During the weekend we had a networking event with for-Future climate activists from all over Germany and many other European countries.
Networking becomes ever more important in the climate justice movement, to unite and coordinate activities, as our governments fail to address the emergency we’re facing and even harbor plans to make it worse, by adding more fossil fuel power plants, such as Datteln IV or Adani’s Carmichael coal mine.
The event was an Open Space, expertly facilitated by Jutta Weimar, Jens Wellendorf, and many supporters, who graciously donated their time and effort; results will now be forwarded to the local groups.
Vegan catering came from Fläming Kitchen, a so-called people-kitchen based in the Fläming region between Berlin and Leipzig – yum!
We were hosted at Max-Bill-Schule in Berlin Weissensee – many thanks to the director, Bernhard Klein, for having us!
I recently went to Barcelona, to attend a concert by Adexe y Nau as part of the Festival Mil·lenni in Sant Jordi Club. Fantastic show, by the way!
For this first time, though, I made the whole trip by train and public transport, and it was surprisingly easy. No need to fly or hire a car.
And the CO2 emissions are much lower – highly recommended!
Here are my goals for this year:
- Further reduce my carbon footprint and continue to actively support Fridays For Future in the struggle to achieve climate justice
- Reach at least a normal BMI, i.e. a BMI less than 24.9:
- Reduce my weight below 174 lbs. (79kg) and start exercising
- Submit at least three responses to Call for Papers / Meetup talks
- Run regular Rancher meetups in Cologne
- Process YouTube backlog, publish regularly on YouTube throughout the year, and improve my video and photo skills
- Reach these Social Media milestones:
- 10.000 Tweets
- 1.000 Instagram posts
- 100 YouTube videos
- Earn enough credits to start my Bachelor thesis in early 2021
2020 must be the year in which CO2 emissions begin to drop!
