Presentation of the UNSDG18-I: “Rescue for Future”
“Rescue for Future” is a research and information project led by the IMEDD in the framework of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with the UNSDG18-I, to help a land with the management of an environmental crisis due to a terrible natural catastrophe.
The goal is to raise people’s awareness and send calls for rescue to the entire population and the public organizations of the devasted areas and at international, in order to bring support and help the cleaning and rebuilding.
This initiative “Rescue for Future” was undertaken in 2019 in joint collaboration by:
- The IMEDD (project’s holder)
- The Expedition of the Planet led by Rose, the Princess of the Environment
- The European Commission
- The United Nations, the UN Environment Programme and the UN Women
Some public organizations are associated in “Rescue for future”:
- the city
- the department or province or state
- the region
- the government
- the first response rescuers
- if in Europe, the European Commission.
Depending on the natural catastrophe, “Rescue for Future” brings support by spreading information based on research following the goal of providing a neutral analysis on the event. The IMEDD federates the international and local organizations, and gives alerts, ideas or advices to the rescuers and decision-makers on how to organize an efficient response.
