On Earth Day (22nd of April), the UN’s Secretary-General Antonio Guterres continued his rhetoric that tackling the climate crisis is more urgent than ever.

In the below video message, Guterres explained that currently, our actions are laying waste to forests, jungles, farmland, wetlands, oceans, coral reefs, rivers, seas, and lakes and that biodiversity is collapsing as one million species teeter on the brink of extinction.

He stressed that we must end these relentless and senseless wars on nature, but that we have the tools, the knowledge, and the solutions to act, but we must pick up the pace.
