The World Came Together For Environmental Action And A Bold Blueprint To #SolveDifferent

After five days of talks at the Fourth UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi, world leaders set the global environmental agenda.

Ministers from more than 179 United Nations Member States delivered a bold blueprint for change, saying the world needs to speed up moves towards innovative models to promote sustainable food systems, tackle poverty and share environmental data.

Altogether, a record 5,000 participants attended, including five Heads of State and Government, 157 ministers and deputy ministers from 179 countries. The Assembly included the Speaking Youth to Power event, the launch of the Sustainable Fashion Alliance, the Science-Policy-Business Forum and the Sustainable Innovation Expo.

Twenty-six resolutions have been adopted on the environment-poverty and gender-environment nexuses, sustainable consumption and marine litter among others. These resolutions will make it easier for countries to get assistance from the United Nations on these issues.

On the last day of the fourth UN Environment Assembly, countries passed an ambitious declaration towards a more sustainable way of life on the planet.

Today is the day! Tell Congress to #UNITE4Children

Today, nearly 500 UNICEF supporters are on Capitol Hill to ask Congress to #UNITE4Children. But you don’t have to be in DC to be an advocate for the world’s children. Take 5 minutes to stand with vulnerable children everywhere: Send a note to your Members of Congress with just a few clicks.

This is a critical moment for UNICEF, as Congress is about to decide its budget priorities for the coming fiscal year. Today, UNICEF supporters plan to meet with close to 250 Congressional Offices to ensure they put children first, but we need to reach every elected official. That’s why your voice is so important. Speak out today to let Congress know why it should support UNICEF to improve the lives of kids around the world — especially the 350 million children living in countries affected by conflict and crisis.

Since its founding in 1946, UNICEF has helped save more children’s lives than any humanitarian organization. Thanks to strong, bipartisan House and Senate support for UNICEF and for child survival, we have seen great progress: the annual number of children dying before age five from preventable causes dropped by more than half since 1990.

Continued support from Congress also allows UNICEF to respond quickly to help children impacted by humanitarian crises. From tsunamis in Indonesia to ongoing conflict in Syria, and Ebola outbreaks in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, UNICEF works to reach every single vulnerable child.
