#7BillionDreams … share yours!
This year’s WED theme is 7 Billion Dreams. 1 Planet. Consume with Care.
Dreaming is the first step towards actualizing a Future We Want.
Imagine what 7 billion dreams can do when they come true!
It starts with an individual action. That leads to collective power…and translates to exponential impact!
This year, the UNEP Goodwill Ambassadors have formed a Dream Team to encourage the global community to share our dreams for a healthier planet and to make pledges in support of the environmental Sustainable Development Goals focusing on the main things we consume and waste - water, food, energy and all natural resources like forests and animal products.
So this World Environment Day, join the Dream Team by sharing your dreams and pledges today. And then inspire others to do the same!
Your efforts will help the world consume with care for a healthier planet and happier people!
Meet the Dream Team
My dream is a world where sustainability is an attitude, a way of life, the GO TO, not a duty or hardship. It is a place where governments and business and educators make it easy for us to make choices that create a healthy planet and happy people. We all know that this dream can be realized if youth are empowered to unleash their potential.
My pledge is to empower the utilization of our greatest natural resource on this planet: YOUTH. Our youth operate freely from the restraints, boxes and lines of jaded adults, and therefore hold the key to true innovation and tangible sustainability. Their power propels us towards massive shifts in global consciousness and rippling waves of quantifiable change worldwide. I pledge to encourage their ideas, support their genius, and amplify their infinite potential.
My dream is to see an end to the demand for illegal wildlife products that is decimating many of the world’s most beloved species like elephants, rhinos, turtles, pangolins and tigers. #7BillionDreams
I will encourage all of my peers, fans and social groups to avoid buying any products that are contributing to the illegal wildlife trade and to pass it on!
I dream of a world powered exclusively by renewable energy.
I pledge to support Africa in its efforts to make renewable energy THE FUTURE SOURCE of access to energy on the continent.
My dream is of a pure ocean that continues to support life on this beautiful earth. In my dream waves carry energy, not marine debris, and high tide lines are filled with shells, not plastic. #7BillionDreams #AAOPlasticFree
I will reduce my use of single-use plastics and will support businesses that are leading innovation in product design to reduce their plastic footprint.
I dream of a world where all people, whether living in the cities or rural communities, have access to clean drinking water and that we all start thinking smart about the way we use the limited resources we have for a healthier planet and happier people.
I will conserve resources, including water and power, on a daily basis, and will encourage all of my peers, fans and social groups to do the same.
