The Environment will exist without humans but humans will not exist without the Environment. A culture is not beneficial to humankind if it puts its Environmental Awareness second to anything else. Today, cultures that do put the Environment first are more peaceful and respectful to other cultures. They are less wasteful and hold a true definition of being a conservative. If a culture perceives the destruction of natural resource to gain money as a primary goal, we should closely examine that culture for its sustainability. Physical money has no natural value (i.e. it cannot be eaten). The Environment supports elements (i.e. air, water, food) that provide a means for human existence . If you trade the destruction of something that has true worth for something with no worth, you find yourself with nothing. It’s a simple concept but it is not being widely practiced in today’s society.
African culture is rooted in the Environment through ceremonial rituals, social practices, and spiritual beliefs. To be African is to be Environmentally Aware. Protect humankind by respecting the Environment.
Respect our Environment…
