2017 Project: Environmental Protection

What is Environmental Protection?

Environmental protection is a practice of protecting the natural environment on individual, organization controlled or governmental levels, for the benefit of both the environment and humans.

Ways to Help

  • Identifying an environmental or ecological problem specific to one’s community
  • Each region in Florida is different from each other
    • i.e - Everglades and Pensacola
  • School Initiatives
  • Community Based Projects
  • Long-Term problems vs Short-Term solutions
    • Beach Cleanup vs Conservation Organization
    • “Awareness Day”

Both are helpful, but awareness days and beach cleanups only fix the problems on the surface. Starting a conservation club, for example, has a lasting effect.

  • Fundraising and Donating

Many organizations other than SGA have the ability to fundraise and donate money; our students have the potential to facilitate even bigger change.

  • “Environmental Concerns vs State Project”

Although Environmental Concerns is an existing project book category, it is different from Environmental Protection. The “concerns” aspect is more about bringing light to an issue within the world while the “protection” aspect focuses on action and the solution to said problems.
