The signatories of an open letter to member states argue that, given the array of current crises, the selection of Ban Ki-moon’s successor as head of the UN in 2016 will be one of the organisation’s most important decisions over the next decade.

“Call For Comments”  The Eco Audit — Ban Ki-moon Calls on Nations to do more Protect the Environmen​t

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon has called on nations to do more to protect the environment from the devastation of war.

“The environment has long been a silent casualty of war and armed conflict. From the contamination of land and the destruction of forests to the plunder of natural resources and the collapse of management systems, the environmental consequences of war are often widespread and devastating,” said Ban in a statement for the UN’s International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict on Thursday.

“Let us reaffirm our commitment to protect the environment from the impacts of war, and to prevent future conflicts over natural resources.”

 The Guardian posted an article, “What’s the environmental impact of  modern war?”  Ban Ki-moon has called on nations to do more to protect the environment from the destruction of war, but even in times of peace our militaries  have a huge impact on natural resources [and the health of human and natural systems], to learn more
We ask in this 21st century “What is the role and function of environmental education, sustainability, and engaging stakeholders to effectively protect living systems?”  Let us know your thoughts. 
 All the best,
Pam Puntenney and Bremley Lyngdoh
