Theme for year 2020

 

 

 

Be the change,

Inspire the change,

Implement the change!


- Together for Climate Action, Better Future for Us and Next Generation

 

 

Our education, our schools, various organizations, several governments and also we as individual at personal capacity are working to bring environmental awareness and educate our near and dears to conserve our environment. Personally, working in my community, I feel that, majority people are well informed of the environmental concerns. However, people are not switching to greener alternatives and methods may be due to convenience, Costs factors, Reluctance etc. I have seen our TUNZA ambassadors have their own special areas of interest related to plastic, water, air, deforestation etc. What I feel is the need of the year is How to changes ideas to reality, how can we implement our plans. So I suggest the theme ‘Be the change, Inspire the change and Implement the change.’ In which we all can work on our areas of interests, by being the leaders and setting own examples thus inspiring others to follow and also the most important aspect of any change is implementing it in our community.

 

This year we entered with burning forests in the ocean, with Amazonian valleys, where powerful and evergreen Amazon forests once grew. Due to the disappearance of our green cover and unique representatives of flora and fauna, let us devote this year to the protection of forests and the prevention of any danger that threatens both the trees and the living creatures living on their crown and on branches. Prevention can not only consist of working with the public and organizing volunteer programs, but you can also innovate in fire-fighting equipment and new modern technologies for checking air and forest observations from a height, thereby not only increasing the productivity of fire services, but we can also monitor illegal logging and poaching.

 

Single use plastic bags, bottles or can need to be banned from everywhere around the planet. This has created the problem in terrestrial and aquatic organism in the planet. Another thing is the preservation of habitats of living beings on Earth. Due to habitat destruction organism are in the verge of extinction.

 

Almost all environmental campaigns all around the world are championed by the youth because perhaps we see what kind of future lays ahead of us and if something is not done now to secure that future, then it will be an omen for ourselves. With platforms such us TUNZA Eco Generation, a new hope is born and the actions of the youth could exhibited in the various opportunities offered here on this platform. I believe the earth is dying due our own influences on it, from the various forms of pollution to felling of trees indiscriminately, to illegal mining and all the others. It is education through the voices of the youth that could perhaps be the up lifter of brighter generation who cautious of the harm they could be doing to their environment through what they do.

 

There are several environmental issues we need to focus on this decade. Alone effort won't be sufficient to save our environment. We must be together and act for the environmental preservation. Change begins from us. We need to bring change in ourselves. We must be the change with eco-friendly measures in our daily life activities to protect our planet.
Climate Change is one of the biggest threats this decade. With the impacts being seen on wildfire in Australia, change in the rainfall pattern, we need to focus on the adaptation and mitigation measure of climate change. We need to be together and act for climate action.

 

There are three environment-related topics that I am most concerned about. The first one is sustainable exploitation of natural resources. I believe in a sustainable way of exploiting natural resources in order that our future generation can continue to make use of them. The second one is clean water. There are a lot of people all over the world lacking access to purified water. More steps need to be taken to provide access of clean water to everyone in the world, especially in Africa. The third and last one is air pollution. In the place where I am living now (Bangkok, Thailand), the air quality is utterly terrible due to smog from vehicles, factories and burning. This affects people's health in a dramatically negative way.

 

Global climate change, most commonly referred to as global warming, is a worldwide problem facing our environment. Global climate change is simply a rise or fall in Earth’s temperature over a period of time. Although this problem has natural causes, the true detriments come from humans and how we live day to day. Although many people have heard of climate change, there is not a big effort to fix this problem or to understand it. The best way to rectify this change to the environment is to help others recognize the causes of this problem and the effects they have on our planet.

 

The ravaging wildfires in Australia that has left thousands homeless and several dead should be the topic of the month. The worst hit nation with severe drought and hot weather is a glimpse of climatic change that is drastically affecting our planet. Meaningful discussions should be around addressing wildfires and arresting effects of climate change this month. Australia should serve as an example of where our planet earth is headed to.

 

As we are about to enter the second decade since the millennium, our battle for climate change has grown and is currently backed up with scientific studies, facts, and evidences. We sit down, discuss and show our undying support for this cause. I believe that the youth needs to be future ready and climate resilient.

 

It has already been 5 years since we adopted SDG, but the progress is very much slow and we have 9 more years to achieve 17 Goals. Hence, I believe Sustainable Development Goals must be the theme with major focus on Goal No.13 (Climate Action), Goal No.2 (Zero Hunger) and Goal No.17 (Partnership for Goals). I believe this theme will not only generate awareness but also engage more and more youths to work for achievement of SDG.

 

We could see many evidences of rapid climate change around us, such as shrinking ice sheets, declining artic sea ice, glacial retreat, decreased snow cover, global temperature rise, warming oceans, sea level rise, extreme events, ocean acidification to name a few. Sometimes I feel that we are not going to have our future secure and feel guilty, as there is not much that I or rather we can do to change it. We as global citizens can try to do our bit by reducing our carbon emissions and also demand others and governments to do the same. We need to show together to our leaders that we will no longer be tolerant to such actions and they need to react and act. The pace at which they are acting is too slow as there are all possibilities that climate change will blow us over. It is not possible for an individual to put a full stop to this. However, we need to hope and believe that there are chances to construct something better together. We do understand that climate change is harming the planet at a very increasing rate, and it may be harming our mental health too. Let us all fight together the climatic changes, heal the environment, and love the planet.

 

TUNZA is a platform where people can know about the factors degrading the earth and environment friendly activities. I personally have learnt a lot. Plastics use is a serious problem and its reduction is very important. For this one must need to feel their responsibility towards nature and should follow environment friendly options. In this way, minimal use of plastic may lead to sustainable and healthy earth. In 2020 we can initiate this plastic use reduction from our side and can contribute to create the happy and healthy earth.
