Y2D positive environmental stories
A green journalism initiative by EuronewsGreen that profiles Y2D positive environmental stories aims to counter climate anxiety and instill hope amid environmental crises by providing regular updates with positive news about the planet from eco-innovation, to green breakthroughs, and climate victories.
Read about some of the more positive developments to-date in 2023, such as the growth of renewable energy, improved protection for vulnerable ecosystems, and the positive outcomes of climate protocols. Plus even a reminder of the RanMarine Technology story per our deployment of a WasteShark in the Canary Wharf waters🦈😉
In their words:
“Eco-anxiety, climate doom, environmental existential dread – as green journalists, we see these terms used a lot – and often feel them ourselves.
While there’s a lot to be worried about when it comes to the climate and nature crises, we must not lose hope – because hopelessness breeds apathy.
The media has an important role to play in combatting climate doom. It’s our job to be truthful and accurate in our reporting, not trying to downplay or greenwash the situation. But it’s also our job to show that there is hope.
In 2022, as part of our ongoing effort to tackle eco-anxiety (both that of our readers and our own), we kept track of all the positive environmental news throughout the year – racking up over 100 stories of eco-innovation, green breakthroughs and climate wins.
In 2023, we’re confident the good news will keep on coming, as renewable power soars, vulnerable ecosystems gain rights, and climate protocols start to pay dividends.
This article will be regularly updated with the latest good news. It may be something small and local, something silly that made us smile, or something enormous and potentially world-changing.”
