How do you personally define an ethic of care?
In my opinion, an ethic of care defines the action to help with caring for other people.
What would be needed to create an ethic of care?
The reason for an ethic of care would be altruism or conscience that humans usually have. Sometimes the belief of people who want to dream ideal goals can be that reason too.
What would we have to believe about the environment to care for it? How should we see it?
The small action from us can change the environment too.
If we want to act for protecting the environment, people at least need to care about the environment and deeply think about the way to fix the problem.
How would we act if we cared about the environment? – give scenarios
We can at least start from caring for the environment and the value of it. All side effects of environmental problems affect humans and the cost that will be invested to improve the problem will be uncountable so it would be better to take some time to fix it.
What would be different about the world if everyone adopted this ethic of care towards the environment? Benefits and drawbacks?
The big turning point will not be able to show up in a short time, there will be small changes. Then they can make a huge difference too. Although the ideal scenario always does not be the answer to the problem, it is still worthy to prepare for the little changes.
Should we adopt an ethic of care towards the environment?
The only action we can practice in reality for the environment does not need to be a huge event like inventing new green energy. We can start from some little actions that separating collection, using disposable cups, keep caring of the environment, and trying to find a way that we can actually practice. At least, it will be able to solve the environmental problems.
