A campaign was launched last week in which celebrities, business leaders, environmentalists, politicians and school kids around the world communicate their hopes for life on earth by 2020. These hopes are being conveyed as part of the 2020 Vision campaign launched by Planet Positive .
The campaign provides people with the chance to express their view of the future via online movies, illustrations or written word. The website allows anyone anywhere in the world to view visions and upload their own, stimulating debate around climate change.
The website also provides people with some reassurance and clarity on the innovation, infrastructure and products that will help them shift into low carbon, more sustainable lifestyles. There are ten online sections, which provide information on key areas of human life such as Home, Energy, Food, Water, Travel, Transport, Communication and Entertainment.
Steve Malkin, CEO of Planet Positive, said: “The next 10 years are critical for climate change. We want to provide a clear, positive view of how our lives can be better by acting on climate change. You can see the 2020 Visions of business leaders, politicians, scientists and celebrities through to school kids and upload your own 2020 Vision.”
Planet Positive is an environmental mark that certifies that a business, product or person is actively engaged in reducing their carbon emissions. The mark is based on a 4-step process of Measure, Reduce, Act and Report as laid out in the Planet Positive Protocol.
Be sure to visit their website to view people’s messages for the future. There are various celebrity messages and artworks online, as well as the opportunity to leave a message of your own.
“I wish for all nations to come together to have one vision. I wish for us to go back to living our ancestors’ lives, to own our land, to have trees. Indigenous peoples are really affected by climate change so I urge all nations to come together to have one voice.”
Moses Mopel Kisosion, Member of the Massai Tribe in Kenya
