As we approach the 2018 World Environment Day (WED) on Tuesday, 5 June, we invite you to adopt a sustainable lifestyle by consuming ethically, sustainably, and responsibly. As you consider ways to respond to this year´s WED theme “Beat Plastic Pollution”, we encourage you to use two mobile phone apps to help you deeply reflect on our Earth and positively respond with sustainable actions.
The Deep Time Walk enables you to enter a deep experience by walking through a dramatized history of the living Earth. Sensitively designed by a team of experts using appropriate technology, the app encourages a shift away from the smartphone screen to instead connect with the natural world around you. Walk through 4.6 billion years of earth history, learn about humanity’s ancestral heritage with all life, experience what you are a part of and comprehend our geological impact. Download the Deep Time Walk on any Android or iOS device, available at 1/3rd off the usual price until the end of World Environment Day.
We also invite you to download the Mapting app to share with others activities and projects you are involved with and that help in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Earth Charter Principles. Anyone can respond in creative ways to this year’s call for the international community to collectively “Beat Plastic Pollution”. We would like to see a wave of activities shown in Mapting.
“Adopt patterns of production, consumption and reproduction that safeguard Earth’s regenerative capacities, human rights and community well-being.” – Earth Charter Principle 7
