SDG 13: Climate Action

Take Urgent Action to Combat Climate Change and Its Impact

SDG 13 calls for urgent action to combat climate change and its impact by reducing global warming. It is important that countries can protect themselves against natural disasters and that the consequences of climate-related disasters can be adequately dealt with. This can be done by, among other things, adding climate-related measures to national policies, but also by increasing knowledge about climate change.

Initiatives in The Hague

Urban Agriculture The Hague

Actively getting started with urban farming is not only fun, it also has positive effects on your health. Research indicates that the color green has a positive effect on humans. Working in a vegetable garden provides physical exercise and mental relaxation, while you can enjoy the fresh air. And last but not least, people gain a lot of social contacts when they are involved in an urban agriculture initiative. They can show their qualities and also gain work experience.

Did you know that allotments are not the only form of urban agriculture? There are also neighborhood gardens, urban beekeepers and urban farms. Read more about urban agriculture here.
