First of all, it should be born in mind that if the nature vows to destroy us in a minute nobody can stop it no matter how much of an economic superpower you are. Economic development can give us a better life in terms of money, comforts, the standard of living etc, but in the long run we are going to pay for it if such developments are being made compromising with the ecological balance. The leather industry, for example, derives its raw material directly from the biota caring little about them. The mad race forl being industrial, nuclear & defence superpower is polluting terrestrial, aquatic and aerial ecosystem to an irreparable extent. Rather than putting efforts in agriculture and building agro-based industries, we all are busy making arms, weapons to kill each other. A common sense that is highly a need of the hour is that no matter how much economically developed we are, we need to eat rice and chapatti and not software and missiles for our mere survival. Delhi, the NCT of INDIA earns a rare distinction of being the most polluted city on this planet. Air is no longer safe to breathe in- a direct consequence of reckless economic development. More than 99 percent of all species, amounting to over five billion species, that ever lived on Earth are estimated to be the extinct-another fruit of mindless industrialization. Global Warming and polar ice melting is posing a great threat to entire mankind.

Sustainable development and co-operation among the nations is a need of the hour. Following a strict climate change related protocol and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels is what should be exercised immediately. Govt policies to adopt green initiatives should be made legally binding all throughout the corporate sectors-both public and private.

Economic Development has happened because our planet has supported it till now. But because of the race for gaining superiority over other we even destroyed the equilibrium of nature. If this prevails we will be heading towards a doomsday very soon.

The earth doesn't belong to us, we belong to the earth. How can we dwell out ecology for our materialistic happiness? No this shouldn't happen! unless our nature around us is safe and clean we can stay still more years on this earth. Firstly human should get out of fantasies and put end to their immense love on the materialistic world. Nature is the mother of every spirit here! Indeed at the start of the human race, nature nurtured man and learned him how to survive. But what's going on, he destroyed the ecology around at the cost of his unnecessary wishes and everlasting wants. Yes! we do require economic growth but it has a limit. In earlier days, there weren't any computers, TV's, Automatic machines, spicy foods, AC restaurants, still they are people who are happy and there are people who are anxious about inventing and tried to unfold many nature secrets who made us move from spirituality. Poaching elephants for ivory, leather tanning, hazardous industries. A Lot more which taking away ecological protection. Really do we need an automatic washing machine. We don't but we do! People in earlier days were very strong enough to do their work and lived long healthy life. There is no end to man's inventions and his rational ideas. Now it doesn't happen suddenly or eventually to bring out gone prosperity of ecology but we have to take care out whats left out. I would like to finally conclude that until how much nature accepts to give its treasure, take it and use it and don't go beyond! keep green, stay safe.

In my point of view, I support for both ecology and economy, because we can't have the right to destroy the ecology it's not created by us. Coming to economy India to be an developed country their should need economy. So it's in our hands to balance ecology and then economy too. If we protect our environment then their will be no need to waste our money for the hospitals. Our motherland and we have the right to protect it and encourage others to do So.

Hello everyone,

Thank you for giving me an opportunity to share my views on this topic, economic growth is more important than ecological protection.

Well, My opinion is totally different because we all are aware of the climate change that the world is facing today. We are evolving from nature. A healthy environment led to the development of a healthy mind. A good healthy environment will lead to good economic growth. If we go against nature for the development of industry, road networks, it will be reverse consequences on the life of humans in the form of disaster.

There should be a balance approach between economic growth and ecological protection.

- A healthy ecology will provide a base for a healthy economy.

- Once there is an imbalance in the ecology, automatically the economy suffers.

- Trading and business will be hampered in a drought-stricken or a tsunami hit the country.

- Mother earth has limited resources and should be judiciously used.

- Ecological protection is more important than economic growth.

Hello everyone,

As per me, we cannot decide the preference between ecological and economical growth, as both presume to be equivalently important.

Let also not forget that we all have come here as candidates for the job interview, i.e., we all are here to earn money, and why? Because we all want our economical growth. If we will individually grow economically then only the country will grow its economy.

And only a well economically grown country will be able to protect its ecology to the fullest.

So without economy there is no use of the protected ecology alone as it will also have necessities which need economy to grow.

Also, everyone must have come here with a vehicle releasing harmfull pollutants which had already disturbed the ecology, and all this just to grow our own economy.

So clearly, no one here is preferring ecological protection over economical growth.

Hello everyone,

According to me, Although economic growth is important but ecological protection is to be preferred first rather than economic growth. Because our actual growth of economy comes from ecology. It is good that our country is under development process. There are several constructions happening in different sides, increasing transport system etc for more economic growth. But most of them are created by destroying trees or forest. I do not agree with this type of decision taken by the government. Because we increase our economic growth by harming the nature. We do not care about it. As a we are facing a different kind of disaster and global warming is an alarming situation for us that indicate our less attention to nature's component. Carbon-di-oxide also increases due to deforestation. Most of the people are suffering from several symptoms or diseases.

Now my point is, what will be the need for economic growth if we fail to protect ecology. Because most of the material is used to making an economic growth, come from natural resources. If we can't survive in nature then there will be no necessity of economic growth. There are several ways to develop our growth without hampering a nature like we can use biogas instead of using petrol, wind power and solar power for electricity etc.

So my conclusion is that we should be protecting our nature besides developing our economic growth.

Hello Everyone,

In my views, ecological protection is more important than economic growth. What I feel is that there will be no longer economical growth if there is no ecological protection after some years. It's just that we all are here for giving interviews so that we will be an asset for a company and we will increase the production of a company which will raise its economy. Frankly speaking surely we all mostly focus to have more income, but when we analyse the main scenario of production we would see that most of the big industries are based on agriculture and natural resources on a root level. So if there will be no sustainable development then there will be an imbalance between the economic as well as ecological development which will hamper the whole economic growth because after 15 to 20 years there will be no natural resources left for any economical growth.

Good evening everyone.


We humans have evolved from nature land is known as our mother, we breathe, eat, sleep and are fully depended on nature.

There's no other way around we can stay alive If we lose oxygen.

There are many things which can be bought but not life, sleep, hunger, etc.

Money can give us everything but not life.

Money can give us a bed but not sleep.

Money can give us food but not hunger etc.

Ecological protection is the most important thing because it consists of BIODIVERSITY, WATER, DEFORESTATION, POLLUTION, CLIMATE CHANGE.

Ecological protection also provides us with economy +growth.

But only focusing on economic growth will result in nothing but a huge lose anyway around.

Thank you.

I think environmental protection is the first priority that should be maintained in a society.

It is because, healthy environment will make healthy society and healthy society will play a significant role for the economic growth of the nation.
