Key Question: What would an ethic of care towards the environment look like?

In my personal opinion, ethic of care means that helping or thinking deeply about someone sincerely. To create an ethic of care, people would require some experiences that related to themselves directly. For example, just knowing something cannot be called as one actually experienced it. At least they should have some personal relationship in a direct way of physical or mental. Furthermore, the most important thing is that caring something depends on one’s mind. In this sense, people should have a mind of willingness to care for the environment where they currently live. It is because most people would not want to lose the environment, which is also their home, as a result. In the current society, I already can see that plenty parts of the environment have destroyed by people, through the product of environmental pollution. To prevent it, people should start from the basic things, such as recycling, and buying as much as one eats so that food is not going to be wasted. From this change of act, there is an advantage. As the number of individuals who keep the solution increases, the environment will stop to be getting worse, and even more, it will get better. However, there would be a side effect of the solution too. By people starts to care of the environment, the development can be slower down in many ways. Nevertheless, if people can control the middle point of advantage and disadvantage, we should adopt an ethic of care towards the environment.

Geography 12 – Reconnecting with location

Feb.3rd

As I was standing in the woods, I saw the sunshine, the trees, leaves and mud. I could deeply thinking about freedom because I was in the silence, only with sounds of the nature. Also, I felt as if I was deeply connected with the nature. All the compositions of the walking road surrounded by trees interested me with the fresh air, the nice green view and the soft mud. To not use my phone to take photos and videos of the beautiful view was the only difficult thing to me.

Feb.4th

At Downtown Poco, the mood was totally different from yesterday. Car noise, people talking, and the whole atmosphere was busy. I saw many artificial things, such as cars and buildings, and people walking. It was not easy to think deeply about something, and I felt awkward. In different way of feeling with yesterday’s, which is peaceful, the Downtown made me feel awkward so that it is harder to not use phone. I absolutely felt my feelings, thoughts and actions changes depends on where I am.
