Communities for Future
Our Response to the Climate Emergency
February 1-10, 2020
Achieving climate justice has been the primary motivation behind Martin's career in tackling climate change. He sees our current crisis as an opportunity and a catalyst for deeper cooperation in manifesting our visions of sustainability. Martin calls on us to speak up and make our voices heard as we can only achieve our climate goals if we mobilize at the grassroots and empower those already doing the work. He also reminds us that the ways we invest our money, both individually and through large climate funds, can shift the ways we value and handle food and lead us to a better future.
