Greens can be the political voice of the climate movement

Greens can be the political voice of the climate movement

Many of those taking to the streets to protest against injustice and inequality are disillusioned with party politics and institutions. So how can Green elected representatives at the European level show that they share these concerns and that they can be a credible voice to represent citizens in the political arena?

The winding road to Paris

The UN and EU, taken over by ‘corporate capture’ aren’t doing enough to tackle climate change. Non-governmental organisations are concentrating their efforts on fostering a broad movement that will go beyond Paris 2015, because if governments do fail to deliver, action to tackle climate change will remain essential.

A climate for change

The ecological challenge should no longer be addressed solely as an environmental issue. Rather, it should be considered a social one. A riveting French report makes the relationship between the environment and 21st century lifestyles amazingly concrete.

The run-up to Paris 2015: a change of paradigm in the climate movement

This article is in: Volume 9

Authors:

The bitter disappointment at the failure of previous climate summits dealt a serious blow to climate activism. But now, with COP 21 on the horizon, a new movement is building across Europe. Greens have the opportunity to be a voice for this movement, but only if they succeed in convincing citizens that they hear their demands for change and will see their commitments through.

Bringing light: social aspects of the energy agenda

This article is in: Volume 9

Authors:

In order for green ideas on energy to resonate in the mainstream, questions need to be answered about how the transition will be financed, and how it will benefit those are already marginalised and struggling economically. A positive initiative targeting the Roma minority in Hungary shows one way in which this can be achieved.

Poverty and the climate crisis are two sides of the same challenge

This article is in: Volume 9

Authors:

Poverty and the ecological crisis are different symptoms of the same crisis Europe and the world are experiencing. Only a responsible commitment based on social justice, eco-development and sustainability can assure a safe common future. The case of Portugal illustrates the challenges faced worldwide.

Africa needs a fair and equitable Global Climate Agreement

This article is in: Volume 9

Authors:

The two things that will shape Africa’s progress in the coming years and decades are its population demographics and climate change. The confluence of these two phenomena will undoubtedly tip the scales of development in Africa; how they are managed, now and in the future, will determine to which side the scales will tip.

Europe and the fight against Climate Change

This article is in: Volume 9

Authors:

Translations: FR |

To understand how we came to the current state of stagnation in international climate change negotiations, we need to return to the very beginning, and trace how the process and the roles of the various actors have evolved. An analysis of the geopolitical balance demonstrates that we need a paradigm shift away from neoliberalism and technical, top-down ‘solutions’ if we are to make the changes needed to tackle climate change.

War in Ukraine and Europe's energy conservation and climate policies

This article is in: Volume 9

Authors:

A big risk for Europe stems from its dependency on Russian natural gas and oil. However, even more important is the fact that it is EU money which pays for the gas and oil, which enables Russia´s militarisation and its belligerent behaviour. In this context, the current conflict constitutes an historic opportunity and an urgent motivation for a reduction of energy consumption and Greenhouse gas emissions in both the EU and Ukraine
