2. Fight for Your World – WWF Campaign

The new so-called “Fight for your world” Campaign by WWF and London agency Uncommon Creative Studio gives a visual sense to a well-known problem that all of us know already. We are slowly destroying our planet. And we must fight for it to preserve it and ensure the survival of our species. The powerful and provocative spot focuses on the idea that our generation could be the last one to enforce serious environmental changes on the planet.

3. Did You Know That Bhutan Is the Only Carbon Negative Country In The World?

Bhutan, the small landlocked nation sandwiched between China and India, can arguably be classified as one of the happiest places on earth. The nation of roughly the size of Switzerland has only about one tenth of Switzerland’s population – 800,000 inhabitants. This can be considered as one of the key ingredients for scoring remarkably high on the Gross National Happiness Index.

Recent studies have unfortunately shown that reducing our carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas output won’t be enough to reach that set target. To fight the rising temperatures, we will have to start extracting CO2 form the atmosphere, in addition to restricting the output of businesses. Using technologies to “suck” CO2 form the air seems futuristic but we already possess the means to do so.
