I believe that everyone's voices should be heard and those who are and will be impacted by projects in the community should have more say in the decision-making process.
I envision a world where everyone's voices are heard and environmental issues are properly addressed and action is taken more quickly. Underrepresented and marginalized people's voices can be heard through monthly community meeting where issues in the community are discussed and more urgent problems can be addressed in more detail and taken up to the government. Also, there would be leaders in the community that can bring up issues up to those with more power in the government, without having any type of bias filter out certain issues, or corporations influence decisions made. Those in the community will also have a bigger role in helping solve problems, where they will have a part in projects addressing issues. In addition, there will be prioritization of using money from the community to help with the environmental issues, rather than on events. Also, in this world, actions would be immediately and efficiently taken when problems arise, needing no time extensions, but rather being able to come up with solutions before the due dates. Raw waste is not released into the environment and is filtered and modified in everyway possible to eliminate toxins from making their way into food sources. Also, water sources would be tested regularly to ensure everyone has safe and clean drinking water and everyone will be provided with clean water.
