Global Conversation Cat

Welcome to this week's cluster conversation! Not sure what cluster your school is in? Check here.

There are different ways to "build back greener". Here's a recap:

  • INVEST IN GREEN ENERGY = Stop using fossil fuels (coal, crude oil and natural gas) and start using environmentally friendly energy sources. For example, renewable energy or nuclear power.
  • SUPPORT GREEN BUSINESSES = Give money to businesses that are environmentally friendly
  • HELP NATURE = For example, by planting trees, reducing pollution or protecting habitats
  • SUPPORT GREEN RESEARCH = Give money to help experts find out how to slow climate change
  • INVEST IN GREEN TRANSPORT = Make transport more environmentally friendly. For example, make more electric cars or a green public-transport system.

Which of these ways to “build back greener” is the most important for your country?

Top tips:

  • We want to hear about your experience where you live. The best comments will answer the question and explain why your experiences have led to your opinion.
  • A cluster conversation is small group of 30 schools that you will get to know really well. Try to reply to other people, ask questions about their answers and learn more about what life is like where they live.
  • A new cluster conversation question will be posted every Monday.
  • You can use this to help start your answer, "I think the most important way to "build back greener" in [your country] is... I think this because where I live..."

    Most of the developed countries of the world today are looking for alternative sources of energy production driven by two main factors: The first is environmental pollution resulting from global warming and the associated climate changes,In Palestine, for example, and specifically in the Gaza Strip, alternative energy represents a solution to the problem of scarcity of electricity generated in the Strip, as it does not meet more than 30% of the demand for it. As a result of the lack of production of electrical energy,And most of the facilities that depend on this type of energy are hospitals that need uninterrupted electricity.Therefore, many Palestinian universities decided to start serious steps to establish projects related to renewable energy in the Gaza StripI think that the benefit is great when using alternative energy, but the problem is the lack of financial support by the government, the high cost and the lack of security instability
    In your opinion, how can poor countries use alternative energy without the support of developed countries?

      A good question, I think poor countries can use alternative energy first by developing themselves by seeking help from governments and religious institutions within them, development, creativity in charitable work and also the World Bank. These are some of the ways that help poor ways to develop themselves and use alternative energy if they want. Unfortunately, most of the poor countries have not yet woken up.

    Hi everybody , I think The best solution to protect the environment in my country is ( support projects that help preserve the environment) , such as recycling of solid waste and sanitation .

    The pollution problem in my country is affecting the environment greatly,
    such as ( burning accumulated waste ,burning trees and discharging waste into the sea ) .

    In my opinion, in order to raise the community's awareness about the environment,
    l suggest ,implementing awareness workshops,
    forming teams that protect the environment,
    encouraging society about recycling.

    Can you, my friends, talk to me about other proposals?
    Is there recycling of things in your country?

      I will tell you about a suggestion that you can do at home, yes at home, use the washing machine only when it is full of clothes only, because of the impact of that is to save 3,785 liters of water per month.
      Regarding my area (Gaza Strip), yes, we recycle very simple things like plastic and glass, But these things are very important and help us improve ourselves and recycle more things.

    I believe that the environment is a trust in everyone’s neck, so we must preserve it and keep it clean and limit environmental pollution in some way, such as rationalizing energy consumption everywhere, whether at work or at home, using public transportation instead of private vehicles, using unleaded petrol, using paints and materials Environmentally friendly cleaning and afforestation of cities, Recycling and it must also use renewable energy sources and use phytotherapy. I feel that If we do not preserve our environment from pollution, we will suffer from many problems in our life, whether they are health and economic problems, and it will work on the decline of the state, pollute the soil and make plants unable to grow, spread Chronic diseases such as heart disease, respiratory diseases, climate instability in all countries of the world, so do you see the previous solutions suitable for your country? And why is air pollution an issue of great priority ?!

      These solutions should be considered by all countries, and they are very appropriate for my country.
      Why is air pollution an issue? Because it is the air that we breathe and it is the source of our survival on life, and plants can live by it (the photosynthesis process), so we must take care of it and reduce air pollution.

    Climate change is a big problem and it results in damages, so the state must solve it before it is too late, like my country Palestine, which must strive to solve this disaster. I think support green businesd is suitable for Gaza strip. Some factories and organizations work to support projects that protect the environment, such as recycling of glass and plastic. It is very easy, in the shortest time, and in the lowest cost, and also these chemicals differ between different types of plastics, and once released, some of them can be toxic and have harmful effects on the environment and human health,
    Such as Palestine Bank support green projects , also Bayader Association implemented a project to enhance adaptation mechanisms, restore agricultural productivity and use environmentally friendly technologies in the Gaza Strip.
    I wonder why a person did not implement this idea before? Shared harm: don't humans care about the environment and climate change? Or did conditions not allow it, or are climate change and the environment unimportant in human eyes?

      The reason why a person or group does not think of this solution is due to the lack of adequate awareness of the community, and direct implementation, at all times the project needs time to implement it either to be implemented or sleep on it and forget it, especially in the Gaza Strip.

    The covid-19 pandemic has ravaged the Earth for nearly a year, that's why we absolutely should stop this crisis to return to a normal life.

    But the world's efforts to fight the pandemic mustn't make us forget the ecological issues. When the crisis is over, we will have to work hand in hand to stop the climate change, which the experts assume to be more dangerous and devastating than the virus.

    "Building back greener" would be our supreme objective, to advance towards a better world, in harmony with our mother nature. But this needs a lot of efforts to be done and strict measures to be taken. We have to get out of our comfort zone to eradicate pollution and stop the emission of harmful gases .

    In my country, Tunisia, we unfortunately don't have large financial means to be able to invest in ecological business and green transport. They require a lot of money, and our country is going through a big economic crisis. But the best initiatives are not necessarily the ones that cost the most. Trees naturally produce oxygen, and absorb carbon dioxide which causes climate change. They also form a habitat for many animal species. So, the best mesure in our country would be to plant a lot, and limit deforestation with the help of legislations and awareness campaigns. Briely, all means are good if they help stop the climate crisis!

    The best solution to face climate change is Help the nature in Gaza strip. I suggest that we reuse our limited resources and recycle them and rethink how we use them Have you learned that plastic pollution has increased tenfold since 1980 and every year we dispose of 400 million tons of metals, plastics and waste Why do we get rid of them and we Need it? Why don't we recycle and use it? Let's reuse and recycle everything we get from our limited resources and also do you know that recycling has a great impact on natural resource management as it helps increase the soil’s ability to retain water and affects the strength of soil properties in its response when flipping or plowing, which reduces Pollution resulting from this water Finally, I want to ask you a question: is recycling waste suitable for use in your country ??

    I believe that green business is one of suitable solution for Gaza to face climate change. Therefore, the utilization of Solar energy has become widespread in different models in various sectors . From agriculture and education to health ,water and industrial sectors
    In the water sector : the khanyunis desalination plant works by making use of the solar energy plant
    In the agricultural secort : separate systems provide a total capacity of 600 kilowatt peak for operating agricultural wells
    As for the education system , each school in Gaza has installed its own solar panels system ...
    I think that the inital cost of using solar energy is relatively expensive !! Becouse it repuires the purchase of solar cells,storage batteries and accessories , but their long _ term use allows recovering this cost in afew years ?? After that , the citizen gets free electricity for a nother additional years ..
    Dr. Iman Ashour , an expert in the Gaza strip ,is the First woman to work in clean energy in the Gaza strip ...
    Think with meHow can we help women to be agents of change to contribute to spreading clean energy?? 💬

      As for women and how they can contribute to cleaning the environment. Women have a thinking and creative mind. If they open the way for them, they will create and amaze people. I hope to see people like the doctor that I am proud of: Iman Ashour.

    The Gaza Strip, in which more than two million people live, suffers from an acute electricity crisis, with hours of power cuts reaching about 20 hours a day

    The growing shortage of electricity has exacerbated women's suffering on a daily basis, resulting in harsh living conditions

    The network of environmental organizations was established as a solid base to raise the voice of women in the places most suffering from lack of energy, which transforms their lives, by providing a clean energy source, by creating a dialogue between the community level and decision-makers for change.

    I think that every person has an important role in facing climate change, which is why I suggest not marginalizing the role of women and empowering women through the use of alternative energy.

    I feel that climate change has bad psychological effects on society, so where is the role of international institutions in launching initiatives to confront this disaster?

    The phenomenon of climate change in Palestine is alarming to some extent, as it threatens the environment, and affects all aspects of life and development plans.The Palestinians realize that they cannot face this problem, whose manifestations are growing in them, on their own, given their urgent need to develop their tools to confront and adapt to it, and the great financial capabilities that this requires that they do not have, Therefore , I think green energy is a good idea of greening is inspiring and possible to face climate change as by its action cities turn from gray to green, so the infrastructure in it is environmentally friendly, and green spaces are spread in it, and all its buildings and streets depend on alternative energy sources, such as solar energy, and green society achieves a way of life in which everyone lives With minimal and rare levels of pollution and chaos.But I am wondering whether the increase in population in the Gaza Strip and urban expansion will affect the idea of afforestation ??

      Of course, the increase in population and urban expansion will affect afforestation because it needs large areas, and the Gaza Strip is very small. I hope that we will get rid of the siege crisis and return our lands to us and use them for agriculture and improving the environment.

    In my opinion , help nature is the suitable solution for climate change by Supporting the environment, such as reducing pollution, planting trees, and prevention habits, because Palestine is considered to have a beautiful, moderate and varied environmental climate, but as a result of the challenges of lack of water sources, pollution and salinity, it stands in the way of the success of many crops in order to maintain a safe and green environment. You can find an environmental balance in the summer and winter. Afforestation of public and secondary streets inside Gaza City, and I am talking specifically about Gaza because I am a resident of the Gaza Strip (Rafah city). Therefore, I ask the civil society, in cooperation with schools, municipalities, and the Ministry of Agriculture to provide shade and ornamental trees such as cypress and Kenya to be planted in the streets and in front of homes, and each tree is given in the name of a martyr Or the country of origin, keeping this card with the owner of the house and encouraging him to take care of it and follow up with him. I suggest that both municipalities and environmentally friendly associations must descend on neighborhoods, schools and camps to spread the culture of waste classification, limit the throwing of harmful and dangerous waste on the roads, and define a special container. With the hazardous waste of hospitals and clinics, and they bear the legal societal environmental responsibility. Do you think we will touch these recommendations on the ground and find someone who applies them and helps to implement them, and there is legal protection to pursue social responsibility in order to maintain a safe green environment?

    INVEST IN GREEN ENERGY
    In my country which is England me and my dad think that investing in green energy is more suitable for our lives in our country we think that the reason why investing in green energy is best for a country is because where we live there is a lot of pollution going on especially with transport and transport is powered by gas and petrol and a lot more gasses we think that in order for our country to help the climate changes that we as a country should invest in electric Power instead of using things such as petrol and diesels this has been a huge problem in our country because people because of the virus have tend to go out to buy food for example and they’re probably using their cars to drive to food market which is affecting our planet because it is causing pollution.
    Also coronavirus has had a little impact on climate change in the rise of the carbon dioxide. according to bbc news Human activity is the main cause of climate change. People burn fossil fuels and convert land from forests to agriculture. ... Burning fossil fuels produces carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas. It is called a greenhouse gas because it produces a “greenhouse effect”.
    You might be thinking what is greenhouse effect this is what it is!
    The greenhouse effect is a process that occurs when gases in Earth's atmosphere trap the Sun's heat. This process makes Earth much warmer than it would be without an atmosphere. The greenhouse effect is one of the things that makes Earth a comfortable place to live.
    A really nice statement I would love to say is that in October here in the UK we will not be able to use old automatic and diesel cars we will have to switch to electric cars if not we would have to get a new are version of that particular car and if you cross that role then you’ll be fine £16
    My question is with all of the automatic and diesels what do you think they will do with it?

    Climate change has remained one of the most critical challenges that nations have been facing for years. It's been a serious issue that threatens the existence of the upcoming generations, and even ours.
    We truly believe that investing in green energy in Tunisia is the most efficient way to restore our environmental balance because it's an affordable alternative. Moreover, using friendly energy resources like solar energy or even wind power would be a huge game-changer.

    The environment in the Gaza Strip faces enormous challenges due to the depletion of limited resources and severe pollution in its components, and this affects climate change and from my the point of view, help the nature is one of the best solutions to confront the threat of climate change. That is why I believe that one of the most important measures to support the following environment (according to the Palestinian strategic plan )

    • Water Resources Management.
    • Land use planning.
    • Increase public awareness of the importance of the environment.
    • Developing appropriate environmental standards.
    • Presenting alternatives to reduce overgrazing by finding alternative pastures. Protecting landscapes, heritage and cultural heritage.
    • Preventing open burning of garbage.
    I feel that these measures are logical, but I wonder if the problem is in planning, implementation, or realistic proposals?

    I live in Ghana. The best way to build back greener in my country is to help nature for example by planting trees reducing pollution and protecting habitat.Trees must be planted to protect the waterbodies from excessive evaporation.When trees are cut down for timber and firewood without been replaced it exposes the soil surface to severe wind and water erosion.
    Also nature has to be helped by protecting our habitats. A habitat is therefore particular place where an organism can live and breed successfully.Poisonous chemicals must not be used for fishing, this pollutes and destroy the aquatic habitat

















    nt way to build back greener is to help nature

    I think that the best solution for Gaza Strip is Help the Nature ( That's my point of view ) .
    Agriculture has tangible impacts on climate change mainly through the production and emission of gases. Agriculture also changes the land cover which can change it's ability to absorb or reflect heat and light.
    In my country Palestine and specifically the Gaza Strip , planting trees is considered one of the most important means of fighting pollution and climate change . Therefore, we find the government is intrested in planting large areas with trees and green plants .ln my opinion, this way is the most suitable for my country because it doesn't cost a lot of money as Gaza Strip is considered poor 😞 . In my city " Rafah " there is a project to plant a lot of olive and citrus trees in land spaces near the sea. But I am wondering : Is it enough to help our nature by planting trees only ??What can poor countries like Palestine do to save their environment ???

    BUILDING BACK GREENER

    Governments at all levels are focused on responding to the impacts of the covid-19 pandemic. People are focusing on this virus , but at the same time the climate crisis continues to pose a significant challenge.

    Climate change is a serious problem and it will affect more people than the pandemic has. If we don't make big improvements by 2030 we will cause a climate catastrophe.

    There are lots of ways to build back greener.
    In my country Tunisia we unfortunately don't know a lot about climate change, its reasons and its effects. I think that's why we should support green research and help experts find out how to slow climate change.
    We should also give money to businesses that are environmentally friendly. Because my country is facing economic crisis.

    The conclusion is that we should do our best to stop climate change and save our planet.

    a spotlight on the trailblazers that are revamping their transportation systems, streamlining renewable energy projects and designing new finance mechanisms to ensure a just transition from COVID-19.

    The report takes examples from eleven governments across Asia, Europe and North America:

    California, U.S. – raising ambition on zero emission vehicle roll-out

    Palestinian schools celebrate the World Environment Day, which the world celebrates on June 5 every year, through official and popular events, to clarify the dangers surrounding the environment and take measures to preserve it.
    Environmental awareness among female students

    I think that help green nature is appropriate for the Gaza Strip, as Palestinian schools seek to enhance environmental awareness through several activities, and although they are shy beginnings that find a space for them between the momentum of the strict curriculum, they are promising for their contribution to deepening the concepts of the environment among students, as they start from continuing to deepen ties Patriotism in historical Palestine through scientific and recreational trips to nature, and inside the school it varies between planting leaf plants and vegetables, teaching students how to make organic fertilizers, recycling wax, paper, making soapAnd the establishment of clean energy through solar energy units
    From this standpoint, I suggest that the global conversation platform be open all year round to all students and not restrictive and support practical initiatives by filming videos on how to confront climate change
    This is why your question, dear students, what do you think that we have an environmental student parliament that supports student activities around the world?

        Whereas when students learn about the reason for this occasion and learn in this celebration about the importance of the environment and what our role is a trend, it is possible that some students think and strive to develop the extent of their understanding to solve this problem and it is possible that when they grow up they become scientists and solve this problem and work to preserve and protect the environment from pollution From the smoke of factories, schools and places of daily gatherings have an important role in working to educate people about the environment

    The Covid-19 pandemic appeared a year ago and ravaged the Earth. But this pandemic shouldn't make us forget that climate change threats and dangers are more devastating than Covid-19. For that, as the world is recovering from the pandemic, we have to seize this opportunity not only to "build back" but also to "build back greener".

    In my opinion, the best solution to "Build Back Greener" in my country, Tunisia , is investing in green energy, because using environmentally friendly energy sources is:

    1/Better for the environment:
    Since fossil fuels are overloading the air with greenhouse gases, which are having an alarmingly damaging effect on our planet. Also, the sea levels are rising as the ice caps are melting and the temperatures are soaring. The climate crisis is really serious, and we need to do all we can to reduce the effects of climate change.

    2/Better for our health:
    Because the fossil fuels and climate change are not only damaging our environment,
    but they are also having a seriously detrimental effect on our health. However, the renewable energy sources ,such as wind power, solar panels and nuclear energy, are much more natural, and therefore ensure a cleaner air.
    I wonder why certain countries haven't already started producing friendly energy sources ? and why people did not apply this idea before ?

    I chose green energy investment as a solution to climate change.
    Whereas in Palestine, the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Law was approved and entered into force in 2015 to encourage the exploitation and development of renewable energy sources. It provided facilities for projects such as electric power plants from renewable energy sources.
    There is also a solar energy program for school rooftops (Noor) to provide renewable energy for residential, commercial and government buildings.
    The SUNREF Palestine project assisted companies providing goods and services related to energy and environmental management (including waste and water management, and pollution reduction).
    That is why I wonder, where is the World Bank’s role in supporting small enterprises to adopt green energy technology?

    Why do people not react to climate change with the same urgency as Covid-19?
    Why do people not react to climate change with the same urgency as Covid-19? When the Corona virus appeared in late 2019, people were preparing for the New Year's celebration, they celebrated but woke up to the new bad news, which is the spread of a deadly virus. Corona virus is a virus with "ribonucleic acid". This formation allows it to spread rapidly within cells, but its ability to spread more due to the long incubation before any symptoms appear (the person says I am not infected and mixes with people). That is why they were afraid of the Corona virus. As for their lack of fear of climate change because they did not see its bad results But it will appear in the long run. Among the causes of climate change is * urban expansion, global warming and global warming (melting of polar ice in the future, as well as, as it is known as permfrost. One of the possible solutions to limit the spread of climate change is * Reducing heat emissions, setting an upper limit. Due to the increase in temperature as an amount of 1 and half a degree Celsius and the reduction of global emissions by more than 7% Do you think that governments, institutions and experts are working to implement these solutions in real life?

    Hi everyone 🌹
    In the first picture
    In my opinion, I see that the earth is struggling ... the earth is sad ..... the earth resists ..... the earth is alone ... but the earth is victorious
    But in the second picture
    While fighting the Earth with the Corona virus, and with the huge climate change, it appears to join the fight against the Earth, so will the Earth be victorious under the alliance of enemies against it?
    And now the intention is that many see the effects of the Corona pandemic, but they have not yet understood the risks of climate change that may exceed "Covid-19" by stages.
    I wonder What is the role of UN organization to support rebuild green nature ????

    I think the most important way to "build back greener" in my country is for Government to subsidize green energy sources for the masses. I think this because where I live most people use fossil fuels like coal, and firewood, this is largely due to high rate of poverty which make them unable to invest in green energy sources.

        The government can overcome this by energy transition: unlike fossil fuels , some energy sources are totally renewable and do not emit greenhouse gases. These clean and sustainable alternative energy solutions include solar energy, hydro power , wind energy, geothermal energy and biomass energy

    I think the way to build back greener to Nigeria is to invest in green transport. Green transportation is using electric vehicles, we need to reduce individual transport because these cars, bikes and trucks produce lots of smoke which is not good for our environment and for us. The smoke can also make holes in the ozone layer that protects us from the sun. If this happens the heat from the sun will increase which which cause skin cancer, water levels decrease and desertification in Nigeria. The way to stop the holes in the ozone layer and other diseases is to reduce the use of cars and the way to do that is to use buses and trains. If each person in the bus uses cars, the smoke will be too much and they will be air pollution but if we use buses and trains it will reduce the air pollution and climate change so that's why I think investing in green transport is good.

    I think that the way to reduce this climate change is to invest in green transport . Because invest in green transport causes more pollution than any other air pollution. Transports are used every day so those transports causes air pollution which also goes up to the ozone layer and causes ozone holes.It also reduces the strength of the ozone layer making it weak and unable to do its job.

    Well I think in Nigeria where I live, the easiest and suitable way to build back greener is by Helping Nature
    By growing plants and trees. Stoping deforestation and bush burning. Why I think this is important is because this can be done by an individual or a group of people and it also suitable for people that are poor. Also it doesn't matter whether the government finances it and also wouldn't cost alot of money. Secondly why I think it's important is because when the trees are being cut down and the carbon dioxide they absorb will remain in the air which will make it harmful for both humans and animals. So if we stick to the aim of supporting afforestation, we are sure to build back greener and the amount of air pollution will reduce.

    It is actively supporting young men and women, and there are many who have creative ideas but are unable to implement them, but we as students, what can we do? There is a day called World Environment Day which falls on the fifth of June of each year where students participate in activities such as planting trees, recycling Things such as plastic and waste, and announcements and leaflets, and I participated in these activities. It was a wonderful day. I came to an idea about waste. In Palestine, waste is burned or dumped in remote places, which leads to air pollution, so why not use air pressure to make solid waste?

    As a Palestinian I think support green business is good solution help nature , I'm very proud that my simple and poor country has many tendencies to preserve the environment and fight the climate change . One of these is investing in Green Energy. We can see the Palestinian government has planted a lot of solar - powered lightening poles that can store energy for 5 days in the absence of the sun . Another successful project is installing electric power generating units in " Ramallah Cultural Palace " . Also there are some special fans that generate electricity from the wind energy. I heard also that there are some projects to design houses that use the solar energy in Gaza Strip. We can find also similar projects in the medical domain . There is a solar sterilizer for medical instruments called "Biomedical Solar Autoclave system". Really I wish to see more and more trends towards increasing dependence on renewable energy and increasing institutional support for energy efficiency and renewable energy development. This is at the level of a poor country , I wonder what if it is a developed country ? What would the level of green implemented projects be like ?

    I think we should invest in green transport.
    The reason why I think Nigeria should invest in green transport is because,the most common air pollution in Nigeria
    is caused by road transport. Nigeria is a very busy country it has many vehicles travelling and releasing harmful pollutants into the atmosphere.
    If we use electric vehicles, there will be less air pollution and we will get an opportunity to "Build back greener"and diseases caused by air pollution will reduce. Electric vehicles are "environmentally friendly" they won't cause ozone holes.Then the climate change issues will decrease.

    I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is invest in green energy,i think this because where I live we use energy sources like fossil fuels , especially gas thermal and hydro power sources , if we use renewable energy like solar panels, inverters, batteries the pollution will dicrease, do you know that over 150000 deaths occured because of pollution associated with energy ? If we use clean energies all over the world we will see the advantages and the large impact that will occur on hand and plants, if we us energies like solar panels, and batteries the price will drop because of their supply will increase to a large amount.
    And an increase reliance on renewable energy can help protect consumers when fossil fuel prices spike .

    They could put in place strict laws criminalizing any of the following situations:
    • Violating the environment, such as: leveling agricultural lands, building houses, polluting water, or disposing of nuclear waste illegally.
    • Everyone's concern for environmental cleanliness and not throwing garbage in places not designated for that.
    • Take care to cultivate the largest possible green spaces.
    • Spreading environmental awareness in the community.
    • Preserving all the natural resources around us and not overusing them.

    I think the most important way to build back greener in my country, Tunisia, is by helping nature because planting trees is very affordable and cheap and I think if every citizen plants a tree in his garden, this will have a huge impact on the world, building back greener.
    Also reducing pollution and protecting habitats will help us get closer to our goal .
    I also think that supporting green businesses and green research is so important because they are trying to save our environment though they require a huge amount of money to carry their projects . So helping them is definitely helpful for the earth .
    For the investment in green transport and green energy, this is not actually possible in my country because of the financial difficulties and since they are new to the community.
    Finally, I think if we really work hard and put hands in hands for a period of time ,that is between 5-10 years, and execute the ways quoted in the beginning we will really see a huge change .

    The problem of climate change must be solved from several aspects. Each country can choose the solution that suits its nature. Is it among the countries that help exacerbate the problem or not? If it is, then the governments in it must move quickly and the whole world must oblige them to do so, but since there is no global movement, let everyone who has it strive, for example in my country Palestine can benefit from solar energy because my country is sunny. Indeed, many residents have dispensed with fuel-powered motors and used solar cells and storage batteries energy .
    There is a general trend that I notice, even in the Gaza Strip, that work is being done by the municipalities to afforest streets, increase green areas, make parks, and recycle our solid waste.
    The question now remains: Are what we produce from pollution that affects the climate is balanced by what we are doing to reduce the impact of this pollution?

    First:
    In order to live in a healthy environment free from pollution, we must use natural materials in fertilizing the land to grow plants and not use agricultural pesticides because God created harmful and beneficial insects to balance the earth and secure a decent life for people. This is why we take natural materials from the earth, such as vegetables and fruits, free from all diseases, and this builds the human body. Proper
    Second:
    The process of purifying polluted water and human use, whether in factories or elsewhere, and using this water after repairing it to irrigate fruitless trees in order to provide us with the necessary needs, natural air and what plants extract and harmful air in the water.
    Third:
    Maintaining the ground from water and keeping pollutant materials away from it, the absence of factories and cars that cause chaos and smoke, and placing them in specific places, and reducing the use of the generator that causes air pollution.
    As for what the world is exposed to in terms of an epidemic during the two years of this century, the responsibility is international to preserve our people from the spread of this disease.
    As for we were exposed to this pandemic and transferred to us through the crossings through which our children pass under the control of the occupation, and we have no ability but to try to quarantine and use simple means such as wild herbs that God created in our homeland from thyme, mint, guava leaves and other antibiotics to combat this disease. And we sit in the sky of this nation, drawing energy from its sun and the air of our land to relieve our pain, and some countries have passed on by providing vaccines, but these do not enjoy the arrival of the disease, it does not protect those who contract this disease and do not fulfill our people's need for health care.
    This is our homeland, this is our patience, and this is God's plight for patience, and God is helper

    I think the most important way to build back greener in England (London) is to invest in green transport, because in London there are lots of people that either drive a car, ride on a train, travel on a bus or drive a motor bike which creates lots of air pollution that poisons our climate. So if every one in London invested on green transport then there would be a lot less pollution, which i think will help the climate the most in a busy city, since there is not much sun in England so solar panels wouldn't be the most efficient way of helping the planet on its way to defeat climate change. England is not only made up of busy city's so that since England is also quite windy i would also consider using wind turbines to fight climate change.

    Invest in green Transport

    I think the best way to build back greener in Nigeria ( kaduna) is to invest in green transport by using electric vehicles, we need to reduce individual transport because these cars, trucks and fridges bring out smoke which affect the environment and make hole in the ozone layer which protect us from the sun. If it continues the heat from the sun will affect us and make some diseases like blood cancer and skin cancer e.t.c. Which might seriously affect the people.
    How to stop hole in the ozone layer and the diseases: Is to reduce the usage of cars, truck and fridges.
    How to reduce the usage of cars and truck: is by transportation of buses and taxis instead of individuals car which brings out gas, and if going to nearby trek or ride a bike. This will reduce the quantity of gas affecting the ozone layer.
    And if your fridges is upto 15-20 years dispose it properly and buy another one.
    And I think here where I live in Nigeria this will really help us because more than 1 billion of people travel with cars and truck and they use fridges more than 20 years.

    The world may face a great danger in 2030 if we do not take great steps to prevent environmental pollution that causes a hole in the ozone layer that leads to global warming.
    Therefore we must stop the use of fuels such as(coal,oil and natural gas) and start using renewable energy sources such as solar energy,wind energy and cultivate a lot of trees to purify air,for example in Gaza city we can use solar energy because the sun always present in the day .

    I think the most important way to "build back greener" in the UK is by investing into electric transport. I think this because in my country, the main source of air pollution is from diesel and petrol vehicles. Specifically in my area, there are higher levels of air pollution as I live close to the busy city. The UK is even planning to ban the sale of diesel and petrol cars by 2030. By using electric cars and transport it will help decrease air pollution, which will be better for the environment as well as keeping humans safe.

    Recycling paper, cardboard, plastic and planting trees to purify the air and not to throw waste in the sea and in the streets

    I will tell you that burning plastic and planting it in the ground leads to the production of toxic gases that negatively affect human health and the atmosphere.
    I will tell you now not to bury plastic in the soil because it is difficult to decompose the plastic stick, and it takes 450 years to decompose, and its presence in the soil leads to its arrival in the groundwater, which leads to the production of methane gas, which is the most important gas that contributes to increasing the impact of global warming, and this all harms the health and safety
    All of this affects our health, we humans, and what is right is that instead of throwing plastic into the soil or oceans, it is better to recycle plastic into something that we can benefit from.
    Thanks for your reading 😊😊😊😊
    I hope that you benefit and that you like this

    In my country, Gaza, we cannot give money to experts to help them discover how to reduce climate change because we suffer from economic difficulties. In my opinion, if we plant trees, this is good, and an individual may do it without government support, but this is not enough so we started using solar energy because the sun is It is strong and a phenomenon most of the time, so we can use it well as we suffer from a shortage of energy sources and because it increases production for its manufacturers and increases job opportunities and because it is clean and pure energy, and it is possible to use wind energy and nuclear energy.

    I have a new invention to protect our environment.
    And it is that we can make a large satellite in space that has sensors that can absorb harmful gases from car exhaust and factory fumes and convert them into water by means of chemical reactions, and we can treat this water and reuse it.

    I'm from Nigeria, our major source of income is crude oil; from which we use to power our machines.However, this can be substituted by the use of biofuels, due to the fact that crude oil is exustible and this can be achieved by Building back greener through helping nature.This is a good method of controlling climate change and and a source of raw materials for biofuels eg Mass production of biodiesel using sugar cane plant. Bioremediation can also be another option thereby using industrial or domestic organic waste obtained from plants to create wealth like biofuels, hence, controlling climate change through mass plant production, reduction of organic waste that pollutes the environment and atmosphere and also a source of income to my country.

    I think support in green reseach
    I think this because because the UK has had one of the ten most warmest years since 2002, also I would like to include that Climate change has made it 30 times more likely that heat waves will be in the Uk and 3,400 people have died from them in the years from 2016 to 2019. The sea levels have rised because of climate change which makes it harder for people live especially people who live beside the sea. The level of storms has rised to which makes it hard for us to live because storms can destroy your homes ect.
    So we need to give money to experts so they can work out the process to make climate change slow down.

    As much as 80% of the things we throw away could be recycled. Even cars can be recycled, with up to 80% of the vehicle being reused. More than 15% of the money we spend on products pays for packaging – most of which ends up in the dustbin. It is estimated that we throw away over 600m batteries in the UK each year.

    Be physically active every day. Eat a healthy diet rich in whole grains, lean protein, vegetables, and fruits. Reduce or avoid unhealthy saturated fats and trans fats. Instead, use healthier monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

    I currently live in China, and I believe that the most important "build back greener" way for China would be to invest in green energy. China is currently the country with the most factories, and due to its large population, it has the highest rate of carbon emission. According to the research carried out by the International Energy Agency, China emitted the highest amount of carbon, giving out approximately 28% of the total carbon emissions in the world. This is mostly due to the mass amount of fossil fuels burnt up in factories. In 2018, they emitted a total of about 10.06 gigatonnes of CO2. Therefore, China must invest more in green energy to reduce the amount of carbon emission, as this will greatly contribute to climate change resolution. Furthermore, China should also focus on investing in green transport.

    In my point of view, I believe in saving money and 'essentials', such as insulation. What I mean by 'saving money', is that some common ways to 'build back greener' in the UK is to do charities for saving the environment by spending money, and lots of other ways to help the environment is to spend money as well, for example, solar roof panels, or insulation (heating) which is basically when you put a blanket over your house to save energy to stop the heat from escaping, so it's very expensive. Some people are buying these items to save energy, so it's increasing in being insulated, and soon more people might do it as well. What I mean by essentials, is that, we're not just wasting money (even if it is to help the environment), we're wasting water, food, paper - trees, plastic, materials - clothes, fossil fuels, such as oil. Even though all of these causes individually seem little, this is what really adds up to make climate change become more dangerous. By saving water, food, paper - trees, plastic, materials - clothes, …. and money, we are saving the environment, by protecting our planet and not wasting essentials, or money. This way, it's a WIN-WIN because we're helping the environment, helping slow down climate change and we're saving our money.
