Yeah coz if I think about what people say ,I guess you'll feel discouraged.
The founder of a company that supports green projects and companies that support and protect the environment.
I would become a researcher because I would be able to research ways that we could help stop climate change. I would also be able to track fumes from cars, so we know when it is a good time to switch to electric.
Protective_dusk I understand why you would chose this but don't you think the rate that humans are destroying our home planet that being a researcher would not be effective in the small time frame we have until the world is not able to support human life
I understand your point rhetorical_interaction, and humans are destroying our planet at an alarming rate. But still, a researcher could have many ways that could at least slow down climate change. For example, they could find something important, and then tell some climate activists, so then they can warn people. But, I understand where you are coming from.
I will create a foundation that educates youth and children about the problem of global warming and pollution, and encourages them to volunteer and participate in environmental work.
Focused_river your dreams are way to big. Excellent one.
I will become a teacher, and I will teach generations the seriousness of the global warming crisis.
If l luckily be the Head in my country,will make the use of renewable energy a normal part of live and stop the use of fossil fuels

Loyal_cheetah hope that is not I threat ,I love his dreams and hope they'll all come through.
I will become an environment watcher, I will monitor people's developments in caring for the environment.
The job I would do is planting trees, building wind turbines and solar panels so when other generations are older they get to have a better life with no climate change and a cleaner Earth. I like being eco friendly and trying my best to help out but as a school kid it's hard to make a real difference but the one thing that has kept me believing is the saying ' Every little thing counts '. Whenever I try help I keep that thought inside my head and one day I may do the jobs at the top. I don't care about earning money right now, all I care about is keeping our Earth healthy and we all should do the same.
Im very sorry mine is over fifty words :(
You don't need money for now but I know by the time school is finished you will need that money immediately. So, don't act as if you will be there every moment to take care of them every moment. 🙀🙀

I will become a Member of Parliament, and I will support the environment.
You have thought of every job wow
Yeah he's interested in making the world a better place.
I will become a farmer so that as i cultivate food for human consumption,i can also help the environment by reducing global warming because plants cool the environment when the get hot by releasing vapour which cools the atmosphere.
I will work as an expert for companies and industries to counsel them on how they can slow climate change and reduce the rate of global warming . I would also orientate them on the materials they use that increase global warming and what they can substitute those materials for ,in order for us to be safe.
I would become somewhat of a mind controller so that I could control the minds of all the top leaders of the world and of my country and force them to take climate change more seriously and establish rules that would benefit the environment.
I will work as an environmental scientist, but in such a way that, I will Eliminate Food Waste. Food waste in Nigeria occurs mostly in stores and at home—either because it spoils on the store shelf or before we can eat it.
Use Clean Energy.
Participate in the Democratic Process.
Use LED Lighting.
I would become a weather expert who studies the weather ahead of storms and natural disasters to warn people and tell them to be prepared
You can warn people and they don't act to that warning ⚠️⚠️ as we read in the bible the story of Noah who built the ark and people refused to enter and they died. So, don't put your hopes so high my dear friend. 🕵️🕵️
I would become a god and smite the humans who were cause climate change!
how will u become agod
I would work as a tree mediator, I would have a court that gave out permission before trees were cut down and i would ensure that it was for a good reason. I would also have tree friendly laws and policies.
I would become a programmer that will invent machines that will take care of disposable waste in the environment and invent drones that will plant trees instantly without difficulty and a software that will monitor people in community and their waste levels.
I will build a company in the future to develop renewable forms of energy (such as hydropower, geothermal energy, and waste flooding) as well as increase its efficiency in the context of green jobs.
I will work as a director of the Ministry of Agriculture to work on increasing the beautification of my city to make it greener and to publish awareness campaigns on the green environment and financial competitions, because agriculture contributes to slowing climate change.
would you only care about your city?
The person who starts over has to start from scratch. I will start in my city. Even other people follow what I do.
I would maybe invent a job called a skyviromentalist. They would be able to investigate climate change in greater depth and also spread word. The role is that they would pilot a plane into the sky and be able to tell more of the complications about it by air.
As I was young, my uncle always took me with him, as he is the director of the Ministry of Agriculture to help him and teach me how to increase the prosperity of the environment and he always tells me I want you to be like me.
How cool , what would your plans be if you were to work like your uncle?
vibrant_insect's that is so wonderful of u
I will become an ambassador, I will talk about environmental issues, not just politics, I will work hard to ensure that my country's contribution to combating climate, and I will also support its environmentally friendly projects, I will represent a country that gives the environment its rights
Well I feel the best job that would help in environmental safety in the future is being a teacher. I know it sounds lame but it is said that education is the key, as a teacher I'll be able to teach my students about the environment, how it works and how to preserve their sorroundings. I can then make them practicalize what has been taught by organizing occasional sanitation in the school and take them out to also clean the surrounding environment. When knowledge is impacted especially at a very young age the child learns not to forget but to practice what his taught but back here in Nigeria we don't have the opportunity of being taught about this at a very young age and so when we get older we don't see it as a priority. So the best way to preserve the environment is by teaching and I will love to be a part of the change.
I love your idea, distinguished_lake but can you try and shorten it to 50 words or less?
Wonderful , I agree with you very much.
A job I want to invent is workers who form a wall that protects the environment, that is, they act as a shield for it , they always think about the problems that we may face before they affect us.
Being a teacher for me is the best job because it's an easier way of impacting the lager community. As a teacher I get to talk to people especially children and I get to teach them core things and guide them through most of the choices they make. I can teach them about the environment, how it works and how to take care of it and we can practicalize it by weekly sanitation and community service this way the children learn to five to the society and not to destroy thereby !along them conscious about environmental safety. It will be easier to train young children than adults.
I will become an agricultural scientist in order to learn how to grow trees in a correct way and take care of them as well. By that, I have preserved the environment in the right way and made the trees give fresh air to the environment
I would like to be an astronaut, I'll orbit around the earth in a special machine and with my sophisticated tools that will detect pollution and inform those in the affected areas to take corrective measures.
I would become an explorer who goes on many expeditions around the world. I would see the condition of our Earth and give my findings to famous newspapers. Newspapers are known to exaggerate so if the climate is depicted worse than it is, people will work to save the Earth.
I wish to own a company in future who's major job will be plantation of trees, discouraging communities from cutting of tree and to control the emmision of carbon IV oxide. For example, in Nigeria we are cutting trees without replacement which is leading to rising temperatue .
I would also like to become a policeman, because from a young age I watch movies about them. I will try to understand people about ways to preserve the environment, and I will place the violation of everyone who throws trash in front of me.
I would become an artist/collector. This is so I could collect all the rubbish/litter from beaches and streets, then make art out of it. I would sell it for money, and then use it on the environment or invest in climate change, and ways to make the world better.
A job that will have a real impact on the environment would be a "Climate Guide ". Someone who has the influence and the power to tell people, especially young ones, how to contribute to slow climate change and prevent them from harming the environment. Taking their ideas would be helpful. it will enforce what we're building for the future.
I will be a philanthropist, just like Bill gate and donate environmental friendly equipments and appliances to as many people as i can to create awareness globally. To achieve this i will go into business
I would like to become an Energy conservation officer I would like to become this if I would because this will be helping the environment bye improving public and private commercial buildings with a range of methods including partial solutions education and promoting renewable energy sources

I will become a scientist in meteorology, science is the key to get rid of ignorance, and is a way that will enable us to discover what no one before now discovered any new things ..
My teacher inspired me in health and the environment, so I would like to be like him. When I grow up, I will be able to teach people more about the environment.
Thanks is nice
I was inspired by the cleaners, because they sacrifice a lot to clean the streets and preserve the environment, so when I grow up I will volunteer to become a cleaner, but my job will be to set up a company to support and encourage them.
My father inspired me, he works as a journalist and wrote many articles that support the environment, in addition to that he runs workshops for students and children encouraging them to recycle and so on, so when I grow up I will be like him.
That is very good
Do you have to be like your father to help the environment ?why not something else to improve the environment.
no brilliant_cloud's it is not what people say but it's all about u'r thoughts
congratulations focused_river's, the example u'r father has showed u has led u to success. good luck
I really liked your idea focused_river's. You are thinking outside the box
It's great to have a role model close to you
Sebastian Munden of Unilever inspired me, because he and his company are doing the best they can to support the environment according to their field, it has proven to me that the environment must be supported even if I am not an environmental activist.
I was inspired by the BNC team, as they tell us information I did not know about the environment, and they encourage us to express our opinion and do the best we can as individuals to protect the environment, so when I grow up I'll become a part of them, will you allow my volunteering?
I want to be a farmer because, if I become a farmer I will plant more trees and if I plant more trees the soil and human being under it, would be protected by the tree from too much sun.

i was i inspired from life and my scocity to become a pschologist and a nervesist the pschology help the enviroment by a new technology of studying subjects it use the experties of a nervesist to evaluate it dopmain amount in the brain by stressing out the neuron's of the gland to make the dopmain a limit hormone
after i limit the hormone it makes the economy in a good mood without using bad ways to be good for moments so then they say no for drugs .
If I was Prime Minister, I could help the environment by introducing bans on single use plastics and littering. This would reduce plastic pollution and keep the amount of waste in the landfills at bay. It is important that the right person is elected as leader, because the wrong person wouldn't correct the major issues in the right way.
I thought of a new job for the future. I call it "land Terra former", catchy I know. But this job has so much more than a catchy name. The goal is to use environmental specialists and advanced technology to reform barren and polluted wastelands into farming areas. This won't be easy as we lack the technology to do that today. But if this is possible then we could get rid of a decent percentage of the pollution in our planet. There are already artificial farms. Now imagine that on a much bigger scale. As technology advances this dream grows more realistic by the day. Granted it would take time, but evolution and improvement doesn't just come overnight.
I think this is a good idea.
I would like to be an environmental engineer . I would obtain, update and maintain plans, permits and standard operating procedure for environmental project
I want to become a teacher, because according to my opinion, the majority of people trust teachers and what they say and teach, for example if you explain and make everyone understand the issue of re-making the world greener and the climate changes and the extent of their danger, then most everyone can after that preserve the environment and the climate and its changes, whether they are children or Young or old, with the passage of time they will get used to it and may develop for the better.
I will become an eco-designer, whose role is to assist industrial companies to make their products ecological questions and friendly with the environment.

Today I want to talk about a profession that helps protect the environment and at the same time is harmful that helps ??????
How is that !!!
I'll explain to you, the profession is waste recycling. Waste recycling helps to protect the environment from pollution, and at the same time, unnecessary waste is disposed of by burning it, and this harms the environment a lot.
My job is to be a manager of a company that helps the environment and preserves the environment and encourages people to preserve the environment by making employees in the company hold meetings with people to preserve the environment and thus we preserve the environment
All jobs in society help the environment and have a positive impact on the environment, for example: the policeman regulates traffic and holds the culprits accountable, and this thing is good for preserving society from polluters of the environment such as drug dealers, and it regulates traffic and reduces noise on people because noise has a lot of risks to the environment and people. The teacher explains in his educational career a lot of issues related to the environment, for example, today we took environmental conservation in Islamic education, and this is a good thing to explain to students about ways to preserve the environment and what happens if we neglect it. So every job has positives or negatives for the environment.
I want to be a journalist so that I can direct people to the dangers and long-term effects of climate change through newspaper reports.
I am a Palestine Red Crescent volunteer, and we have done more than 56 volunteer work in the past year, and through the work we have done for the environment, we have built a large citywide park. For children, we designed and repaired it ourselves, we started with it from scratch, and this work that we have done has made many government institutions in the city work like us and help us and increase the rate of volunteering with us and this has a positive impact on the environment, so the more we increase, the greater the prosperity. I hope I will not leave volunteering in the future for an environmental and healthy city.
I will like to become an Environmental consultant. Environmental consultants are curious problem solvers who have keen attention to detail and organization. They often hold the hands of organizations and companies as they tackle a large number of environmental issues.
Life is a wide place of jobs. Every job has positives for the environment and has negative aspects. I always aspire to work in positive jobs to help the environment.
I would like to invent a job that does not exist in my city, which is to be in the future (environmental sustainability specialist) and this position is that specialists evaluate environmental practices and the organization's impact every year, and implement strategies to reduce environmental damage.

The environment faces a lot of problems, including the elements of the environment itself, the most important of which is human; man is one of the biggest factors that help in the environmental imbalance through killing animals, eliminating vegetation, blowing up vapors, toxic gases, pollutants in the air and other harmful acts Environment.
In the future, I could work as an "environmental engineer", where I will use advanced technology and systems to deal with environmental disasters and help maintain a safe environment.
I will become the president of my country, so that I will work very hard to help the environment and reduce climate effect
I will be a scientist that will study climate and help people with information
I will work with the global conversation group in building back greeners.i love intention of building back greeners and will be very grateful working with them
I will be a farmer that will help in cultivating land by planting of trees to reduce the effect of climate change
