    Description

    The environment is omnipresent. It is everything and anything external to us that might have an impact on how we think, feel, and act. It is physical and social, natural and human made. It includes not just our immediate surroundings but also a kind of mental shell of spatially and temporally nested situations and contexts we carry around with us in the form of memories that condition our mental experience and outward actions. Likewise the environment is the subject of our thoughts and feelings and is changed by our individual and collective actions.
