The EU ‘Climate Diplomacy Week’ is the annual global campaign launched by the European Union and its Member States to foster cooperation on climate change and inspire real action. Entering its 9th year in Indonesia, Climate Diplomacy Week shares learnings, celebrates progress and continues to build the momentum for climate action between the EU and Indonesia.

Climate Diplomacy Week invites all stakeholders to restore our green forests and protect our blue oceans, as we transition together toward a more sustainable future. Celebrating the European Year of Youth 2022, this year’s Climate Diplomacy Week will shine a light on young people’s role and contributions to building a greener future.

Plogging

Date         : 18 September 2022 Location : Jakarta & Bali Every year, the EU organises the #EUBeachCleanUp global campaign that brings people together around one common purpose: protecting the oceans and marine life from litter. Through the ‘Directives on Single-Use Plastic’ policy, the EU is spearheading global efforts to reduce and avoid plastic pollution and marine litter. In this global movement, every action counts: not only taken at the beach but at home; not only taken at the ocean but also inland, such as through plogging activity (picking up litter and jogging). Held on World Clean Up Day (18 September 2022), we invite you to take part in plogging that aims to raise awareness of the importance of reducing single-use plastics that pollute our streets, parks and eventually our seas and forests. Whilst the key to fighting plastic pollution is to stop it at the source, we all have a part to play in reducing waste and cleaning up our beaches and streets. Let’s turn a drop in the ocean into a wave of change!
