We want to celebrate our 10th anniversary while launching a collaborative learning challenge to help generate opportunities for common reflection and action, especially seizing a moment where we are globally redefining priorities to build societies that are more resilient and fair. Within this process, we got inspiration from with a wide array of initiatives that are generating systemic changes worldwide.
The deeper the crisis, the more likely people won’t ask to go back to previous normal, but a qualitative leap to something better. In that sense, the climate crisis is transforming the planet and its ecosystem, forcing us to adapt to less stable conditions, and emergencies that are more violent and extreme. The huge fires in Australia and the United States, the extreme record temperatures in all latitudes, and even the Covid-19 pandemic, are all impact indicators of the climate crisis. The good news is that there are innovations pointing towards multidimensional answers to this crisis and the need of adaptation, while at the same time enabling the acceleration towards an equitable transition.
