1. Description of Our Team
Our team consits of three people – Georgi, Iveta and Tsvetoslav. We are all 18 years old. We chose this category, because the ecological problems of the World concern all of us. None of us should live day for day. We should all think about our future and the future of the World. In our view that the biggest problem concerning humanity is saving our environment. Is there a critical point after which there is no turning back for humanity and the World? That is the question. We united our strength to create this site when we found a site on the internet related to environmental problems. We realized that this is a step that every person should take so that we don’t reach this critical point. Georgi – “I am interested in studying web design. I joined this project, because I am concerned about my children’s future.” Iveta – “I am interested in studying physics. I am curious how technology effect nature.” Tsvetoslav – I am interested in studying medicine. My concern is how we can protect nature and by doing that improve the quality of people’s lives.” A big help to us were our teachers Dimitrinka Georgieva and Paraskeva Raikinska who helped us with the making of the web site and with the translation of the texts from Bulgarian into English.
