This is the first post in my newest blog called Care For The Planet.
The purpose of this blog is two-fold.
First of all, like all bloggers on the web, I wanted to create a place where I could publish, promote and discuss my own thoughts, reflections and ideas on what I care about the most. In my case, it is our planet’s current environmental situation.
Through this blog, I hope to:
– contribute to promotion of environmental awareness through focusing on sustainable way of living as the only solution;
– argue that the sustainable living requires a person to adopt a certain mindset which, in turn, is a result of an intellectual, moral and even spiritual self-development;
– examine the influence of media and various environmental communication strategies on public opinion on this subject.
The second purpose – and in some ways it interlinks with the first one – I hope that with time, this blog becomes an environmental media web center with focus on various issues of current global environmental situation. Ideally, I would like it to have the same spread as, for example, some popular sport web portals. I would want Care For The Planet to become a place for people who share the same interest and passion for the environmental situation to read the latest media news, scientific articles, interact with each other through public debates, become familiar with progressive ideas and suggest their own ones, promote their own environmental blogs and websites, read the research bibliography and conduct their own research, and many more. It is not a secret that today people do feel lost, at times, browsing through an overwhelming sea of information available online, in search for an answer to a specific question or topic of interest. There is a plethora of environmental websites and blogs on the web, and all of them do offer some kind of useful information, but the multiple repetitions of the same posts that are constantly copied from one source to another makes the topic itself seem dull and dampens the enthusiasm of readers.
So please participate, contribute and use the materials on this blog to spread the awareness and share the knowledge.
