Comments on: Passion and Action – President's Environmental Youth Awards The EPA Blog Tue, 28 Jul 2015 07:50:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: Johnny R. Mon, 23 Nov 2009 16:27:09 +0000 The most urgent need today is recycling the trash that washes up on the beaches. Volunteers are needed for local initiatives in almost all communities in almost every nation, because many tons of garbage are being dumped into the ocean every day, causing a massive build-up of plastic debris that will not degrade for many years and is being ingested by sea birds, dolphins, whales and other sea life whose feeding instinct cannot distinguish between real food and trash. Yet, our growing population and our growing economy produce more garbage every day. This will stop, either by social reform or the toxic collapse of one bio-region after another until it is too late to reverse it. To do nothing is to admit defeat.

Muito obrigado!

Sugestão ao Presidente Obama.

Todas as escolas implantariam um viveiro de mudas de árvores. Na medida em que as sementes germinassem já receberiam o carinho dos alunos e quando atingissem maior altura seriam plantadas nas ruas, avenidas e praças.

Os Prefeitos das cidades também implantariam viveiros, no entanto, as árvores seriam plantadas nas margens dos rios e das nascentes e formariam também as reservas florestais. Na minha opinião seria um forma de incentivar e conscientizar os jovens quanto a importância do verde, obviamente, com a participação do governo.

The for those that have a passion to help in the solar energy, being and energy author, taking up environmental studies in college, this programs seems to be what will help lead you in the right direct. Happy to see there is a program for the youth that focuses on conserving energy. They are the future.

My passion for environment has been coming from a particular aspiration for “literature” and nature.
This nature admiration brings this environment passion.
I have been using any kind of philosophy strategic to “spread the word” by making my closer surrounding people to reconsider the nature’s beauty.
I have been dreaming to recreate my native Country environment on a long-term projection.

Here, it’s called KALPATARU award, but not for K – 12th grade like yours’.

Dogmatism cultured in our country is one of barriers of youth generation to developt their creativities. In the cities is looser than villages. So, not easy to create your event here. Congratulation !

By: Jorge Gerônimo Hipólito Fri, 20 Nov 2009 16:42:10 +0000 I have an idea for President Obama, as well as to all school principals. Deploy to all schools a bed of seedlings of native trees. Students under the supervision of a technician take care of the seedlings to reach the stage of planting them in the streets, avenues, squares and around the springs. Ah, could also deploy beds of seedlings in all cities and that would be administered by mayors. The trees produced were planted on the banks of rivers. Do you agree or not?
