Currently the world is facing escalation of environmental challenges thereby giving rise to the prominence of ecological sustainability as a beacon of hope for a more sustainable future. The campaign for ecological sustainability will help to curb the impacts climate change, environmental degradation, and loss of biodiversity.

Ecological sustainability promotes living in harmony with nature, where human activities are nature friendly and aimed at balancing the natural ecosystem. One of the main aim of ecological sustainability is the perseverance of biodiversity. The variety of life forms on earth is essential for there to be a balance in the universe.

Another key practice of ecological sustainability is the encouragement of renewable energy sources in replacement of fossil fuels. The major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions is as a result of the burning of fossil fuels for energy production. This singular act alone is responsible for climate change and pose a serious threat to the natural ecosystems and inhabitants. Let’s embrace renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric power in order to reduce dependency on fossil fuels.

Furthermore, the idea behind ecological sustainability is not complete without the management of waste systems and consumption pattern by man. Practices such as waste recycling, is very essential in helping to preserve the planet’s ecology. There should be responsible use of natural resources such as water, forest (trees), and minerals.

More campaigns for the promotion of ecological sustainability should be carried out. The education and awareness of the need for ecological sustainability needs to get to every nooks and craning of the world where man lives. The government needs to be aware of the environmental issues and intentionally drive policies that support ecological sustainability.

Conclusion: we are doing ourselves good by embracing ecological sustainability as it is necessary for us to preserve the planet’s long-term health. Our future generation needs to be born in a more natural habitats free from unhealthy chemicals and pollution. The only way is through committing to live in harmony with nature and responsible use of the earth’s resources.
