Global Conversation Duck

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..."

    I think, personally, the most important way to "build back greener" in my country, Hong Kong, is "invest in green energy".
    For "invest in green energy", I think this is one of the most important ways. In Hong Kong, we don't usually use coal, but we use a LOT of oil, using it for transportation fuels, essential to the mobility of people, goods, and services. When you cook or heat something, natural gas comes out.
    How about you and your country?

    In my country Uganda, the best way to build back greener is as follow. Recycling should be done mostly in urban areas of kampala, masaka city, jinja city where dusts, plastics, are dumped everywhere on land hence causing soil infertility disabling proper growth rate of green environment. In addition, afforestation and re-afforestation should be put in action by planting more trees in order to ensure green environment as well as building back greener. In nutshell, strict laws should be put across towards destructors of the green environment like imprisonment of 5years, if one is caught cutting one tree 🌴, should replace it with ten trees hence ensuring green environment .

    People in my country Uganda have the problem of over grazing whereby the government have to teach people the better methods of grazing for example we have the paddock method whereby you graze in shifts so that to keep our country green which is better the farmers and I think it will help us in building back greener

    I think the things are afforestation and re-afforestation because when we practice afforestation and re-afforestation that controls soil erosion in addition, planting trees helps to prevent strong winds from reaching us directly and when occurs it may lead to destruction of people's property and important buildings in the city which is on a high risk. And make my point clear , in Uganda we have the savannah grass lands which attract people and may be foreigners where by is a source of income and government revenue through collecting taxes which have lead to the development of important infrastructures like roads for easy transport. What is your opinion?

    As we can see in the picture, the planet Earth is struggling with Covid-19, and the sun wants the planet to win
    - The painting expresses that the topic of Covid-19 is not easy and how the planet, climate and nature are affected by these things, so how can we limit these things ?? ..... Follow me to find out how

    1.To reduce air pollution, we can build factories in a specific location far from urban and rural residents.
    The use of buses as means of transportation because they can accommodate more people and thus less smoke from cars
    2.We can organize charitable work to plant trees and plants, with safety and security standards
    We can support charitable work by donating small amounts of money to workers who specialize in these businesses via the Internet
    3.We can help nature by stopping littering on the ground, and as we mentioned previously using buses as means of transportation.
    Building factories far from cities, caring for plants well and cultivating them abun

    Thank you very much B.N.C(Burnet News Club)for that big question , I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is to invest in green transport, I think this because in my country Nigeria especially in Lagos which is said to be the most populated city In Nigeria is full of cars, houses and a lot of generators but very little trees,wich is not that good and that causes a lot of pollution which is very dangerous for our health. In Lagos, almost every household owns a generator. Most nights when there is a power outage most of these homes turn on their generators and it makes a lot of noise and produces a lot of smoke which is bad for our health. Generators ruin our trees who purify the air we breathe. The exhaust fumes from cars do not only affect our health they also affect animals who live in the world. Again, every single day on my way back from school I see a very good reason why we should invest in green transport this is because I inhale a lot of fumes from cars and I know that is not good for my health. So that is the reason on why we should invest in green transport.
    That is my reason on why we should invest in green transport. Do you think the same way too?

    I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is Help Nature. Help Nature is what we need most in our country because where I live there is a lot of pollution, destruction of habitats, and deforestation. If we continue deforestation, humans won’t have enough oxygen to live because trees give us oxygen while we give them carbon dioxide. We need to plant trees in order to get oxygen.
    We need to also stop pollution if not people and animals might get sick. Pollution also causes climate change and reactions in our environment.
    Destruction of habitats has to be stopped because they are homes to animals and people. If we destroy habitats, they won’t have homes to live or rest in. These are the main reasons why we need to Help Nature.

    I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is to HELP NATURE I think this because in places like Lagos, Nigeria there are too many cars and these cars are causing fumes to get into the atmosphere and when this happens it causes greenhouse effect and contributes to air pollution and causes health problems to living things but if there are enough plants and trees the fumes would be reduced and the air will be cleaner and Lagos would have less heat and it would be a better place to live, along with Port Harcourt because in Port Harcourt there are not many cars but almost no trees and because of that the place is very hot and this is why I think HELP NATURE would be the best for my country Nigeria

    I think this is the important to build back greener is; invest in green transport, because in Lagos 4;00 in the morning all the cars are in the middle of the road and it causes air pollution is caused and Lagos is the most populated state in Nigeria. So I think we should make electric cars and plant should be planted like three or more than three, maybe even a thousand trees. So we have to help climate and reduce covid19 and build back greener.

    Thank you Burnet News Club for this big question.
    I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is investing in green transportation. In school one of my favorite teachers Mr. David, sometimes tells us about his life stories, he tells us about life in Lagos and how horrible it is waking up as early as 4:00am and getting stuck in traffic and instead of inhaling clean air he inhales burning fossil fuels from various vehicles, which can damage the lungs and the and destroy the ozone layer and the atmosphere. Lagos is the most populated city in Nigeria and Africa, It has almost 20million people Imagine how much pollution there is and how much fossil fuels that is burnt every day, don’t you think our atmosphere has suffered enough? So can you now see the need to invest in green transportation?
    Where I live, we go out with cars very often, but if government invest in green transportation, it will reduce the impact of burning fossil fuels. Also good for people who are allergic to smoke like my dad, so what do you think?
    I think making vehicles that use clean power sources (solar, wind, etc...) is a great idea, and the electric cars Elon Musk has started producing (Tesla) is a plan in action. Do you have any other ideas?

    Thank you for that question BNC, I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is Investing in green transport. Where I live, in Lagos city I have heard many stories about how it is here. In this city you hardly breathe in fresh air because no matter how early you wake up (3.00am/4.00am), as you come out of your gate the air would be filled with smoke, a choking smoke. Their roads are to jam packed because Lagos is the most populated city in Nigeria so, every car brings out smoke which makes the air polluted and dangerous .That is why we need green transportation. Cars powered by solar energy and traffic to help our trucks, cars, bikes, drive or ride well on the roads would be a good example of green transportation. What about your country which helps the most and how does it help?
    (NO )Cars with smoke
    No more cars with smoke

    …….I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is Invest in green energy.
    I think this because, where I live in Lagos(The most populated state in Africa), every house has a generator, without it, life will be hard there. The smoke coming out of the generator is harmful to us and the Ozone Layer. I think what we can do to slow climate change is using solar panel, wind power, etc. We can use solar panel or wind power, cause the energy is renewable. Solar is gotten from the sun, and wind power is gotten from the wind. We can even help in making new electric cars instead of fuel cars. Electric cars use renewable energy, and don’t exhaust smoke. Let’s try to save earth.

    I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is to Help Nature. I think so because where I live in Jos, there are lots of land with no vegetation, stadiums and other road projects have also resulted in cutting down lots of trees which would have help our climate, provide us oxygen, use the carbon dioxide we give out to grow and produce food for us. So we need to plant trees, Individuals and the government can put hands together and help nature by fighting the causes of climate change in this country by helping nature so that we can live happier and healthier and have a comfortable earth to give the next generation.

    BIG
    QUESTION ?

    I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is to help nature. I think this because reducing pollution is under help nature, as well as invest in green transport, support in green business, protect the habitat of animals and plant more trees. Animals will be exist because of climate change. Without trees there will be more in the earth and the eco system will not be balanced. For example Lagos is very hot because they only have few trees and too developed gas or smoke comes out of every corner, while in Abuja it is not that hot because there are more trees in Abuja than Lagos. But were I live (in Jos) it is not hot (it is a little bit cold), because there more trees in Jos than Abuja and Lagos. With this I come to this conclusion to say PLEASE LETS WORK TOGETHER AND HELP NATURE.

      I agree if we help nature because nature is everywhere and without no trees there's no wood and you need wood to start fire and we also need nature for types of animals and bugs and without animals our world will be blank because most things are made out of wood.

    Thank you for that question BNC.
    ….I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is “helping nature”.
    I think this because our whole atmosphere has been covered with smoke and people don’t even care to reduce it . For example, in Plateau state Nigeria, we have a lot of business places that their work destroys the atmosphere. So we really need to help nature, if not it can rise the hot level of the earth. ……………..Our earth would soon be uninhabitable if we do nothing! So let’s work hard to save it.

But more brands are becoming Eco-friendly like Mcdonalds, Adidas, Tesco, Asda, electric cars and lots more! We also need more of litter pickers because it's necessary for all over the world. More projects like Team Trees, trees and plants produce oxygen which we need to live.

    I think the most important way to build back greener in my country is to invest in green energy. Where I live, there are lot of cars that bring out fumes which can cause sicknesses and death. Our ozone layer is being destroyed because of the fumes of these cars. The destruction of the ozone layer can cause serious damage to the community and can also cause fires more easily. In other parts of Nigeria, buildings catch fire easily. I think if the government brings electric cars to my country there will be less climate change and the world will be a better place to live. I hope my points have convinced you?

    I think the most important way to build back greener is to invest in green energy. I think we should invest in electric cars so there will be less fumes coming out of cars .Its best to create cars that run with electricity so the people around will not breath it in and fall sick. There will be less Global warming. We should also have cars that work on solar cars. The cars we have now can kill humans, animals, trees and other living things. Investing in green energy will really help our climate so a lot of people would not get sick. Fumes from cars don’t only affect health the kill people. That will go a long way to help pour climate.

    I would like to add to everyone's comments from around the would because climate change isn't just effecting one country or one continent it effects the entir would so I would like so say that by saying that in my country, Wales we have a lot of ways we could use to try to help the enviroment some of those ways are: we should try to stop fly tipping as we experience a lot of fly tipping and it has been made illegale but most of the people who fly tip don't get caught. Another way we could help the enviroment is to start up more projects like #TEAMTREES and to stop deforestation unless necessary. But it isn't all bad because car companies in the UK have said that by 2030 they shall replace all fosil fuel cars with electric cars and companies like Tesco, ASDA, IKEA, Apple, McDonald's, Amazon UK, Google and Adidas have made their companies and factories more 'Green' and better for the enviroment.

    I think that in the UK Helping nature is the most important "Build back greener" because Pollution could reach a catastrophic level and the amount of trees we would have left if we continue to cut down and not re plant could cause serious air restrictions and if just one animal goes extinct would mess up the food chain immensely and say pigs went extinct, you would never have pork ever again. That is why i think that helping Nature is the most important "Build back greener"

Most people are using gas cars, most people are using log burners and people are having BBQ's. You can have coal BBQ's or even gas BBQ's this is all bad for the environment. There are also many factories and aeroplanes are bad for the whole earth but people need these things for clothes in factories aeroplanes for jobs and holidays.

    I'd like to start saying that the best way to stop using fossil fuels in Wales is to invest in researchers to research on how to stop climate change or technology that can make a new source of energy, after all, we're living in the age of new technology that could benefit the people of Wales or the entire planet. Building onto my previous sentence I'd like to also say that In wales 20% of their energy is renewable (source: https://gov.wales/sites/default/files/publications/2019-10/energy-generation-in-wales-2018.pdf) which means that Wales is Eco friendly which is great for the planet and I hope that we can make that number to 50%, I also believe that the best way to be greener in Wales is to slowly use more renewable energy like wind turbine and solar panels replacing fossil fuels.

    I'd like to add to everyone's point, because I feel like we need to make a strong point about climate change as it is affecting our world and our daily life. Here in Wales we aren't affected by climate change too much, but the rain tells us something. A great way to build back greener is by supporting green businesses that have minimal plastic in selling their items. A way to help nature would be to stop deforestation and start more litter picks on beaches this is very necessary if we want to stop climate change together! What's it like when you live ? Do you feel that we need to stop climate change urgently? I personally feel that climate change is so much more important than Covid-19 at the moment . If you don't know what climate change can do it can cause floods, it kills animals and many other things can happen due to climate change. Instead of using a plastic cup and then throw it out in the waste bins how about putting it in the recycling. All these little things add up it's just pure laziness that people are using the sea as a bin. To help build back greener we can raise money to buy more wind turbines which would be better for the environment instead of using toxic gases to produce energy. Using electric cars would cut down of petrol and diesel cars which means less toxic gases in the air while also it's not great since electric cars are expensive and they need energy to charge which takes energy. Using solar panels for factories instead of smoke/steam it would not produce malignant gases and smoke into the air as a normal factory would. Not continuing with deforestation would help build back greener a project called #TEAMTREES are stopping deforestation unless necessary. Does anyone agree with my point? What is your opinion about deforestation!?

Using solar panels for factories instead of smoke/steam it would not produce malignant gases and smoke into the air as a normal factory would. Not continuing with deforestation would help build back greener a project called #TEAMTREES are stopping deforestation unless necessary. Does anyone agree with my point? What is your opinion about deforestation!?

    I think the most important way to build back greener in our country is by planting of trees. It gives us oxygen and it will help us to get food and nutrients.

    I think the most important way to build back greener in my country Nigeria is by investing in green transport because when we make more electric transportation vehicles, there will be way lesser fumes in the atmosphere and the oxygen we breathe is going to be very fresh. But before we make electric cars we need help from other countries and help from the government.

    BIG QUESTION
    I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is help nature. I think this because where I live Jos, plateau state, a lot of mining of tin has taken place here. Mining tin has caused a lot damages like; erosion, sinkholes and deforestation. We also have to reduce pollution because the fumes from cars and industries go to the sky and causes climate change. We also have to protect the habitat from being dirty so it doesn’t make the road get bad, dirty and floody. It also doesn’t make the road look good and nice. We can grow trees to stop deforestation because it gives us food, shade and air to breath. We should not deforest but we should afforest to make income. Some of the trees give us energy and nutrients like mangoes and moringa gives when we are sick. We can do this if we try to plant trees. What do you think?

    The Big Question
    I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is to Invest in green transport.
    We should invest in green transport because it will stop the burning of fossil fuels and cars will run on wind and solar energy. It will change the country because you won’t be smelling smoke everywhere you go. If you keep on inhaling smoke, you’ll damage your lungs. That is my opinion on why we should invest in green transport.

    Thank you for that wonderful question Burnet News Club. I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is to help nature, because where I live in the people do lots of mining which causes lots of erosion and kills the landscape of the earth. The reason we don’t have to give money to experts to help stop 🚫 climate change is because if we work as a team we can put a stop to the effects of climate change by reducing burning. An idea I have, is to make huge buses🚌 in each country but not more than 500 buses, so we can reduce the effects of smoke because if we continue the use of burning or releasing gases it will someday affect us badly by allowing the rays out of the sun 🌞 that causes damages to our skin, and that is when people will start taking responsibility as they did to covid-19.

    Thank you BNC for this question
    …….I think the most important way to build back greener in Nigeria is Invest in green energy.
    I think this because, where I live in Lagos(The most populated state in Africa), every house has a generator, without it, life will be hard there. The smoke coming out of the generator is harmful to us and the Ozone Layer. I think what we can do to slow climate change is using solar panel, wind power, etc. We can use solar panel or wind power, cause the energy is renewable. Solar is gotten from the sun, and wind power is gotten from the wind. We can even help in making new electric cars instead of fuel cars. Electric cars use renewable energy, and don’t exhaust smoke. Let’s try to save earth.
