Climate change sensitization

Social media is a gift given to our generation, an opportunity to explore the outside world, to be part of the dynamic momentum of networking. It all depends on how we use it, what we use it for and why we use it. I use to have this notion that people you meet on social media are out there to break you, but not anymore. I have met amazing people online, who are gearing me.

 My adventurous life was brought to the minimal. As I grew older, I was accustomed to the normal activity of life, no sense of adventure. The moment I leaped out, and I discover, what is made for me. That is the point of revolution.

We should use the social media to start that change, every youths should join the force for climate justice, we need to vibe that spirit by creating a cue, a reward then the habit comes up. We need to adopt the technic for business sales used by leading business ventures. The cue is the public pull, the media campaigns, animated presentation of climate change, strategic branding of recycled products, grassroots learning about climate change. For people to know what their actions is doing to degrade nature and future risk attached.

The reward: carbon free air, green sustainable economy, mitigation of fossil fuel consumption. But the reward people want to see is that direct incentive, the feeling of satisfaction, healthy living, access to clean water, spending less while engaging in renewable practices and buying renewal product, and fresh air from green plants.

Incorporating the habit of sustainable practices into our day to day lives, stop littering, stop deforestation, planting new trees, be ready volunteers to spread the word of climate justice. I think that evolution has taught us to follow safer paths, seek comfort over excitement and avoid choices that seems to influence our existing nature, which we are not ready to break free from.

 The North Africa nation revolution started on social media, and so many others. This has shown the power of social media to rejuvenate youths actions. Many youths, especially in Nigeria are not ready to live up to tasks. What cause this sense of passionless life and how can we liven up our dull existence?. The social media can be use to pass messages through graphics, documented discoveries, illustrations and online discussions. To get a higher frequency the respective stakeholders need to imbibe this into their practices and relate the result to the public.

We all want to do great things, but continues to live in one pattern of life and hope to see the great things happening. Sometimes I feel like people love to have everything planned out as they grow up. When it now turned around, we are thrown in despair, and begin to blame others. We yearn to live, we want to live more and more everyday. It's like we simply just don't know how. I know what I want, am focused, I want to build that movement of climate justice. Will you join me?.

The Emphatic Response

Do I want this? Do I desire this? Do I see this things happening?....

Sometimes we don't even know what we want, we just find ourselves doing what we do, with no logical explanation about how it happened. What happened could be as a result of our inner mindset either positive or negative, with an apparent description of our motives.

Many of us live our lives unconsciously, there's is no distinctions, we do things because that's how we perceive the society to be, we follow the mother sheep.

You bought a sachet of water while walking on the street, you just litter the sachet, when you're done gulping it. You consider it a reflex action!.

Throwing away refuse in the gutter when it raining. What an impudent act! i just saw a woman did that and believe me it very a common act.

We are what we repeatedly do, "Excellence then is not an act, but an habit", -Aristotle

Many people live in the shadow of their own self, when passed through hard surface they are deformed. Habits shape who we are, what we frequently engage in becomes part of us, what we engage in becomes our embodiment. We need to be conscious of what we do, to be sagacious. I try to be conscious of what I do, I try to understand the chemistry behind things that happened around me.

Everyone is surrounded with layers of veils, it's take a conscious mind to know that, when you're are aware of that, there is this curiosity to look through that veil, what you see create a vibe to continue looking through. Each layer teaches you a lesson, each level is a life course. You begin to ask yourself questions, there's this hunger for more.

We need to be conscious of our environment, to change our reflexes and habit towards our environment, some still need to be oriented while some know the implications but considered their actions not to be salient. I want to live life well, I want to enjoy the free nature, I want to the best for my people and I want to be that change, we are waiting for.
