With current over-consumption, ever increasing populations and limitations on production, Earth’s resources will not sustain Mankind unless something is done to change the way we abuse and over exploit our Planet. The damaged environment and depletion of resources, pollution of the seas and dangerous air quality in some of our major cities will increase poverty and hardship for those least able to cope with it. It will also affect the ability of future generations to enjoy the beauty of Nature or perhaps even to survive.
If temperatures exceed the 2 degree Global warming limit, it is forecast there will be more natural disasters, refugees, increased poverty and famine around the World. In order to stop this, governments, business, NGOs and individuals need to work together and take more responsibility for their own actions that can affect sustainability. Implementing the SDGs will improve lives, protect the Planet over the next 15 years and reduce the risks to future generations.
You therefore MUST care and do what YOU can personally and motivate others - work colleagues, friends and family - to participate and to do what they can too. You must also push your politicians at Local and National level to do what they have promised so that the SDG targets can be achieved and help us create a better, fairer and safer World for all.
There is no Planet B!
