GREEN Party co-leaders have said that there is a need to do so much more and act swiftly to secure the future of our planet and of generations to come. If we are to see meaningful change
In conjunction with the beginning of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Green Party co-leaders Jonathan Bartley and Sian Berry issued the following statement on the event:
“It is good to see the World Economic Forum recognising the climate crisis among the top five risks facing the world in 2020.
“However there is the need to do so much more and act swiftly to secure the future of our planet and of generations to come. If we are to see meaningful change, the WEF should discuss radical steps to decarbonise our economy and radically transform the way in which we live, move and run our economy.
“Recognising the reality of climate chaos is not enough. We urge the people present in Davos to match their words with deeds. To discuss the need to implement Green New Deals all across the globe.
“On a human level, WEF should push for the international community to recognise and respond to the concept of climate refugees as acknowledged yesterday in a landmark UN ruling.
“Only real actions across these themes would show true leadership on the climate emergency.”
