We wish to highlight the vital role youth organisations in the development of young people in our continent.Governments, private sectors and institutions must increase investment in, facilitation of and support to Youth organizations multiple roles and contributions to society.
RECYCLING AND PLASTICS
While plastic pollution is prevalent in landfills, it’s not the only place where plastics cause pollution. As a matter of fact, 90% of all waste that is floating on the surface of oceans is plastic. That can be approximated to about 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile!
And, plastics in the ocean really harm the ecosystem. Over a million sea birds and over 100,000 marine animals are killed by plastic pollution every year. Furthermore, 44% of seabird species, 22% of crustaceans, a growing range of fish species and all sea turtles are known to have plastic in their bodies.
Plastic pollution is a major problem which must be dealt with immediately. If we don’t stop it now, we’ll only create a bad environment for future generations.
