What is Environmentalism?

Environmentalism is a social and political movement that advocates for the protection of the environment and the preservation of natural resources. It encompasses a wide range of philosophies, objectives, and activities aimed at maintaining the health of the Earth's ecosystems, its biodiversity, and the well-being of all living creatures, including humans.

Key Principles of Environmentalism

  2. Sustainability: Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
  3. Ecological Awareness: Understanding the interdependence of all living organisms and the ecosystems they inhabit.
