The Tsar is still murdering people in Ukraine, and the Arab-Israeli war is continuing unabated, not to mention the other ongoing forgotten wars.
After the Tsar has declared the LGBTQI* community as a terrorist organization, he’s now going after women’s rights, very much like all the other fundamentalist dictators worldwide do.
The current state of the final resolution at COP28 is a disgrace – driven by fossil fuel lobbyists, the necessary phase-out of fossil fuels is not included in the text.
We know that COP will likely continue to fail us, so we spent the last week at the Earth Social Conference in Casanare, Colombia, working on a shared vision for a climate-just world.
During this year’s conference, we learned a lot from each other about concepts like Buen Vivir or Radical Tenderness. I am very much looking forward to continuing the work throughout the year! The ESC in 2024 is scheduled to be in Mexico at the same time as COP29 and will help us to prepare for COP30.
