From Turkey

A question asked to a mother and her son after years: What is nature?

What is nature?

In fact, when we say Nature, different things come to mind in all of us. Some of us think flowers, insects, and some of us think mountains, seas, goals…

When the same question is asked years later, can we give the same answer again? Unfortunately NO..

Global climate change has affected the whole world and had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner. The net damage costs of climate change are likely to be significant and to increase over time.

If the necessary precautions are not taken by all nations, we will be exposed to its destructive effects day by day. Therefore, our next generation will never be able to meet the nature we know.

In this work, I have covered the approaches of a mother and her son, who lived in different periods, towards nature. I have illustrated what a mother and her son envision when asked the question of what is nature. If we can’t take action as soon as possible, a child will never know the nature his mother is calling in her mind.
