SAVING THE PLANET: THE LEADING ENVIRONMENTALISTS
Denis L. Daigneault, Jean Chevrier,
The environmental movement, whose modern form began in the late 1940s and early 1950s, is a worldwide scientific, social, and political cause that has sensitized the public, governments, and industry to issues such as preserving the natural environment and combating climate change. Its advocates have promoted sustainable development in public policy and changes to individual behaviour to minimize human impacts on world ecosystems. Private citizens, politicians, scientists, non-profit organizations and individual advocates figure in this international initiative.
