“The creation of a forest begins with one little acorn”
If you’re visiting this page, chances are you received a “violation of planet rights” notice from a little one. Don’t feel bad – they’re just doing their best to express their concern over our planet. It’s a concern we all have but tend to forget. With their innocent but matter-of-fact viewpoint, kids are touched by the topic. They’re also scared, as they should be.
Why kids are worried
People and nature depend on each other – and human activity is impacting our environment causing problems such as global warming, climate change, and extinction of animal species. It’s up to us to fix the problem so the planet we leave our children (and grandchildren) is a good one.
As Gandhi once said, how we treat our environment is a reflection of our character.
“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another” – Mahatma Gandhi
Let’s change how we use our planet’s resources.
Ways you can help
There are simple ways you can help.
Firstly, take the child’s suggestion to heart. If the suggestion was valid, make corrections, even if it hurts to do so. Think of it as a basic human obligation to care for our planet’s resources.
Secondly, take a picture of the child’s card along with a note explaining the correction that you made. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll publish along with full credits to you.
Thanks for taking the time to listen!
