OUR POLLUTED PLANET
Pollution is destroying our planet.
It is everywhere; in our rivers, oceans, land and air.
"Plastic is suffocating our earth. It has become one of the greatest environmental issues of our time."
"Myanmar desperately needs more electricity.
The question is how will we get it?"
As well as hydropower, fossil fuels like coal, gas and oil are being used to meet the energy deficit. These fossil fuels are bad news for people and nature. They are dangerous to harvest, cause deforestation, and pollute our air and water.
“A boom in industry has lead to a spike in air and water pollution."
Everyone has a role to play in solving this problem. Together, we can protect our planet from pollution.
"Myanmar has just become one of the latest countries to join the global fight against plastic."
"A few small villages across rural Myanmar are proving that Myanmar's future can be sustainably electrified."
"Sustainable practices in Myanmar’s growing industries will aid and protect the country’s development journey.”
FROM THE FIELD
"Electricity is like magic": a Q&A with Shoon So Oo
Shoon So Oo is the energy programme manager at WWF-Myanmar. He’s one of the people behind ‘The Renewable Energy Vision’ – one of the most ambitious programmes of its kind. The Vision aims for 100% renewable energy by 2050 for Myanmar. Shoon believes it can happen, and he’s convinced that what the energy programme does is as close to magic as you’ll get in the real world.
All over the world there are ordinary people doing extraordinary things for our planet.
