As climate change intensifies, the critical test of global governance will be how it adapts and responds to increasingly complex risk parameters, such as social, economic, political and environmental. The acceleration of climate change will exacerbate the pressure of poverty on the management of natural resources and trigger a set of complex social, economic and political risks.
To adequately face the type of threats like climate change, we have to think and act as a global humanity, beyond our small national interests. Only a comprehensive vision of a global society, supported by universal values and principles, can inspire governments and individuals to take responsibility for the long-term care and protection of the natural environment.
As a way of life, there should be a new awareness or responsibility every day, paying more attention to our actions, what we eat and consume, how we communicate and move. Choose organic or local products over mass-produced and shipped products. Recycle and reuse things that would otherwise be considered waste. And the most important thing is to save on the use of energy, water and gas, use public transport or share rides and treat other human beings, animals and even insects with respect.
An increasing number of more people want to better help the environment and admire those who live eco-friendly lifestyles, but are not ready to indulge in a complete Green Life. The truth is that some of the most competent environmentalists are those who make small differences every day. We don't need to live in a completely sustainable shack to do our part. In fact, we can start today to make some changes in our daily life that have a big impact on the quality and sustainability of the environment. Just thinking twice about how our actions affect the environment can be enough to help us practice these eco-friendly tips - and, in reality, lead us to a completely green lifestyle.
As sincere and devout human beings, this should be our commitment to continue contributing to building a greener, more equitable and greener world.
