In an environmental meeting they are calling for unity in the face of climate change

Speaking at the first session of the day, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Inger Andersen, emphasized that if all countries show greater convergence on goals such as avoiding fossil fuels and finding renewable energy sources, “the The future we all want will come true.”

“We can face the triple planetary crisis if we show unity in all environmental projects such as conserving and restoring nature and our land; “Keep harmful chemicals, pollution and waste out of our ecosystems and, yes, it is possible, out of our bodies,” he added.

Andersen emphasized the need to think more about planetary cycles and less about electoral cycles, thus fully achieving inclusive environmental multilateralism.

“We must fight this crisis together to create space for those who follow us, thereby creating intergenerational equity and helping young people to be stronger and wiser than their predecessors,” the policy says.
