The New Humanism Project at the United Nations Resilience Frontiers gathering in South Korea, 8 – 12 April 2019

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.

Truant for climate

Inspired by the climate protests of young activist Greta Thunberg (Sweden), 3,000 young Belgian school pupils also skipped school today.

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.
