Deﬁnition of Green WorldThe word “Green” has diﬀerent meanings indiﬀerent cultures . In some it symbolizes hope,growth and environmentalism. Hence in thiscase, A Green world would mean a World ofhope,healthy growth and a good environmentto be in.
Why do we desire forthis "Green World"? Our current Situation The Earth is losing its trees. For example,Ethiopia is down to 3% forest cover. After trees are cut down, the land will lose its fertility. Soon Biodiversity dwindles, and water supplies dry up. The deserts spreads and more appear, hastening climate change. What are the options for us? Plant trees. Lots of trees. Trees heal barren soil and increase food crops, helping people become self-suﬃcient. They remove CO2 from the air, and restore the environment for generations to come.
