Unite for the environment, Deo urges leaders

As the world celebrates Earth Day tomorrow, the founder of the Pacific Recycling Foundation, Amitesh Deo is calling on national leaders to set their differences aside and work together by demonstrating genuine care and commitment to environment conservation.

Deo said the global call for unity must start here at home and in particular our political space and Earth Day is marked as a reminder of the need for a collective international unity to take deliberate, meaningful, actions.

“Earth Day is to celebrate us as global citizens however, in Fiji there is still a lingering feeling of uncertainty, especially for those in marginalised spaces,” said Deo.

“This Earth Day, we acknowledge the difficult journey of advocacy for the environment and the need to have stability and sustainability to protect our earth.

“If there’s no political stability and political justice, the environmental justice that we’re advocating for will never be achieved,” he said.

Deo said as the PRF continues to change mindsets and behaviour toward best
practices, it needs the same level of commitment from the Government, private sector, and development partners.

“It is our plea to work together for a common good – managing waste and keeping our environment clean.”
