If we all just believe and act on the things we know. If we’re honest about how our actions have consequences on people and the planet. Imagine then, the differences we can make together. Today, undoubtedly, climate change is the challenge of our time. We recognize that environmental issues are not just a series of isolated events like deforestation, the landfill crises or air pollution. We are beginning to understand that environmental problems affect our economics, our social structure, and the health and wellbeing of humanity as a whole.
