Hi every body,
I am not sure about the following sentence: (is the "the" needed)
"we want to promote a respectful behaviour towards (the) natural environment"
It´s all about defining/non defining noun...but I can´t see it now.
I would take out the "a"; it sounds like you just want to promote ONE respectful behaviour (i.e. not littering or something else). Assuming you're speaking more generally, this sounds more natural:
"We want to promote respectful behaviour towards the natural environment".
