Humans are components in the environment that play the role in changing the environment and nature itself the most. The role of humans is to be the consumer, the creator and the annihilator of the environment. If humans can comprehend the impact which the environment can give to them; know how to consume natural resources frugally and efficiently; and have conscious to cherish and maintain the environment, then humans and environment can coexist in harmony and equilibrium.
