Plastic Pollution Coalition

Plastic Pollution is a growing global alliance of individuals, organizations, businesses, and policymakers working toward a world free of plastic pollution and its toxic impacts on humans, animals, waterways and oceans, and the environment.

Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic products in the environment that adversely affects wildlife or humans. Plastics that act as pollutants are categorized into micro-, meso-, or macro debris, based on size. Plastics are inexpensive and durable, and as result levels of plastic production by humans are high. However, the chemical structure of most plastics renders them resistant to many natural processes of degradation and as a result, they are slow to degrade. Together, these two factors have led to a high prominence of plastic pollution in the environment. The common plastic products are such as plastic bags, Plastic cups, and glasses as well as Plastic used in medical field.

Environment issues

plastic is a growing disaster. Most plastics are made from petroleum or natural gas, non-renewable resources extracted and processed using energy-intensive techniques that destroy fragile ecosystems. The manufacture of plastic, as well as its destruction by incineration, pollutes air, land, and water and exposes workers to toxic chemicals, including carcinogens.

Plastic packaging – especially the ubiquitous plastic bag – is a significant source of landfill waste and is regularly eaten by numerous marine and land animals, to fatal consequences. Synthetic plastic does not biodegrade. It just sits and accumulates in landfills or pollutes the environment.

Decomposition issues

Trash dumps and landfills are unfortunate major problems, as they allow pollutants to enter the ground and affect wildlife and groundwater for years to come. As plastic is less expensive, it is one of the most widely available and overused items in the world today. When disposed of, it does not decompose easily and pollutes the land or air nearby when burned in the open air.

So, if we want to save our environment then we need to avoid the used of plastic products.

 

Youth Employability to all

I am a student at Arid Agriculture University and I got the opportunity to go to an exposure visit on Provincial Policy Dialogue Initiative on Youth Employability. Policy Dialogue brought the major stakeholders together to initiate the discussion on the real-time challenges faced by youth with regards to employment and entrepreneurship and the how the provincial youth policy is addressing those challenges. Different approaches were used to include the voices of primary actor and stakeholder which included, panel discussions, experience sharing and questions and answers sessions. This event also provided a platform to launch a website for Youth Employability Network.

Below are some of the recommendation that needs to be implemented for a better future:

Recommendation for Government

  • The government should establish Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO) inside the universities.The main objective of CEO will be to provide employment after complete education.
  • Eliminate job applying test fees so poor people can afford to apply for jobs.
  • The government should remove FDI barriers that encourage investment that create opportunities.
  • On the monetary side,  reduce the interest rate. This will encourage to take a loan for the purpose of investment.
  • Government spend their revenue on labor-intensive projects
  • The government should make policies for Cross-genders because they are also a part of our economy.

Recommendation for Private sectors

  • In private sectors, removed job applying barriers like experience and references. As experience comes with getting a job in the first place.
  • If the person has no experience the given training for work and appoints him and selection of employee on merit base.
  • Provide jobs according to the student’s qualification, skills, and behaviors.

Recommendation for the University sector

  • Students need to learn to question and our educational system needs to be inclusive and has an interactive environment that supports question from students. In order word, encouraging them to speak their mind.
  • Character building seminar should be constructed for students that improve the behavior of the student and help them in employability.
  • University to provide internship after completing education.

Recommendation for Students

  • students should select the line of education and career that they want to pursue in future.
  • Students should increase the capacity of learning and do part-time jobs or internship for know-how about office work.
  • Students should work hard and be honest.
