This special issue of The Young Geographer magazine explores the hopes for the future. A few highlights for me:
“Everyday we are one step closer to achieving equality for all and it will hopefully happen in our lifetime.” Zoe Mainus, 14
Elizabeth Dirth, chair of the 2050 Climate Group, writes about why we don’t need better climate policies:
“We do not need better climate policies or more climate action; we need better energy, finance and investment, waste, agriculture, transport, health, planning and education policies.”
“A climate change policy-action gap implies the gap between climate change policy and action is the problem, but actually it is the gap between climate policy and all other areas of policy and action that is the problem.”
Please do have a good read through this treasure trove of insights.
