I am doing what I can to help protect all the species of bees in my local environment here in South-East England, as bees are declining drastically in numbers and health. I am campaigning with the help of various national and local voluntary organisations to raise awareness about the plight of bees and about how we can all become bee guardians through protecting and re-creating the natural habitats that support bees, such as wildflower meadows, vital in my area as the UK has lost 97% of its wildflower meadows since the 1930s. I have even turned most of my garden into a wildflower meadow!
We are a group in Iran more than 100 of university students work on the vermicompost and helping farmers to protect environment by using the vermicompost and do not use chimical compost. We also every week have programe to teach people to protect their environment by knowing how dangerous are plastics. Now we have plan to teach many people to know more about the waste and garbage they produce in their home. We have trained about 5000 women by training them through the face to face. W e are ready to go to poor country and help people for using and producing organic vermicompost and instruct vermicompost farms.
I volunteer in 2011 to plant trees during world environmental day at one of our company out-growers farmer farm in kathini in machakos county Kenya. This year too I have mobilized our health and safety committee members during this year world environmental day on planting of trees on one of our out-growers farmer farm in Athi-River Kenya. Thanks jacinta swara.
ENVIRONMENT AND POLUTION
ENGR. OBIDINMA NDUBUISI
Under the topic of Environmental, and Pollution, we are going to take a case study of Bioremediation of Hydrocarbon contaminated in the soil.
Environment is every matters or every thing that surrounds the earth crust, while pollutions are hazardous things that harm the living things, and the environment.
Taking A Case Study Of Bioremediation Of Hydrocarbon Contaminated In The Soil
Bioremediation is a means of cleaning up contaminated environment by exploiting the diverse biodegradation abilities of micro organisms to convert contaminants compounds to harmless product by mineralization, generalization of carbon dioxide and water.
The process is given below:
Contaminant + Oxygen + Inorganic Nutrient Carbon dioxide + Water + Biomass.
The product given is called bioremediation product, and it is environmental friendly product.
OBJECTIVES OF BIOREMEDIATION
1. To determine the extent to which Hydrocarbon Concentration was reduced by using in-situ enhancement method.
2. To study the effect and influence of micro organisms in treatment of given soil sample.
IMPORTANCE AND USES OF BIOREMEDIATION
1. It helps to protect the ecosystem,
2. It helps to create Job opportunity,
3. It helps to boost agricultural activities, and crop yield when applied appropriately,
4. It will help to reduce the problem of pollution and waste management,
5. It is an environmental friendly option, as no poisonous pollutant is being liberated into the environment at the end of the process, and
6. It serves as an avenue of development through industrialization and the best waste management treatment in the society.
SCOPE OF BIOREMEDIATION
Bioremediation covers the biological elimination of hydrocarbon contamination in the soil. It is the best method that can be used to eliminate because it has no chemical effect.
Planting of trees in our village, creating of nurseries for reafforestation and creating awareness and the need to continue planting of tress both for ourselves and future generations.
In saving the environment, I curated an exhibit called "RUOT: Indigenous flora of the Cordilleras". Together with some friends who love photography, we took photos of plants in our area and asked the botany experts to identify which plants are indigenous. Not only did we learn our cultural uses of the plants, we also traced our migration patterns as a "native group" or learned our roots, and learned to value wide open spaces. Our exhibit has been a permanent collection at the Research Center of the Department of Agriculture in Baguio City. =) Many students are able to see the collection.
Bom para Proteger o Meio Ambiente precisamos da Educação Ambiental, segundo Natália Alves “A educação ambiental é um processo de aprendizagem permanente, baseado no respeito a todas as formas de vida!”.O meio ambiente tem seu lado abiótico que é a influencia que o ser vivo recebe do ecossistema a parte natural dela como os aspectos físicos e químicos sendo luz, temperatura, vento e etc...Mas também há o fator biótico que é o efeito causado pela população que a cerca ou seja somos nos, pela nossa ação irresponsável que polui esse meio pensando que não é nosso e que não iremos usar, pois dependemos dela para nossa sobrevivência,agora e também para as futuras gerações. Se não protegermos agora no presente o que sera do futuro dessas gerações. Devasta, destruir para termos um espaço para um desenvolvimento melhor não é a solução e sim o problema, pois o que adianta a tecnologia se não tivermos saúde? Ou seja nossa saúde e a principal A SAÚDE DO NOSSO PLANETA.

Des Volontaires Secouristes pour accroître les capacités d’engagement citoyen…
Par G. NONGUE
Depuis Août 2011, la Croix- Rouge camerounaise a recommencé son programme de formation civique des Volontaires Secouristes.
Membre de la première promotion de cette relance, notre formation a été théorique et pratique; axée essentiellement sur la connaissance du Mouvement, les Principes et valeurs du Volontariat, la Culture de la Paix, les Premiers Secours, l’Education à la Santé communautaire, la Gestion des catastrophes, le Leadership communautaire.
Plusieurs vagues de Volontaires Secouristes ont, à ce jour, été formées. Ces formations, en effet, suscitent un grand engouement. Notamment auprès des jeunes citadins. Elles accroissent les capacités d’intervention citoyenne en cas d’urgence ou de catastrophe.
Elles contribuent ainsi au développement d’une citoyenneté partagée, responsable et participative.
Educating people about of protecting the environment.
I'm a Ghanaian from Western and southern part of Ghana and l'm contributing my stories as a united nations volunteer. But l have applied for the interst of becoming united nations volunteers and l have been confrimed and unstationed.
l have been educating people about the benefit of keeping it safe for betterment of tommorow. That is the environment we see it safe today might not be safe for us tommorow and there is the need of practicing things that will discourages soil erosion and degradation. This is because littering the environment increases flooding and tends to create poor infilterations and percolations. That is when the rate of deep soil are being clogged with litters int the soil. Again littering the environment tends to increase highest rate of poor oxgyenations from the air. This is beacause poor oxgyenations leads to poor respirations . When there is poor respirations it leads to increase of air pollutions.
Im BOSCO ENZAMA FROM UGANDA
Im very pleased to participate and volunteer with UN basing on my experience I would like to suggest empowerment of women for sustainable development.
Its should be noted that women in the continent of African constitute 60percent of the total population in developing countries they are the minority groups among the most vulnerable s, women are subject to domestic violence, poverty, HIV AND AIDS, illiteracy and among others they therefore become powerless in societies, so to increase there powerfulness, socially politically and economically I would there fore suggest to the delegate who are going to attend the Rio- dejaneiro earth summit 20-22 June 2012 to formulate women empowerment for sustainable development.
women do a lot of u paid labor they struggle to sustain families, they lack resources and skills to improve on their standard of living, they lack necessary information that can help them to take decision on their reproductive health, they lack power to end their exploitation, they need to be included in education, women need fully participation in conservation of the environment, ecosystem and biodiversity for sustainable development because women use the available natural resources for survival and their life mostly depend on the environment, there fore as a united nation volunteer I strongly campaign for women empowerment for both in rural and urban dwelling, empowering them will make women to gain power, access to information and skills for capacity building
I therefore require delegates to fully come out with documents that will enable the state parties to this summit to include women in poverty eradication frame work and i strongly campaign to include my suggestion in discussion.
thanks yours in service.
