When I as was a young child back in the 1960s, my parents, indeed the people of my village, had knowledge about protecting the forest and the surrounding environment. I am not sure where they acquired this knowledge. Certainly there was little, if any, talk about “caring for the forest” and I cannot recall any campaigns about mitigating deforestation or protecting our environment. “Climate change” was not even a concept. However, it was simply an accepted, common practice that everybody has responsibility for taking care of the environment in which we lived.
