Replacing concrete pavements with wetlands, green rooftops and rain gardens means stormwater is absorbed back into the land, making water work for the city instead of against it

A small part of Shanghai is turning greener, street by street.

Mass-produced plastics were introduced around the middle of the last century as a miracle material — light, mouldable, durable and strong. Since then, the production of plastics has increased rapidly, bringing many benefits to society. Now, some 70 years later, annual plastics production is more than 300 million tonnes, and we have begun to understand the true legacy of these products: they never fully ‘disappear’ from the environment.

This large clean-up of Tisza river will stay with us for a while though

The sixth PLASTIC Cup last week attracted record breaking number of participants at the Upper Tisza river, Hungary. The traditional clean-up event was organized between Szatmárcseke and Tiszamogyorós this year, and unfortunately it broke all previous records. On the clean-up action with a 74 kilometre track, enthusiastic volunteers and registered teams collected 10 tonnes of waste, and at the end, the Cup went far away from Tisza.

The sixth Plastic Cup is starting on 4th of August

Mentioning summer and waterside makes many think of holiday and relax at lake Balaton or on a beach. But for an ever-growing part of the society, those words recall a good pirate adventure and volunteering for nature conservation: the PLASTIC Cup. This year's – altogether for the sixth occasion – 10-day waste picking derby at river Tisza will take place between 4-12 August 2018 on 70 km from Szatmárcseke to Tiszamogyorós, combined with a Transcarpathian pre-race in the days before the Cup.

The Danube – Day is a celebration of healthier rivers following 24 years of ground-breaking international cooperation. In June and July, festivals along the Danube, public meetings, educational events, enjoyments pay tribute to the Danube rivers, their inhabitants and celebrate the beauty of the river’s nature, which is always around us, even if we not always recognize its assets.

We are delighted to inform you that Hungary will be hosting the 7th ASEM Sustainable Development Dialogue on “Sustainable and Integrated Water Management in the 21st century – addressing imminent challenges”, a high-profile event to be held between 11 and 12 September 2018 in Budapest. The aim of the two-day event is to promote the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and targets related to water and sanitation, as well as to achieve progress on the implementation of the Danube-Mekong Cooperation Initiative launched by Hungary in 2012.

The global demand for water has been increasing at a rate of about 1% per year over the past decades as a function of population growth, economic development and changing consumption patterns, among other factors, and it will continue to grow significantly over the foreseeable future. Industrial and domestic demand for water will increase much faster than agricultural demand, although agriculture will remain the largest user overall. The vast majority of the growth in demand for water will occur in countries with developing or emerging economies.

The ambition of this award is clear: championing inspiring cases of initiatives that are turning the global Sustainable Development Goals into concrete solutions and opportunities.

European Commission awareness-rising campaign on single-use plastics

eucommission

Life moves so fast that we don’t always have the time to think about the impact of the small, daily choices we make – like using a take-away coffee cup with a plastic lid or accept- ing a straw with our drink.

43% of all marine litter polluting our oceans is made up of just
10 types of single-use plastic items; food containers, take- away beverage cups and lids, cotton buds, cutlery (including plates, stirrers and straws), balloons and balloon sticks, packets and wrappers, beverage bottles, cigarette butts, sanitary products, and carrier bags. As soon as we’re finished using these items, they often end up in the natural world; washed up on beaches or submerged in our oceans. This litter negatively impacts ecosystems, biodiversity – and even human health.

This can’t continue. We need to be ready to change the way we think about single-use plastic.

  • A new report by UN Environment examines the state of plastic pollution in 2018.

  • The report offers the first comprehensive global assessment of government action against plastic pollution.

  • The analysis features best practices and lessons learned from cases studies on single-use bans, levies and other forms of government intervention.

  • UN experts suggest a ten-step roadmap for policymakers.

New Delhi, 5 June 2018 – Released today, a new report from UN Environment finds a surging momentum in global efforts to address plastic pollution. The first-of-its-kind accounting finds governments are increasing the pace of implementation and the scope of action to curb the use of single-use plastics.

A day dedicated to stop plastic floods

International workshop and round table discussion

Accompanied by PLASTIC Cup and Trash Art exhibition

 

 CONCEPT & DRAFT AGENDA

“Empty plastic bottles, mixed with other waste, are dumped year by year on the river banks and are flushed downstream during flood events. This pollution could be highly visible resulting in curtains of plastic on riparian vegetation. Plastic waste also could be buried on the floodplains by fluvial sediments, or microparticulation poses an invisible threat for the wildlife and for humans. In all respects that has resulted in cross-border complaints from downstream countries. The signs of this pollution are intensely present throughout the whole Tisza basin and reach the main Danube River where this plastic waste can also be seen in the main protected areas of the Danube Delta and has an impact on the Black Sea environment.”
