My name is Imaan and I’m from Sainthamaruthu, Sri Lanka.
I’m pronounced she/her. I’m 18+ years old and I’m a self-taught mixed media artist. I have completed studies up to GCSE and now a full-time artist. I make various arts in various mediums. I love expressing my feelings through art and create awareness. I also make art regarding women and girls issues faced worldwide. I create awareness of arts, regardless of gender and issue. I want people to understand and stop perpetuating unethical acts and committing such offenses. Even if it is small, I want to make a change. I want people in my community to be aware of the situation around them and bring a limelight. I love sharing the message through arts because I believe art makes a huge difference in our society.
I’ve also been featured in women of the world organization last year.
Since the theme was about discovery I thought of forest.
Forests are being wiped out and trees are being cut down at a rapid rate. To meet the other needs of humans, we are losing sight of the bigger picture. People need to take steps to improve the forest cover rather than decrease it. The government must regulate the cutting down of trees. We must adopt roper methods which ensure the regrowth of trees. This way, we will be able to fulfill both the needs.
Furthermore, we must control forest fires. We must adopt the latest techniques which will help in fire fighting more efficiently. This will prevent further loss of trees and animals. Most importantly, afforestation plus reforestation must be practiced. The people and government must plant new trees in place of the one cut down. Moreover, they must plant trees in new areas to develop a forest.
In short, forests are a great blessing of nature. Various types of forests are home to a thousand animals and also means of livelihood for numerous people. We must recognize the importance of forests and take proper measures to tackle the issue of deforestation.
Forests give us a large number of raw materials for various products like paper, rayon, gums, medicinal drugs and more.
Forests are also a major source of employment for a significant population. For example, people are involved in their protection, harvesting, regeneration, raw material processing and more.
Moreover, forests are largely responsible for preserving the physical features of our planet. They monitor soil erosion and prevent it from happening. Further, they alleviate floods by making the streams flow continually. This, in turn, helps our agriculture to a great extent.
Most importantly, forests are a habitat for wildlife. They provide them with shelter and food. Thus, it is quite important to protect forests and furthermore enhance the forest cover for a greener and sustainable future.
