Transformation towards a greener European economy will
ensure the long-term environmental sustainability of Europe
and its neighbourhood. In this context, shifts in attitudes will
be important. Together, regulators, businesses and citizens
could participate more widely in managing natural capital and
ecosystem services, creating new and innovative ways to use
resources efficiently and designing equitable fiscal reforms. Using
education and various social media, citizens can be engaged in
tackling global issues such as meeting the 2 °C climate target.
When travelling to exotic places, choose your souvenirs carefully.
Trade in items such as woodcarvings, red coral or ornaments with fur or feathers, is often regulated and permits are required to bring them home. Check the rules, as there are strict laws governing exports of wildlife and you could risk having your souvenir confiscated.
