DAY ONE of Online Call to Europe IX focused on Climate Justice.The current health pandemic has highlighted the extent human impact is having on natural ecosystems and how interrelated everything is, yet at the same time the consequences of the crisis threaten to derail the European Green Deal.
The next 5-10 years will be crucial in securing a climate-proof future. That’s why it makes sense to implement an investment strategy that harnesses the European Green Deal now, alongside the recovery from the health pandemic. If we are to truly ensure that the way we run our societies respects the climate justice principles of intra-country, inter-country and intergenerational solidarity, as well as gender justice for climate, our actions will need to be bold in order to provide certainty and a clear pathway in order to ‘build back better’ and to ensure the transition is just. Swift action is needed to kick-start systemic change. We have all the ingredients to hand, so what are we waiting for?
The guiding questions framing this discussion were how do we ensure the European Green Deal for All is at the heart of a recovery plan? In which way do we need to ‘build back better’ for a more sustainable society? Which major steps need to take place in the next 5-10 years to catalyse action for climate justice? What lessons can we take from the covid-19 pandemic?
