Today is World Environment Day. It is held in memory of the first UN Conference on the Environment, which was held in Stockholm in 1972. When we look at what is with our earth has happened since then, so it’s memory of 48 wasted years. Drastic and dramatic changes are still spreading on our planet, not only animal or plant species are disappearing, but entire habitats are disappearing. We are still uneducated, we do not take into account the possibilities of natural ecosystems, cope with the influences of our civilization, and our greed is the cause of the dizzying ecological debt that we are ruthlessly leaving on the shoulders of our children.

But it is also a day that provides a good opportunity to think about how we should live our lives so that it is not at the expense of future generations.
