During the English lesson our educators often initiate and facilitate debating discussions on national and global environmental issues. The aim is to help us students understand the importance of the environment and how it affects us. We are encouraged to read articles and research about some environmental topics and then we discuss them in class. We also prepare material on the topic like presentations, charts, drawings, posters and articles to help us reflect on our role as responsible, global citizens. My interest in this topic began during one of these discussions. I chose to write an article, and then my teacher encouraged me to participate in the YRE competition.
