China Bans Wildlife Consumption

China announced it will ban the consumption of most wild animals and severely crack down on the illegal wildlife trade to help prevent zoonotic disease outbreaks like the new coronavirus, which is rapidly expanding to other countries and has infected over 79,000 people. 

The decision, which was adopted by China’s top legislature, the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, sets the stage for further revisions to regulations on wildlife trade, live animal markets, and to China’s 1989 Wildlife Protection Law, which regulates the “breeding, domestication and utilization” of wildlife.

The Sustainable Development Festival 2020

After the success of the previous editions, and five years after the adoption of the UN 2030 Agenda, the yearly Sustainable Development Festival returns with its fourth edition, which will take place from May 20th to June 5th 2020. Thanks to the reputation acquired, and to the growing mobilization of Italian society on the themes of sustainable development, the event will represent a further step to encourage Italy to achieve the 2030 Agenda.

The Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS), that brings together over 230 organizations from the economic and social spheres, organizes the Festival together with its members and with the support of the partners and tutors, over a period of 17 days, as many as the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN’s 2030 Agenda. The initiative constitutes a single large-scale event, widespread and inclusive, comprising hundreds of events organized throughout the national territory. The Festival was created to raise awareness among growing segments of the population on social, economic and environmental sustainability, going beyond subject-matter experts, in order to foster a cultural shift in individual and collective behaviors, and to stimulate “bottom-up” requests that commit the Country’s leadership to comply with the agreements undertaken in the UN. Furthermore, the Festival wants to give a voice to citizens, businesses, national and local administrations, universities and civil society in order to foster dialogue, the sharing and comparison of best practices on the issues of the 2030 Agenda. The Festival is a unique experience at international level that allows to reach millions of people in Italy every year thanks to the participation of hundreds of organizations all over the Country, the active role played by universities and the opening of sustainable development “squares” in some major cities. This stimulates an unprecedented reflection on the future of our Country, of Europe and the world. In 2019 the Festival was selected, among over 2,000 projects, to be a finalist of the SDG Action Awards of the UN SDG Action Campaign, as an innovative initiative and a unique experience in the world.

2020 YOUNG LEADERS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

Currently our world is home to 1.8 billion young people between the ages of 10 to 24, the largest generation of young people in its history. Close to 90 per cent of this youth population live in developing countries. What is more, their numbers are expected to continue to grow, especially in the least developed regions. With such numbers, it is clear that sustainable development and peace cannot be achieved unless we involve young people and create the conditions that allow them to reach and unleash their full potential.  More info at https://un.submittable.com/submit
