In a video message sent to the event in New York, she highlighted the alarming reality of daily plastic waste equivalent to the load of 2,000 garbage trucks being dumped into oceans, rivers, and lakes.

She questioned the morality behind humanity’s creation of plastic islands, akin to continents, floating in the ocean, and pondered whether progress should not contribute to a more civilized and humane world.

Drawing from the harsh lessons of climate change and environmental pollution, she stressed the imperative to combat these challenges and take tangible steps toward sustainability in the context of the responsibility to future generations.
