    Another thing to save the Earth is saving energy. Energy wastage will result in long-term problems because most of the natural resources are limited. To conserve energy, unplug all unused appliances and gadgets from their outlet. Using energy-efficient light bulbs and air-drying clothes are also ways to save energy.

    Small changes can reduce the energy demands of a home, such as LED lights, using average thermostats, and changing to energy efficient appliances.

    Trees serve a critical part in maintaining ecological balance. We can improve our environment by planting trees. We must also conserve water, a valuable natural resource. We must also refrain from polluting bodies of water. All-natural resources must be utilised with caution.
    Sunlight, air, water, and plants all contribute to the survival of life on Earth.

     We should focus on solar and renewable sources of energy such as solar heaters and panels. Take out the private vehicle or car only when required and prefer using the public transport.

    The government and individuals must come together to save the earth. We can make people aware of the consequences of not saving the earth. They can be taught ways and how they can contribute to saving the earth.

    What are some of the barriers that exist to women and girl's equitable participation or representation in your community? Do you experience these barriers?

    Practical barriers include poverty and scarcity of economic means. For women this means a lack of time, a lack of appropriate, safe and accessible infrastructure, and no adequate clothing.
