One Earth


“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”
– Henry David Thoreau

The Project “One Earth” was all about nature’s beauty, what we have done to it and what we should do. The general biological world is very pleasing to the unaided eye. The truth of beauty applies in the biological world no less (probably more) than in the physical world. I believe it is a good and accurate definition. We started conveying and making you all aware from the 22nd of August 2022 and continued telling all throughout 2 months via the social media awareness campaign which consists of 13 posts in total.

One Earth” ව්‍යාපෘතිය ස්වභාවධර්මයේ සුන්දරත්වය, අප එයට කර ඇති දේ සහ අප විසින් කළ යුතු දේ පිළිබඳ සියල්ලම විය. සාමාන්‍ය ජීව විද්‍යාත්මක ලෝකය අනාරක්ෂිත ඇසට ඉතා ප්‍රියජනකයි. අලංකාරයේ සත්‍යය භෞතික ලෝකයට වඩා අඩු (සමහර විට වැඩි) ජීව විද්‍යාත්මක ලෝකයේ අදාළ වේ. එය හොඳ සහ නිවැරදි නිර්වචනයක් බව මම විශ්වාස කරමි. අපි 2022 අගෝස්තු 22 දින සිට ඔබ සැමට දැනුම් දීමට සහ දැනුවත් කිරීම ආරම්භ කළ අතර, සම්පූර්ණ පළ කිරීම් 13 කින් සමන්විත සමාජ මාධ්‍ය දැනුවත් කිරීමේ ව්‍යාපාරය හරහා මාස 2ක් පුරාවටම සියල්ල පැවසීමට අපි කටයුතු කළෙමු.

திட்டம் “One Earth” ஆனது இயற்கையின் அழகு, அதற்கு நாம் என்ன செய்தோம், என்ன செய்ய வேண்டும் என்பது பற்றியது. பொது வாழ்வியல் உலகம் உதவியற்ற கண்ணுக்கு மிகவும் மகிழ்ச்சி அளிக்கிறது. அழகின் உண்மைக்கு இயற்பியல் உலகத்தை விட உயிரியல் உலகில் எந்தவித குறைவும் இல்லை. இது ஒரு நல்ல மற்றும் துல்லியமான வரையறை என்று நான் நம்புகிறேன். இதனை ஆகஸ்டு 22, 2022 முதல் உங்கள் அனைவருக்கும் தெரியப்படுத்தத் தொடங்கினோம், மொத்தம் 13 இடுகைகளைக் கொண்ட சமூக ஊடக விழிப்புணர்வு பிரச்சாரத்தின் மூலம் 2 மாதங்கள் முழுவதும் இவை அனைத்தையும் தொடர்ந்து பிரச்சாரப்படுத்தி வருகிறோம்.

Our initial post was a retelling of the story of the beauty of forests and their importance. A forest is much more than a collection of trees. Whether you explore the woods alone or join a guided walk by a naturalist, the forests are a place to indulge your imagination and discover the outdoors. Forests provide a home to the world’s diverse array of plants and animals. Thus, it is one of the precious resources proved by mother nature. Yet, despite our dependence on forests, we are still allowing them to disappear by doing many saddening disasters, the only answer we could give to this is a big NO! We beautifully turned this bitter page with the question “How can we save it?” via our 4th post by conveying the message of “Planting a hope for the future”

The salty smell that one can taste it dancing on one’s taste buds, the sound of waves applauding and hugging the shore, the water teasing our toes, and running back into hiding feels like running through a montage of life like in romantic movies, what wonders does it hold in its deeps? Our 5th post was about the pool of wonders, the ocean. All living forms on earth are owing to the sea which generates 75% of the oxygen on the globe. Yet, are we responsible enough to protect it? Every day thousands of marine life die and pollution is constantly being pumped out into these large bodies of water. Anything from overfishing to abandoning waste in oceans damages marine biodiversity. From the 8th post, we addressed the solutions to save marine biodiversity, the home to marine life.

Our 9th post was about the pillar of natural evolution which helps ecosystems to stay in balance, wildlife. If you have ever thought about the reckless rate at which man is exploiting nature, you will know that a change in people’s attitude is a need of the hour. Through our 12th post, we conveyed the message of taking essential steps to preserve wildlife without letting it be completely wiped out from this land. Nature is an unseen heaven. The alluring beauty and blessings for humanity are bestowed upon by nature. This call is for all nature lovers, Show the world how people can and must protect natural diversity through conservation efforts. In the words of Wordsworth “There is a spirit in the woods” which means that a true nature lover finds life in nature.

With this reminder, the project “One Earth” concluded its campaign on the 23rd of October 2022 with the hope that it did give everyone hope and inspired them to work towards a better tomorrow. When encountering any situation, the big picture of it all would be overwhelming but it would be easier to take step by step.
