  9. 9. Importance in my course<br /> This is important since as a Resource Manager, I will be needing raw materials that might be extracted from the nature. It is my responsibility as a manager to be effective and efficient at the same time. I will be needing resources for production and whether I like it or not, I will have to extract from nature and affect it. The only thing that I can do is to lessen it or have a better alternative. In example, instead of letting my employees use plastic bags for the packaging of my product, then I will look for an alternative that is eco-friendly and can be recycled. In such way, I can contribute to the nature, economy and other people who will be at the same position like me.<br />Importance for me<br />It plays a very important role in my life basically because it sustains life here on Earth. If there is no ecosystem, biomes and other things, then there will be no places like Singapore which I can enjoy. It is very important for I know that it can face extinction and I would like to stop that. I can make the change and pass the beauty of this world to other generations. This world is only one and all of us will benefit or take the consequences that we are doing now. Every one can make a difference and I know that a simple presentation like this can do something to contribute in the important roles of this activity.<br />
