International Snow Leopard Day
The snow leopard species faces the threat of extinction despite both its ecological importance and spiritual significance to indigenous communities. Recognizing it would take more than individual efforts to conserve snow leopards, at the first Global Snow Leopard and Ecosystem Protection Forum held in October 2013, all 12 snow leopard range countries endorsed the Bishkek Declaration. They pledged their “commitment to present and future generations…to protect and recover snow leopard populations and their fragile habitats for all people to enjoy.” A year later and annually thereafter on October 23, International Snow Leopard Day has been held in order to commemorate the anniversary of the Bishkek Declaration and to create awareness about the snow leopard.

Clean up the World Campaign
Clean Up the World Campaign was established in 1993 and is one of the largest community-based environmental programs in the world. This campaign has brought together different groups to serve one purpose and that is to solve environmental issues by cleaning up and conserving the planet.

Due to the global pandemic, huddling in big groups as part of a clean-up project isn’t safe but you can still participate by reducing, reusing and recycling waste in your own homes until local policies allow you to gather again in groups.

Plastic Free July
Plastic Free July began in 2011 and was launched as an answer to the growing plastic problem. This initiative is to encourage everyone to be a part of the solution by forgetting about the disposable culture and get used to carrying reusables to limit the use of single-use plastic such as takeaway coffee cups, food containers, bottled drinks and more.

In 2020, participants who joined the Plastic Free July movement were able to successfully avoid about 900 million kilos of plastic waste.
