EDUCATION & ENVIRONMENT
Conservation for Healthy People & Happy Lives
Lack of safe water as well as damage to the environment, leads to increased hunger, illness, poverty and reduced opportunities to make a living.
The poorest people and the poorest countries are being hit first and hardest by climate change. Yet they bear the least responsibility for greenhouse-gas emissions.
Poorer people are also less resilient to natural or manmade disasters. Looking after natural resources makes poorer communities more adaptable.
Educating people on the link between climate change, conservation & poverty empowers them to implement protective measures for healthy living. Safe water management, environmental sanitation & natural resource conservation provides essential protection for vulnerable communities.
EDUCATION & ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
It Can Be Done works cooperatively with Uru East people for continued development of sustainable safe water access. Environmental protections prevent disease and bring long-term benefits for the economy and human development. Funds & educational partners are being sought to implement essential
community education programs for:
- integrated water resource management including protecting water sources, streams & springs from pollutants
- environmental sanitation to maintain healthy homes, schools and public lands
- ecological conservation to protect disappearing trees, prevent soil erosion from ground degradation, preserve animal habitat and prevent diminishing of ozone layer by carbon gases
