Environmental issues are defined as problem related to the planet’s systems (air, water, soil, etc.) that have developed as a result of human interference or mistreatment of the globe, therefore Planet protection is the union of all the necessary procedures aimed to set an equilibrium between the planet capacities and human needs.
The third decade of the 21st century has begun and the environmental challenges we have ahead of us, set out in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, are many. The global plan of action adopted in 2015 puts forward specific measures to achieve a world that is fairer, more prosperous and more respectful of the environment within 8 years. In this regard, the UN itself warns that we are running late, bringing the question: will we have the time to do anything significant about it?
Being environmentally aware means understanding how our behaviour impacts the environment and committing to making changes to our activities to protect the planet. The environmentalist movement in recent decades has prompted many people to make both minor and substantial lifestyle changes to live in a more environmentally friendly way.This thanks to a wise usage of the biggest world net humans have, mass media. Activists and academics from all around the world had the opportunity to inform and influence positively more people about Planetary issues, unfortunately still not all.
Researching about the topic, the first thing that catches the eye is that many websites related to Planet Protection and environmental issues mention the sentence “educate yourself”, and few researches are related to schooling adaptation of curriculum towards environmental awareness. This can easily make us question why a topic concerning the extinction of mankind is left on our shoulders.
