Bozok : It is important to raise awareness of young people about global warming
Bozok said that “In the project carried out, it is aimed to raise awareness of individuals about global warming from a young age and inform young people to prevent the negative effects of global warming in our environment” and pointed out that it is necessary to leave a livable world to future generations and all living creatures by producing solutions to problems such as climate change, depletion of fresh water resources, temperature increase, which are the negative consequences of global warming.
