The role of children in the UK forests
Keeping forests alive all over the world is a human necessity and not a favour that humanity gives to the world. Forests are much more than the mere place where people go to run, have a picnic or even walk the dog; they provide sustenance to the delicate balance between the human world and the wildlife world, protect the urban cities from chaotic disasters as well as cool off the planet and provide a never-ending source of oxygen.
Well, “never ending” is usually a figure of speech in human terms and according to human behaviour; a forest ends when the human love for money begins. Thousands and millions of forest acres have been extinguished into memories and photographic archives all in the name of “progress”, and now, at the brink of extinction we realize that the progress that we were all so busy with is the same thing that is rapidly brings us to becoming the next layer of oil.
Creating a culture of forest care and preservation is something that is part of the life in the United Kingdom; everyday children are enrolled in classes and extra curricular activities where they are taught of the benefits and importance of their own participation in the caring for forests. The role of these children goes beyond and further than the simple and mere watering of the plants and picking up after themselves in the park, it also involves participating in keeping forests safe by monitoring grown ups that carelessly smoke in these biological precious jewels
