The question of reducing pollution and expulsion of hazardous wastes on both land and sea
Pollution and dealing with waste is a very serious matter, which affects all living organism around the world.
Especially during the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th century, environmental pollution increased with the use of new sources of fuel, the development of large factories, and the rise of unsanitary urban centers. Consequently, the revolution had shown the great dangers of not taking care of wastes and thereby contaminate the environment.
Nowadays pollution is still one of the greatest problems that the world is facing. As the world population booms, the amount of pollution and waste produced are simultaneously exploding. Therefore, this matter is directly connected to 3 of the 17 Sustainable Development goals of the UN. As Well as the careful management of oceans and seas, the maintenance and protection of the land and the decline of waste which is produced throughout the entire production and consumption process is a key feature of a sustainable future.
To prevent the natural world of raising damage, it is from high importance to deal with industries for example, which often use techniques causing high pollution in order to produce in a profitable way. Furthermore, the contamination of drinking water, which is caused by the release of chemical or other hazardous wastes to the nearest water source after and affects of millions of people needs to be solved.
With that being said it is important to inhibit all forms of pollution that produce some kind of a negative or harmful impact on the environment or living beings. Therefore, our GA3 committee will be dealing with this notable issue and is looking for an international solution.
