The theme for the fourth session of the UN Environment Assembly is “Innovative solutions for environmental challenges and sustainable consumption and production”.
Finding innovative and #SolveDifferent solutions to use resources more efficiently and sustainably should be our prerogative. Here are three starting commitments that you can take in your daily life that will benefit the environment.
Launched in 2017, the Clean Seas campaign works with governments, businesses and citizens to eliminate the needless use of disposable plastics and protect our oceans and rivers from a toxic tide of pollution that is endangering livelihoods and killing wildlife. The alliance now covers more than 60 per cent of the world’s coastlines.
Become part of a global movement and tell us what you are doing to turn the tide on plastic.
Illegal Trade in Wildlife is one of many threats to species, which include habitat loss due to land transformation for agriculture and development, human-wildlife conflict caused by animals and humans being pushed closer together as wild ranges disappear, climate change and overconsumption or unsustainable use.
At the heart of illegal trade is the unsustainable demand for wildlife and wildlife products, which in turn motivates both opportunistic poaching and harvesting and organized crime. These species and many others need your help.

Litter is everywhere. Soda cans, plastic bags, and cigarette butts litter the environment, choke wildlife, and threaten our planet. Litterati is a mobile app that helps in tackling this problem one piece of litter at a time.
Geotags provide insight into problem areas, while keywords identify the most commonly found brands and products. This data will be used to work with companies and organizations to find more sustainable solutions.
