We are at a turning point in history. The challenges and opportunities are staring us right in the face, and it’s up to us to determine our future. To do this, we can no longer afford to ignore climate change. Instead we must embark on a journey towards sustainability.
A statement released by the Earth League has made this very clear, outlining our planet’s tipping points and the opportunity we have to advance our prosperity.
This year, two crucial global summits – one on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in September and another on climate change in December – will be held to set the course for our future. The decisions made by world leaders at these summits will be the legacy of our generation.
