Preferences: Water and Species Conservation. Ecosystems are deeply connected, no single element could be preserved unless it is planned from many sources of knowledge and from a large frame of space and time. Economy is among other socio-political aspects (including sciences) the global measurement of development, and indeed there is not prosperous economy without healthy natural resources. Citizens and policymakers should understand that preserving the balance and health of our Earth is more important than any short term profit. It is time to think globally, beyond geographic and religious boundaries, as everyone and every act is important towards a common goal of a harmless habitation of our planet. The love for our planet should be bigger than the love to ourselves, as we exist through nature, we are never alone, we are a product of evolution and the only species that carries on preservation as an option, not as an instinct. I am in the pursuit of internships, projects and community engagement experiences.
