The world is becoming more crowded, more consuming, and more connected. The mixing of traditions, cultures, industrialization and different social structures has created chaos for the environment. Therefore, it becomes the necessity of contemporary times to study and understand our environment with deep knowledge rather than a superficial approach. It has become one of the emerging and rapidly growing disciplines as modern-day technology and human actions are slowly ruining and draining the planet’s air, water, and soil quality.
Environmental Science is important because it teaches human beings how to conserve the environment. The environment makes up and influences every aspect of life on Earth. The study of environmental science helps to enlighten the world about global and regional issues such as Global warming, ozone layer depletion, climate change, desertification, biodiversity, and various social issues related to the environment. Environmental education provides a tool to handle the fundamental issues and eradicate the problems related to pollution and mismanagement of resources.
