We have lived through consecutive warmest years ever recorded. It’s not a fluke anymore and the trend show no sign of reversing itself. It’s not an understatement to call environment change the crisis of our era. After all, the environment isn’t creating the problem. We are.
Despite vocal contingent deniers who loudly suggest otherwise, that human emissions of greenhouse gases deserve the bulk of the blame. The root cause of most ongoing environmental crisis is human behavior towards our milieu.
Environmental change experts brought about some daunting thoughts for the people; that most humans in today’s hi-tech society are disconnected from the natural world. The change in the environment we are living in, over a long time makes it difficult for people to connect their slip-shouldered behavior of today to the ecological consequences of tomorrow. Our systems are built so efficiently that we don’t know where the abundance of the resources we have actually is coming from and where its disposal is going to. That’s what rather makes the environmental change so stubborn.
While individual choices matter, most experts acknowledge that tackling a problem as large as global environmental change will require thinking on a bigger scale. Psychologists worldwide are among those on the front line working to change behavior within corporations, organizations, communities and governments to curb consumption and turn down the global heat.
Building a sustainable future involves satisfying the needs of the present population without endangering the capability of future population to satisfy their own needs. This seem to dig deeper. This means we want companies to expand, people to have the best of jobs, to build Eco-friendly homes. We want to develop innovative technologies while keeping the environment safe.
The 3 important components of sustainable environmental development – Economic Growth, Environmental Stewardship and Social Inclusion. Countries are recognizing the importance of conserving natural resources, people are switching to prefabricated Eco-friendly homes, cycling instead of driving, farmers are practicing climate smart agriculture and the industries are realizing as to how much they can save through energy efficiency.
Understanding sustainable environmental development and its goals is the first step to learn what we can do to make it happen. There are many initiatives already in place, but still many roadblocks do exist that need to overcome.
Global organizations and Governments are increasingly sponsoring many initiatives to reach the Goals of Developing Sustainable Environment to the future “YOU”!
- To minimize the depletion of natural resources when creating new developments.
- To create progress that can be maintained and sustained without causing further harm to the environment.
- To provide methods for furnishing existing expansions to make them into environmentally friendly facilities and projects.
Few other most important goals set for the mankind by these above bodies to develop sustainable environment include to generate:
Energy harnessed from the motion of wind using wind turbine or windmills. It is renewable and can be used to substitute energy at the grid. This makes it a good sustainable development practice.
Energy harnessed from the sun using solar panels. Beneficial as it’s absolutely free and its supply is infinite. These factors bring profit to consumers and its Good for Mother Nature too as it doesn’t contribute to emission of greenhouse gasses.
They are designed to reduce the carbon footprint of the construction industry. Such homes not only involve shorter development cycle but assure the quality of construction too.
The biggest trend of the coming years – Prefab Structures!
Prefabrication has observed increase in its sustainability in the embedded trade of construction. It takes a lot less energy and fewer slip-ups, saving on energy consumption in the long run.
The developers worldwide are extensively using prefab technology to reduce the construction timelines and the development costs. These methods are scientifically proven to be more precise and energy efficient in comparison to the conventional forms of construction. In the long run the millennial’s and new technologies should become the driving force behind this much wider adoption of pre-fabricated way of dwelling their dream projects.
