1- The role of scientific research centers: Scientific research centers have an important role in providing solutions to the problems that the environment suffers from And trying to discover alternative and environmentally friendly ways instead of the methods that cause its deterioration, as the work of these institutions does not depend on assessing the environmental pollutants and the extent of their harm to the environment.
2- The role of educational institutions: The role of educational institutions is translated from schools, universities, colleges and others by including curricula with specialized content on the environment, how to preserve it, and other curricular and extracurricular activities that increase students' awareness and their responsibility towards the environment.
3- The role of the administrative authorities: the greatest responsibility for preserving the environment rests with government institutions, by setting strict laws, a system to monitor the nature of chemicals used in industries, and to properly manage the causes of pollutants, as some developed countries have enacted laws that prohibit the use of toxic chemicals That negatively affect humans and living organisms. The role of individuals in preserving the environment: The role of individuals in preserving the environment is represented in many procedures and behaviors, including:

4- Use cups made of glass or ceramic instead of those made of paper.
5- Disconnect unused devices from the electrical plug; For the energy it consumes.
6- Carbon emissions can also be reduced, such as:
1- Using degradable materials.
2- Use of appropriate means of transportation: It is preferable to use transportation means that consume fossil fuels sparingly and less than other means of transportation.
3- Recycling: Some wastes act as an alternative to rare raw materials, such as: petroleum, natural gas, coal, mineral ores, and trees, as they are collected and processed to manufacture new materials or for reuse, from materials that can be recycled, such as paper, metals, glass. , And plastic. Therefore, countries must face a dual challenge: Rebuilding better means striving For a more greener recovery.
