t act, what consequences will the whole society have to face? There are small steps that can make a difference, if millions of people adhere. And some changes in our lifestyle that we might fear could open up new possibilities. Then also future generations will have the opportunity to experience the awe and wonder of nature.
