Don't wait for UNESCO, Everyone is Responsible

Pretty often we wait for someone to do something for everyone. Everyone is aware that the world is battling a new global problem every single day and it is fighting a losing battle against numerous impending issues. The issues are so pertinent that the mere sustainability of our planet has become a big question.  I am not explaining the global issues here because we have so many problems that it is nearly impossible for me to explain it in one post. To mention few that we are facing are Anthropocene, Climate change, Sustainability, Safe Drinking Water, Hunger, Gender Equality, Human Rights and the list is endless. UNESCO is one global organisation that strives to fight global issues and they are doing their best. However, we can't wait for UNESCO or some other organisations alone to confront these global challenges. You, me and everyone is responsible and ought to challenge these challenges in our small ways. We don't have to do something big to live responsibly and we don;t even need a lot of sacrifices. Living responsibly is as simple as switching your bedroom lights off while you are in the living room or even sorting our garbage and reusing plastic bags. If we all lived responsibly, the combined effort would be so powerful that we will be able to save our planet for eons to come. 

Truth: Peace is achievable and sustainable living/development is possible!
