Youth were provided sustainable education to protect the Amazon. The education of youth to think sustainably is the development of next generation ecologist, educators, engineers, architects and scientists focused on sustainable solutions within their discipline and industry producing adaptable, efficient and effective innovative solutions for a better today and tomorrow. Youth poised academically in a young age can begin to critically assess and think of their ecosystem as organic structures of choices. Youth concerned on environment can aid in growing social entrepreneurs and citizens.
“Dekila Chungyalpa, director of WWF’s Sacred Earth program, said the creatures, ecosystems and ecological functions of the world’s most biodiverse region are “in peril,” shared among the story in the “WORLD YOUTH DAY IN BRAZIL, A VISION OF SUSTAINABILITY FOR THE AMAZON“.
“WWF is working with faith leaders to try to change that current calamity course. Pope Francis, in Brazil on his first international trip, has made a strong call for sustainable development, providing environmentalists with what Chungyalpa calls a new sense of hope.”
“The Pope’s respect for nature and his strong call for sustainable development paint an optimistic picture for the future,” Chungyalpa said. “I hope he will motivate youth here in Brazil to fight to save the Amazon.”
“WWF is the only major U.S. environmental organization working directly to engage diverse religious leaders in the conservation fight.”
Youth are an ingredient in the evolution of new thinking to produce and prepare sustainable opportunities for advancing society. The nexus of education, energy and innovation is the step to between civilizing society to meet the needs of it people and environment or building upon obsolesce. What we teach our youth today become the policies, legislation and leaders of tomorrow.
