Green Humanity Series 1

Humanity : Time to be Green Humane First.

It is of great importance to understand the relationship of environment and human beings in contributing to the heavy onset of climate change. Being an educator of Disaster Readiness and Risk Reduction Core Subject for Grade 12, I made it a point to update myself in new regulations on all aspects of Disaster Management.

Several factors affect any community in times of disaster but the biggest contribution to all the hazards are the human actions. The reality is that it is a cycle of one’s perception towards his responsibility and the community’s response to environmental changes.

 

Attending a seminar about DENR (Department of Environmental and Natural Resurces) regulations and NGO’s role in fighting for the humane treatment of bio-diversity just re-enforced my advocacy to impart and educate my students about the value of respect towards Earth and the resolve to elect people who have the same mind set towards better green governance.

Understanding that no man is an island must be replicated. Even if one person is adept and technically knowledgeable but has no support of the elected officials and the community he is trying to serve there is no way for any green project to prosper.

We have heard issues where people in coastal community will agree for a sand quarrying simply because they do not understand the long term effect of those actions. Or even if they have higher awareness but are lacking the concept of long term effect shall and time again receive a dismal payment for natural resources that their ascendants are entitled for.

It is sad and frightening truth that the current situation of Earth is so tragic that if we do not act now there will be no bluest/greenest planet in our universe.

We are built higher in intelligence than animals, but we lack the common sense of one. We do not recognize the circle of life; instead what we recognize is the monetary ascendancy. We vote for people who are selfish and be governed by irresponsible individuals.

We have to change that mind-set, we have to embrace the fact that each one of us plays a role in fighting to keep Earth as healthy as we would want ourselves to be.

Humanity: Educating the new generation how to plant propagules properly and be pro-active in protecting Mother Earth one plant at a time.
Humanity : Cultivate and we shall reap the benefits of mangrove protection.

Change is constant let us be the constant for Mother Earth. Educate and Replicate.

Humanity :let the future advocates see for themselves and show them what is the importance of ecosystem and they shall be proactive.

HUMANISM in a nutshell

Humanism is quite a new concept in the Philippines. A few atheists have been propagating their ignorance about the meaning of humanism. They think humanism is all about giving, charity or humanitarianism. As atheists, they could have done their own research, but, they’d rather paint HAPI a different color of their ignorance. Don’t we want […]
