Our Environment Focus Group

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth Genesis 1: 1

The Lord God took the human and put them in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it’ Genesis 2: 15

What do we mean by ‘Environment’ and ‘Environmental’?

‘The natural world of land, sea, air, plants, and animals’ and ‘Relating to the natural world and the impact of human activity on its condition’. (Collins Dictionary)

Why is it Important?

“The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.” Sir David Attenborough
