AWARENESS ON CLIMATE CHANGE

FULL CHANGE

Expressing that at the point reached today, the "bill" is paid together as humanity, Varank said, "This has now become a struggle for existence for mankind. If we want to create a livable environment and leave a livable world to future generations, we need to make radical changes in our economic activities. Of course, governments will aim to increase the economic growth and welfare of their countries in their development policies, but we need to pay more attention than ever to the sustainability of this growth and its respect for the environment. As Turkey, we will always continue to do our part in this regard.” he said.

WE NEED TO ACT AS A COLLECTIVE

“Even if we create a carbon neutral country as Turkey, if other countries do not take these steps, it is not possible for us to make the world livable,” said Varank, “Therefore, all countries must take responsibility. In particular, there is a country that emits half of the carbon in the world right now. When we look at the measures regarding this country, we see that no one cares about this issue, and that Western countries continue to invest in those countries. We will do our part, but we have to act collectively here.” used the expressions.

With the launch of TOGG, awareness in this area will increase even more.” said.
