Four(4) Newyear's Resolutions for A Healthier Environment in 2022

When many people think of Newyear's resolutions, they think of ways to improve for the following year. What if we expanded this effort to include resolutions that benefit our communities, society and planet?

This may not be the usual approach, but it can broaden your horizons to find ways in which you can help others.

Here are four popular Newyear's resolutions with a touch to improve your relationship with nature in 2022 and beyond.

Pay more attention to how your actions affect the environment.

Each of us has an environmental ethic that reflects how we value, deal with, and ultimately deal with nature. Balancing the reciprocity between us and nature - how much we give and take - can improve this relationship in many ways. Whether it's our addiction to single-use plastics piling up in landfills or the fossil fuels that warm the planet, improper contact with nature is not good for us and the earth.

By 2022 we can all take more responsibility for how our actions exacerbate environmental problems. We can also encourage governments and companies to make it easier for people from different socioeconomic backgrounds to protect the environment. This includes making recyclables accessible and providing reliable local public transport throughout.

See U.S. resources The Environmental Protection Agency outlines some very simple ways to reduce waste at home, at work, in our communities, and during the holidays. Tips on the website include turning lights on and off during the day, reusing packaging materials, and using online invoicing services instead of paper mail.

Losing weight through social injustice - it also destroys nature.

The dangers of social injustice emphasize many aspects of society. Racism and inequality can lead to health inequalities and also have consequences for the environment.

A recent study explains how practices such as redness and segregation have led to unequal access to nature, excessive pollution, and loss of biodiversity. These practices have created roads and industries that undermine the quality of the environment in marginalized communities. They also leave an environment with fewer gardens and trees that is cool in the summer and beneficial to the planet.

Persistence of social evils such as systemic racism and unfair distribution of resources damages the environment, marginalized people and society as a whole.

To change it, talk to your community. Join a group that advocates for environmental protection, social justice and bringing nature back to society. Call on your city, state, and congressional leaders to urge them to take action. Also read the “Green 2.0” section of the Successful Diversity Initiative Report for specific ways you can achieve this in your workplace.

•Learn something new about nature and how you can protect the environment and yourself.

Clean air, water and soil are essential for survival, but research shows that many people don't have the basic knowledge about the environment and health to protect themselves.

In 2022, learn about your own impact on the environment. Read more For example, find out where to follow local land use decisions that affect your environment and your community as a whole.

You can also support local teachers and encourage them to include local areas in their lessons. Environmental issues overlap with many other topics, from history to health care. This website provides frameworks and materials for teachers to help students develop their environmental literacy.

Keeping in touch with the media discussing the latest research can raise awareness. You can also try incorporating facts and knowledge of the environment into your game night and team building activities.

Spend more time with family and friends in nature.

Research has shown that being in the great outdoors, including urban green spaces, can improve your relationship with nature and with other people.

Weather in nature can strengthen social cohesion. During a pandemic, many people find open spaces a place of relaxation and stress relief. Spending more time outdoors can encourage healthy social interactions, offset emotional stress, and encourage the use of these spaces to protect them in the future.

Here are some tools outlining best practices for improving parks and recreational areas in your area. You will also find opportunities to make outdoor environments more inclusive for families in different communities.

Thinking about our relationship with nature together and finding ways to protect the environment can help us better tackle the planet.
