20. Teach young people the importance of treating our environment with care and that we CAN make a difference. In fact, we HAVE to make a difference and QUICKLY. If we don’t teach our children that what we do DIRECTLY affects the planet, things will never change. Everything we do matters, and if we don’t STOP the practices that past generations have put in place, our planet truly is doomed. Wyoming, where I live, is particularly awful when it comes to educating children about what gas and coal industries are doing and will continue to do to the environment, but we are not powerless. Children learn from those around them. Inspire them to help us and make them part of the rescue efforts. The mind of a child is a beautiful thing, and sometimes they come up with solutions and feel greater conviction to stop injustice than adults.
