GLOBAL INSPIRATION:

Fishing for prosperity

Fishing for prosperity, a project supported by the UN Development Programme, focuses on increasing income of fishermen on the Idjwi Island in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Fishing is often the only livelihood option for locals. However, their working conditions are problematic: a large portion of their income goes to their cooperative and to pay for equipment, the remaining earnings are approximately two dollars per day. The UN initiative helps to create better conditions for local fishermen as well as new jobs.

TIPS:

Donate what you do not need. Charities will find a new use for your old clothes, books and furniture.

Freeze fresh products and leftovers that you are not able to eat in time. You can do the same with your take away meals and finish them the next day. It will save food as well as money.

Eat less meat, poultry and fish. Meat production uses more natural resources than plant-based production.
