World Wildlife Day is observed annually on 3 March, celebrating and raising awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. It reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime and human-induced reduction of species, which have wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts.

Since the outbreak of the global Covid-19 pandemic, international tourism has severely diminished in Africa, effectively drying up a critical source of income for conservation. Across Africa, conservation areas of all kinds, from private reserves to national parks to community-managed areas are critical for saving wild species.

#TikTokWildlifeDay was launched to drive awareness around the diverse and beautiful wildlife in Africa as well as to encourage people to visit and support wildlife areas when they can.

TikTok users are encouraged to show their support by posting their videos using the official sticker to discover their “wild animal match”. In addition to the sticker, users can tune in to watch various online safaris through TikTok Live via the Latest Sightings account on 3 and 4 March.

In these live virtual safaris, viewers will be taken on a special tour of four South African Reserves: MalaMala Game Reserve, Mjejane Private Game Reserve, Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary and Black Rhino Private Game Reserve, where viewers can watch a variety of incredible animals such as Africa’s famous “Big Five” (leopard, lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo).

Boniswa Sidwaba, TikTok content operations manager, Africa, says that TikTok has always been committed to being a platform that inspires creativity and brings joy, which is why this initiative is such a special one.

“TikTok is not only for entertainment – it is a space where the community can come to learn about things too. With its vast global reach, TikTok is the perfect platform to share useful information, to teach and learn and inspire others in a way that is creative, fun and engaging.

We want to use this opportunity to inspire a new generation to have a positive impact on the planet and those around them as well as shine a light on important conservation areas, many of which are currently open for visitors.”

“As we slowly return to pre-Covid tourism levels on the African continent, we must ensure that conservation of wildlife is a priority,” said Juliette Biao Koudenoukpo, UNEP’s Regional Representative for Africa. “UNEP supports TikTok’s efforts to boost awareness of the importance of conserving Africa’s biodiversity in their natural habitats for the health of people and planet.”

“We are incredibly excited about this campaign and we want to ask the whole TikTok community to join us in supporting this significant cause. Just look for #TikTokWildlifeDay to join the fun and don’t forget to also add #WorldWildlifeDay #WWD2021 to your captions,” Sidwaba concludes.

Ultimaker Transformation Summit: How to remain flexible and productive as a business in a volatile world

Ultimaker CEO Jürgen von Hollen reveals it all during the Ultimaker Transformation Summit April 20-23rd

 

UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS - Media OutReach - 13 April 2021 - The COVID-19 pandemic sent shockwaves through the worldwide manufacturing community, as transport and workplace restrictions frustrated supply chains across the planet. And then, more recently a container ship got stuck in the Suez Canal. Disrupting global supply chains, again. But a crisis can also result in opportunities. And 3D printing is one of these opportunities, already being used by some companies worldwide to drive transformation and ensure business continuity in a volatile market.

The 2021 3D Printing Sentiment Index, conducted by international research firm Savanta in late 2020, showed that leading companies wasted no time in showing their entrepreneurship by finding alternatives to ensure business continuity and many turned to 3D printing as a game-changer in adverse times. The Index is a measure of market awareness and adoption as well as sentiment towards the potential impact of 3D printing technology. While the awareness for the technology has increased since last year, 29% of businesses who could potentially use 3D printing have no current familiarity with the technology. This means there is still considerable untapped opportunity in industries worldwide​. The adoption of 3D printing also increased in 2020, likely driven by the COVID-19 pandemic as businesses looked for more reliable solutions for prototyping and local manufacturing, less at risk from global volatility. While 1-in-3 businesses surveyed are currently using 3D printing, the Index data shows it is only fully embedded in 1-in-10. And that needs to change.


The Ultimaker Transformation Summit

The Ultimaker Transformation Summit is therefore set up to inspire and inform businesses of any size worldwide how 3D printing can help to transform. This free online summit, being held April 20-23, features vision keynotes, product launches, and demonstrations. A fully customized, interactive showroom brings the Ultimaker ecosystem to life. It gives participants full control to discover Ultimaker's product portfolio, engage with 3D printing experts via live chat, and meet software and material partners that are part of the ecosystem. Real-world applications that have helped customers transform their businesses with 3D printing in this volatile market are displayed in such a way that participants can discover them at their own pace. This summit is the place to be for decision-makers, engineers, and innovators – from large global companies to SMEs – who want to start their transformation today. Save your seat, register today.

Jürgen von Hollen, CEO at Ultimaker: "In a complex and rapidly changing market, innovation is essential for future-proofing manufacturing. During the Ultimaker Transformation Summit we will inspire our guests together with trusted partners how to drive truly successful transformation today and tomorrow. I will also be revealing how Ultimaker is transforming as a company during the opening keynote on Tuesday April 20th, 17:00 CEST. Furthermore, we will be announcing some exciting new solutions that help to make that desired transformation happen. Since we greatly miss the direct interaction with our prospects and customers at physical events – and because we have these exciting updates to share – we decided to open our doors and welcome you to a unique online experience to start your transformation journey today."
