Join us to raise awareness on the impact our everyday choices can have on the ground.
Mismanagement of land, unplanned urban development, food loss and waste contribute to the depletion of resources on a major scale, including water, land, energy, labour and capital. At the same time, the greenhouse gas emissions are increased, contributing to global warming and climate change.
The decisions we make every day on what to buy, eat, drink, wear and how to travel – all have an impact on land resources.
