ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS

Environmental Awareness and Education

Environmental education is a process that allows individuals to explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take action to improve the environment. As a result, individuals develop a deeper understanding of environmental issues and have the skills to make informed and responsible decisions.

 Environmental education is powering environmental leadership, and certainly it is not about changing the mindset of the group or individual, but in the cultivation of milieu that brings out the best of an existing situation and inspires just not the individuals in that group, but the entire group itself. It is not the ability to influence in that group or individual, but in the cultivation of a milieu that brings out the best of an existing situation and inspires just not the individuals in that group, but the entire group itself. It is not the ability to influence others to do something they are not committed to, but the entire group itself. It is not the ability to influence others to do something they are not committed to, but rather to nurture a culture that motivates and even excites individuals to do what is required for the benefit of all. It is not carrying others to the end result, but setting the surrounding for development qualities in them to so they may carry each other and also make survival better for the future. If leadership brings development, 'Environmental Leadership', leads to sustainable development.
