Preserving the natural patrimony is the most inexpensive and efficient environmental economics. The term natural heritage derives from the French "patrimoine naturel", the totality of natural assets, including those of historical, cultural or scenic beauty. It give us understanding the importance of natural environment: where we came from, what we do and how we will be. Our lives are connected to the landscapes of our daily lives, as well as we keep the memories of places we went. The destruction of these landscapes cause irreversible environmental damage, and are an insult to our memory, causing loss of quality of life.
Is a pledge to help 1 million families gain access to
sustainable energy solutions. Last month, Linkin Park pledged their support of
the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon's Sustainable Energy For All initiative.
To that end, the band and their non-profit organization Music for Relief have
partnered with UN Foundation and EarthSpark International to bring clean energy
solutions to families without energy access beginning in Haiti through Enèji
Pwòp (Clean Energy in Haitian Creole).
Enèji Pwòp was created by EarthSpark International, a United
Nations Program (UNEP) partner, to build supply chains and business practices
to support small-scale clean energy entrepreneurs in Haiti. Low-cost, efficient
and renewable energy technologies such as the solar light bulb, will save money
for Haitians over time and reduce health and environmental risks associated
with fire and kerosene.
