CHANNEL 13 - CLIMATE ACTION
WELCOME TO PFF CHANNEL 13

 The Planet Game

Our planet is designed to work in a circular economy. The 4-minute animation [left}, courtesy of the Ellen Macarthur Foundation, tells a simple and powerful story of how we can regenerate life and well-being on our planet using principles focused on people, planet, and prosperity. PFF is developing a Global Reality Competition Series entitled, The Planet Game. To become part of The Planet Game team, click below.​​

Shark Tank Panel, Greta Thunberg
Get into the Planet Game!
Imagine Greta Thunberg hosting Shark Tank! A new Reality Competition Series in development enables global participants to invest in start-up companies focused on reaching United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainable startups will be required to focus on the Triple Bottom Line:
PEOPLE. PLANET. PROSPERITY.

U.N. GOAL 13 - TAKE URGENT ACTION TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE
How Collaborations Can Work... 
This 14-minute YouTube film shows a collaborative integration of the recycling-focused diving company, Net-Works in the Philippines, the enlightened wildlife charity behind the London Zoo, and Interface, one of the world’s largest carpet tile manufacturers.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13 aims to “take urgent action to combat climate change and its impact”, while acknowledging that the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is the primary international, intergovernmental forum for negotiating the global response to climate change.

More specifically, the associated targets of SDG 13 focus on:
​​​​​​​
  • Improvement of education, awareness-raising and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warnings. 
  • Integration of climate change measures into national policies
  • Implementation of the commitment undertaken at the UNFCCC.
  • Promotion of mechanisms able to increase capacity for effective climate–change related planning and management.
  • Focus on least developed countries and Small Island Developing States
GLOWIN​​​​​​​G GLOWING GONE
Message from Ambassador Peter Thomson, U.N. Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Ocean
My hometown in the South Pacific is surrounded on three sides by a coral barrier reef. That reef is our true interface with the Ocean and the protection it provides, along with its wide navigable passage, is the very reason our town exists in the first place. 

I find it incredibly difficult to imagine a world without coral reefs, but that is essentially what the IPCC has forecast will be the case once we go through the dreaded line of 2˚ Celsius global warming. If that sounds extreme to you, I ask you to consider for a moment that current trends, as presented by the World Meteorological Organization, have us on a trajectory that takes us to around 4˚ Celsius global warming before the end of the century. 

As the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, put it in his speech at the Blue COP in Madrid last December, we are knowingly destroying the life-support systems of this planet. And it is for that reason I find myself believing the future of humankind and of coral are intricately linked.

Thus my central message is that whatever angle you’re coming from in coral’s defense, our main enemy is our burgeoning levels of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, and that it is everyone’s responsibility to do whatever we can to bring about the required transformations to our patterns of consumption, production and habitat destruction, in order to get us to a carbon neutral world by 2050.

Of course, there are many other measures we can take to mitigate on coral’s behalf, many measures applying the best of science and innovation to build resilience for coral reefs, both locally and at regional and global levels. But these measures will not occur at the scale required without financial support for those at the frontlines of research and implementation. That is why I was so glad to participate in the recent launch of the Global Fund for Coral Reefs and why I was so interested to read recently about the good results coming out of the Mars Coral Reef Restoration Program in the heart of the world’s Coral Triangle.

If we care about coral’s survival, we must all get involved in good works to make it so. Thus I urge you to join the Glowing Glowing Gone campaign and sign the 
petition calling for priority protection of coral reefs, for strong protection and management of 30% of the Ocean, and net zero carbon emissions before 2050 in order to restore the Ocean’s well-being.
