Reflections of the climate crisis
The climate crisis is not only an environmental problem, but also a development problem. It affects everyone differently. It increases inequalities. It affects vulnerable groups much more deeply. The climate crisis is an issue that needs to be addressed both internationally and across generations.
We talked about why we couldn’t take action in the focus of Goal 13: Climate Action. We touched on the relationship of the issue with inequalities and looked at its reflections in economic, social, environmental and political processes. We also had the opportunity to discuss the effects of the European Green Deal on the economy and how it can take action against the climate crisis.
