SEMBANG@WWF IS BACK!
Nature. It provides us with everything from fresh air, clean water to the food we consume for our survival. Without nature, not only our basic needs are threatened but our environment, economic, social and health will also be affected. In a report presented by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we have approximately 12 years before facing irreversible damage caused by climate change. Yet, we are still utilising natural resources faster than the Earth can replenish. Our current consumption pattern globally would need 1.7 earths to sustain.
Business cannot be as usual. Loss of nature is continuous despite efforts to reverse it. The Aichi targets set by the Convention on Biological Biodiversity will end in 2020. Therefore, we need a New Deal for Nature and People (NDNP) for both humans and nature to co-exist and thrive. Business, government sectors, individuals and civil societies need to be part of the transformation, urgently.
NDNP is a mission to halt and reverse the catastrophic loss of biodiversity and put nature on a path to recovery by 2030. We would like to invite Malaysian youths to come together and share your personal views on the New Deal for People and Nature through our storytelling platform SEMBANG@WWF 2020.
