The global upwelling of citizen action on the climate emergency and the opportunities it presents for NTN to ensure solutions, policies and actions are in accordance with a toxic free future is our overarching mission. Ocean plastic and chemical pollution and the march of the waste incineration industry have been our major areas of activist work. At the same time we are focusing on solutions and growing the zero waste movement and working to turn industrial pesticide-dependent agriculture into a regenerative farming movement. Increasingly we do this against the backdrop of hostile government agencies and disinterested mainstream media. Many of us have also faced significant life challenges in 2019.
