DR.Ahmed Hany:The Pillars of the Environmental Balance

Professor of Allergy, Chest and Environmental Medicine

The environmental balance is essential for sustainable development. One can define it as the decisions and actions taken by the Sociosphere to adjust the Technosphere operations while using the Biosphere resources to achieve welfare for the community by using the renewable resources and controlling the use of unrenewable ones so that the next generations rights to live and develop are kept and the goals of the sustainable development are reached.

To keep the environmental balance in the future and to achieve the goals of sustainable development there should be a vision for the future that is devised by experts from all science branches that leads to strategies and policies that serve the balance between the three components of the environment.

Experts found the best method to meet the future needs if to create it and devise channels that lead to it.

Hence the authorities should guard the environmental balance and strengthen it as long as the development plans are executed and feed that balance with more strength with each future development plan.

The political will in the Sociosphere is essential and to support this will any community should have a culture that convince the population and move them as the Technosphere with its powerful influence may obstruct the path preferring the rapid financial profits of the continuous social and environmental gains.

The more the Sociosphere uses education, culture, media and social media to let people know and discuss the environmental issues the more the political will is stronger to plan and to issue and enforce laws that control the environment fairly.

Food production and healthcare are the most important pillars that the Sociosphere should secure to have loyal population that could be moved to further support the environmental cause.

The media and the social media are of due importance to discuss the importance of environmental protection especially in the developing countries.

Focusing of how environmental protection is important in improving the quality of life and help to achieve the national goals of sustainable development is not an easy task especially when education and culture systems need to be reformed so that what people learn serves their cause on one side and the national cause on the other side.

The green economy and the ability of citizen to participate project whether governmental or private is the cornerstone of the sustainable development.

One of the important duties of the Sociosphere is ensure that there zero corruption environment to encourage the participation of youth in the projects.

The financing systems should put the reduction of pollution and the less expenses on healthcare as long term profits. To encourage green production the government may use methods like tax reduction or the permission to pollute at extra fees.

The environmental protection and pollution reduction is the net result of all these efforts and the duties of the Technosphere is to shift to less polluting operations and methods of production within the frame of a long term strategy,

Environmental activists chose to confront the Technosphere from the beginning in the seventies of the last century.

The international situation had been taking the sides of the giant companies not to reduce the unemployment with its impact on security.

The ideology of the environmentalists should change from confronting the Technosphere to negotiating with it to reach a compromise the keep production and employment with less pollution and allocating parts of the research expenses to reduce pollution.

The conclusion:

To have sustainable development there should be a vision and strategic planning that draw a picture of the future and clear methods on how to achieve it. To mention the pillars of the sustainable development one can enumerate them as:

1-     Political will
2-     Food production
3-     Good healthcare system
4-     Educational and cultural system that support the environmental ideas and sustainability
5-     Green economy and devising new methods of financing
6-     Media and social media that continuously clear ideas directly and indirectly
7-     Zero tolerance of corruption
