We are invited to participate in a ‘disruptive brainstorming conference’ on the future of resilience, organised by the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Happy to be among (what they call) ‘100 visionary thinkers and thought leaders’ from international organizations and non-profit, private and academic/research entities, and looking forward to discuss visions for our common future against the backdrop of resilience.
We had talks about the New Humanism project with a number of nice and interesting people during and around the 57th Session of the United Nations Commission for Social Development, taking place from 11 to 21 February 2019 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
They gathered in Brussels with one clear message: “There is no planet B”. Their plan is to repeat this every Thursday until an appropriate response comes from Belgian politics.
We endorse this kind of subversive yet constructive actions and admire these young inspired activists.
Just Like Greta Thunberg, Gaston was present at the climate conference of Katowice. You can read his view (in Dutch) on the faltering of international climate change negotiations on the news site APACHE.
