Humanity is part of Nature
"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
- Albert Einstain
We have forgotten we are part of Nature and with this, destroy the very fabric of
As Humans have become more technologically savvy and as our habitats have become more urbanized - our connection with nature has become weaker.
Thus more and more people have forgotten we are part of Nature.
We need a transformation in our way of thinking to remind our connection with and part of Nature.
The Plastic Problem
Our plastic problem has reached such levels that it is now a genuine threat to Humanity's future.
Plastics and their byproducts are littering our cities, oceans, and waterways, and contributing to health problems in humans and animals.
Nearly all plastics leach poisons. Not only do these poisons harm our environment, but when used with food and drink products, cause serious problems especially with children.
Climate Change and The Hot Age
As Earth's climate get's hotter, there is an increase in the number of fire disasters and number or droughts. Worldwide, hotter than normal temperatures and drought across all regions including northern Europe and North America in 2018 resulted in wildfires which in turn contribute to higher levels CO2 and hotter temperatures.
The cycle is inevitable and will continue to result in higher temperatures, dryer lands, increased number of droughts and increased levels of CO2.
Plastic doesn't belong in our environment and certainly not in our oceans which we share with millions of marine life species.
Every year our man-mad ocean plastic pollution kills millions of marine life. For obvious reasons this cannot continue.
Transforming Our Habitat
We don't have to leave cities to experience Nature and remind ourselves we are part of Nature. We can transform our urban habitats to become more natural - and this has already started to happen. Our task is daunting however: In the world today:
1. One in eight people or 1 billion people on earth live in slums.
2. 55% of people in Africa live in slums
3. 28% of people in Asia live in slums.
4. 21% of people in Latin America and the Caribbean live in slums.
5. 20% of slum households are headed by women who are the poorest and most vulnerable.
