Earth Day 2022: Investing In Our Planet

The science is clear - we are pressuring the planet in more ways than one, 

causing unprecedented changes in climate and biodiversity, and mostly driven by human activities. All this combined increasingly threatens nature, human lives, livelihoods and well-being around the world. This Earth Day, the call is to "Invest in Our Planet" and for everyone to come together to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). So what can and should be done? Ahead of Earth Day on April 22nd, we discuss this and more with Zara Phang, a Sustainable Economy and Policy Analyst, at WWF-Malaysia.
