One million of species are at risk of extinction because of the significant human impact on the environment, a recent UN report warns.
Is that really so bad? And while you may be buying an eco-bag, separating waste and putting a solar panel on the roof; but will it be enough to change the situation significantly and improve the environment? And what else can be done at the state and regional levels? Or what can you personally do so you're not ashamed to confront future generations?
We will try to answer these and many other questions within our upcoming panel discussion. During the discussion, US and Ukrainian experts will talk about:
- state and regional policy of the USA in the field of environmental protection;
- how the United States fight against violators of environmental standards;
- how business and the population are motivated to be more environmentally-friendly;
- Ukrainian policy and prospects in the field of environment conservation.
