17 GOALS THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD is the seventh book by public eco-activist Bohdan Krasavtsev. It is symbolic that it comes out precisely at the present time, when the planet Earth and all living things need decisive associations of people around the ideas of reconciliation and ecologically conscious life. We cannot exist without a healthy environment. People who believe that environmental problems are not a priority have probably not faced the real consequences of climate change, drinking water shortages, water pollution and dirty air in their lives. But if we imagine that every day on Earth, people of different countries suffer from serious environmental problems that have accelerated in recent decades, then we will understand that there are no borders on Earth. That is why we, the people, must unite. "I am always reminded of an ecological way of life by a thought I voiced to myself as a teenager - if we destroy the environment, we will forever lose culture and education - and human civilization will fade into oblivion," says Bohdan Krasavtsev. Mankind has created so much beauty during its existence on this amazing planet - so we have to worry about nature: for the sake of every green corner of the Earth, and for the sake of animals, fish and birds. And for the sake of people, and for myself.
