"We are only borrowing the earth from our children", according to a famous Native American proverb. As true as that may be, we still show very little consideration for those who will come after us. Habitats are disappearing due to the destruction of natural spaces, and with them an increasing number of animal and plant species. Pollution from traffic, industry and outdated heating systems contribute to the global warming of the climate.
However, we can all play our part in counteracting this process, both in our private lives and at work. Conventions, conferences and corporate events can be designed to conserve natural resources and produce less waste and fewer greenhouse gases.
