Today, Wednesday, March 31st, is the Global Day of Action that calls for actions across the world as people demand that their leaders go beyond recovery and reject false solutions to climate change.
As decision-makers develop recovery policies and investment plans, this day of action challenges leaders to go beyond recovery to a future where zero waste practices drive clean air and water, more and better jobs, and a healthy environment for our families and communities, where nothing and no one is wasted.
According to the GAIA global network, “As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc upon our communities, our decision-makers are promising that a recovery is around the corner. But the COVID-19 crisis has exposed how unjust, undemocratic, and unstable our current system is. It is not enough to simply recover.”
