The environment is at risk in many countries around the world. There is a lot of pollution from manufacturing firms and production plants, poorly planned growth and expansion of cities, invasion of natural habitats and so much more. There is also a lot of opposition to efforts towards preserving the environment. However, citizens need to rise and be heard. There are various ways citizens around the world can rise and get the ruling elite to listen. Political voices can help in this regard.
Here is how our political voices can save the environment.
The political voice is a diverse landscape. It involves people, mainly ordinary citizens, seizing opportunities to be heard. Citizens can engage in debates and public forums and participate in activities that provide them with a platform where they can air their views and be heard. The aim is largely to influence the decision and policy making process.
One way of doing this involves joining movements such as the Environmental Movement Members of this movement can reach out to their communities, organize campaign rallies, engage the media and participate in events such as walks, demonstrations, and picketing. All these are civil, organized and democratic ways of getting a point across to the political leadership and trying to influence policy.
Another way is to be heard through the electoral process. By voting into office political leaders who support the environmental cause and are willing to develop policies that curb pollution, citizens will effectively take part in saving the environment. People can also take action within the community. Work can include urging local institutions to change their energy sources, demanding coal plants be regulated and so on. These are all great examples of how our political voices can save the environment. Success requires taking part in the electoral processes, picketing and campaigning at local levels.
Lastly, you can go online and make sure your voice is politically tied to something that is already significant. NAR is an organization that will help you do this as well.
