I created this piece to spread awareness.
Climate change and deforestation are issues that are faced by all of humanity. Before I went to Africa, and before I jumped into the literature on this topic I had no idea of the severity.
Forty football fields every minute are being cut down due to deforestation. That’s alarming, however, there is a solution:
Number one, we have to change our relationship towards nature, realize that we are not separate from nature, but that we are a part of nature.
Step two, we must also take personal responsibility and therefore active steps to mitigate our own footprint and the destruction of forests. You can do so at standfortrees.org.
