Good news alert! Switzerland announces support for a moratorium on deep-sea mining! They join the growing chorus of countries that say no to this reckless emerging industry.
Switzerland's position sends a strong signal to the International Seabed Authority and any countries still on the fence about deep-sea mining.
The Netherlands must take note. The Netherlands is service oriented country and their marine engineering capabilities make it very tempting to support mining in the ocean, but the reality is that we cannot afford to trash ancient ecosystems and disturb locked-away carbon for the sake of profits that benefit only a few.
Well done to all who helped to make this happen! Activism matters. Your voice matters!
Keep sharing the petition. Together we can stop a disaster from starting!
