focus on sustainable development and the overall treatment of the living world as a resource to protect instead of exploit. In order for these ideas to really take hold, international laws and legislations must be passed to promote sustainability. This would include everything from restriction of fossil fuel burning to the restriction of land use as nature preservations. If the global powers can reach a consensus on the implementation of environmentally conscious laws, then these attitudes will trick down into the commercial and community levels as well. It is possible for individual countries to start following the ideals of Ecologism. Countries should start by making sure they lay the framework for a sustainable future. If nations ensured that they had efficient and sustainable infrastructure, that would go a long way into helping reverse the environmental apocalypse. In class, we had a module about Israel, Egypt, and their water crises. If the Egyptian government invested money into energy efficient irrigation systems, that would begin to save water as soon as they were installed. This could potentially help their economy too. Farmers could potentially save money because they don’t have to have crops die from going without water. Ecologism therefore helps multiple aspects of a society, as it advocates for the protection of ecosystems, which in turn can have a positive impact on a society's economy. Even singular people can make a change by following the views of Ecologism. Just by doing simple things like recycling and not using single-use plastics can have a positive impact. Little decisions like these might not seem like much, but they all add up and help make the world a little “greener”. As more people begin to make greener decisions in their lives, they inspire 3

others around them. A chain reaction of cleaner, greener decisions can inspire others until everyone follows these views. This increase in overall awareness is why I think society can avoid environmental apocalypse. Though the damage of today may seem like it is too serious to bounce back from, with time and dedication, the next generations can work to restore our environment, and maybe even return nature to its former glory.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
