FloCard is a product of evolution, numerous trial and errors. Unlike every popular product that has a backstory, FloCard has provenance. The repeated waves of Covid pandemics taught us the importance of things like contactless, virtual, oxygen, and a green environment. FloCard was conceived long before the epidemic in October of 2018. However, the value of FloCard was recognised at some point during the pandemic. FloCard was born as a product somewhere during the pandemic. It's a promise to help everyone grow without causing harm to the environment.
It's a one-click initiative aimed at assisting individuals, organisations, governments, and businesses in aligning themselves with sustainable development goals (SDG 2030. FloCard is a #BetterPlanetTogether campaign, which aims to have a broad impact for a more sustainable planet.
How #BetterPlanetTogether campaign matters and why you must join it?
Unemployment, social isolation, and the increased vulnerability of particular segment of people to disasters, diseases, and other phenomena are all causes of poverty. According to estimates, the covid 19 pandemic will put another 71 million people into poverty. It's critical to be concerned about other people's financial situations since our well-being as humans is intertwined. The foundations of the sustainable development goals are being eroded by rising inequality. Everyone's active participation can make a difference in the fight against poverty.
840 million people are expected to go hungry by 2030, according to estimates. Around 2 billion people do not have consistent access to food. Hunger stifles human development and puts a strain on long-term development goals. Food security will necessitate a multi-faceted and inclusive approach.
The foundation of flourishing society is healthy living and well-being. To attain universal health coverage by 2030, we will need an additional 18 million health personnel. Essential health services cover roughly one-third to half of the world's population. Even basic healthcare is not available to the last mile in many regions. As healthy people are the foundation of a thriving economy, we must begin making informed choices for healthy living.
Education fosters gender equality while allowing for upward social mobility. Education that is both inclusive and of high quality is essential for escaping poverty. By April 2020, about 1.6 billion children and teens had dropped out of school. The pandemic has only made things worse. The campaign aims to bridge the digital divide between under-connected and digitalized countries while also raising awareness of the importance of education.
Women and girls represent half of the world's potential. However, our societal progress has slowed as a result of gender inequality. Gender equality is a basic human right as well as a prerequisite for a thriving society. The campaign's goal is to raise awareness about changemakers, encourage others to follow in their footsteps, promote healthy relationships, and celebrate gender equality.
Around 2.2 billion people lack access to safe drinking water around the world, with 785 million lacking basic drinking water. To minimise climate change, prevent death from diseases like malaria and diarrhoea, protect biodiversity, and ensure food security, sustainable water and sanitation sources must be managed. The campaign's goal is to raise awareness about the roles that everyone can play in water management while holding the government accountable for water resource management.
Around the world, 789 million people do not have access to electricity. This summer in India, the situation has simply gotten worse for many more people. Energy that is affordable, reliable, and sustainable is critical to the economy and its sectors. The campaign's goal is to encourage companies to take proactive steps toward ecosystem restoration.
Economic growth is based on education, employment, and respectable labour. Sustained economic growth translates to higher living standards and more opportunities. The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness about the value of investing in education, training, skilling, and gainful employment.
The key to achieving economic growth, social development, and climate action is industrialization, which is backed by innovation and infrastructure. The initiative attempts to foster a collaborative and innovative culture in order to maximise resource efficiency.
Inequality, in whatever form, jeopardises long-term social and economic growth, encourages poverty, and robs people of their sense of accomplishment. Inequality generates criminality, sickness, and environmental damage. A better world can only be reached if no one is denied the opportunity for a better tomorrow. To achieve radical change, the campaign will focus on political, economic, and social measures.
9 out of 10 individuals in urban areas around the world breathe air that does not meet WHO air quality standards. Cities account for 60-80 percent of energy consumption and 75 percent of carbon emissions despite occupying only 3% of the Earth's territory. The effort is dedicated to make cities more environmentally friendly and improving air quality. Its goal is to improve the community's living conditions.
By cutting production costs and boosting the efficiency of food systems, reducing food loss and waste can help to ensure environmental sustainability. We are polluting water faster than can be recycled. Our material footprint is constantly increasing. The campaign spreads awareness about reducing food waste and choosing sustainable alternatives.
Starting in 2020, our GHG emissions must decrease by 7.6% per year to meet the 1.5°C objective. Wildfires, hurricanes, droughts, floods, and other disasters are becoming more common as the Earth's climate changes faster than expected. If nothing is done, climate change will cause far more damage to everything than anyone could have predicted. The better planet together campaign is focused on boosting efforts to combat climate change.
The livelihood of over 3 billion people is dependent on marine and coastal biodiversity. The oceans absorb over 23% of the CO2 produced annually by human activity. The amount of garbage entering oceans is steadily growing, resulting in billions of dollars in losses. The better planet together campaign is aimed at preserving and restoring biodiversity.
On Earth, 2 billion hectares of land have been degraded, affecting 3.2 billion people. We are losing top soil at a rate that may render our land unfit for agricultural in the next 45-50 years, resulting in food scarcity. Around 400 square miles of rain forest were cut down in Brazil in April 2022 to make way for agriculture. Every year, almost two million people die from neglected zoonotic illnesses like Covid 19, primarily in low- and middle-income countries. Through a variety of initiatives, the Better Planet Together campaign aims to improve life on land.
Despite international law's protections, 100 civilians are killed every day in armed conflicts, including women and children. Economic progress is harmed by violence and insecurity, which often leads to long-standing grievances among communities. The campaign will focus on values that promote inclusiveness and build the groundwork for everyone to live a dignified life.
SDG 2030's success is dependent on strong international cooperation among individuals, organisations, governments, and businesses. The #BetterPlanetTogether campaign is intended to assist each of these organisations in amplifying their efforts toward the common aims.
