Too many advertising, creative, public relations, marketing and digital agencies are still 'playing both sides' and treating their role as neutral. They have some clients for climate solutions and yet they also run campaigns for fossil fuels. The first step to changing that is honesty – for agencies to be transparent about who pays their bills. Our the ultimate goal is to divest creative talent from destruction.

In developing countries, most construction activity is done by masons with deficient technical knowledge and by self-builders. Basic training would have great potential not only to improve the quality of housing stock but also for CO2 mitigation.
The trade education centers operating in Nicaragua and Ecuador provide dual education for masons and builders, integrating classroom and construction. Youngsters and masons with only empirical knowledge are educated to be knowledgeable tradesmen.
The future at once holds great peril and great promise.The Earth Charter Initiative counts on a diverse, interactive, global youth network representing over 100 countries from around the world to promote and implement the Earth Charter locally and globally. Those active in the Youth Network have embraced and integrated the Earth Charter into their studies, work, and daily lives. Youth can further develop their capacity and increase their impact as leaders through engaging with the Earth Charter.
Join this webinar to learn about a new green product certification in Sri Lanka. In a project undertaken from 2017 as part of the 10YFP Trust Fund, the agri-food sector in Sri Lanka was focused on to establish more sustainable consumption and production practices. Improving access to information amongst consumers and businesses was a key aim as surveys showed a lack of awareness of sustainable produce among consumers, a lack of standards, and limited certification systems at affordable prices.
Our aim is to give a voice to the family farmers, to tell their stories through social media, and to share lessons of their experiences through familiar platforms.

Their stories will be recognised and their knowledge shared through Podcasts, Video, Blogs and downloadable tutorials that the next generation of farmers of the Global North and South can easily access.
