Environmental awareness is to understand the fragility of our environment and the importance of its protection. Promoting environmental awareness is an easy way to become an environmental steward and participate in creating a brighter future for our children.
What is Environmental Awareness?
To define environmental awareness we must first understand the environmentalist movement. Environmentalism is an ideology that evokes the necessity and responsibility of humans to respect, protect, and preserve the natural world from its anthropogenic (caused by humans) afflictions.
Environmental awareness is an integral part of the movement’s success. By teaching our friends and family that the physical environment is fragile and indispensable, we can begin fixing the problems that threaten it.
How to Promote Environmental Awareness
Before you can begin promoting environmental awareness in your community, you must first make sure that you have a thorough understanding of environmental issues. Stay up to date on environmental news, read books and other resources, and learn about the issues affecting your own community. It’s much easier to talk to others about the environment if you’ve already taken the time to educate yourself.
Numerous resources are available to promote environmental awareness and education: group learning (inside or outside of the classroom), informational and inspirational seminars, online courses, books, articles, videos, and brochures are just a few of the tools that can get you involved in promoting the environment.
A good course of action that ensures your continued participation is to pick an environmental issue that strikes you as the most urgent. The amount of environmental issues seems limitless, and while they are all important, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Try choosing one issue to focus on at a time. You will soon see that all environmental issues are intertwined and will find your niche of interest.
Examples of Environmental Issues
Here are several cause-and-effect problems that harm our environment:
- Oil Drilling- This issue is one that causes a great deal of environmental destruction. Our dependence on fossil fuel is a global addiction that affects every aspect of the world. Oil spills and offshore drilling poison marine life, oil drilling (on land) suffocates the earth, and the combustion of fossil fuels add to the increased atmospheric CO₂, which in turns causes the progression of global warming and ocean acidification. This is a multifaceted issue and is a good cause to get involved with because it covers such a broad spectrum of issues.
- Deforestation- Millions of acres of forest are cut down for industrial benefit, such as large scale farming, oil mining, and the production of paper goods. Deforestation causes wildlife and biodiversity extinction because the loss of habitat threatens many species’ existence. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has a Red List of environmentally threatened species with up-to-date information.
- Production of Plastic Goods- Currently our society creates a great deal of waste and much of that waste consists of plastic. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2010 alone 31 million tons of plastic waste was created. This waste ends up all over the globe in both land and water, a good example is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Not only is plastic waste an issue, but the production of plastic is also dependent on fossil fuel combustion. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) in 2010 191 million barrels of liquid petroleum gases(LPG) and natural gas liquids (NGL) were used in the U.S. alone to produce plastic goods.
Share Your Knowledge
After you’ve chosen an issue and educated yourself, engage your community, family, and friends in a conversation about the issue’s urgency and importance.
By engaging your community in the conversation, you are not only promoting environmental awareness, but you may also find opportunities to participate in communal projects or to get involved in other related causes.
Make a Difference
Once you’re well versed in environmental issues, you can use that knowledge to start beneficial projects in your home and/or in your community.
Possible Project Ideas
- Instead of driving to work or school, take the bus, carpool, walk, or ride your bike to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions. According to the EPA transportation adds to 33% of the total atmospheric CO₂.
- Consider investing in appropriate technology like clean power (solar or wind), if not for your home then maybe for a community center. This supports a transition to clean and renewable energy.
- Buy reusable products such as glass bottles, reusable bags and reusable cups. Avoid buying disposable goods such as paper towels, plastic bottles, and plastic bags.
- Start composting and recycling, which will help cut down our waste production.
- Support local businesses and farmers, and buy organic and pesticide-free food when you can. Or, start your own community garden.
Once you have chosen your cause and have started a personal or community project, share it with the world! Get your coworkers, neighbors, friends, family, or even your local government involved. It’s much easier and more effective to spread environmental awareness and start a local project if you collaborate with others in your community.
Promoting environmental awareness is a crucial part of being an environmental steward. Start participating in the change and teach your community what is needed to create a sustainable future.
Manas National Park
On 11 Dec 2020, we left Guwahati at 11:30am in a sturdy Bolero.I was accompanying Madhurima Ma'am, the Secretary of Forests,Govt of Assam who was on an inspection tour of the famous Manas National Park.It was an official duty for Ma'am while it was a dream outing for me that was realized after seven years.
When we reached Sonapur, our driver Kalita da stopped the vehicle to buy some oranges.The sun was directly overhead by that time and in that warmth, the sweet
and tangy oranges tasted heavenly.Kalita da then deftly speeded up the SUV on the smooth highways.
At 2:40pm, we reached Bashbari IB(Inspection Bungalow) of the Manas NP.The director of the Park, Amal Sarma had been waiting for us and we were warmly welcomed.Then,we were ushered inside the dining hall for lunch.As it was
my fasting day, I brought a tiffin of Sagoo Khichhri.After lunch, Ma'am and I set out for a jeep safari.As it was an open vehicle, we put on our woollen caps and sat down comfortably behind the driver's seat.Ma'am was ready with her Nikon DSLR camera to shoot any bird or animal that we would come across.We had to travel for around 3km to reach the Rest House at Mathanguri where we would put up for the night. On the way we saw Fatimabagh tea garden.After five minutes, we reached the gate of Manas NP.Inside the wire fencing of the Park, many colourful peacocks and jungle fowls were roaming around.
The driver, Ajay Ramchiary stopped the vehicle so that Ma'am could click some pictures of the birds.Ajay also acted as our guide who told us that there are 479 species of Bulbul inside the Park.We rode through the kuchha road where there are Simul trees on either side.The cool breeze that blew on our faces was becoming chilly and I put on my thick and long jacket.
At 3:50pm, we reached Buraburijhar camp where we saw hugu(a bird) and some long-tailed bird species.As we rode along, we saw Sorfully camp on the way.It was 4:30pm and after a few minutes,it became dark.We had to depend on the front lights of the vehicle to look around.I could see another light coming from behind ; it was Kalita da who was following us on the SUV. On the right side of the road, we saw a huge,brown-coloured Sambar that was drinking water from a stream.A little ahead,a group of deer were standing near the same stream.Suddenly, an elephant was about to cross the road in front of us.Ajay put on the brake in time and let the animal to pass by.After sometime a deer appeared and ran across the road before it disappeared among the bushes.Ajay was driving at a slow speed so
that we do not miss out on any sightings.His sharp and experienced eyes then sighted two burning eyes in the dark.He pointed out to us and stopped the
vehicle.Lo! a leopard appeared on the right side and it quickly crossed the road.Ajay warned us not to make any sound.In the darkness, we could spot those two burning eyes of the cat.It did not go far away but instead sitting there as if it was posing for a photograph.It was too dark to see its whole body.We knew it was moving around slightly among the bushes but we were unable to capture its pictures in the dark. With sighs of regret we moved along and reached the Upper Bungalow of Mathanguri at 6pm.This is a one-storeyed building painted dominantly with green, symbolising the colour of the forests.We climbed up the wooden stairs to the upper floor where we were accomodated in the room of the Field Director of Manas Tiger Project.The wooden floor made a creaking sound under our feet.From the verandah, we could hear the dashing sound of the Beki river that was flowing just next to the building.Ma'am and I took baths in turn and at 9pm, we went down to the dining room to have dinner.Again, I took out my tiffin to complete my fast for that day.This time I had beet halwa made with the fasting flour while Ma'am had chicken curry, dal,salad etc.I offered a little halwa to Ma'am and she liked the taste.
Tired, I slept early.But Ma'am had to sit up for sometime as she was expecting some of her office colleagues.I covered myself under the quilt and in no time, entered the dreamworld.

COVID-19 Vaccination Has Been Conjuring Up Emotions And Memories - WOSU

After a year of fear, stress and isolation, the COVID-19 vaccine often produces more than a little pinch of sensation in your arm. The experience also stirs strong emotions. Some feel relief. Others gratitude. Many are overcome and start crying. Some people say the freedom squelched by the pandemic is beginning to return. That feeling of liberty is familiar to those who have survived previous epidemics. On a spring afternoon in 1954, 1-year-old Gloria Anderson played with a group of toddlers in Billings, Mont. Two days later her mother learned that one of the other children had contracted polio. Within days Anderson started feeling sick first a bit of nausea, then fever. Her mom gasped when she put Anderson in a high chair and saw that she could only move her right leg. "I was kicking one leg," Anderson says. "And my mom stuck the pin in my left leg, and I didn't move it." They rushed her to the hospital where she quarantined for three weeks. Even her mother couldn't visit. The left side of her body was paralyzed, and the prognosis was tragic she would never walk again. But Anderson was one of the lucky ones. Her immobility was temporary, and six months later she took her first steps. In rare cases, you can contract polio twice. So when the polio vaccine arrived in 1955, Anderson's mother raced her two daughters to the doctor's office. "It was a sugar cube," Anderson says. "And we all took it. And my mom was radiant!" Radiant because her girls were safe. But the disease scarred Anderson both physically and emotionally for life. The left side of her body never fully recovered, and she's had to endure numerous medical procedures over the years. Now in her 60s, Anderson started falling a lot and eventually had to get fitted for a leg brace. It's a daily reminder of her illness as a small child. Because a virus almost killed her and still affects her life today, Anderson took the coronavirus seriously from the start. She and her husband religiously sheltered in place, and if they had to leave their home they wore masks. They desperately missed their grandchildren. "There's heartache," Anderson says. "These are hard times. But we do it for one another." Like her mother six decades ago, Anderson was beaming after recently receiving her second vaccine shot. Viral trauma Leo Herrera also felt a familiar sense of relief when a nurse inserted a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine into his arm. The past 12 months marked the second time the 39-year-old watched a virus rip through his community. COVID-19 has disproportionately hit both Latinos and LGBTQ people. "I'm a gay man," says the San Francisco resident. "I have a lot of viral trauma from the HIV pandemic. I'm also a first-generation Mexican immigrant who grew up undocumented. So there's a lot of overlap between the two pandemics." Back in 2012, Herrera was dating an HIV-positive man. That same year PrEP, a daily pill that prevents the user from contracting the virus, hit the market. But, just like the vaccine rollout today, access tilted toward affluent communities with good insurance. "It took years for PrEP to be distributed widely to folks of color and folks without health care," Herrera says. And just like today, a lot of media focused on unknowns. Would the pill lead to toxicity? Bone density issues? Maybe kidney problems? In the end, Herrera took a leap of faith. The mental health benefits outweighed the potential physical risks. "The first time I had sex without a condom with an HIV-positive person was a freedom and a loss of shame and anxiety that was phenomenal," he says. Jonathan Salinas can relate. Even though the 23-year-old San Francisco resident didn't endure the AIDS crisis, the virus haunts his generation, as well. "When I was growing up as a gay man I was told that HIV should always be in the periphery or around the conversations of sex," he says. So, when he learned about PrEP during a visit to Planned Parenthood he was thrilled to start taking the daily pill. "As soon as I got on PrEP, that anxiety, that weight off of my shoulders, it lifted almost immediately because I felt empowered," he says. Salinas was filled with a similar sense of relief when he received his COVID-19 vaccine. He hasn't visited his relatives for months out of fear he'd bring the virus home. "I just felt so much hope," he says about getting the vaccine. A beat too long While driving to get his second COVID-19 shot, Leo Herrera stopped for gas. When he walked inside the station to pay, he passed a group of people not wearing masks. "And I thought, 'Oh, man. I cannot wait for this to be the last time that I have to focus on what everybody else is doing to take care of me. I can finally take that power back, ' " he says, grinning. He's looking forward to the time when most people are vaccinated. When he finds himself at a wedding reception or a bar, and without thinking he can open his arms to hug a stranger. "And the hug is going to go on for a beat too long," he says. "And you're going to hold on to that stranger, and you're both going to realize what that hug means."
