Conservation and Local Self-Government
The phrase “think globally, act locally” by Barbara Ward and Rene Dubos is a timeless environmental slogan. Acting locally is just as important for protecting the global environment as it is for regional pollution prevention and conserving a livable local environment. For example, introducing renewable energy to arrest global warming, restricting private vehicle use and expanding public transport systems, and waste reduction and recycling are all actions in which municipalities play the key role, and therefore require community-level citizen participation.
