UNSDG18-A: GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE

GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE – ILLUMINATING THE MONUMENTS IN GREEN

On the 3rd of December 2019, the IMEDD, research institute specialized in environment and sustainable development at international, has unveiled, on the occasion of the NATO dinner at Buckingham Palace, its initiative “GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE”, that consists in empowering the countries and the cities to illuminate their monuments in green to show their support to environmental preservation and their will to fight against climate change.

HOW DID THE INITIATIVE GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE START?

Earlier, in November 2019, on the occasion of the European Week for the Reduction of Waste in Italy (EWWR2019), the IMEDD tested its initiative called “GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE” which consisted in lighting the monuments of the city of Ventimiglia (Italy) in green, following the acceptance of the city public authorities, the businesses and the population to commit to environmental preservation and sustainable development in the framework of the UNSDG18 with the IMEDD’s support. The first Ceremony of the Green Illumination of the Ancient Medieval Town of Ventimiglia occurred on the 16th of November 2019.

The success of “GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE” in Ventimiglia led the IMEDD to bring the initiative to the COP25 and at the NATO event in London

Considering the success of its operation “GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE” in the city of Ventimiglia, due to the many congratulations received by the city and the local community, the IMEDD decided, before the COP25, to propose 16 countries of the United Nations to integrate the initiative “GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE” in their UN Sustainable Development Plans, as the symbol of their commitments to the earth, the environment and the future generations.
17 days were needed for the IMEDD to organize its international information and awareness campaign with the 16 member states of the UN between the launch of the initiative in Ventimiglia, the COP25 in Madrid and the NATO reception at Buckingham Palace.

In the framework of the COP25 in Madrid and the NATO event in London, Her Majesty, The Queen Elisabeth II, becomes the first World Leader to take part in the initiative “Green Love for Future”. The Queen commits the United Kingdom on the 4th of December 2019. Buckingham Palace is illuminated in green

The first World Leader who accepted to commit Her country to “GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE” and who authorized the illumination of the United Kingdom in green is Her Majesty the Queen Elisabeth II. For the occasion, at midnight on the 4th of December 2019, Buckingham Palace was illuminated in green in sign of the commitment of the United Kingdom and the commonwealth to the fight against climate change and to show support for the environmental preservation and future generations.

 

The Principality of Monaco follows the United Kingdom on the 4th of December 2019 with “Green Love for Future” and lights the Princely Palace in Green

The second World Leader to commit His country to the initiative “GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE” is H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco. In the very early morning of the 4th of December 2019, the Princely Palace was illuminated  in green to show the will of Monaco to fight against climate change and support the environmental preservation and a sustainable development for the future generations.

The United States of America join the initiative “Green Love for Future” on the 6th of December 2019 and light the White House in Blue

The third World Leader to join the initiative “GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE” is Mr President Donald Trump.
On the 6th of December 2019, following the U.S presidential visit in London, on the occasion of the NATO meetings and the U.S President’s encounters with the world leaders, Mr President Donald Trump and the First Lady, Melania Trump illuminated the main monuments of the United States in Blue to show their support for America to commit to a more sustainable world. In the framework of the presidential agreement with “GREEN LOVE FOR FUTURE”, the U.S.A lit the White House in Blue. 
The illumination in Blue of the White House and other U.S monuments is a positive sign for the entire world and an expected sign that all the environmental agencies, cities committed to sustainable plans or businesses committed to Corporate Social Responsibility and sustainable development had been waiting for so long.
This initiative, “Green Love For Future”, is a component of the global presidential commitments, USA Love For The Earth. Now, that the lights of America turned blue, all the monuments of all the states are invited to light their monuments to show support to the earth.
