Why is World Ecology and Ecologists Day celebrated?
The November 1 World Ecology and Ecologists Day is celebrated, with the purpose of recognizing Ecology as a scientific discipline, valuing the work of professional ecologists and making humanity aware of the importance of maintaining a harmonious relationship with the environment in which lives, ensuring its care and preservation.
What is ecology?
Ecology is a science that studies the interrelationships between living beings and with the environment where they live. It seeks to understand how organisms affect and are affected by the biotic and abiotic environment. It is a science of synthesis that includes many disciplines, to understand the complex networks that are generated in an ecosystem.
Ecology has acquired global relevance, as the consequences of human impact on the environment are becoming more and more notable. For this reason, ecology has a fundamental role today, since it allows us to know how the elements of nature interact with each other and achieve an understanding of environmental problems to know what the next steps are.
The importance of of ecology in global decision-making.
World leaders adopted a set of global goals known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement to protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. To achieve these goals, everyone has to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and all the people who inhabit this ecosystem.
How can we act?
From Vegaly we want to take advantage of this awareness day to invite them to connect in a more loving way with our surroundings and reflect on how we can continue to improve our habits and help more and more people decide to do things in a more harmonious way with our health and the environment.
You can also visit the website of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to know in depth all the objectives that are being carried out in this regard and to be able to act with information and tell everyone about these objectives.
On the other hand, they can also join WWF, the largest independent nature conservation organization. An environmental NGO with a presence in more than 100 countries, including Spain.
