Integrating social, environmental and economic sustainability in my life and my community during a historic time of uncertainty.
The global society is facing growing problems such as Covid-19 pandemic, population growth, climate change, poverty, deforestation, environmental pollution, declining global biodiversity, depletion of natural resources and much more. The pressure to support the growing demands of the society such as increased consumption of food, energy, water, services & products that improve the quality of our life, and u
anization has led to development of technological processes that have impacted our environment in a negative way (Guo). Well developed countries have huge industrial set-ups, gas & oil-mining activities that generate ca
on dioxide, ca
on monoxide emissions (greenhouse gases). These emissions have caused global warming and ozone layer depletion.
Environmental protection and human health are interconnected and the most recent example has been the case of Covid-19 pandemic. Covid-19 is a zoonotic disease that mainly spreads from animals to humans. But due to u
anization and over-crowding, it spread rapidly from human to human. It is suggested that natural ba
iers (which prevent spread of animal diseases to humans) have been severely damaged due to our damaged ecosystem. Land-use changes (human activities that change the natural landscape e.g., u
anization, deforestation, land mining etc.) have been cited as one of the major factors for increase in zoonotic diseases in humans (Gottdenker, 620). A rich bio diversity (healthy ecosystem) acts as reservoirs for zoonotic viruses and stops the transmission to humans, thus, making it essential to conserve the ecosystem for protecting human health. This major global crisis led to economic and social consequences such as weakening of cu
ency, loss of jobs, poverty, hunger, rise in...
