In recent years, the environment has experienced problems like never before such as climate change. These problems if not managed and prevented may lead to the destruction of the world and life as we know it will come to an end.
There is a huge gap in our communities whereby people are not environmentally conscious, aware or even educated and this has contributed to environmental degradation. Taking a free online class is the step in the right direction. It will bring about knowledge which one can share and also practice in everyday life. It will also bring about changed behaviour with how
people interact and treat the environment. Change needs to start with us as community members.
