SDG 15 Life on Land

Protecting the Environment Means Protecting Our Source of Dood and Drinking Water

Everything we eat and drink comes from nature. Yet all pollution ends up one day in our food: in the water we drink or in what we eat. And these pollutants can cause us to develop diseases or malformations.

We must therefore ensure that nature produces sufficient and healthy water and food. For this, we must avoid polluting the soil and the seas. We must avoid carelessly rejecting or spreading excess chemicals. Protecting our food source means preserving the survival and therefore the future of humanity.

Protecting the Environment Means Preserving the Quality of the Air we Breathe

Air is absolutely essential for our survival. We cannot survive for more than a few minutes without breathing. Air provides us with oxygen, the fuel for our cells.

But when we breathe, we don't just breathe oxygen. We also absorb many other things. With each breath, we inhale the gases and particles that are in the atmosphere. Some of these gases and particles are harmful to our body. With each inspiration, we therefore absorb a little poison. Breathing then puts our health at risk and makes us sick. While breathing should only keep us alive.

So, we have to be careful not to pollute our atmosphere. We must not discharge harmful gases or particles dangerous to life into it. Protecting air quality means preserving health and therefore the future of humanity.

Protecting the Environment Means Preserving the Climate we Know

Our societies have lifestyles adapted to the current climate. If the climate changes, our societies will not adapt to it. Certain regions will suffer serious disorders. Depending on the location of the world, there will be rising sea levels, droughts, repeated floods, severe storms, etc. These cataclysms will make people flee or decimate them. People will have to move or change their way of life. Conflicts will arise to be able to live in the spared regions.

The flora and fauna will evolve with the modification of the climate. Some plants will no longer be suitable. Local agriculture will be affected. Parasites will spread to new regions, spreading diseases to humans, plants and animals.

We are already beginning to see that the global temperature of the Earth is increasing. And this change is extremely fast. Nature will not have time to adapt. The current balance will be upset.

We must therefore limit our impact on the climate by reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. Because our atmospheric emissions accentuate the natural greenhouse effect, which contributes to heating our planet. For this, we must in particular be careful to limit our energy consumption.

Taking care not to deteriorate the climate is to preserve the fragile balance of the Earth and therefore the future of humanity.

Protecting the Environment Means Preserving the Biodiversity we Need

Biodiversity is the variety of animal and plant species in nature. All these species must be respected and preserved, for the sole reason that they are the creation of GOD, like man.

But all these species are also necessary for the survival and the future of man.

Plants and animals can contribute to our health. Because it is among wild species, sometimes still unknown, that man has discovered or will discover drugs.

It is also these wild species that can help our agriculture. They can help improve the yield or the resistance to diseases of our plantations or our livestock.

Nature is a source of future discoveries and solutions to our problems. It would be suicidal to destroy all of this before you could benefit from it.

We must prevent the destruction of natural spaces. We must protect endangered species.

Preserving biodiversity means saving a reservoir of future solutions to our problems. It is to preserve the future of humanity.

Protecting the Environment Concerns All of Us

You must be aware and make everyone aware of the importance of protecting the environment. Because protecting the environment means protecting humanity and allowing it to survive. Man does not live alone and isolated. He lives in an environment on which he is totally dependent.

Living in cities, surrounded by technology, often makes us forget it. But if we deteriorate our environment, it will quickly remind us of our dependence on it.

To ensure the survival and therefore the future of humanity, it is essential to protect the environment today. Developing Our World contributes towards sustainable conservation of all forms of life on land. Join hands with us and support us in the cause.
