Our Planet

UNEP’s quarterly magazine Our Planet features authoritative articles on the theme of environment and development by world scientific and political leaders. Each issue of Our Planet concentrates on one specific theme, tying into international conferences, meetings (the Commission on Sustainable Development), events (World Environment Day), or dealing with issues of our time (Water or Climate Change). Our Planet reports on international developments and action. It reviews current thinking, suggests solutions, and debates the key issues of environmentally sustainable development.

Time for boldness

The evidence is irrefutable: the climate is changing, generating a range of environmental, social and economic problems. Without a doubt, climate change is the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced. The broad consensus is that the cause is human activity, and specifically how we fuel our economies. We have become, ironically, our own worst enemies. Put simply, our current consumption and production patterns are unsustainable, and the consequences will be felt by our children and grandchildren. Urgent action is needed.
