Environment:
What's Up in #GENeva this week?


6 January - 12 January 2020

 

Back on track after the holidays

Calm week in Geneva for the environmental community that is preparing for the 2020 "super year" for the environment. Various international meetings this year will set the tone and agenda for environmental action in the decade ahead.

 

Banning single use plastic in Geneva

From this year, the City of Geneva prohibits the sale of disposable plastics at events as well as at sales points on public property. Offering free single-use plastic bags at retail checkouts has also been banned across the canton.

 

2020 is International Year of Plant Health

The United Nations has declared 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). The year is a once in a lifetime opportunity to raise global awareness on how protecting plant health can help end hunger, reduce poverty, protect the environment, and boost economic development. #PlantHealth
