Topic: "My Role as a Citizen of Earth".

In the vast universe, we were born on this planet called Earth, where various cultures and ethnicities, all living things, and all of nature exist together. However, in our world today, we face numerous problems - environmental destruction, resource depletion, wars and conflicts, poverty, and many more--that make our future uncertain. Given this situation, what do you think is the best way forward for humanity? How do you wish to fulfill your role as a citizen of Earth?
