As goldfish swim tirelessly around their fishbowl, are they aware that it’s a confined space? Like a fishbowl, our world is a fragile environment, vulnerable to pollutants. But unlike fish, we are responsible for keeping it liveable. Focused on short-term gratification, our society often fails to take action to respond to pressing environmental issues.
