Conserving the environment and reversing the threatening climate change affects the entire world and requires a global action to achieve a global effect. Unfortunately, poor nations which mainly depend on the natural environment for survival need help to tackle poverty to be able to deal with environmental concerns. Then, there is the unwillingness of some countries to adopt more rigorous environmental laws out of fear to jeopardise their economic growth. Many environmentalists therefore worry that a global action will start only when it will be too late and urge the people to take action themselves.

Saving the environment may seem like Sisyphus’ task from a point of view of an individual, however, we are not as helpless as it may seem at a first glance. In fact, people have been shown to have the power to change the world if they really want to.

we should identify the key environmental issues as well as provides guidance on how to reduce the harmful human impact on the environment. We have focused on human activities that cause the most harm but we have also focused on concrete solutions for the main environmental issues with an aim to show that every individual can help make our planet a friendlier place.
