My Deeper Consciousness of Nature

The study of nature encompasses a vast array of scientific knowledge, as well as yielding our deeper understanding of the spectacular world. It may narrowly appear as the surroundings in most people’s eyes, for instance, simply plants and wildlife. Nevertheless, from my perspective, nature is more closely related to the achievement of worldwide peace and prosperity.

 

Being taught that cultivating plants and showing interest in animal conservation were crucial, I, an unsophisticated child, believed that not stepping on the grass would truly protect the natural world. How naive I was! Additionally, visiting zoos and feeding animals were my primary means to interact with nature, resulting in our relationship mainly developing through delightful field trips and entertaining academic tasks. However, as I grew up, I realized that genuine care for nature also involves sustainable energy, green facility construction, the consciousness of citizens about global issues, and other indispensable elements.

 

In pursuing the success of sustainable projects, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a relatively comprehensive framework that comprises goals in diverse fields, ranging from physical and mental health, economy and industry, to climate and environmental issues. Among all, I particularly appreciate the fourth objective, Quality Education. Undoubtedly, education is essential for every child and teenager to nurture their abilities and foster their reasoning skills. As the ancients said, “One is never too old to learn.” It is remarkable that this goal emphasizes lifelong learning opportunities and strives to eliminate gender disparities, ensuring equal access to education at all levels. In many developing countries, children and adolescents, especially young girls, are deprived of their right to education. Since education can equip the new generation with the knowledge and capabilities to become environmentally conscious and responsible, accomplishing this goal will be tremendously beneficial to not only impoverished individuals but also people worldwide. In addition, education can inspire young minds to pursue careers in environmental science and conservation, and have deeper contact with nature. Consequently, the sustainable development of civilization and the compatible coexistence between nature and humans will be driven to an unprecedented extent, and hence a positive global impact on overall well-being.

 

In conclusion, I highly praise the SDGs for their inclusive aspects and broad vision, not to mention the future-oriented philosophy. Creating a unique connection between nature and myself, the SDGs constantly raise my awareness of the study of nature. I sincerely hope that these goals will be achieved by 2030.
