“It’s World Environment Day. Take a look around. Do you like what you see? Do you think we care enough for our world, and for the different types of life we share it with? Do we do enough to treasure it? I think we should care more. Why? Because we depend on the environment without even realizing it and because we are destroying it faster than we can protect it. And while the number of people in the world is getting bigger, the planet isn’t.

It’s up to all of us, but especially to you, as young people. YOU are the future and the world depends on you. You can make a change.”
