We are part of this planet – just like every other living being on Earth. But I see that human development often harms the environment. I believe it is important that everybody understands that we have to think globally, that we are part of nature, and that every step we take – however small – is part of a common chain. For example, we do not yet know how biodiversity loss will affect us in the future. If we don’t take care of our environment, before long we may even lose our livelihoods.
I am very happy to be part of this project and I accept the challenge to decrease my environmental footprint. I already try to improve my habits and lifestyle, but it is always difficult to get outside your comfort zone. My challenge will be go to the supermarket less often (usually, it is easier and cheaper to go there). Also, I will try to set myself one goal every day in order to become more environmentally friendly.
