Together with the YOUWEEN project, Sculpt’s team is going to participate in a series of Green Challenges this year! We invite you to explore the first challenge: World Nature Conservation Day.
The 28th of July marks World Nature Conservation Day when the world is encouraged to pay more attention to various ways through which we can protect our planet from many consequences of climate change. The harm caused so far is numerous, and so should be our efforts to overcome it.
Observing this day aims to maximise our actions taken to protect the several natural resources that we have been enjoying and misusing at the same time, such as water, air, soil, energy, vegetation, minerals and animal life. Beside the serious issues of overexploitation of natural resources, there exist different challenges; for example, global warming, environmental pollution and deforestation. However, the focus and the theme of this year is going to be ‘Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet’. Being the dwellers of this planet, we have a moral obligation to act as the perfect guardians of the nature that surrounds us.
To start with, simple things such as using water/electricity rationally and recycling can make a difference in the long term. Thus, we invite you to participate in the Green Challenge created by members of the Young Women Green Entrepreneurs (YOUWEEN) project. This challenge is trying to raise awareness among young people in regards to the importance of nature in human life. You can take part in this Green Challenge and enjoy national prizes!
