2021 Take Action on Plastics Pollution (11-13)

You can be the change you want to see in the world! Watch this video.

We believe in the Youth´s power to act and mobilize others. Young people are key to innovative solutions suggesting a bottom-up approach to tackle the challenges of our time. The youth are the future leaders who can start contributing today. Therefore, we are inviting you to participate in this Challenge.

Plastic pollution is a major environmental problem which requires thinking together and acting together. In every crisis there is an opportunity and therefore, we should ensure that when tourism restarts again after COVID-19, the sector is leading by example in the sustainable use of plastics.

By participating in this Challenge, you will:

  • Encourage tourism businesses, policy makers and travelers to take action on plastic pollution
  • Raise awareness of innovative solutions that tourism businesses, policy makers and travelers can implement to address plastic pollution
  • Spread the word about the importance and potential to reduce, reuse and recycle plastics
  • Contribute to the implementation of SDG 12 on Responsible Consumption and Production and other connected SDGs with environmental focus
  • Call upon tourism stakeholders to restart tourism after COVID-19 prioritizing the sustainable use of plastics to prevent plastic pollution
