Session 2: how can we "build back greener"?

Welcome to the Global Conversation sessions!

If you have missed a session at school or would like to recap what you have learnt, then work through the activities below.

In this video, Tom and Olivia walk you through each activity or scroll down and read through each step instead.

STEP 1

Take a look at this cartoon and answer the questions.

STEP 2

Session keywords

Can you summarise the keywords below in ten words or less?

Green

When something is described as “green” it means that it is environmentally friendly (kind to the environment).

For example, “green research” means research about how people could help the environment.

  • Build back greener

    The pandemic has caused a lot of damage. Now, governments need to decide how to help countries to recover - or “build back”. Lots of people think that going back to normal is not good enough. They think governments should “build back greener” and make decisions that help the environment and the climate as well as people. For example, by spending money to help nature recover or making new rules to slow climate change.

STEP 3

Why should we "build back greener"? Read through these reasons and share your opinion below. Make sure you can give a reason for your choice.


STEP 4

BBG.png

Here are some ways to build back greener and what they mean.

  1. Invest in green energy = Stop using fossil fuels (coal, crude oil and natural gas) and start using renewable energy sources. For example, solar power or wind power.
  2. Support green business = Give money to businesses that are environmentally friendly and that are not bad for the climate.
  3. Help nature = For example, by planting trees, reducing pollution or protecting habitats.
  4. Support green research = Give money to help experts find out how to slow climate change.
  5. Invest in green transport = Make transport more climate-friendly. For example, make more electric cars or a green public-transport system.

Now, some questions to help you evaluate them:

  • Which of these ways to “build back greener” will help the climate most?
  • Which of these ways to “build back greener” will help the most people?
  • Which of these ways to “build back greener” will change how we live the most?
  • Which of these ways to “build back greener” is the most important for your country?
  • Which of these ways to “build back greener” is easiest for a person to do without government support?

Challenge: can you come up with your own questions?

And finally, if you could only choose one way to "build back greener", which one would it be and why?

    First cartoon:
    ( Earth and Covid-19).
    There is a conflict between Earth and Covid-19 Earth is fighting with all its might to fight COVID-19.

    Second cartoon:
    (Earth, Covid-19 and climate change).
    The most important point in wrestling is always knowing the opponent's weakness point, and here while the Earth fights this Covid 19 ,climate change is growing dramatically, and the probability of his defeat becomes very weak, as if climate change is looking at this wrestling with irony, this cartoon shows us how the Earth is busy getting rid of Covid 19, and doesn't care about the issue of climate change How bad the consequences will be.

      In the first cartoon we see that the earth and covid-19 are fighting. I interpret this as even though the covid 19 may be strong we pull through. However, because we are fighting the fight against covid-19 we are not focusing as much on climate change. This is shown through the suns angry expression. We often focus more on the issues of covid and ignore the issues facing the climate. Due to the lockdown it has been better for the climate in some aspects but I personally feel more can be done. Another way I saw this cartoon was that we as people say we will save energy and do all these things for the environment. In reality we do not do as much for the environment as we say we will.

        If the government can build back greeners by providing more vehicles for the transportation of goods and mechanical engineering tractors for cultivation because the pollution's are bad for the human health which will increase the numbers of untimely deaths which we don't want and also the cutting downs of tree should stop so that the deforestation won't affect the ozone layer.

      I think that all the options above are extremely valid and all of them to be supportive throughout the process to help solve the problem, However, in my opinion, transportation and research to build back greener are the most important steps since research could propose different methods to completely solve the issue. Transportation is a major contributing factor therefore if we get greener ways to travel we will stop making the issue worse and can focus on solving it with the research.


      The first image shows the struggles we are currently going through to fight and destroy the coronavirus and the second picture shows that we are struggling to fight the current situation but the bigger impending threat is Global Warming.

        Hi! Truly everyone has his or her opinion mine is to help nature.
        If we plant 15millions of trees then we would have enough air to collect carbon dioxide and in return it would probably produce oxygen. we know every living thing can not do without oxygen

      One of the most impacted by people situation is COVID-19, it has caused death to millions of people and we are trying to defeat it together, that's what is going on in Picture 1. However in picture 2 the sun comes in and also we can see that earth is getting tired, this means that earth is getting global warming which is also a very important thing in our life. The global warming has destroyed our nature, wild life, and weather. I thing the two pictures are trying to tell us that we have two problems and we have to defeat both of them which is quite hard for us. So i just want to say that here is no other planet for us and we should treat it fairly (:

    Which of these ways to "build back greener" will help the climate most?
    I think the way that will slow down climate change the most is to stop using fossil fuels, and to create transportation that depends on electricity (1 and 5), I chose these two methods, because now in the current situation, I think tree planting is no longer very helpful in this problem, because climate change has increased and expanded, I mean, it wants bigger and more influential ways to challenge this problem.

      I disagree on the comment you made on tree planting because as trees grows, they help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in trees and soil and the releasing of oxygen into the air.

        I didn't say that tree planting has no effect on improving the climate, but rather what I meant is that tree planting has a limited effect, because what if we plant more trees and still use fossil fuels ?, Here tree planting is destroyed due to the effect of fossil fuels that will affect climate change, in the end, I would say that more steps must be taken than planting trees, which is stopping the use of fossil fuels.

      I totally disagree with you between 1900 and 2020 thousands of acres of forests have been wiped out and the quality of air is getting worse scientists have studied the problem and they came out with the conclusion that we must stop logging trees and plant more a tree can save the life of person it's true that cutting down with fossil fuels and using clean power instead is the best solution but this can't happen over a short time period of time may be we must wait for the a century to stop using fossil fuels so planting trees,reducing reusing and recycking seem to me immediate actions that we could take. Whether we like it or not the industry is here to stay until the moment we could find solutions let's plant and follow the 3R's. I hope that everyone of us feels involved. Governments alone can't solve the problem.

      If each house has a tree it will help and reduce climate change and if we agree we can solve this problem together as one.

      I agree too Maybe we could also try to stop air pollution by a reduction in global carbon dioxide emissions by using public transports instead of private cars , have you ever know that around 7 million people die every year from exposure to polluted air. And it will help stopping increases in fires, insect pests, and the prevalence of diseases transmitted by food, water, and insects

        This is true, but this method is not available in all regions of the world, for example in our country Palestine, public transportation such as train or tramway doesn't exist at all, so the Palestinians can't stop using private transportation that depends on fuel.
        Electric transport one that relies on renewable energy is the best way to use environmentally friendly transportation, and this method can be available in all countries of the world.

      I agree to this comment that, we can plant trees without government support, if every household would decide to plant trees in and around their houses, according to the number of people in each house. With this, they can take care of them to grow without hiring anyone to take care of the trees. It is said that,"when the last tree dies, the last man dies," why not then plant a tree for each man alive around our homes?.

      Planting trees is a obvious answer, but in Hong Kong we have limited supplies on land and therefore it is not easy to do so. But there are many ways we can do as individuals without government’s help. For example, I can walk to school which is about 15 minutes away from my home instead of asking my parents to drive me to school. Also we can turn off the air conditioner at night if the weather is not too hot and turn off the light when we leave home. If we all do the same. we can help reduce carbon emission substantially.

      We can build back greener through the following:
      1.Planting of trees: Both government and individual should join hands together to plant trees in our house, streets and public places.
      2.Stop falling of trees:Government should make a strong law for punishing anyone found falling trees.This law should be enforced by police forces and military.
      3.Control environmental pollution: people should be educated on how to control environmental pollution.This will check personal hygiene,burning of grasses and rosting of animal in the abbatoir.

    I would like to ask, now climate change is caused by two factors, the human factor and the natural factor, here we focus on solving the human factors, do we focus on the human factor because it has a greater impact than the natural factor, or because the natural factor can't stop it and we can't do anything about it?

        Yes, natural factors could be devastating, but our natural efforts can equally minimize or totally neutralize these natural causes to climate change. For instance, if we all join hands to plant trees around our abodes, obey the government during tree planting campaigns without being pushed to do, these trees can serve as wind-breakers as well as conserving our nature.

      Poll observation : I checked the results of the poll after doing it and I observed that most of us believe in scientists and their credibility, more than 92 %of the participants think that the warnings of scientists are reason number one of building back to greener, after that the behaviour of governments which should lead the action. Statistics never lie and I urge more scientists to show in the media and on even social media used by us as teenagers like Instagram. Scientists are the real celebrities of this era and should be given more space to inform, warn and recommend actions. Their view should be taken seriously and not used just for an election campaign or for political reasons. I hope scientists lead and be heard more and more

          I was asking myself the same question why some don't think scientific opinion is not a reason enough to building back greener. Well maybe they think so because there are counter theories that climate change is just a myth or not caused by human activities and it is just a natural cycle of the planet. I even see well-known political figures talk about this. I may understand this doubt of some even in science. In all cases differences are enriching. Should we trust sciences, I personally do and respect the different opinion.

      My dear, God created the earth in a state of thermal equilibrium, but human influences are what cause the imbalance and because human factors are the main cause of climate change through air pollution and the increase in carbon dioxide emissions in various ways such as fossil fuels (and here the climate is a natural factor that we humans control us And we changed it for the worse, unfortunately) so we must focus on the human factor because it is the main influence on the natural factor, and it can also stop the natural factor and we can do many about it such as rebuilding greener and supporting everything that is green and environmentally friendly. Really, if we cooperate in that, we will achieve success. Broadly, for example, compare the village, which has fewer people, has large areas of agricultural land, clean air and moderate climate, with cities with high population density, factories, cars, little agriculture, and its usually high climate.
      You would really believe that we can change the climate and control the natural factor through the human factor.

    In my opinion, planting trees has a limited impact on climate change, as we all know that climate change also affects agriculture, because over time the soil becomes unfit for agriculture due to climate change, so these plantings will be devastating, so the best way to reduce climate change is to resort To renewable energy, we all know in a clear way that fossil fuels are the global and fundamental cause of climate change.

      Am sorry, I don't support your comment because in Ghana, the soil is till good for agriculture and as well as for planting trees. And come to think of it, you can apply organic fertilizer and water the trees frequently till it survives in climate change. That is the way to go.

        We all know that climate change is caused by the biggest and main cause of fossil fuels, climate change greatly affects agriculture and soil in particular, so over time, if we do not stop using fossil fuels, the soil will be affected and will deteriorate significantly, and the soil will become unfit for agriculture, so it will decrease the opportunity to plant trees, so I think that the effect of planting trees is limited, because with the passage of time, if we do not take bigger steps such as going to renewable energy and stop using fossil fuels, planting trees will have no effect on tackling climate change ,planting trees is something that helps stop climate change, but taking this step (planting trees) on its own will not help.

    The answers are 1-Earth, Covid-19 and climate change
    2-Earth is fighting Covid 19 and has forgotten climate change
    3- The world's interest in fighting Covid 19, and they do not give enough attention to climate change
    It is true that Covid 19 is a dangerous and life threatening thing
    But climate change is more dangerous and it must be taken care of, resisted and tried to get rid of it as soon as possible

      I beilive that the pandamic is more dangerous than the climate change .
      Globally Corona 19 causes many dies 3,164,887 people have died so far from it despite of development while the climate change is exepted to cause approximately 250 000 additional deathes per year .
      Climate change has results that are not timely and it's sign appears over Time while Corona virus is a fast and rapidly spreading sign and it's impact appears oh humanity in short period of Time .

    Hi it's an observant sparrow
    In the first photo I think it's the earth and the virus in a fight and the earth starts hitting the virus. They are boxing.
    I think the pinter would mean that the earth kills the virus. And it will die. Then the earth can live in security and without any problems.

    In the full picture, a big boxer appears, it's climate change and it looks nervous. And it will kill the virus and the earth.
    The message of the cartoon: I think the pinter would mean that humans react too quickly to the virus and forget about climate change and its impact on the whole world

        If Earth 's inhabitants fight back Climate change the way they are fighting the Virus we will certainly beat this opponent. Lessons to be drawn are : applying a worldwide strategy, a leading organisation to give scientific practical instructions and a run not for vaccine this time but for a permanent cure to environmental issues. We are facing the same opponent all over the globe and as it said " United we stand divided we fall" which means collaborative effort to heal our planet and save ourselves. Another important lesson learned is that immediate action saves lives and avoid us collective perish. So as you said plenty of lessons learned that can be used as a way out from the maze of climate change

      People still want to use the non-renewable energy till they see that it has completely damage the climate of the world because they still do not trust in science as we that has been educated on this. They still want to see a sign that there is global warming .
      Also the government does not give more attention to the climate because they are focusing on the pandemic for now and also their personal gain because they do not think ahead.
      Also the state for now has not been able to produce enough renewable energy for the whole country to use and talk off for vehicle and others.

    In the second cartoon, we can see the huge boxer which represents the climate change. The planet and the Virus are still boxing while forgetting the presence of the climate change. This cartoon means that it's time to make a change and to be aware of the real importance of the climate change

    What happens is that Covid 19 is wiping out the planet and planet Earth confronts it and fights it.
    This carton shows us that the entire planet faces Covid 19 and leaves it facing other problems .

    The second carton
    People of the carton (Planet Earth , Covid 19 , Climate change).
    What is happening is that the planet earth is fighting the facing Covid 19 despite the spread of many problems around the world .
    This carton shows us that the planet only fights Covid 19 and leaves fighting and facing the problem of climate change , which is one of the biggest problems around the world , although is causes great damage to the environment , however planet Earth does not care about it and does not fight it like it fights Covid 19.

    In the first image:
    I see two wrestlers fighting in the wrestling hall, the first is Planet Earth and the second is the Covid-19 virus ..

    Solutions:

    On a personal level :
    By putting on the muzzle; And the safety distance, and reporting when any symptoms of the virus appear, and trying not to spread rumors and get rid of them because of their harm to society

    At the international level:
    They must establish more than one protocol and plan to deal with the virus, distribute vaccines to the medical staff first and then to people who suffer from the appearance of clear symptoms, and try to spread awareness about the virus, especially for children.

    In the second image:
    I see wrestlers who are close in physical form fight, and a wrestler who is larger than them comes in size and structure and it appears that it is climate change ..

    The message it contains:

    The world and countries are doing their utmost to defeat the Covid-19 virus, and that climate change plays a big role in this equation.


    suggested solutions :

    Resorting to planting a lot of trees, and clean renewable energy sources instead of fuels such as solar energy, wind energy and water energy, and removing factories from residential areas to reduce air pollution, recycling waste Where there are many countries that have resorted to converting garbage into energy or reusing some of it, such as melting iron and metals, remaking things from them, and recycling plastics.

    We must preserve water sources, try to clean them, and get rid of garbage away from them.

This means that earth is using all it resources to defeat and eradicate the pandemic without us realizing that climate change is the bigger and more dangerous enemy. This illustration is practically telling us that we should redirect some of the resources that was kept for the pandemic for climate change like allocating some funds for planting of trees.

This cartoons are basically saying that we should not only focus on the virus but also tackle the climate change seriously because if we do not, it will affect us later and kill people more than the virus is already doing now.

    By safeguarding and protecting the forest, it would play a big role in reducing climate change and even help in making it greener.

    In the second cartoon, while the earth and the virus are fighting, the climate change is putting on an angry face.
    In summary, this shows while the earth and the virus are fighting they are neglecting the fact that their fight is having effects on the climate. Climate change is being neglected by these two parties.

        It has also reduced the level of noise pollution in some countries like Nigeria where the markets are usually very filled and rowdy increasing the level of noise in such areas where these markets are located.

    Hi, warm_hearted context here,
    My opinion on these interesting illustrations is this;

    The first image shows just how much of a struggle it has been for the world to fight the covid-19 pandemic. I think it was intentional to show them being the same size and having equal capacity to defeat each other, depending on how effectively we fight the virus.
    The second image uncovers a much bigger growing threat, which is climate change. We can only see a tiny glimpse of this threat in the first one. The second image shows just how huge the issue of climate change has become, but how oblivious the earth is to its effects, mainly because it feels it has its hands full with a serious opponent.
    In conclusion, these two images have easily created the impression that the problem of climate change must be addressed no matter the other major issues that destabilize our world today.

I do not mean smaller in the sense of less important but rather just to say that we need to get prepared for the larger issues we have at hand. While we deal with the corona virus we should prepare ourselves, we should already prepare to fight a much larger threat which is the issue of climate change. This is a clear example on how the battle is won but the war is not yet over.

    Which of these ways to “build back greener” is easiest for a person to do without government support?

    1.Support green business; A person should prefer to purchase products manufactured by green business. For example, Here in Ghana, when I'm buying any item I check to see whether the plastic container is reusable and the company that makes it is eco-friendly. When I do this, I give money to businesses that are environmentally friendly and that are not bad for the climate.

    2. Help nature; A person can also join school clubs or other community clubs that engage in planting more trees. These clubs also engage in public education to build back greener.

    In my first opinion I think investing in green energy because green energy does not emits carbon dioxide and other green house gases that contribute to climate change. Also investing in green energy like solar power , wind power or biogas or biomass energy. And also help nature by the plantation of trees, reducing pollution or protecting the habitat.

    I think the most essential way for my country to build back greener is point 3. To help nature for example by planting trees, reducing air pollution or protecting habitats.
    I think this is the best way because if we plant new trees to replace those that have been cut the trees will absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to aid them in photosynthesis which decrease global warming and climate change and also improve the quality of the air we breathe. Also some plant serve as a source of food to people and some can also have medicinal values. Moreover,it supports wildlife as some animals live on plants as their habitats.

    3)In order to help the environment and to maintain our safety and the environment not to be harmed, we must preserve the addition of it and plant trees to purify the air and not throw waste into the sea so that the sea water remains pure and pure for the soul to relax and reassure.

    Characters in the cartoon are earth and virus. The cartoon is telling us that we can defeat the virus. The best way to build back greener in my country Ghana is :HELP NATURE.
    HELP NATURE :In my country Ghana many people illegally cut down tree(deforestation )for coal etc. When the is a lot of trees in my country ,it helps in blocking strong winds. Trees contribute in my country to the environmental by providing fresh air and oxygen. Trees are important in my country because they Absorb carbon dioxide and other dangerous gasses. Trees help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in trees and soil and release oxygen into the atmosphere.

    Global economic and health systems are facing extreme pressure in 2020. Government at all levels are focused on responding to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic but at the same time the climate crisis continue to pose a significant challenge.
    I think COVID-19 should not be a reason to revenge on global climate commitments.
    In my country, Ghana, the government and the public were not even paying attention to climate change when there was no COVID-19. And because COVID-19 pandemic caught everybody unaware and has aggravated. We can plant trees to help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. It reduce wind speeds and cool the air as they lose moisture and reflect heat upward from their leaves
    It also absorbs odors and pollutant gases and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.
    In one year. An acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people. And we also can do all without the government’s help

    In the first cartoon, it shows us that Covid 19 is a big problem, and the Earth is now fighting it, and this is how people see today.
    As for the second cartoon, Covid 19 was revealed ,its size is small and there is something bigger than it, which is climate change, and with that, the Earth is still fighting with Covid 19, and this is the situation of people, but it doesn't know how dangerous what it's doing.

    I would like to present this idea to the governments to build back greener, they can raise the prices of fossil fuels in all countries of the world, thus reducing the use of fossil fuels and moving towards the use of renewable energies, for example in my country Palestine, the prices of fossil fuels are very high, so we seek to gradually move towards the use of renewable energies, as you find in every Palestinian home a solar heater, I hope that this idea reduces the problem of climate change.

    Characters: Earth and Covid 19 and I want to say this cartoon is a very crossroads Earth’s fight against Corona virus Because of an unexpected attack from Covid 19 and the spread of its damage on the ground, as well as the earth is trying everything it can defend, but the virus continues to attack it But this cartoon is a message for you to continue the defense by adhering to the methods of prevention against Covid 19, including staying at home, wearing a mask and sterilization ...
    Also, this is a message to pay attention to climate change .
    In the next picture we see a giant figure. Come on climate change because of the Covid 19 attack. Earth is fighting Covid 19 with all it has, but forgets about climate change. We must take measures to change the climate, including 1. Pricing carbon 2. Ending subsidies to dig fossil fuels using renewable energy.
    In the end, do not forget the message from this cartoon , thank you for your reading🗺️

    Qn: If I could only choose one to 'build back greener' , it would be helping nature i.e
    *By planting trees
    *By recycling plastics
    *By reporting those who degrade the environment.
    This because it is easy to carry out in any area.

      I think so, because it is easy to plant trees, to reduce the use of plastic for citizens. It is easy to do that, but will this stop climate change, does not reduce climate change, but it will reduce and help, and that is why governments have to make a decision in order not to exacerbate and increase climate change , We become unable to control it.

    In cartoon 2 the man is watching who is the result of all this struggle .But he seems strong with muscle. May be he is strong because he should have a part in this struggle and shouldn't just stand and watch . His role is to keep social distancing, to wear the masks, to clean everything , to spread the hygiene culture.

    Tree planting helps to reduce landslides and drought . Although trees take long to grow, they still are very important . While the other ways mostly reduce pollution but do not to stop but do not help to reduce the drought and landslides. All these ways do help to slow climate change so you can't use mostly one because it can't reduce all causes of climate change.
    In conclusion, I don't think there is any best way because one way cannot solve all the effects of climate change.

    Step 4
    Ways to build back green in Gaza city in Palestine.
    go green in my community needs to understand the reasons of pollution. Today I will talk about soil pollution which makes it very difficult to build green back a grain.

    Soil is considered polluted because it contains material or substances in extraordinary quantities or concentrations, whether by increase or decrease, causing a risk to human, animal and plant health, or engineering facilities at the expense of agricultural lands or surface and ground water and is considered one of the most prominent environmental problemsIt is the most complex and difficult to solve.

    Soil pollution leads to contamination of agricultural crops, which leads to harm to the health of the human who feeds on it directly, and through the transmission of pollutants to animal products such as milk, eggs and meat.

    The sources of soil pollution are many, including the atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere, including humans and their activities
    Soil pollution solutions
    Work to dig contaminated soil and move it to places far from human contact. Aeration of contaminated soil; To get rid of buried gases. Heat treatment, by introducing heat to the surface layer of the soil and raising its temperature to purify chemical pollutants from the soil and extract contaminated steam from it. Biological treatment that involves microbial digestion of some organic chemicals, so that these techniques include land cultivation and biostimulation. Extraction of groundwater and soil vapor using an active electromechanical system. Containing soil pollutants, such as building a dam or paving in the place. Treatment with plants such as willow to extract heavy metals. The use of fungi to metabolize pollutants and to accumulate heavy metals.
    My solution for this is support new projects and organic food but it is expensive for poor people in Gaza . So gradually and step by step we can build Gaza green a grain

    God willing, we will defeat this virus.
    The message illustrated by the picture: We must leave the differences between us and be one hand to confront this virus and defeat it.


    second picture .
    I see Coronavirus, the world, and climate change.

    I think that humans and the public are concerned with the eradication of Coronavirus and have not paid attention to climate change
    How do you want us to eliminate Corona virus when we did not care about the basic problem (climate change)?

    The cartoon's message to us is: To pay attention to the two problems, Corona virus and climate change, especially climate change, because it is the basis of that virus and has more harm, especially on future generations.

    I see that humanity is trying to attack the virus without benefit, in reference to the world's inability in the face of this virus that infected millions of people and led to the death of hundreds and thousands of people in front of the inability of people to find a solution to it.

    Cartoon 2
    I see the Corona virus and climate change as two major problems that require a solution to them from the government and citizens, but humanity has paid attention to solving the virus problem and has not paid attention to the climate problem although it can be solved in more than one way, but in my opinion the reason for this is their belief that Corona is temporary and its impact is expected to be temporary. As for the climate, it has existed for years and will remain with us for decades, and in my opinion, the climate did not notice everyone and did not affect a lot, and that it did not directly lead to deaths and I think that some of the epidemics in the past year were related to climate change. So far they are trying to find a solution to the Corona virus.

    Here I see the earth and covid 19 battling with each other. And their fight persists in relation to whats happening in the world today. Many countries are battling with this virus and some countries have already been hit by a second wave.
    Second cartoon
    People around the world today have left out a very important aspect that is climate change. So many industries are emitting greenhouse gases which are harmful to the environment leading to Global warming. And this has affected so many places mainly Antarctica. Antarctica is a uninhabited ice-covered landmass found at the site of the South pole. The melting of the ice has led to an increase in the sea levels which has led to flooding in most of the coastal towns and this has displaced billions of people leaving them homeless. Therefore we should really encourage people to invest in green energy and support green businesses to reduce the global warming and save as many lives as possible and at least give them a home.

    COVID-19 accidentally gave planet Earth much-needed break but there's no more time to waste. Climate change which is certainly one of the hardest times for humanity, is increasing that's Why we need to start working hand in hand and we need to step up to help our Earth.
    "What we do over the next 10 years will determine the future of humanity for the next 10,000 years." Said Prof Sir David King.
    So we should all do what we can to reduce our carbon footprints on this planet, which means taking care to use less fuel for transportation and electricity, and recycling goods like plastic water bottles or paper towels.
    In our country,Tunisia, our financial means do not allow us to invest in ecological business because they are so expensive and I guess the majority of countries are going through a big economic crisis. In fact, the best way to help build back greener in our country is by planting trees, reducing pollution, protecting habitats and stop using fossil fuels (coal, crude oil and natural gas) .Besides, we can start using eco- friendly energy sources.
    Have you ever known that taking public transport or the bike, a bus with 50 people on board, avoids using 50 cars?
    My question is how can I, as a young pupil, help stop climate change to protect our planet ?
    Stay safe ❤

    We see in the cartoon that (Covid 19 and the planet) in a fierce battle for control \ nIn 2020, a dangerous virus called Corona (Covid 19) caused a respiratory infection and many deaths with more infections.

    In the other cartoon, there is actually another heat wave, where there are many lockdowns, and many countries have been hit by a heat wave. In this article, it is not far from the countries of the world. The solution to this problem

    pollution
    The phenomenon of pollution is a difficult phenomenon and here we are in our current era, I will present some advice that may prevent the spread of pollution further
    1) Factories are built on people's homes, which prevent smoke from spreading from people's homes
    2) Green grows a lot of beautiful green trees that smell lovely

Here the wrestling intensified and the earth is fighting the virus The climate is volatile sometimes helps the earth in defeating Corona and sometimes not ... The most important point of knowledge is the weakness of the opponent (Corona) Corona weakening the cohesion of society in defeating the virus In the end the message is Earth is (people) who live in it ....

    What is happening?
    Planet Earth is grappling with Corona virus.
    Planet Earth is completely lonely, with no fans.
    Climate changes stands next to the Coronavirus and encourages it to win.


    What is this cartoon's message?
    The message is: Planet Earth is fighting the Covid virus with all its might.
    Governments have built hospitals to receive large numbers of patients, and doctors are watching to rest their patients tirelessly, and scientists have tried hard to discover vaccines for this emerging virus, and the general public, even the simple ones, sterilize and wear masks to protect themselves and their families. We also do not forget the role of the media in carrying out educational and awareness-raising publications about the dangers of this virus and ways to prevent it.

    On the other hand, this virus is constantly developing itself by encouraging climate changes, which caused it to have many mutations, such as: the Indian boom and the German boom.


    In the end, I wish peace to you and your families

    I think 🤔 reducing our dependece on fossil fuels ,using cleaner means of transport and helping nature are the best ideas. Fossil fuels are non renewable energy resources and using trees as a source of fuel in the 21st century should be out of the question. At least if we leave the trees alone, maybe we won't have to suffer with ending up with less oxygen . With all the technology we have now, we needn't use only fossil fuels for running all of our machines. If we can just use more electric cars and solar power,or give back to mother nature by planting more trees and making a reasonable habitat for the animals , then we're getting somewhere.

      You know, Building back greeners can be that easy and innovative. I mean in some countries ,as well as mine, people plant things on the roofs of their houses, and on their balconies for those who live in small apartments. Recently, I've read about planting without soil. People use long tubes full of water in certain circumstances to grow some vegetables. So far, if everyone feels the importance of changing; and if everyone builds greeners as much as he can, then the results will be delightfully shocking.

    Step 1:
    In the first image, we watch our Earth and Covid-19 fight. Our planet is resisting the pandemic to protect us from this contagious disease but some humans do not attach any importance to it while others devote their lives day and night to saving our Earth which asks for the help of its inhabitants in order to save it from the epidemic and save it. be more aware by taking precautions to fight Covid-19 while assuming responsibility for it. Oh! No! Again? Another fighter enters the wrestling ring to fight our poor planet; it's climate change. Human activities such as the use of fossil fuels, logging have an increasing influence on the climate. This causes a lot of impact on drinking water, soil, biodiversity and the population. This is why humans must adapt to climate change: vegetate the city, protect coastal areas and cultivate appropriate species.

    Step 3 :
    We should build back greener for many reasons, First of all because the situation is alarming as scientists estimate we will be victimised by global warming by 2030 in a terrible way. This is itself very scary. For this reason governments should set the example so that citizens follow them. Here I strongly believe change starts from within by doing daily Green practices like wise consumption and reducing littering. To me we are all crew there are no passengers so we have to lead the change ourselves. Is there a PLANET B? So far no and the deadlines of catastrophe are so close. We are having strong signs of dangerous future like floods in some parts of the world, fires because of heat waves and high levels of air pollution accompanied by deadly breathing diseases. Everything is almost contaminated, the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we inhale. These effects are a reason enough to act immediately to be back to greener

    In the first cartoon ,the world and the Covid are fighting which means the whole world is fighting against the Covid to protect the world from this crisis.
    In the second cartoon the world and the Covid are fighting and climate change is standing for it time to fight against the world so how do you think the world can build back greener ?well the government can help build back greener by investing money in building back greener.In my country the government has brought an exercise for the country which is planting one million seedlings in a day in schools,churches,and in our houses.
    Also by investing in green transport,driving less by using public buses or find new energy sources for cars eg. Solar, because motorized transport like cars and trucks,creates 23%of carbon emissions.In some countries like Malaysia,philippines, and Thailand are recycling less quarter plastics available for recycling of this plastics into valuable materials.By building back greener it will help protect the world and also help to reduce the rate of air pollution

    I'm caring theory I think we can help build back greener through recycling .In India a creative project allows paying school tuition through single use of plastics instead of money,this example will help the people in India to recycle a lot of plastics which will help reduce the rate of air pollution into the atmosphere The Republic of Korea has recently turned to some high tech devices which is going to fight to#Beat Air Pollution.📺5G-enable autonomous robots to monitor air quality.
    🛰️ A satellite offering real-time air quality data to the public.
    What is your country doing to achieve #clean air for all .
    This project will also help build back greener .

    HELP NATURE
    First of all, a Habitat is a natural dwelling place of a living organism which enables it to live successful. In Ghana, our terrestrial habitat are been attacked and sent away from their homes through deforestation and mining activities such as galamsey. Deforestation can lead to a direct loss of wildlife habitat as well as a general degradation of their habitat. The removal of trees and other types of vegetation reduces available food, shelter and breeding habitat. Animals may not be able to find adequate water, shelter and food to survive within remaining habitat. The loss of trees and other vegetation can cause climate change, desertification, soil erosion, fewer crops, flooding, increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and a host of problems for indigenous people. For this reason, the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission whose work is to protect and manage Ghana's wildlife resources must be called in order to create restrictions on deforestation. We can together build back greener for Ghana by practicing afforestation.

    I’m a “Ghanaian” the most importance way to build back greener for my country is ;
    1. Proper Investment In Green Energy ; Stop using fossil fuels (coal, crude oil and natural gases). Humanity is increased use of fossil fuels such as oil, coal, gases etc to generate electricity, run cars and power manufacturing and industry.
    2. My country should avoid this and start using renewable energy sources for examples solar power/panel or wind power. Solar panel it’s energy from the sun in order to create power( satellite). As well wind power is also a electricity that is created using the power of wind.
    3. This renewable energy source is very importance on our lives , we can used this energy sources to generate a lots things without this used fossils fuels with the attraction of a green house gas.

      Yes, I agree with you, and this is happening to us and to everyone and those responsible for the country and its protection I think that the use of
      renewable resources will be a strong incentive to develop and improve the
      climate, and this
      provides because they
      are renewed and improved significantly more than manufactured sources. Before the spread of the Corona pandemic, the renewable energy sector was witnessing steady growth.

      Year after year.
      Renewable energy sources remain strong no matter what happens and have eased countries' quarrels in prices, as it may cause problems between countries, dropping the price of a barrel of oil to its lowest historical level, and making fossil fuel companies, especially in the United States, struggle to find a place to store the product🖤

    In my opinion, I think we should encourage ourselves to develop the habit of building back greener.For exanple, by planting trees, reducing pollution or protecting habitat.We should help the government and Forestry Affairs to build many trees. In our world now, people are becoming many and the population rate is increasing in the world.So if 10,000 people are in a community, and there are only 10 trees around, the oxygen that we inhale will be less for those 10,000 people to breathe in.
    And if that happens, we will breathe in the bad air released from our system and it is
    not healthy. In my country Ghana, we are blessed with vegetation and good soil profiles, so if we come together to build back greener,i think it is important because the climate change can harm more than COVID_19, so we should build trees around our cities and villages to calm down the anger of climate.

      Great! With all the preventive measures on COVID-19, if strictly adhered to, one may be free from the pandemic. But not so with natural disasters, caused by deforestation and "de-green" of our environment. When we engage in planting more trees, as often as possible, climate change, a monster than COVID-19, can be controlled.

    The cartoon message: We must be our permanent, healthy and healthy environment far from diseases. We must defend hand in hand by working with thought and not with the heart. We must make decisions for the safety of the world and not for someone. Corona virus came to wake up all society at the end.

    In my view, climate change will be effect people more than Covid 19 . Why ? First, many of you don't agree with me, but look , Covid 19 came since two years ago, but climate change came since ten years ago, but Covid 19 affected greatly due to the speed of its impact and the speed of its spread, but climate change didn't effect the same as Covid 19 , because of its slow effectiveness, but it becomes more dangerous year after year and global warming is getting stronger , and notify before, therefore, a solution must be found as soon as possible before its dangerousness increases and before the destruction of the world due to climate changes .
    Do you agree with me?

Now let me tell you about the rest of the reasons. The first reason it is good and true , I agree with this reason, I will give it 10/7 .
    And the second reason , I don't agree with this reason, I will give it 10/4 .
    The third reason, it's so right , I agree with it , I will give it 10/8 .
    The fourth reason it's the best for me ,I give it full mark . The last one I will give it 10/9 , and I agree with it so much .

    In the first section, I see two wrestlers who both seem strong, the first wrestler is the "Earth" and the second is "Covid 19 " also I see that the earth fighting with all its might to defeat Covid 19 . In the second section, while the earth trying to defeat Covid 19 with all it has , there is a big old problem that is getting bigger and bigger and stronger than before, which is climate change. Yes , the third wrestler is climate change, and it's a problem that becomes more dangerous in a while and is difficult to defeat .
    Therefore, solutions should be found as soon as possible, and now I have solutions that will help a little bit in solving problems.
    The solutions: ( reduce factory emissions, reduce environmental pollutants, reduce nuclear testing, end fossil fuel supplies, plant trees ) .
    I think these solutions will help a little.

    In the first picture the character is ( the world and Corona virus )
    The world and corona virus are in a dangerous struggle in an attempt to remain the strongest and most resilient .the fist on the face may be decisive that the world is trying hard to win and represents the slap in the vaccinations by which scientists are trying to get rid of this epidemic
    The second picture
    (The world ,virus corona and climate changes)
    now the earth is not showing greats interest in its existance and its preoccupation in elimainting the corona virus that theatens its existence and I consider it that despite the small size of the virus compared to climate change it is more dangerous
    Step 2
    Green (to have agreen dreams )
    Means to be nuturing dreams.
    Build back greener (to rearranged thoughts means there are dreams that are shattered and destroyed and that thoughts need to be rearranged
    Step 3
    In my opinion the best way for building back greener is help nature
    We live in palestine specifically at gaza strip which suffers from ahigh population and is exposed to many wars that produce gases and toxis here after ,which makes the greatest challange to preserve the safety of your body from the danger of these materials and due to the shortage of space and rapid increase in population ,so nature must be helped by increasing the number of plants that purify the air and help produce oxygen ,as well as follow proper habits to get rid of waste and use it appopriatly to reduce water pollution and air and this is also to try to use enviromently friendly materials as much as possible
    Step 4
    To help the climate most ,and help the most people ,change how now we live the most important for my country and the easiest for aperson to do with out government support is help nature
    Because all the world either rich or poor countries can use it .
    Thats my opinion and I respect yours thoughts.

    While the Earth ignores climate change and its dangers, climate change is expanding on a large scale easily, there is nothing to stop it from its limits, every day a new problem appears due to climate change, but people don't show any interest or any interaction, climate change threatens the future and threatens the whole world without an exception, people not only ignore climate change, but they increase its intensity and intensity, and they don't stop using what makes it increase,why make people their ignorance dominate their thinking?

          I think that the reason is that the climate problem has increased a lot recently, and I think that if we had noticed it before this time, we would have been able to solve it successfully, but not everyone is interested in this. In my country, they seem to be lenient on this issue, so I think if all the people of the world united together in facing this problem, we will be able to solve it.

In fact, these celebrities are setting the example to the rest to follow and by showing their interest in environmental issues and trying their best to fight climate change they are raising the public’s awareness and inciting them to act and protect the planet. Besides, they are using their influence and power to push their governments and world policymakers to act immediately to overcome this environmental crisis.

        I think it's unfair to say that people aren't caring for the environment, in New Zealand the prime minister is setting the example for her country and other political leaders. I'm a follower of her on Instagram and her stories and posts are most of the time related to raising people's awareness about the emergency of taking Green actions. Our school is an Eco friendly school and we work with many other schools around the world about Climate change. There is a uk school who are our partner they received many members of the Parliament who are asking their government to stand with governments who fight global warming. At school we learned this saying "Be the change you want to see in the world" so caring starts with me and you and instead of blaming others we start taking actions ourselves and every action however small counts. I think this is the most effective strategy and it's a short term plan which has to be immediate.

    If the government give money to businesses that are environmentally friendly and that are not bad for the climate , I hope it will serve as a motivation to companies whose activities are not destroying the environment. I think people will stop buying from companies that are destroying the climate. In fact cocoa board in Ghana gives bonus to their staff yearly for promoting cocoa production in the country.

        concerning cocoa production, government is encouraging the cocoa farmers to produce more cocoa by giving incentives. For instance, farmers with new farms are weeded by people recruited by government for two years. Also, free seedlings and trees are given free of charges to farmers to grow in their various farms. It is helping a lot.

Also it will help people to get jobs and to help control climate change. Already, cocoa research institute of Ghana under cocoaboard of Ghana is working with farmers to plant more cocoa, cashew, coffee and sheanut butter trees. Such programs will go a long way to build back the environment greener.

It is the duty of the student to water the plant regularly to prevent it from dying. This has help to make green and comfortable compound. Now the dusty environment is gradually becoming green.

    We have struggled to survive for thousands of years, Yet the pollution we create has reached frightening proportions. This is largely due to the growth of industry and increased use of private vehicles. Since there's no other home for us, don't you think it's high time we go back greener and fix the damage?
    The deleterious effects of pollution are really alarming and scientists all over the world think that climate change will reach its highest levels by 2030 which means that more people around the world will die or lose their homes because of floods, droughts and other natural catastrophies.
    Fortunately, it is not too late to solve these problems. We have the money and technology that could help prepare for a better life for the new generations.
    One effective solution is to plant more trees. Then as the trees absorb harmful gases we can breathe a cleaner air and save thousands of people from health problems.
    Another good solution is to use public transport instead of cars. If we do this, we'll have less exhaust fumes in the air which means air pollution levels will be reduced.
    Thirdly, it is important to save energy and switch off all appliances. Also people should be encouraged to use renewable energy such as solar panels and electric cars.
    All in all, I strongly believe that saving our planet is something which involves us all. We must put pressure on those in power to take stricter measures and act immediately. Together we can make a difference.

    Step 4
    1. Which of these ways to "build back greener" will help the climate most?
    I think helping nature will help the climate most because more trees will be planted increasing the rainfall formation in an area therefore reducing desertification.
    2. Which of these ways to "build back greener" will help the most people?
    I think investing in green energy will help the most people because people will use renewable energy resources like solar power instead of using fossil fuels. This will increase their income because they will not have to buy coal regularly .
    3.Which of these ways to "build back greener" will change how we live the most?
    I think investing in green transport will change how we live the most because people will no longer have to stop at fuel stations to fuel because their cars will run on electricity and not fuel.
    4. Which of these ways to "build back greener" is the most important for my country?
    I think investing in green energy is the most important for my country. This is because my country(Uganda) mainly depends on agriculture and farming for its development. This means rain formation is very important to my country. Since trees are key to the formation of rainfall, they are very important to my country.
    5. Which of these ways to "build back greener" is the easiest for a person to do without government support?
    I think helping nature is the easiest for a person to do without government support because one can buy a plot of land and dedicate it to planting trees.

    Step1:
    We see in the first cartoon a big battle between the Corona virus and the planet, where the earth suffers from this deadly and dangerous virus that has killed many people, but despite the large number of patients, the Earth can beat this virus with the vaccine, which is the punch. As for the second cartoon, we see the same battle between the earth and the Corona virus, but a new character enters into this battle, and it is the sun that plays the role of climate change, which represents a danger to the earth more than the corona virus and could cause in the coming years a large number of deaths, but the earth and her people care more about the Corona virus than global warming, and this because the direct effect of the virus on humanity.

    In the first image, we watch our Earth and Covid-19 fight. Our planet is resisting the pandemic to protect us from this contagious disease but some humans do not attach any importance to it while others devote their lives day and night to saving our Earth which asks for the help of its inhabitants in order to save it from the epidemic and save it. be more aware by taking precautions to fight Covid-19 while assuming responsibility for it. Oh! No! Again? Another fighter enters the wrestling ring to fight our poor planet; it's climate change. Human activities such as the use of fossil fuels, logging have an increasing influence on the climate. This causes a lot of impact on drinking water, soil, biodiversity and the population. This is why humans must adapt to climate change: vegetate the city, protect coastal areas and cultivate appropriate species.

    Session keywords

    Now I summarise the keywords below in nine words;

    Green:

    When something is described as “green” it means that it is environmentally friendly (kind to the environment).

    For example, "To have a green thumb" means to be in harmony with the plants

    In my opinion, the following are the reasons why I am saying that help nature is the most important way of building back greener in my country.
    I agree that when we planted more trees it will improve our agriculture and bring fresh air into our compound. Okyehene of Akyem kingdom, is seriously fighting unnecessary cutting of trees in his kingdom. The Initiative, by the paramount chief is helping to save our forest. in fact, an attempt to mined bauxite was suspended in the area because the people felt it will destroy the game reserve in the Atiwa forest.

    Help nature is suitable for Ghana, because of the following reasons stated below. Firstly, government have in place task force protecting the forest as well as planting trees to replace the cut ones. Secondly, it is most common to see hunters burning the forest for game during dry season .It destroy the forest a lot. Now those bad people are educated about the dangers it cause to the environment. However, offenders are punished severely when caught. Thirdly farmers with the help of agricultural officer has been shown the proper way o applying chemicals in their farms so that it does not pollute water bodies.

    To share my ideas, helping nature solution is the best way to build back greener in my country. Helping nature in ways like afforestation, reducing pollution and protecting habitats are important ways of slowing down climate changes and reducing its effects. If we practice afforestation or if we plant more trees, our environment will become cool and also it will help to change the way it rains, it will also reduce the carbon dioxide in the air since carbon dioxide is use by plants for photosynthesis.
    Also, reducing pollution makes the air in the atmosphere less harmful for breathing and also reduces global warming, when there is less heat in the environment, it becomes fresh and grasses that were dried begins to grow

    *Step Four The next ways to rebuild a greener environment will help the climate more,* I believe that the investment uses fossil fuels, coal, crude oil and natural gas for renewable energy sources for example, solar and wind energy because renewable energy does not pollute the environment, while the text of coal and energy is not renewable . Fulfillment today is damaging the environment, the following ways to rebuild capabilities to transform our way of life. *I believe that investing in the green space is because people in my country Palestine get used to using simple tools and living life. It was simple until technology came, it changed a person's life. What I think is the most important method for your country. I think the natural help is by planting trees. Trees in two ways. *The first is a breathtaking view of nature and the year of human oxygen production. Ways to rebuild greener. It is easier for a person to do without support. Governmental I, * in my opinion, first, third and fifth, can make the environment greener without the government. There is no need for government assistance as long as a person is able to do so without knowing. All that I mentioned above is in my country .Thank you so much.

    Step3:
    Why should we build back greener?
    There are many reasons why we should build back greener but the major reason why we should build back greener is that,in my country,our economy is based on tourism.Many people travel from different places to see the beautiful sceneries in my country like our forests,but because climate change is destroying our forests,tourists do not come to our country and this is leading us into extreme poverty. So therefore,we have to build back greener.

    To share my idea, I think helping in nature by planting tree and helping to stop the pollution of the environment, will really help to build back greener in my country. Ghana is such a country which is blessed with good lands for planting foods. So if government and the individuals decides to help in nature, though they may face some challenges like the change of the climate, overgrazing and others. But this problems or these challenges can be solved by watering the trees during the dry season to prevent the trees from dying or drying. Also, they can make a fence around the planted young trees to prevent the trees from overgrazing by animals. This is the easiest, profitable and comfortable way to build back greener in my country. I think this program is less expensive compared to other solutions.

    The first reason: one hand does not clap. Many governments are committed and few people are. There must be cooperation between peoples and governments.
    For example: I am a citizen of the people, so why not contribute to planting trees in front of my house, as I ask the people of the neighborhood as well. Even if governments plant trees and create nature reserves, we must help them, so everyone should start with himself, as the environment is everyone's responsibility.


    The second reason: There are those who have the desire and many do not have the desire to cause them to be busy in the affairs of their lives.
    For example, in my country: a lot of people think about himself and his family and how to manage their daily sustenance, so that they do not think about caring for the environment, and this thing only annoys me. People have become their target what they eat and what they drink.


    The third reason: This is a valid reason
    Because of the increasing number of people and their preoccupation with life matters only and their distance from the main danger which is climate change


    The fourth reason: This thing is for sure. Basically, if we go back, we will find that Corona is a product of climate change, so we must search for the main problem and solve it from its roots, and if climate change gets worse, we will find what is worse than Corona.




    The fifth reason: These are the people who work in the interest of the planet and they always warn us (scholars)
    They have all our respect. We as people and governments must support and help them because the problem of global warming has really begun and its gap increased, especially with the technological advancements that we see and live in.
    Here we see the rise in water levels in the seas and oceans, the frequent earthquakes here and there, and the melting of ice.
    Hand in hand, shoulder beside a small, big shoulder to save our planet from the danger that threatens it for the sake of our children and future generations.



    The good reason: the second reason (a lot of people think we should rebuild and fix the problem)

    Because I see this in some countries, people have begun to pay attention to the problem and search for a cure for it, and I hope many countries will follow the approach and steps of these countries that deal with the problem.



    Worst reason: Third reason (People are too far from meeting and achieving their goals on climate change)
    Indeed, if the people care and take the matter seriously, we will start solving the problem because the people are the basis.

    And I think that climate change is preparing itself to enter the arena after defeating the virus, the world will face a more powerful opponent than the virus, which is climate change, and there will be no time for a break. We must prepare ourselves for this opponent.

    Step One:
    In the first caricature, we can see Earth fighting Covid-19. Earth looks stronger so this is a sign to not let Covid-19 take over our world since it will go away at some point

    In the second zoomed-out caricature, we see that Earth is still battling Covid-19. However, climate change is observing them; waiting till the fight ends so that climate change can step in. This means that climate change is much more powerful than the pandemic and will affect Earth terribly in case we turn a blind eye to climate change.

    Step Two:
    Green: Any positive action towards the environment
    Build back greener: acknowledging various ways of helping the environment.

    Step Three:
    1. Governments that care about climate change will enforce strict laws and forbid any activity that affects the environment on its citizens. So, people will care about this crisis and build back greener.
    2. “Building back greener” will reset the environment, let all the toxins vanish, providing humans a better habitat with better quality water and air.
    3. Countries that are way off from meeting their climate-change targets should be advised by other developed countries that have set climate-change targets since humanity depends on nature to survive (water, air, food) and if countries neglect climate change then we should be the change.
    4. The pandemic has affected Earth awfully but, vaccines are being created and percentages of positive tests are decreasing. However, there is no escape from climate change that will stay present until we act against it.
    5. Global warming affects wildlife, humans, and the environment. So, if it increases due to humans not cutting emissions by 2030, then we should be prepared for the worst since we would be endangering existence.

    Step Four:
    Helps the climate most: *Investing in green energy* Wind energy power is a sustainable and domestic source of energy. Geothermal energy and solar power can be used to generate electricity and heating sources. Also, solar panels diminish/limit greenhouse gas emissions. Overall, renewable energy is very effective for public health and is applicable.
    Helps the most people: *Supporting green businesses* will help many businesses by providing money to build back greener.

    Will change how we live the most: *Investing in green transport* Different ways of transport emit toxic gas then green transport will cut CO2 emissions.
    The most important for your country: * Supporting green research * In Lebanon, not all people believe/are educated on the various environmental changes so by supporting green research scientists will have more information and provide the Lebanese citizens with reasons to build back greener and take care of the environment.

    Easiest for a person to do without government support:
    *Helping nature* is very simple since any person can plant a tree in his/her garden or participate in such activities with other people.

    Step 1
    The picture is a wrestling arena and it contains two opponents, the earth (the world) and the Corona virus
    And we notice that the earth is about to eliminate its opponent, and this is a sign of optimism that leads it to the world from drawing this drawing, and this is very good !!
    Because we really need a positive emotional boost in this period
    I imagine that there is an internal dialogue going on in each of the two opponents
    For example, let us imagine that the earth says within it, "I will inevitably destroy you!" There have been many plagues and challenges, but I defeated them and I will defeat you like them for sure!
    As for the Corona virus, I imagine that it says within it: I was wrong. I thought that the world is now weak and I can overcome it, but unfortunately the world, the world is stronger than me and will end me, but I am going to the end of my struggle, in order to overcome it !!
    the message !!
    Whoever drew this picture wants to convey a very meaningful message entitled, hope and optimism
    I think that the message is that the earth is strong with its inhabitants and features and will overcome the Corona virus as it overcame previous epidemics and it will be stronger than it was and it will become more aware and aware

    Step 1
    second picture
    The picture is a wrestling arena and there are two opponents inside the arena, namely the earth and the Corona virus, and a third opponent outside the arena and bears the name of climate change
    We are witnessing that the earth is about to eradicate the Corona virus
    When I saw the picture, I made several judgments about it, which are:
    First: The earth will overcome the Corona virus, and I imagine that the earth is saying to its opponent, I will definitely kill you, as happened with your friends, previous epidemics because there is an opponent greater than you waiting for me. I must finish it before it explodes
    Earth is seeking help from me !!
    Second: I think that every adversary will kill someone who is less than him, that is, the earth will be destroyed by the Corona virus, and I fear that climate change will destroy the earth.
    Third; Climate change is a big problem that may explode at any moment and wipe out the Earth and the Corona virus
    Fourth: At the present time, the world is preoccupied with the Coronavirus crisis and has forgotten about climate change, which is increasing day by day
    When I saw the picture, I felt that the one who drew it was a bit pessimistic and he believ that climate change would wipe out the Earth
    The message conveyed by this photo differs from the message from its predecessors, and this indicates the great impact of climate change
    I think that the correct message is that the earth will eliminate Corona and this is what we hope, but then it will face a bigger problem, which is climate change, which has amplified over the years, and we must have the strength and sufficient methods to eliminate it because it is a serious and big global problem.

    Step 3
    The last question that says, "Scientists said if we did not take steps to reduce emissions by 2030, we would cause a risk in the amount of global warming."
    I chose yes and I will justify it
    The words of scientists are correct. If we, or in particular (the government), did not take steps to reduce emissions, their emissions would continue, and thus their impact on global warming would increase and the risks that threaten the earth would increase, such as melting ice, migrating birds, fires and droughts.
    The second reason is that we notice that the world has devoured its greed on industries and others after the closure period, in compensation for what the economy lost during the home quarantine period. This pushes them to work for a long time and operate generators for a long time, and consequently the emissions of harmful gases increase.
    And the scholars' message from this talk is to encourage the world to take serious steps towards the issue of climate change and also to increase the population's sense of the danger that threatens the earth and those on it and the great responsibility that falls on their shoulders
    In short, we made our mistakes and created that problem, and we must fix it

    Step 4
    I believe that investing in green energy is the most way to help the climate because it will greatly reduce the harmful emissions that come from factories and airplanes, which are the main source of climate change.
    And it will be a watershed point and everyone around the world will notice it, as it will change their lifestyle
    I will now justify the reason for not choosing the other options
    It is that if we made these options, we would certainly help the environment, but emissions will remain constant, for example when planting trees, supporting green research, or supporting green works, harmful emissions will remain constant and will not be stopped.
    As for the use of green transport, it will reduce these emissions, but not to the required and sufficient level to bring about a positive change in the climate

    It will also help them save money. Instead of buying fossil fuels almost every day (as we have here in Palestine to run generators and cars), he will take advantage of renewable energy sources and will not bother him much.
    It will also positively affect his mental health, so there will be no anxiety and tension towards the climate, and he will know that one of the causes that lead to death and negatively affect our health has disappeared and he will be reassured about that.
    And they will be encouraged to do these other environmental suggestions

    The coronavirus has hobbled economies all over the globe.
    Government at all levels focused on responding to the impacts of covid 19 pandemic while at the same time the climate crisis continues to pose significant challenges to our economies.
    States and regions are increasingly seizing this opportunity to recover better because with this destruction comes new opportunities and breakthroughs.
    Countries and societies in parts of the world have put in place some measures to curb this crisis. Some of these countries and societies are;
    1. Scotland in UK is delivering a green recovery that improves resilience to future crisis.
    2. New York in US is streamlining the process of introducing economical and environmentally friendly renewable energy projects.
    3. Nevada in US is reducing greenhouse gas and criterial pollutants emissions from vehicles.
    4. Massachusetts in US is pursuing its transition to low and zero carbon vehicles.
    5. Catalonia is expanding its carbon tax scheme, with money raised contribution to a climate change fund.
    6. Ghana is undertaking a national adaptation planning (NAP) process, in which it seeks to improve its resilience to climate change and it's impact over the next 60 years. It's process has been supported by NAP Global Network since 2018. By developing anticipated climate change scenarios, the country aims to reduce its vulnerability to it's climate change risks. Ghana's goal is to use post covid 19 investments and stimulus to create a more self-sufficient future.
    I'll urge all states and regions to follow in the footsteps of these leading examples though governments responding to the covid 19 pandemic are right now focused on survival, delivering health care and emergency support for shut-down businesses and people thrown out of work by lockdowns. These responses will have impacts on our environment.

    I think the most important way to building back greener in my country is to support green research on how to slow down climate change because after that they will come up with results and your suggestions reduce climate change and often
    It will be centered around the previous methods (cooperation with environment-friendly companies, investment in green energy, support for green businesses, and investment in green transportation), meaning that this method will push us to do the other ways.
    Also, there is another reason for choosing this method and that in Palestine some students go to study in universities outside the country in which there are specializations that suit their preferences and dreams, and they innovate in that, and with the help of these experts we can discover those Palestinian personalities who have specialized in the environmental field and get to know them
    And because they will be more knowledgeable and knowledgeable about the problems facing the Palestinian environment because they lived in it and faced those environmental problems, and also expert assistance may come with results and proposals that reduce climate change and also suit the conditions of the state and its level of development.
    And a third reason to choose this way
    is that tree planting abounds in Palestine, especially in the plains and mountains, in addition to that my country does not have sufficient development to invest in green transportation and does not also have self-sufficiency to get rid of fossil fuels and go to environmentally friendly sources of energy.

    In the first cartoon: Characters: Planet Earth and the Coronavirus ... I see in this picture that: Planet Earth and Corona virus are fighting and the planet is trying to eliminate the Corona virus ..... The message that the cartoon tries to convey to us is that the whole earth is trying to overcome a virus Corona and this may cause us problems




    In the second cartoon: Cartoon characters: Planet Earth, Corona virus, and climate change ..... I see in this picture that the earth and the Corona virus are fighting and climate change has grown, and this indicates that the earth has forgotten what is greater than Corona, which is climate change .... The message that the cartoon is trying to convey to us is that the globe is trying to eliminate the corona, and it has forgotten what is greater than the Corona virus because the Corona virus can find its medicine in a year or two, but climate change cannot be overcome in its package because it is getting bigger and bigger all that we have neglected


    And how can we overcome these two problems? First, Corona: We can overcome this virus by adhering to preventive orders, for example staying at home, not contacting people, not holding parties, not gathering and meetings, and so on .... Secondly, climate change by: stopping the use of means Transportation that pollutes the environment, for example cars and bicycles, we can instead use a large bus that transports everyone and does not contribute to environmental pollution ... We can also use renewable energy sources, for example: solar energy ... and we must also stop using fuel Fossil fossil fuels, for example, crude oil, natural gases, and coal .... This is how we contribute to rebuilding a greener country

    Among the methods that I think will help the majority of people and everyone can do it, without receiving support from the government:
    1- Planting trees
    2-Not using plastic
    3-Using natural resources
    4-Using public transportation always
    I do not think that there is one way that will reduce the pollution of the environment, every method has its role in reducing this pollution, The sources of pollution have been disputed in various ways, and we must cooperate in order to protect the environment.

    Step 4
    I think the way that will help a person dispense with government support is to help nature through planting trees
    The reason is that everyone can plant trees if the appropriate conditions are provided for him from the place of cultivation, fertile soil, suitable climate and water, and he will not need government assistance to do so.
    In addition to the fact that their cost is not very large, like other procedures that require sophisticated tools and machinery, which the average person cannot do, but rather are the tasks of the governments and environmental institutions responsible.
    And as all segments of society can participate in it, for example, school students can initiate tree planting initiatives in the school garden or the streets.

    Challenge:
    Questions:
    Which environmental problem has the most impact on livelihoods?
    What will happen if no one cares and tries to work on building back greener?
    What if all animals get extinct because of global warming? Will that risk humanity?
    Will climate change disappear completely or will it leave some scars?
    Will all countries achieve their climate change targets?
    Can environmental problems create viruses?
    Can we still go back to a normal clean Earth? Is it too late?
    How can we prevent animal extinction amid global warming?
    Do we want to build back greener for humans or the planet? Both?
    Are climate change and global warming related?
    Is the sun also causing global warming?
    Is global warming affecting the weather or climate?

    How would you “build back greener”?
    I would “build back greener” by switching everything I use into renewable energy sources. Since plastic can be replaced by sustainable materials, solar panels can be used instead of fossil fuels and fuel-powered vehicles. Invest in wind energy to generate electricity and mechanical power. Biomass energy will help the agriculture sector

    Suggested actions to build back greener:
    *Create awareness and educate people
    *Reduce, Reuse, Recycle plastic/carton
    * Purify wastewater and rainwater to use it for agricultural reasons
    * Use filters
    *Use public transport and electric vehicles
    * Reforestation after wildfires
    * Fine many factories that emit a larger quantity of fossil fuels
    *Reuse food waste by making it into compost then
    swap chemical fertilizers with compost
    * Fine individuals that dump waste in illegal ways
    * Relying on renewable energy sources for livelihoods (natural gas, nuclear power, biomass energy)
    * Have strict laws concerning different pollution (no waste on the beaches, use bikes on specific days)
    *Volunteer for beach/neighborhood/street/park cleanups
    *Plant more trees since they are a source of food and O2

        Humans around the world need to accept the newly enforced laws since the governments that will end up enforcing strict laws would be aware of the negative effects of the many environmental problems and will consider pollution and any toxic emission a crime. Governments that want to change for the best should tell their citizens that they will do an experiment for one month, no fossil fuels, no plastic bags, no fuel-powered vehicles nor illegal dumping in the ocean and burning waste, etc. Then when the public sees an improvement after that month and becomes educated, they will automatically adjust their lifestyles. In the end, it's for their own health since we want to diminish climate change and global warming as much as possible for livelihoods. However, if they don’t then anything that will result from pollution will trigger climate change and global warming that will risk humanity and future generations and that's when governments have to become even more strict and educate them as much as possible before it's too late.

    Step 4
    I think the best way to have a clear impact on climate change is to support green research
    And I would take, for example, to give money to experts on how to slow down climate change. When they do, they will eventually arrive at solutions that reduce climate change, and often those will center around the previous measures, meaning that this solution will push governments and people of the world to implement the other solutions
    It will also open the field of experts and innovators from different countries of the world to create or think and exchange experiences and information between them, and this will lead to improved relations between countries and may push them to undertake huge global projects that reduce climate change and help the environment, and a country may find suitable solutions to the problem of another country and solve it.

    In the first cartoon: Characters: Planet Earth and the Coronavirus ... I see in this picture that: Planet Earth and Corona virus are fighting and the planet is trying to eliminate the Corona virus ..... The message that the cartoon tries to convey to us is that the whole earth is trying to overcome a virus Corona and this may cause us problems




    In the second cartoon: Cartoon characters: Planet Earth, Corona virus, and climate change ..... I see in this picture that the earth and the Corona virus are fighting and climate change has grown, and this indicates that the earth has forgotten what is greater than Corona, which is climate change .... The message that the cartoon is trying to convey to us is that the globe is trying to eliminate the corona, and it has forgotten what is greater than the Corona virus because the Corona virus can find its medicine in a year or two, but climate change cannot be overcome in its package because it is getting bigger and bigger all that we have neglected

    Step 4
    the challenge !!
    The question that I chose for the challenge is if we use all the methods, what are the fastest ways to affect climate change ??
    I think green energy investment will have a faster impact on climate change? For example, if we are fully confronted from non-renewable energy sources to renewable energy sources, the harmful gas emissions will be met in a very large way and the climate will improve.
    For example, factories and airplanes will not emit smoke that is harmful to the environment. It contains harmful gases that increase global warming, and fossil fuels will not be used to operate generators.
    .
    In my view, I think this method is the fastest
    Let's imagine it together!
    If we use other methods such as supporting green businesses, planting trees, and supporting green research. This will definitely help the environment, but it won't stop the main cause of climate change, which is emissions, but it will take a lot of time.
    For example, when we ask experts to find solutions to this problem, we will wait until they give us solutions, then we will discuss those solutions, study them, know what is appropriate for the country, and then coordinate and plan to implement them. This takes a long time, and the more time, the greater the climate change.
    but Using green transportation will reduce emissions, but below the required level

    In Ghana here, human activities such as felling of trees for timber, charcoal burning, seasonal burning of grass for animals, over-grazing by farm animals and poor waste disposal are destroying the environment. By planting more tress, it will help regain the lost vegetation and helps prevent air pollution.
    When improper waste disposal is checked, it will also assist in tackling the water pollution, there should be public education on the protection of the forest and water bodies, this will help to build back greener.

    I think build back greener is the best choice to face climate change . Through Participation in volunteer campaigns to clean up and collect waste in forest areas and plant trees through agricultural cooperatives, recycling plastic, and organizing environmental campaigns, using social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to raise community awareness about environmental and climate issues. And implementing environmental initiatives to address climate change problems such as initiative "Palestine is free of plastic." And clean the coast from dirt. I believe that these activities instill in the citizen a sense of the necessity to preserve public facilities. This enhances the realization of the principle of cooperation, participation and community initiative. That is why I feel that change begins from within the human being and then moves outside to the earth This makes me wonder to what extent human behavior affects climate change?

    We can build back greener in so many ways. I have three major ways we can bring back greener, I call them the triple "R"
    One( refuse), we should reduce the quantity of refuse we produce. Refuse is a major reason we can't bring back greener because, if the refuse are too much disposing it would be a big problem reducing our refuse production would help us to bring back greener.
    The second " R" is recycling we should make sure we recycle our waste in a proper way.
    The third "R" is Reusable, we must choose Reusable things over single use things.

    My own question: What are the measures that contribute to slowing climate change ?? The method that could be chosen to rebuild green is: Invest in green transportation. Because green transportation reduces pollution, for example if we use transportation for electric cars, we will save a lot of fuel and reduce pollution caused by the use of fuel-powered vehicles, so life returns greener and society becomes more peaceful.

    The earth has been in conflict with the climate for a long time, because the climate affected the earth in a very large way, as it worked on shrinking glaciers, and the ice on lakes and rivers was broken early, and it did not stop on that, the formations or groups of many plants and animals changed, and trees became It is blooming quickly, and the sea level rises at a very rapid rate, but it causes heavy economic losses, and also global warming caused by climate change may play a role in the transmission of the new Corona virus, and the earth is still fighting the climate in our present time, and I direct my message to the world in general and to In Palestine in particular, we can only try to find appropriate solutions to solve the problem of climate change, such as planting trees in a large scale, encouraging the use of renewable energy in transportation and ending subsidies for fossil fuels, and from this point of view I wonder where the role of the APEC Petroleum Corporation in protecting the environment from pollution?
    Where is the role of human rights institutions in protecting the right to life ?! Suggest solutions that will help us and help you to protect our country from the negative impacts of the climate.

    Step 1.
    Discover how the world can heal and make the environment greener? The cartoon is one: it contains (the globe - and the new Covid 19), after the arrival of Covid 19 on the world in late 2019, the world tried to confront and challenge the virus, the picture shows that it is a (wrestling) arena area that drops the virus and kneels on his knee, but he raises his hands again and punches the world ( The picture message to us is that the world is busy facing the virus and that it is also capable and ready to destroy any sudden infection that bears insistence and determination. Carton 2: It contains (the globe, Covid 19, climate change), which is happening, as we said previously, the world faces the Corona virus that is inside the ring, and the climate change that is outside the ring indicates that it is not one of the world's interests, but as you can see it puts pressure on the rope, Indicates severe pressure on him and the possibility of an explosion at any moment and entering the ring violently. His message is that if the world does not face climate change in relation to the virus that will end after a period of time, this period can be the cause of the increase in bad climate change, it may cross its face On its effect on animals, I am not sure of these expressions, you can tell me in the comments that it is yes or no.
    Step 2
    The word green can be summarized in: plants, fertility, grace, abundant goodness and blessing, and also it is a sign of serenity, psychological and heart. As for rebuilding greener: constructive decisions, helping others, rebuilding, building and benefiting the environment and climate
    Step 3:
    Regarding any of the previous methods of "rebuilding in a green way" will help most people, which is to support green businesses, because people will help these institutions and companies to make the environment more beautiful. And cleaner. Either of the ways that will change our lives, which is: investing in green transport, because it will change the tools and transportation that people use every day and will use things that are more sophisticated and safer for the environment. Which does not harm the climate, perhaps large quantities of agriculture will be beneficial, but Gaza is small and does not have this sufficient space. Either one of the easiest ways for a person to dispense with government uncle is: There is nothing but help for the environment and nature by planting trees, reducing pollution and protecting habitats. But if I can only choose one method: invest in green transportation, why ?? Because if we use electric cars, they will reduce the use of oil and fuel and thus reduce air pollution, and also in ships, water pollution will reduce, water that irrigates the soil and thus reduces soil pollution. As for investing in green energy, stopping the use of fuel and natural gas, I do not think so because people cannot dispense with natural gas in their lives. If it is for cooking or heating water and even oil, if they manufacture electric cars, some people will not be able to buy them. As for the way most people are able to cultivate is to help the environment, even by a small amount. You can plant vials of plants and roses on their windows and plant trees if they have land. In conclusion, I hope people will take these things seriously 🌸.

    Right now, our planet is going through a tough time.
    Even when a lot of people are trying their best, it's just not enough.
    Caring about our future begins with trying to change it for the better.
    Otherwise, we're going to have to face the consequences.
    Very different ways to help us build back what we started .
    Every one of them requires sacrifices that we unfortunately can't escape from.
    Remembering our role in creating the change we want to see is essential for all of us in order to make an impact.
    Indeed, we need not forget that all big journeys begin with small steps .
    Never lose hope, for even though some think that this situation cannot be helped, it's never too late to speak up about what's right and change the world for the better.
    Granted, it won't be easy and it won't be fast but good things require patience and passion and that's how they last.

        First of all we need to produce more food on less lands: we need to produce food where it's most likely to thrive , which will use less water and less land.
        The second way is by eliminating fishing: we need to refine fishing methods to only take what the fish population can tolerate , so our oceans can be more abundant and healthier in the future.
        The third step is by increasing clean energy: we need to shift 85 percent of the world's energy supply to non-fossil fuel sources and invest in strategies like reforestation that capture carbon dioxide.

        First, people can provide their buildings with green energy powers ( each with the best in their geographical region) that not only can be described as green but it is also economically better.
        Second, Stop trees cutting that leads to great loss of animals . Instead promoting the idea of natural reserves.
        Third. Set some rules that obligate woodcutter to plant a seedling for each tree they have to cut.
        Fourth, Encourage the innovation ideas like roof gardening, hydroponics, using original fertilizer and plant hybridization for better quality crops.
        Finally, Offer farmers and country people great attention like stars because really they deserve that.

    In Ghana , the best way we can build back greener is by investing in green energy.
    Green Energy is any energy type that is generated from natural resources such as sunlight, wind or water. In Ghana I suggest we stop using fossil fuels such as natural gas and crude oil and start using renewable energy resources such as the solar panel . We all know the solar panel get's it's heat from the sun in order to generate power for mankind . If we stop using the fossil fuels , pollution's is going to decrease because the fossil fuels release carbon monoxide into the atmosphere which causes harm to us as human beings. For this I think we should stop using fossil fuels in Ghana and start using the renewable resources to help build a better back greener.

    _ The virus must be fought and eliminated so that we do not face climate change with the virus , if that happens, perhaps humanity will witness the worst war in history and may not be able to survive it, so the world must rise and find a solution so that it is not defeated in this battle

    Step 3
    _ It is good for people to think so, this is a big step towards rebuilding greener, and if people want it then let them do it, and this is a good reason to rebuild in a greener way, it is good for people to live in a green environment that makes them feel comfortable, and therefore you will not experience The country has problems achieving their climate goals, and perhaps this will limit climate change.
    _ As for the people, they do not have an environmental awareness. Even if the government cared, the people would not care, because they lived on a certain idea and they were convinced of it, and if they had an idea about the importance of the environment, they would have done the best for it, but the world does not have sufficient awareness of the importance The environment and its preservation, and even if the state launches awareness campaigns, people will not care. They will continue to maintain their bad habits and behaviors. It is not easy to leave a trait we are accustomed to.
    Yes, because climate change poses a great danger to states and their citizens, but for countries to achieve their goals, they must carry out awareness campaigns, but awareness campaigns will contribute little to helping the state, because not everyone cares about rebuilding greener, so few are interested in this. Command. .
    _ Yes, people's souls are not something that we can ignore, and for me scientists and experts must restore a greener life to protect people's lives, as it is one of the most important reasons why we strive to limit climate change
    _ Is there a more important reason than this ?!
    If we take effective action against climate change, this is how we will save lives, we will achieve the goals related to climate, we will build a green environment free of pollution, and people will increase awareness of the importance of the environment and its preservation.

    _ “Helping nature” I, as a citizen, can plant trees in my garden and make the scenery beautiful in which I feel comfortable, and help purify the air that I breathe, thus benefiting me and the world. If we all contribute to planting a tree, we will make a big difference and contribute massively to rebuilding greener
    _ In my opinion, there is no way that can extend life further, we do not know what will face us in the future, perhaps there are crises waiting for us, or factors that will change the course of our lives, and if there is a way that will be temporary and we will not be able to continue with it, I do not think there is a way Life prolongs, but there is a way to help us enjoy life
    _ "Investing in green energy" This method will have a great benefit for my country. It will raise the economy, create an environment free of pollution and gas emissions from factories, and thus reduce people with respiratory diseases, and limit climate change and its effects. And increasing the individual's awareness of the importance of the environment and its preservation and the seriousness of the things that depend on it, believing that it is the best and not.
    _ "Helping the environment" where the citizen does not need the state to plant trees or when he depends on solar energy instead of using fuel to generate electricity, but I cannot say that this method is really the easiest for a person, like each of us has his own circumstances, his own beliefs, and his vision He differs from us in his beliefs about the best

    "building back greener" means changing the habits, ways and means of life that people have adopted for many centuries, and the person to start a new beginning on his personal level and his personal life needs a long time to start, so do you think it is that easy? It's easy to talk about building back greener methods, but applying it to real life is very hard.

    In my exprssion, green is anything friendly to the environment that helps us to beautify our environment. We can't do anything without doing research. I think the most important way of building back our greener is to support green research by investing in experts and scientific facilities in order to know when and where to plant trees and the kind of plant to grow in a particular soil. The expects may be able to find a nice way of reducing air pollution, water pollution as well as improve seed for planting to quickly absorb the carbondioxide.

    Ways we can build back greener are, we can stop using natural gasses. Natural gas (also called fossil gas; sometimes just gas) is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas mixture consisting primarily of methane, but commonly including varying amounts of other higher alkanes, and sometimes a small percentage of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, hydrogen sulfide, or helium. It is formed when layers of decomposing plant and animal matter are exposed to intense heat and pressure under the surface of the Earth over millions of years. The energy that the plants originally obtained from the sun is stored in the form of chemical bonds in the gas. Natural gas is a fossil fuel. Here is the link:
    https://en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Natural_gas
    Building back the greenery, small ways that even you could do are,
    1. Reduce, reuse and recycle, cut down on the on the the amount of plastic that you throw away
    2. Volunteer for cleanups in your local area
    3. Educate yourself in what is good and bad
    4. Shop wisely
    And last of all if you have a garden, plant a tree

    I am trustworthy_editor and what I can say is that climate change has more negative effect on my country Ghana,and this is one of the effect I will likely to explain.

    In Ghana there are a lot of waste in the country that are need to be recycled but because of inadequate technologies or machineries such as RTOs machines that uses heat to destroy waste are not available in the country it makes it difficult to recycle the waste .Sometimes these waste are being release into water bodies which pollute water bodies and destroy plants in water and kill a lot of living organism living in water

    Materials like lorry Tues,plastic waste and waste from factories are being burnt into the atmosphere,it increase the amount of carbon mono oxide in the atmosphere which if we don't put a stop to this activity,it can led to acid rains in some regions that may come in the form of rain,snow,fog,hail or even dust that will affect the soil:a vid rain leaches aluminium from the soil.That aluminium maybe harmful to plants as well as animals.Acid rains also remove minerals and nutrients from the soil that trees need to grow..... The trees are then less able to absorb sunlight which makes them weak and less able to withstand in the dry season
    So this is one negative effect ,of no proper handling of waste contribute to climate change.

    How we can " build back greener "
    " If government care about the environment and take care of the climate , then people may do that as well " , I rate it 10 /10 , because my opinion is that government are the ones who issue decision and orders in society and thus government can issue decision to care for the environment and take care of the climate , as the inhabitants of societies a bide by these orders , so the problem of climate change is often solved over a period of time.
    " Many people think we should rebuild and fix the problem " , I rate this 8/10 , I agree with the opinion because it is necessary to pay attention to the problem of climate change resulting from many causes , the most important of which are industrial pollution , chemical and nuclear industries and industrial evaporation . Therefore , Iaws must be put in place that renew the mechanisms of nuclear production in the world and reduce the level of global warming.
    " People are far from meeting and achieving their goals on climate change " , I rate it 4/10 , because people care about the corona pandemic and are not interested in the problem of climate change , so the harm and severity of climate change increases around the world.
    " Climate change will affect people from the corona pandemic " , Climate change does not affect the corona pandemic because corona is a biologically manufactured virus that transmits between people in several different ways and climate change has nothing to do with it.
    " Scientists say we have not taken big steps to stop this problem from resurging by 2030 as we will be exposed to a large amount of global warming " , I rate it 8/10 , Because scientists know very well what steps they have done in order to reduce global emissions and reduce global warming 2030 , and according to their belief , these are not suffcient.





    And i think that the worst reason is that " climate change will affect people from the corona pandemic " because corona pandemic is a virus that moves between people by different ways and has nothing to do with climate chandes.

    Which of these ways to build back greener will change how we live the most?
    To express this I think that investing in green energy will change how we live most because in Ghana people use fossil fuels for their domestic use but also these pollute the environment, so we must stop using non renewable energy sources such as fossil fuel, nuclear energy etc and concentrate on renewable energy.

    Just as we have seen with the race for a coronavirus vaccine when scientists came together , resource is made available and the determination is there,it is possible to make incredible progress very quickly.when we burn oil,coal and gas,we do not just meet our energy need-we drive the current global warming crisis as well.Fossil fuel produce large quantities of carbon dioxide when burned. Carbon emissions trap heat in the atmosphere and lead to climate change.

    Step 1
    In the first cartoon, we note that the Earth and Covid 19 are in a struggle, both of them are trying to succeed and overcome the other because they both have sufficient power to destroy, either Covid 19 destroys the earth through its continuous proliferation and stability in the conflict, or the whole Earth, Covid 19, by protecting itself from this virus and its strength and stability
    So survival will be for the strongest who protect himself and remain steadfast .
    Likewise, in the second cartoon, the Earth began in a new conflict with climate change along with the widespread penetration and spread of the Corona virus in it, so if climate change continues in this terrifying way, it will really destroy the Earth with Covid 19 because both of them are fighting the planet, if we remain standing idly, we do not present to our world It can be saved from destruction and continue to search for feasible solutions and apply them in every place that we will not be able to protect and we will all perish.

    I'm from Ghana, one of the countries that have been affected by climate change and global warming such as high temperature and increase in diseases like cerebro-spinal meningitis and from the options listed above, invest in green energy and help nature arethe most important options for the country.
    Invest in green energy by using renewable energy like solar energy, wind power and hydro-electric power which are environmentally friendly and do not release harmful gases such as carbon monoxide into the atmosphere instead of fossil fuels which releases these harmful gases. This is going to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide that is being released into the atmosphere.
    The main causes of global warming are air pollution and felling down of trees for human settlement, coal making and timber. Therefore, helping nature by planting trees and avoiding afforestation is going to help reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (released into the atmosphere by animals through respiration) and other harmful gases in the atmosphere through photosynthesis. Also will help to reverse back heat from the sun trapped by heat trapping gases like mathane and water vapour back to space and in same process protecting the natural habitats of species.
    I believe that these are the most important options for the country to help build back greener and making the atmosphere and environment more peaceful and healthier to live.

    In my country Uganda, the following are some of the measures that are put in place to protect the environment and I believe that they will contribute to building back greener.
    -Protection of game reserves for example Kidepo National park, Bwindi National Park among others.
    -Putting in place laws that protect the environment, for example, the National Environment Act 1995.
    -Establishing environment protection institutions such as the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) and National Forestry Authority (NFA).
    However, the biggest problem about the laws and institutions is poor implementation. I think if the government puts in place measures such as arresting and prosecuting all those that break environmental laws without compromise, then we shall have a greener Uganda.

    To the best of my knowledge, the government must support green businesses to build back greener. The government must give money to businesses that are environmentally friendly and that are not bad for the climate. When money is given to businesses that are friendly to the environment, it will encourage the companies polluting the air to reduce damage instantly. It will also motivate the businesses that are friendly to the environment to keep it up .The government must also donate tools that are not harmful to the environment, to those environmentally friendly businesses. Also, when green businesses are supported in Ghana, it will help to build back the nation's agriculture, vegetation and the environment as a whole. On the contrary, businesses polluting and destroying the environment should be made to pay more taxes, so that it will serve as a disincentive to other bad companies. The monies or taxes collected from businesses spoiling the environment, should be use in improving and solving the several environmental problems facing Ghana.

    If government look after the environment and cares for the climate the public might too. I agree with this statement because, when the COVID-19 hits Ghana the government made rules that, some of the cities have to be locked down. Some of the cities were Accra and Kumasi, and some companies were also shut down. Because the government was thinking that if they work the virus will spread. Wearing face masks in public and washing of hands were part of the rules one needs to observe. People knew that if they obey the rules they would be punished, and because they don't want to be punished they obeyed the rules. So I think if the government it upon themselves to care for the climate change and make rules for it, people will obey it as they obeyed the rules and regulations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. In conclusion, I think the leadership by example will be effective in tackling the climate change.

    The conflict between Earth and climate change has been there for several years, and governments have been trying to work this issue out but in vain. After the pandemic has emerged, the efforts exerted to stop climate change have redirected towards fighting the virus. I can see how Earth is fighting this pandemic and managing to win over it. However, I can also see climate change with its massive impact on Earth. I think governments need to reapproach the problem of climate change now more than ever. I do believe this time is a chance for the people to find a globe that is evergreen. I also wonder why not thinking about building greener, since the virus has influenced many people to change for the best. I also wonder how can building back greener could improve people’s sustainability of resources around the world. The pandemic helped reduce carbo emission from factories using fossil fuels, for instance. Furthermore, people are fans of electric cars like Tesla cars for they are efficient and environment friendly. The world is heading to a fresh start where we use the resources of our Earth wisely. Nevertheless, the grave danger is awaiting like the cartoon. As soon as we are done with the virus. We need a break. We need to sip some water, start fresh and fight the final round against climate change.

    In Uganda, we have a common slogan in one of the most spoken local languages (Luganda).The slogan goes "Tusaba Kavumenti Etuyambe" which is loosely translated as "We request government to help us".
    Looking at the above statement, one would think that the government is responsible for everything in the country. To me i think this is absolutely wrong. The goverment can not solve all our problems if we dont start by ourselves.Much as we can rely on government for social services like health and education, we need to start small projects such as raising tree seedlings to earn a living and at the same time contribute to bringing back greener.
    The mentality of depending on government has created more destruction on the environment.

    This cartoon is a brief summary for what is happening around us nowadays . The earth is in a constant struggle to defend itself and those who live on it . Here, the Earth is in a fierce confrontation with Corona Virus in the presence of the Climate Change . The clear message here is that climate change is responsible for the suffering of the earth , whatever the cause is . So, we as individuals and as a government must take the necessary procedures to confront it. For example , we as students must go towards green schools . We should activate the role of the Student Parliment at schools . Where is the role of the youth leaders confrences in the issue of the climate change ??? There must be a stand .

    There is a violent conflict between the earth and the people on it and corona virus but it seems that the land and those on it face corona with various means . Climate change and preparedness was prepared to enter the wrestling arena but it will only happen if Earth defeats the corona virus Those who live on earth will not allow the loss of the earth and the victory of the virus we will tetur all of us to a beautiful green land , and we will reduce the use of transportation that is harmful to the environment and planting tress, we will all pledge to be one hand in attacking the virus with each other.

    The message the image expresses is confronting covid_19 with all their power Do not underestimate him and take all necessary measures to defeat him .
    Wheel in the second cartoon .
    I see the Earth planet a long with covid_19 and another enemy whitch is climate changes the Earth planet is in another confrontation with covid_19 and which is not the only opponent there as climate change is ready for confrontation at any time.
    The message the image expresses is that.
    The threat of covid _19 is no less important, but rather bigger ,as it poses a greater .
    The threat of climate change is more dangers than the theatre of covid_19 as it is bosses a great to the planet and environment like or drought floods or global warming and more .all this affects the the epidemic.
    We have to face the virus and the threat of climate change to keep our planet green, healthy and safe .

    3
    There are ways that will change our way of life, which is to tighten control over pollution emissions and nuclear sources that are emitted from power plants , and must be put in place to reduce these emissions.
    4
    There are more important ways for our country, including switching to sdar cave, restricting the construction of power plants that cause air pollution, and preventing the building of factories near residential areas.
    5
    There are easier ways to be individual with out government support, such as planting trees and reducing the use of paper and plastic.

    I think we all know the meaning of the meaning of anything green but I would like to explain it and how we can build back Greener
    Green means anything that is environmentally friendly. And as we all have seen the pictures above.
    Point 1 . If we support green research;. By giving money to experts to help them find out how to slow climate change. 2. And also help nature;. By planting more trees to reduce pollution or protect habitats. 3. Invest in green energy; Stop using fossil fuels ( coal, crude oil and nature gas ) and use renewable energy sources. Sources like solar power or wind power. As we can all see the pictures above. Picture 1. The earth is fighting against the covid-19 so we should all help. Picture 2. The earth is still fighting the pandemic forgetting about climate change and how it can have an effect on us
    I would like to end here

    Hello
    I see human activities that destabilize the Earth's climate itself as a direct contribution to ill health and the main cause of climate change as people are far from each other in achieving their goals regarding climate change, so it is up to them, as I see countries in various parts of the world struggling to take measures to protect lives From climate change, but the volume of support is still insufficient, especially in non-developing and least developed countries. I assure, from my point of view, that people should be part of the solution to the problem of climate change and find solutions for today and tomorrow and not lose sight of the impact on it because it is necessary to participate in solving the problem of its effects, which will reflect negatively on People, however, people possess a wealth of knowledge of issues related to climate change adaptation.

    I think that all the ways will help the climate equally, they all have a positive impact on the people. The one with greener transport will change people's lives the most as not only will it cost lots of money, but it might be trickier for people to adjust to. They are all equally important for our country as climate change is such a pending , negative topic that anything we can do is important. "Help nature" is the easiest way to stop climate change as it can start in any place with some earth and access to sunlight. My question is, "What is the government actually doing to help with climate change?" and ," Will any rules be put in place to make a difference?"

    Warmhearted_context here.
    I think the best way to build back greener in my country, Nigeria, is by investing in green energy.
    We rely too much on fossil fuels instead of green energy. For example, in the absence of electric cookers, we use firewood for several purposes. This is the major cause of deforestation in our country.
    We have also been over reliant on crude oil for many years and its depletion has caused a recession in our economy.
    More so, we focus more on the use of unrenewable energy unconsiously because we forget that these resources will not last forever.
    Investing more in green energy is very important in Nigeria because it would improve our worsening economy because we would focus more on agriculture in a bid to "Go Green."
    And much more importantly, I believe it would improve our climatic conditions and put a pause in the sudden desertification of the North due to felling of trees for several purposes and improper reforestation methods.

    Hey, in my opinion i feel the people can bring back greener in my country is by changing our main energy sources to solar or maybe through the wind, to easily generate energy for people to use.There are many ways to prevent air pollution which i feel my country could adopt is by reducing fuel fossils, like turnin off lights when not in use, regulating the use of vehicles, sometimes people could just walk instead of using vehicles or buying cars that have good fuel efficiency like electric cars, developing vehicles that do not need fuel to function. In summary, we can build back greener by getting alternative energy sources to reduce pollution. All nationa must also come together to find solutions on how to reduce green house gases.

    Hi everyone here are some ways to build back greener but first I would to explain the meaning of GREEN.It is something that is environmentally friendly(kind to the environment.So here are the ways to build back greener.
    1
    Afforestation: by planting more trees we can help reduce climate change.
    2
    Support green research:if we give money to help experts find out how to slow climate change because if we do that the experts will know the causes of climate change and that will help control it.
    3
    Walking or using bikes instead of always having your parents drive you can also help to slow climate change.
    4
    Reducing air pollution by burning less,especially petroleum products and vegetation for farming can also help build back greener.
    So I would like to advice all of us to help build back greener by following all these.
    I would like to end here.

    Pause with ourselves
    As long as there are money and power forces that are in control, much of the climate change issue will remain unresolved because companies, factories, and influential people will not focus on the environment, so profit is what matters.
    But a candle lit in the dark is better than nothing.
    Maybe our little group is the nucleus of something great.
    An idea that grows in our small minds and is nurtured with some interest in the world, and in our turn we pass it on to those around us from here, we will make something even simple that may change the world later.
    I believe that we are all here, through this cycle, interested in something that we did not pay attention to.
    And here we are until we are looking for solutions, and perhaps in the near future, we will be the sponsors of the green research.
    Much appreciation and respect for this project, for which we are proud that we are one of its members and whose sponsors you are.
    Let's be the nucleus of build back greener .

    I think the best way to build back greener is through nature.
    When we plant trees and plants, there is more greenery. Firstly, trees help in climate change. When we exhale carbon dioxide, plants and trees recycle it and create oxygen for us to breathe in again. Without plants, carbon dioxide will just add to the greenhouse gases increasing climate change. Secondly, trees are vital for wild life to survive. Trees give animals shelter and food. As well as that, forests provide natural filtration. This means trees help in purifying water so we can drink safe water. Lastly, trees can hold vast amounts of water that would otherwise stream down hills and surge along rivers into towns. In conclusion, forests, trees, plants and greenery are necessary for this world and cutting them down won't do us any good. We have to plant more trees and plants to build back greener.

    In my opinion, Corona virus can be by building back greener, for example we plant green trees because they are environmentally friendly and work to soften the atmosphere.
    Supporting experts to create newand beautiful ideas to protect the environment, and in this way we can defeat Corona virus.

    The characters in picture 2 represent earth , covid_19 and global warming and believe that this image shows the struggle facing the earth in solving its biggest problems and intellectual dispersion that clarifies which problems are the most important to put all attention on and I believe that the two problems will leave a great harmful impact on human society .
    With regard to the covid_19 pandemics association with the problem of the global warming . I think that there is a link . Home quarantine helped reduce the percentage of carbon dioxide in the air .
    I have suggested many solutions .I hope that you will share with me your views.
    First: many trees must be planted and sufficient agricultural areas should be provided there has become a shrinkage in cultural areas due to the increase in population numbers around the world but I think that there is a solution to this problem or is to build skyscrapers that will help in providing adequate agricultural areas.
    Second: we all know the extent of technological and cultural development that we have reached today in transportation industry so I think that using electricity and clean energy is better than using the coal and there was one problem facing us or the High cost of electric transportation.
    Third :I think some development countries use the subway as means of transportation and I think that this is a wonderful thing.
    Forth :I think that use of ferries and ships is also good thing in some countries such as Turkey which use ferries that link the Asian side with the European side which are sometimes used in event of traffic jam and this is also wonderful.
    Fifthly :fires also among the causes that led to global warming. So we must feel responsible and pay attention always because any mistake can lead to serious consequences either human or as we said natural or climatic.
    Last but not least : Factories are among the biggest causes of global warming and factories have become dependent on machinery and factories that work with man power have become in danger there will be percentage even if it is small you will not be able to bring your daily food and I think that there is nothing more beautiful than making your livelihood from the work for your hand.

    step 3
    The third step I will explain my answers and the reasons for my answer to the proposed questions 1-If governments look after the environment and care for the climate then the public might too. (yes) why ???? Because every person, if he finds his surroundings or country interested in the climate, uses all means to help the climate, the feeling of a strong desire to influence the climate will grow within him
    Also, it will take care of the climate. If the government tries to raise awareness of climate change risks widely, it will attract a huge demand for climate assistance from the public. 2-Lots of people think we should "build back greener". (yes) why ????
    Because people have begun to feel the dangers of climate change greatly, especially after sitting at home after the curfew due to Corona, they have great knowledge about climate change and its effects on people and nature in the future and the current time and what will happen if they do not care about it or if the effects of climate change worsen 3- Countries are "way off" meeting their climate-change targets. (yes) why ?????? If we look at the matter from two different perspectives, the first is that developed countries are trying with all their efforts to control climate change, but if we look at the matter from another perspective, we find that there is a large proportion of developing countries. . . . . Which is still far from achieving its climate change goals. It does not have the ability to initiate measures to help the climate and all its concern, which is to help its population survive, how close would the world be to achieving its goals of mitigating climate risks if there were such a proportion of countries that do not have the capacity to help
    4- Climate change will affect more people than the pandemic has. (yes) why ???????????? It is true that the epidemic affected people, except that it had an impact on the elderly and people with diseases much more than the rest of the people, while climate change may devastate the world and affect all people around the world, frost waves may come. Destruction of crops, drought or raised temperatures. Global and melting ice due to heat and so on, and we see that the climate effect affects the whole world at the same time and one sequence between Corona is true that it affects people in the whole world, but the effect of Corona will be less severe than the impact of climate change 5-Scientists say that if we don't take big steps to cut emissions by 2030, we could cause a dangerous amount of global warming. (yes ) why ???? Because if we stay like this we will increase air pollution and increase the emission of greenhouse gases, and this will increase the temperature of the earth and global warming very significantly, so we must help the climate quickly to avoid the catastrophe that might happen if the climate changes the world.

    step 4 1-In my opinion, the way to invest in green energy is the reason, because we depend in all areas of our lives on fossil fuels, natural gas and crude oil, directly or indirectly, as means of transportation, factories, or even methods of generating electricity. And others, if we depend on green renewable energy in all aspects of our lives, such as the use of electric cars. And use nitrogen gas in cars instead of oil, because nitrogen if it burns does not release harmful gases, We will also benefit from green energy in electricity generation methods. In electricity generation methods, it depends on solar energy, wind energy, water energy, etc. Therefore, in my opinion, it is the one that is considered more influential on our lives and because it affects all areas

    1_ Invest in Green Energy
    Because it provides a cleaner environment and thus reduces climate problems, and perhaps one of the most important advantages of harnessing the sun to become one of the important energy sources, is that it is considered energy that does not cause any pollution to the environment, except in very low degrees, perhaps. Solar energy is considered energy that is not polluting the environment and does not add more of those impurities that are actually present in the atmosphere, as a result of other pollutants, so solar energy is considered pure energy.
    2- Invest in Green Transport, Because it reduces the release of radiation and thus mitigates the catastrophic consequences of the climate and because it does not emit harmful gases. And there are governments of many countries encouraging their citizens to switch to electric cars, as on the one hand they help to achieve the goals of countries to reduce gas emissions as well as reduce pollution rates in cities. I answered that it is for the majority of people despite these advantages because it is not the ideal solution, When a car depends on electricity from burning fossil fuels, it does not add much to climate protection efforts. At the same time, the electric car needs more energy than conventional cars, which is due to the complex battery of the car. The disposal of these batteries afterwards is a burden on the environment.Although no harmful gases are emitted from the electric car while it is traveling on the road, these gases are emitted from the reactors that generate the electricity needed to operate the car.
    Also, the thing is very important .. Support the green research This is the help of both People and the environment, because it provides alternatives for people to use everything possible that destroys climates and at the same time slows down the process of climactic destruction.

    3 , 4 I think that the way that will change our lives and it is more important to my country is to use natural and renewable energy sources such as solar energy. Perhaps one of the most important advantages of having the sun to become one of the important energy sources is that it is considered energy that does not cause any pollution to the environment, except in very low degrees perhaps. Solar energy is considered energy that is not polluting the environment and does not add more of those impurities that are actually present in the atmosphere, as a result of other pollutants, so solar energy is pure, clean and low-cost energy and with the presence of the sun in abundance in my country, it is used well in Gaza, where I began to notice in The recent period that there are many people use it in their homes and stores.

    5- After I studied several topics about trees and their impact on climate, I can say:The tree has a great role in environmental aspects, as the lack of its number in any region leads to an imbalance in the ecological balance in that region. Although each tree alone may not be considered beneficial to the environment in general, but the collection of these trees forms a microclimate that affects the surrounding environment positively. The role that the tree plays in protecting the environment is great Reducing pollution as plants increase the oxygen in the atmosphere, which is the beginning of the food chain for all living organisms through the process of photosynthesis and the absorption of carbon dioxide. _ The average tree absorbs daily 107 kg of carbon dioxide and produces 140 liters of oxygen daily, and it is necessary to plant 7 trees to remove the polluting effects of one car in addition to the benefits of trees in absorbing carbon dioxide It also works to reduce the velocity of the air loaded with dust, which leads to the deposition of airborne pollutants. A mature tree can absorb up to 150 kilograms of carbon dioxide annually. As a result, trees play an important role in climate change mitigation. Trees can improve air quality, especially in cities with high pollution levels, to make them healthier places to live.

    I think for my country planting trees and reducing pollution will help. Protecting nature by stopping people from dropping waste in waters, cutting down trees near rivers and streams, also advicing people to plant at least a tree and once you fall a tree you should plant 10more. By doing these the environment bcus green again animals and vegetations live well. Our water ways have been polluted environment also and the soil has been expose. So for me planting trees and reducing pollution helping environment will help. Avoid burning of gas and use of engines that produces high carbon monoxide and other harmful gases

    Which of these ways to build back greener is the most important for your country?
    My answer will be investing in green transport and also investing in green energy. Investing in green transport because the rate in which people in Ghana buy car is becoming too much and these leads to trafficking but the mistake is people do not buy safe, quality and environmental friendly such as electric cars and solar powered cars. The problem is that emmisions or pollutant from cars causes a serious thing known as global warming which may have affect on us.
    Investing in green energy because a lot of people do not know know the cause or effect of fossil fuels and also use them for their domestic use. We can use renewable energy such as the sun or wind . We should stop using fossil fuels and concentrate on renewable energy because it will not cause any harm to the environment.
    Thank you!

    I see that invest in green transport is the better way of building back greener in my country .
    Using electric cars instead of pitrol cars is better for the air , it reduces release toxic fumes. Sustainable transport can save money that we can benifit with it in planting trees ,improving our health and reducing environmental footprint .
    Walk for short distances,cycle instead of driving cars. Share one car in a family or even with the neighbours . Consider car-pooling . Make the low emessions a priority , because a small thing can be the reason of the end of the world.

    I am from Palestine so I will choose the method that I think is suitable for my country
    Only one way to "rebuild greener"
    I think invest in green transportation
    Why?
    Because it is the least expensive because it is more suitable for the climate and can reduce the problems of pollution of all types of noise and air, and also we will not need to remove trees on the road to open and expand the street,
    Investing in green energy is not commensurate with my country due to the lack of potential
    I did not choose to support green businesses or support green research because we are a poor country
    I would not choose to help nature because we have both wild plants and perennial trees that will do the trick

    Cartoon 2: The Earth, Covid 19 and climate change are the characters. The Earth is fighting Coronavirus 19 unaware that it will also have to battle Climate Change. The Earth is currently, preoccupied with Coronavirus 19, but does not realise that the greater opponent, climate change, is still a formidable threat.
    Step 2: Green: Something is described as green when it is environmentally friendly. Build back greener: Building more environmentally friendly infrastructure after the pandemic.
    Step 4: Investing in green energy will help the climate the most. Helping nature through planting trees and reducing pollution, will help the most people. Investing in green transport will change how we live the most. Investing in green energy and helping nature is the most important for my country. Helping nature is easier to do without government support.
    My two questions are: 1. Which of these methods would help to alleviate poverty. 2. Which of these methods would help to provide sustainable employment to young people.

    The method that I would choose would be to help nature, because of these six reasons:
    1. My country depends heavily on its agricultural sector.
    2. My country needs to be able to feed itself in a sustainable way.
    3. Sustaining nature will help plant and animal life as well as lessen the impact of weather systems such as hurricanes, which my country is susceptible to.
    4. It reduces pollution in general.
    5. It restores the natural environment.
    6. It benefits Tourism, in particular Eco-Tourism, which is a major foreign exchange earner in my country.

    There is no question that earth has been a giving planet, everything humans have needed to survive, and thrive was provided by the natural world around us
    Nature preforms major miracles for us everyday from giving us great views and helping to prevent floods to regulating the weather and keeping us supplied with clean water, fresh air and plentiful food. It also heals us from anxiety, depression…
    but Us Humans instead of appreciating and protecting this treasure , we are destroying it With all the amazing things nature has bee giving us, we are still not aware of its importance,
    Imagine with me a world without Nature . Without trees. Clouds . Season . Snow . Green grass . Beautiful flowers … What would the meaning of life be ?
    the answer is “nothing” , a meaningless life.
    Which is why we have to step up , it is time to help and protect nature like it has been protecting us since the birth of the earth.
    So what can humans do
    to build back greener ¿
    Everyone knows how the corona virus destroyed our world but what they don’t know is how much this pandemic helped nature to recover itself and to heal itself.
    But do we always need a pandemic to protect nature?
    Can’t we protect it ourselves?
    And the answer is: YES WE CAN.
    since all the countries do not have the same budget to save the environment so I am going to talk about my country "Tunisia"
    We can help nature by planting trees provide food and oxygen they help save energy , clean the air and help combat climate change , converse water; the less water you use the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the oceans

    Hlo every one, good morning😊 I am precious _morning from Nepal, I see that our topic today is building back greener! Wow this topic is very interesting, I saw everyone cmt was very nice, but in my opinion I feel the people can bring back greener in my country by changing our main energy sources to solar or maybe through the wind to easily generate energy for people to use. Actually I think in my country the best idea is to build back greener is planting more and more trees, because planting trees helps us to stop air pollution, especially when we have free time we should plant trees., because it helps us to build back greener again,. Thank you 🇳🇵🇳🇵

    People should be encouraged to start planting trees to reverse the climate change.
    The lake Bosomtwe of Ghana in Ashanti region of Ghana. It is a natural lake with very green surroundings. Recently the lake came under serious threat, people were gradually eroding the green vegetation around the lake. Quickly, the Ashantehene of the Ashanti kingdom came in to save the trees around the lake. He has planned to plant two million trees around the lake. Also, he has mobile app to track and monitor the planted trees. In fact, this initiative by the king has saved the natural lake from dying out.
    In other traditional leaders and individuals in the society can emulate good examples set by the paramount chief of Ashanti kingdom, climate change will soon be the thing of the past.

    The reason why government should support green business is that most of production companies pollute the environment through the smoke from their factories, so government should be nice to the businesses that are environmentally friendly by giving them tax holiday, ie if it cannot give them money. Those other companies that are not environmentally friendly should be tax heavily and money used to correct menace created . In Ghana, the government seriously fighting illegal logging of trees and illegal mining. This move is helping to protect the environment.

    We need to transform the recovery into a real opportunity to do things right for the future to put in place their own green recovery packages and shape the 21st century economy in clean, green, healthy, safe and more resilient ways.

    First, the huge sums that will be spent on recovering from the Coronavirus must provide new jobs and companies through a clean and environmentally friendly transformation.

    Second, when taxpayer money is used to save companies, it must be linked to green jobs and sustainable growth.

    Third, financial firepower must lead to a shift from a gray economy to a green economy, empowering communities and people to be more resilient.

    Fourth: Public funds should be used to invest in the future, not the past, and flow to sustainable sectors and projects that help the environment and climate. Fossil fuel subsidies must end, and polluters must start paying the price for their pollution.

    Fifth, climate risks and opportunities must be integrated into the financial system as well as in all aspects of public policy-making and infrastructure.

    Sixth: Everyone needs to work together as an international community.

    We may also provide a safe, clean and healthy environment.

    In the current era of the virus, I sit down and watch TV, and I find all the channels talking about Covid_19, most of them incarnating a brutal Covid_19 virus fighting Earth.

    But actually, its not fighting Earth, its fighting human and their destructive deeds. The public are forgetting global warming, the fires in most forests, and the ice melting because of global warming?

    In my view, Covid_19 has had a positive effect on the climate, making the air clean enough for living things to breathe away from smoke, the weather has become nice, the sky has become clearer.

    That also does not mean that Covid_19 is not dangerous. It harms the public, so we must stay together, take prevention, and contribute to planting trees and contribute to returning wild animals to their homeland. I hope that Covid_19 will end soon, meanwhile we work to come back greener and stay green for the future of all humans.

So we should start using renewable energy sources. For example,solar power or wind power .

    3- The world's concern in fighting Covid 19, and not paying enough attention to climate change.

    I agree to this comment that, we can plant trees without government support, if every household would decide to plant trees in and around their houses, according to the number of people in each house. With this, they can take care of them to grow without hiring anyone to take care of the trees. It is said that,"when the last tree dies, the last man dies," why not then plant a tree for each man alive around our homes?.

    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 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 my country needs to Help Nature.

    We will stop corona virus frim spered by washing our hand carefully and stay far from other people at least 2 meters.
    It has been in the news alot recently .
    Corona virus is the name of a large famaily viruses .
    They get their name because a microscope they look abit like a crown.
    One of the most thinghs to help the virus spreading.
    To do now is social distancing with means .
    Keeping enough space between peaple, thats why we have to stay home as much as we can these days.
    Another important thing to do now is wash our hands constant with water and soap.

    Step 4
    Investing in Green in all its type is important and the ways suggested are linked to each others. If we invest in green energy many positive changes will follow, Green energy leads to less co2 emission, consuming bio will also lead to less use of Pesticides. The question is that what effects will this have on employment? Won't many families lose their jobs as most factories use petrol and produce co2? I belive we need to do these changes gradually while thinking of businesses and families income. Going green is amazing but it's expensive. Planting trees and reducing litter is not that expensive so it can go as fast as possible while carrying out the other expensive changes gradually and finding solutions to harmful impacts on economy.

    INVESTING IN GREEN ENERGY.
    The world runs on energy, renewable resources are paving the way for a cleaner, more efficient society. Be it in the form of solar, wind, geothermal or hydro , among others, there's an unceasing supply of these alternatives energy sources all of which are carbon neutral. Increasing the supply of renewable energy would allow us to replace carbon intensive energy source and significantly reduce global warming emission.
    Renewables can also replace fossil fuels for reducing the greenhouse gases emissions. Energy use is changing fast. The shift to renewable source, however, needs to happen faster not just in power generation but in heating, building and transport, to check the rise in global temperatures.
    Renewables could supply four - fifth of the world's electricity by 2050, massively cutting carbon emissions and helping to mitigate climate change.
    Thanks

    I live in Tunisia where we have different types of landscapes due to different weathers. In the south of my country there is a desert. We can create a big number of solar power there which may afford our country with alternative clean energy. I understand it is expensive to do it but we can gain more once we achieve this. In our country we have many factories releasing toxic gases and chemical substances, I wish the government put more effort into enforcing laws to reduce this harm. They can be encouraged to do so by reducing their taxes.

Climate change is affecting Nigeria market in significant ways. It's my believe that with institutional investors and government getting behind "clean tech", investing in renewable and efficient technologies may be a smart financial decision as well as a necessity for a healthy planet. Nigeria is endowed with sufficient renewable energy resources to meet its present and future development requirements as well as complement its current oil dependent economy.

    In my country Ghana,the best way for us to"build back greener" is by helping nature by planting trees.Planting of trees is very easy for each and everyone to participate in.When we plant trees,we help maintain the carbon cycle and also reduce greenhouse effect which causes arise in the earth's temperature.When the trees are planted they absorb the excess air pollutants in the air we create through photosynthesis.Also,when we plant trees,it serves as a habitat for other animals and these places can be used for tourist sites which will improve the revenue of Ghana.Wherein, people would pay money to see these interesting sites.

    But those who have their money or the bread winner will say that what ever is occurring to the climate and the environment he or she don't care all because they have their money and we must not follow the unacceptable way of social behavior.

    As well as public awareness of the importance of preserving the environment, through scientists. Celebrities who are role models for the rest. When they care about environmental issues and fighting climate change, they urge the public to protect the planet. I believe that governments have a role to play in educating the public. And scholars support. Supporting environmentally friendly institutions and punishing companies that destroy the environment and obligating them to transform their activities into healthy activities.
    I think that these measures are effective and the majority have started applying these measures.

But my question is, can people stop using oil and gas .. In my opinion, I do not think that the whole world will end oil in its lifetime, and that it will commit to renewable resources. Also, the idea of ​​financial support can solve crises, but will governments give money to preserve the environment? You will give them, but not all the time. So I think the idea of ​​planting trees and reducing pollution is a good idea that people can stick to. This is my opinion !

Sometimes trees die because of pollution. I also think that if we don't burn the bush there might be less pollution. Bush burning is mostly done by farmers to clear the bush, they do these with knowing it is hazardous to the atmosphere.
    We can help nature by not cutting down older trees,if it is needed to be cut down a new one should be planted.

    Step4:
    *Which of these ways to build back greener will help the climate most?
    I think it is INVEST IN GREEN TRANSPORT. I say this because , when we make more electricity cars and green public transport system, there will be less smoke from over-aged cars and there will also be less heat from cars which will help slow climate change because the amount of private cars used on the roads will be reduced.
    *Which of these ways to build back greener will help the most people?
    I think it is SUPPORT GREEN RESEARCH. That is giving money to experts to find out how to slow climate change. This will help us build back greener because they will bring more information about climate change and how to slow it.
    *Which of these ways to build back greener will change how we live the most?
    I think it is INVEST IN GREEN ENERGY.This is because we will stop using fossil fuels like coal,natural gas and crude oil so it will help us reduce pollution and build back greener.
    *Which of these ways to build back greener is the most important for your country?
    I think it is SUPPORT GREEN BUSINESSES . This is because when the government give money to businesses that are environmentally friendly,because they are not bad for the environment, it will help slow climate change.
    *Which of these ways to build back greener is easiest for a person to do without government support?
    I think it is HELP NATURE.That is planting trees and reducing pollution. I say this because it is easy to do without any help from the government and is also good for the climate.
    And in my country, a total of five million trees are expected to be planted in a single day by institutions, schools, churches, hospitals and many more,to help us build back greener.

    I see it as a solution to the climate crisis, as, unfortunately, people do not abide by the laws and do not feel the danger of the situation, they continue to do wrong things that harm the environment with all barbarism, in fact I really hate the existence of human rights and the lack of rights to the environment, we exist because of nature ..

    3) Deploying bins for garbage sorting.

    4) Penalties are imposed on those who throw food leftovers.

    Step1

    The characters are our planet Earth, and Coronavirus which are fighting, this gives us the message that we are still fighting covid from invading our planet, and that we are nearly defeating Covid-19 in the UK.

    The characters are still our planet Earth and Coronavirus, but there’s another one: climate change. Covid and Earth are fighting, but beside them is climate change which is 10 times more enormous than them, while climate change is just standing in the background. This gives us the message that even though the UK is finally defeating covid, there’s still another even bigger and dangerous threat, which is climate change.

    Step2

    Green = When we reduce, recycle and reuse anything, for example, bags.

    Build back greener = When we work with nature and not against it.

    Step3

    We should build back greener because scientists say that if we don't take big steps to cut emissions by 2030, we could cause a dangerous amount of global warming. If this happens, our planet and us will be underwater and will be suffering from droughts, heatwaves, arctic conditions, floods, and many more. Climate change will affect more people than the pandemic has and lots of people will die.

    The environment directly and indirectly affects our lives; it expresses all the things that surround us from water, air, humans, animals, plants . Everything around us is an integral part of the environment, and any imbalance, increase or decrease causes disruption of this ecosystem.
    The environment faces a lot of problems, including the elements of the environment itself, the most important of which is human; man is one of the biggest factors that help in the environmental imbalance through killing animals, eliminating vegetation, blowing up vapors, toxic gases, pollutants in the air and other harmful acts Environment.

    Many human and random activities have caused the ozone layer to be degraded, and the presence of plants on the ground has been reduced, resulting in low oxygen production, causing many diseases into the environment. Fish deaths are caused by toxic liquids and compounds that flow to the sea.
    One of the most important problems and risks of environmental pollution is the increased risk of cancer, lung disease, cardiovascular disease, the extinction of many organisms and their inability to adapt to the new environment. However, some natural factors also cause environmental imbalances, Earthquakes and volcanoes..

    In Ghana here i think the best way to build back cleaner is through afforestation and the government of ghana has launched many od such programs one of them is the youth in afforestation program.

    We can reduce climate change by reduce the collecting of plastics bags in stores, supermarket and shops by saving those other plastics bags we collected from those stores before and when we are going to go and buy other thing maybe in that store or in another, we can go with the old plastic bags, instead of collecting new ones.

    Hello, I am from Nigeria and how I can build back greener in my country is by;
    1, I will make sure the government make a law to band the use of plastic and fines any one who breaks the law. Because of its environmental degradation and plastics has low melting point and they can not be use where heat levels are high and areas like Jos Nigeria where I live whose temperature is very high and dumbing of plastics can lead to fire Hazard because of its flammability due to polystyrene, acrylics and polyethylene.
    2, I will make it compulsory for each house where their are no trees to plant trees at least two to promote afforestation.

    Well the simplest and easiest way to build back greener is helping nature. We can all plant trees and take good care of them.

    But I also believe that we have to combine various ways so as to save our planet.
    Yes it can be expensive but it will save our lives.
    Just think what is more important saving money or saving your own life? and the life of your loved ones?

    The best ways to build back greener is by using green energy and green transport. We are all witnesses to a huge number people using vehicles that use diesel and petrol. If these can be controlled then a lot can be changed.
    Also if people in my country (Tanzania) can stop cutting down trees for charcoal then we can avoid defforestation and air pollution.

    Hello .. I believe that one of the most important ways to make the environment green. Stopping the use of fossil fuels and replacing them with clean energy, for example solar energy and other environmentally friendly renewable energies.
    As well as public awareness of the importance of preserving the environment, through scientists. Celebrities who are role models for the rest. When they care about environmental issues and fighting climate change, they urge the public to protect the planet. I believe that governments have a role to play in educating the public. And scholars support. Supporting environmentally friendly institutions and punishing companies that destroy the environment and obligating them to transform their activities into healthy activities.
    I think that these measures are effective and the majority have started applying these measures.

        Allow me to suggest to you what I think will work ... These days all of us know youtuber how to have a large number of followers and how much they have a great impact on their followers, if these people spread awareness within the content that they provide, the followers will follow them and who in turn will influence themto those around them and spread awareness around them, the simplest example is youtuber video that plants trees around him and invites his followers to plant a tree and to photograph their trees and display them on their pages.
        It will be fun, easy and useful to purify the atmosphere from pollution and thus slow climate changes and will add a beautiful appearance.

    Step 1
    Cartoon 1
    The characters here are the earth and the COVID-19 virus.
    In this cartoon, we could all see that there is a conflict between the earth and COVID-19.
    What this cartoon wants to tell us that, every part of the world is seriously fighting against the COVID-19.
    Cartoon 2
    In the second cartoon the characters are the earth, COVID-19 and climate change.
    The earth is fighting against the COVID-19 while the climate change is observing them.
    This cartoon’s message is that, as the earth is seriously fighting the COVID-19, the climate change is waiting patiently for its turn to override them.
    Step 2: The summary:
    Anything “green” is described as environmentally friendly.
    Step 4
    1. Which of these ways to “build back greener” will help the climate most?
    I think help nature (point 3) is the best way which will help climate change because activities such as planting trees will reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which reduces the effects of global warming thereby reducing the effects of climate change.
    2. Which of these ways to “build back greener” will help the most people?
    In my opinion, I think support green business (point 2) is the best since green businesses mostly recycle items to make them reusable which also reduces the effect of land pollution.
    3. Which of these ways to “build back greener” will change how we live the most?
    I will choose invest in green energy (point 1) as the best because, most people in my country, Ghana are not addicted to the ways of using green energy such as the use of organic waste to make LPG gas so it will be a new experience for the people in my country changing how we live.
    4. Which of these ways to “build back greener” is the most important for your country?
    I will choose support green research (point 4) because, if we pay people to find out more about the climate change, it will help my country by slowing down climate change since we know the causes and effects.
    5. Which of these ways to “build back greener” is easiest for a person to do without government support?
    I think help nature (point 3) is the best for a person to do since activities such as planting of trees does not require governmental support.

    And finally, if you could only choose one way to "build back greener", which one would it be and why?
    The one way I will choose to "build back greener" will be help nature because, if we engage in activities such as the planting of trees and helping nature, we would be able to "build back greener" easily.

    In fact, I find the Covid-19 virus a gift of nature, as it has resulted in air purification, reduced waste, reduced hunting and less polluted air from factories, and a halt to wars, and countries have come together to reduce the crisis and support some of them, whether with masks or vaccines.
    I see it as a solution to the climate crisis, as, unfortunately, people do not abide by the laws and do not feel the danger of the situation, they continue to do wrong things that harm the environment with all barbarism, in fact I really hate the existence of human rights and the lack of rights to the environment, we exist because of nature ..

    I came from Palestine, specifically from Gaza, and we have a lot of waste ..

    I believe that my country should:
    1) Replace petroleum-based generators with solar cells.

    2) Punishing people who throw garbage on the ground or who burn garbage ..

    3) Deploying bins for garbage sorting.

    4) Penalties are imposed on those who throw food leftovers.

    5) Raise awareness about the garbage crisis

    6) To plant trees a lot, and to prevent fires in public places.

    I realize that if everyone abided by these rules, there would be no rubbish in the world.

    Cartoon 1: The World is fighting with Covid-19. This cartoons message means people in the world is busy on fighting the Covid-19 at the moment. It looks like we're going to win.
    Cartoon 2: However, there is a stronger opponent- the Sun, climate change, is waiting to fight the World. This message means we should not ignore climate change.

    STEP 2
    Green: Green means to protect the nature future.
    Build back greener means people are trying to save the world.

    I suppose the most important thing in my country is to invest in green transport. There should be more maintenance to the vehicles especially the public transport with very old buses and trains which produce greenhouse effect. Maintaining one's car well is important meanwhile investing in green cars of the future. No one can deny the high cost of eco friendly transport but the cost on our health is more expensive and harmful. I assume this can be the first step and it can cut gases emission quickly.

    Step 4
    1. From my point of view, I believe that investing in green energy is the best solution to climate change because : 1. it is fairly easy to control this matter for people , 2. the use of fossil fuels may cause the emission of many gases, which leads to the climate being affected significantly if it is used therefore when Stop using it, the climate will moderate.
    2 . I think that helping nature is what will help people more because most people may have some plant seeds if they keep them, and thus more work will be done, especially since agriculture is something that is popular with many people
    3. It is possible that investment in green transportation is what will constitute A change to our way of life because on the one hand it can greatly benefit the climate because we will stop using means of transportation that cause gas emissions and will also preserve the system on the other hand
    4 . Perhaps the most important for my country is investing in green energy because we, by nature of our livelihood in Palestine, depend on solar energy for a lot Sometimes or wind energy, that is the best option because it is a mistake and an expensive geo.
    5 . In my opinion, the most thing that makes us dispense with government support is helping nature because we are We the citizens will do this work without the support of any party

    The characters in the first cartoon are planet Earth and Covid 19.
    I see Earth is facing Covid 19
    It's conveys the message that the Earth is in danger as it faces Covid 19
    and we have to act about it.
    In the second cartoon, the characters are the Earth, Covid-19, and climate change
    What is happening is a preliminary stage to the conflict between Earth and Covid-19.
    The message here is that the most difficult round behind Covid 19 is to fight the climate change crisis, which in the image appears larger than the Earth and Covid 19 , and it affects both, it's indicates the difficulty of the situation and the magnitude of the crisis

    I live in Tunisia where we have different types of landscapes due to different weathers. In the south of my country there is a desert. We can create a big number of solar power there which may afford our country with alternative clean energy. I understand it is expensive to do it but we can gain more once we achieve this. In our country we have many factories releasing toxic gases and chemical substances, I wish the government put more effort into enforcing laws to reduce this harm. They can be encouraged to do so by reducing their taxes.

    We can build back greener by investing more money in renewable energy resources. By investing in renewable energy sources we are rapidly reducing our carbon emissions and the greenhouse gases that we were releasing into the atmosphere. Investing in renewables will also help us save money in the long run because we will get our energy for free from the climate and weather. Another way we can build back greener is by switching to green energy transport. Travel is something almost everybody does on a daily basis, so by switching to green energy transport we will massively reduce the amount of carbon dioxide that we are releasing into the environment.

    Every person has a different opinion, so everyone is heading towards his life and his needs, so the businessman has his opinion: (Making the world greener will be expensive ... but not returning to the path again after the Corona pandemic will cost us more) and I do not agree with this opinion because the threat of climate threatens future generations.
    There is an opinion such as: (Global warming does not affect my life, so there is no need to re-make the world greener than before)
    This is the opinion of many people, such as: The student who only cares about his studies and his success.
    And there is the opinion of the citizen (I just need a job to feed my family, I don't care if it is about greening or working.
    This, of course, is a negative opinion, because the damage will be inflicted on everyone.
    There are those who contradict them, i.e. the saying of the environmental activist (if we did not make the world greener now, when will we do that)
    And another opinion as well, which is the opinion of the officials (whatever is better for the environment is better for people as well)

    Of course, people's opinions will be different, each according to his needs, capabilities, responsibilities, position and work.
    Not everyone who rides the sea loves it, there are those who ride it under compulsion, those who ride it to seek sustenance, and those who ride it for pleasure, because people have different tastes ...

    Step 1

    The first person is: Covid 19
    The second character is: The Globe
    The picture shows that the Earth is fighting and fighting the deadly virus. Climate change has an important role in influencing and weakening the virus and reducing its risks through social distancing, wearing masks, washing hands with soap, using sterilizer, covering the nose when sneezing, and following the laws of the protocol.

    step 4
    I think the most important way to build back greener in Gaza PalestineI It is the growing of trees through the imposition of laws that make it mandatory for every person in the country to plant trees around his environment and preserve them and not cut them down. It forms a green belt around the environment, both inside and outside, thus increasing the opportunities for purifying air and reducing pollution. It leads to a healthy, clean and disease-free environment. It produces a generation capable of investing in fruit trees, such as benefiting from their shade, fruit and timber. Thus, it becomes a developed agricultural country, reaching a stage of self-sufficiency through the solidarity of the people and adherence to the laws of the country.

We can also conduct public education on the dangers of releasing certain harmful chemicals and gases into the environment. Since we all want improvement at places where we live and to maintain it all the time, then we must adopt good attitude towards improving our environment

    To build back green i would invent solar powered waste gas purifiers .The most common problem the environment is facing is that of waste gases. The purifiers will have sensors that will dictate waste gases in the atmosphere that have not been absorbed by trees the purifiers will then absorb the waste gases and purify then to oxygen , this will reduce climate change

    I think the most important way to build ''back greener'' in my country Nigeria is to help nature. Helping nature is the best way to reduce climate change. If we help nature we can survive in the environment safely without getting sick or harmed. Helping nature is the biggest contribution to reduce climate change in the world. Reducing human activities can reduce pollution like land pollution. Land pollution can destroy the crops in the soil. Nigeria we have a lot of pollution which when reduced will help climate change and with a lot of experience and awareness we can build ''back greener''.

It is slowly making the ozone layer thinner and thinner. The smoke is also very dangerous to breath in as it damages the lungs. It also reduces the amounts of CO2 plants receive and we all know that without plants, we cannot live

        I said we need to invest in solar energy to return greener because first and foremost my country is blessed and rich in solar power, secondly solar energy is much safer to our health,it is harmless,less expensive than electricity.electricity on the other hand can be dangerous to our health, for example the high tensions built around our environment is harmful to the human system,so investing in solar will give us healthy body system and make us spend less therefore improving our economy.that's why I said investing in solar energy will help us to return greener.

This represents how climate change is much more significant than COVID-19, however despite that the entire world is much more focused on a more current threat towards humanity which is COVID-19.

This is because people are increasing faster than we thought , which means that there is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and industries are mining for minerals which is destroying the trees ,the smoke from cars, airplanes and factories are producing more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which is really dangerous because most of the dangerous sickness comes from bad air in the atmosphere especially lungs related diseases.But I think we can solve it a little bit by planting trees after we cut them ,educating people to plant a lot of trees taking a bus instead of your own car, stop using old vehicles and appliances and filling up mining places with best soil for planting trees.

    I think that if the government focus more on helping nature ,then it could reduce the treats of climate change.

    Climate change refers to the significant changes in the global temperature, precipitation, wind pattern, and other measures of climate which occur over several decades. Gwagwalada Area Council, Abuja; where I live is exposed to climate change, and it is linked to her reliance on climate-dependent activities such as Agriculture. This activity is climate regulated.
    Records reveals that Abuja recorded its worst flooding, a torrential rainfall which lasted for 6 hours, that left behind tales of pain as many houses were submerged, bridges collapsed, loss of properties and loss of human lives. Flooding is just one out of the many impacts of climate change faced in Gwagwalada , Abuja.
    Farming activities are carried out, mostly close to the river banks, this is because of the proximity to the river as a source of irrigation, the noticeable increase of the water level and most recently the flooding of the river bank which resulted in the washing off of their farmlands left an unforgettable sorrowful experience for them.
    Climate change, which has been observed to affect agriculture, which in turn affect food production requires provision to farmers, climate-resilient seed species, this will help them adapt favorably to the challenges of low harvest yield as a result of climate change.
    There is need to adopt another strategies that will replace supply of farmers with inorganic fertilizers which also contributes to Green House Gases.
    1) Government should encourage the use of organic.
    2) There is a need to raise awareness on a switch to other renewable and environmentally friendly fuel for cooking, such as cooking stove and Liquefied Natural Gas,
    3) Government can partner with private organizations to subsidize these and give out to households where there is a huge dependence on fire wood and charcoal, this will help to reduce deforestation and desertification in these areas.
    In my opinion as regards the question on "How could where someone lives affect their opinion about “building back greener”, it is certain that majority, based on the nasty experiences shared about might be having the building back greener is near impossible. But I submit that our actions or activities contributes to climate change, which also impact the effects of climate change. Stakeholders, like farmers and indigenous people who live in our communities, must be included during policy drafting and when the policy is finally approved, enforcement becomes easy task to achieve.
