With 7.6 billions people and almost 1 billion people around the globe without access to safe drinking water
Annually, 1.8 million Children die from diseases related to poor sanitation and contaminated water.
That means that every 20 seconds, a child loses his or her precious life.
Air pollution from coal power plants
For too long the coal industry has used our atmosphere like an open sewer for its airborne pollution.
These emissions fuel climate change, but they also pose a serious threat to our health and environment.
These threats include smog, acid rain, toxic mercury, and fine particles that embed deep in our lungs.
By breaking free from coal, we can fight both air pollution and climate change.
The shift to 100 percent clean, safe renewable energy will be a huge double win for the health of people and our planet.
Saving endangered species
Key to the survival of our endangered species is ensuring that they are reintroduced to protected areas where they can safely roam and strengthen in number.
Hunting big cats is a tradition that goes back many centuries in India from the times of the British Raj back to the Mughal Empire and beyond.
Today leopards and tigers are still poached for their skins, while what few Asiatic lions that remain in the country are located in a centralized protected region.
Knowledge is everything
When people talk about children not succeeding in school, it is not long before they start pointing fingers at one another, saying things like, “If only the school would…..” or “We wouldn’t have this problem if parents…..” Often the answer to why children are not getting a good education depends on who gets asked which questions.
Or who talks the loudest. Families in poverty with few literacy skills are not usually asked these sorts of questions.
And they certainly are not the people writing and asking them.

Rain forests play an invaluable role in sustaining life
The rain forest is nearly self-watering.
Plants release water into the atmosphere through a process called transpiration.
In the tropics, each canopy tree can release about 200 gallons (760 liters) of water each year.
The moisture helps create the thick cloud cover that hangs over most rain forests.
Even when not raining, these clouds keep the rain forest humid and warm.
The Rainforest are Endangered more than we can imagine.
What are human rights?
Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death.
They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe or how you choose to live your life.
They can never be taken away, although they can sometimes be restricted – for example if a person breaks the law, or in the interests of national security.
Understand the value of using clean energy The sun is the star that dominates our solar system.
The amount of energy emitted by the sun as radiation is quite constant. This energy output is generated deep within the sun.
The Wind Powering sustainability
The use of energy is growing rapidly and the resources of our planet are already under great pressure.
We need to change the way we produce our energy. We need to produce more renewable energy, and the most promising source of energy is the power of wind.
Non-renewable fossil fuels (crude oil, natural gas, coal, oil shales and tar sands) currently supply Australia with more than 95 percent of our electrical energy needs.
Non-renewable energy is energy produced by burning fossil fuels such as coal.
Food for Everyone
Eating healthy is an important life lesson.
Kids go to school to learn, and part of what they learn about is healthy food and nutrition.
Even if what they learn about nutrition isn’t ideal due to the food industry’s influence on what is taught, the food served at school should set a healthy example.
Students may like unhealthy foods, but the hypocrisy is not lost on them when schools serve food that is not healthy.
Just like students who go home and tell their parents not to smoke because of what they learned at school, students become advocates for healthy eating at home when they learn about and experience healthy eating at school – we have seen this happen with the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Snack programs and also our Cool School Food program, which provides healthy plant-based entrees at school.
Learning about healthy eating is a life lesson that not only helps each student, but the ripple effect has a positive impact on their families and generations to come.
We produce enough food to feed 10 billion people. So why does hunger still exist?
Something we have to take care of
In our world, one in eight people live in slums. In total, around a billion people live in slum conditions today.
This not only amounts to a rather unacceptable contemporary reality but to one whose numbers are continuously swelling.
In spite of great progress in improving slums and preventing their formation– represented by a decrease from 39 per cent to 30 per cent of urban population living in slums in developing countries between 2000 and 2014 – absolute numbers continue to grow and the slum challenge remains a critical factor for the persistence of poverty in the world, excluding fellow humans and citizens from the benefits of urbanisation and from fair and equal opportunities to attain individual and collective progress
1 in every 4 people will live in a slum by 2030, according to current estimates.
Happiness! take it when you meet it.
Happiness hasn't any form, as far I know, but it just com and go as it Pleased, I think that it is something you have to practice on, to be there at the right moment, and don't hesitate when it arrive.
look after, see after, and feel after, use it when it arrives to you, Just as invisible it comes, it goes again. Grab it and embraces it!
There have always been people calling for us to take responsibility for the world around us.
People today may seem less interested in protecting Nature, but maybe this is because we are all isolated in our social media bubbles and are not hearing what everyone is saying.
Maybe now it is time to look around at the countryside and wilderness we are so lucky to have – often just an hour away –
and start making changes to ensure it will not soon disappear.
