Across the world, many campaigns are building traction to slow and eventually stop the effects of climate change and to increase biodiversity, one of these is 30 by 30.
30 by 30 is a worldwide agreement that ensures legal protection for at least 30% of land and ocean areas by 2030. Over 70 nations have agreed to this which makes the effects stronger- leading to a faster overall bringing of global warming to a standstill. It was promoted at COP15, where world leaders met and collaborated on ideas and thoughts on how we can save our planet.
In the UK, 26% of the land is already protected because it contains outstanding natural beauty or is a national park, but adding that extra four percent, - which is the size of the Lake District and South Downs national parks combined- will support the recovery of nature further. The government has already led, since 2019, the Global Ocean Alliance promoting a target to protect 30% of the ocean by 2030. The Alliance now has 30 countries signed up, with Guatemala joining this week. It is super important that we conserve not only the beautiful parts of the world but more than enough for nature to have a part on this planet.
The natural world provides critical resources for humans to live. There is no substitute. This is why we must go to efforts to protect the world that we live in.
