Thematic day on Climate, Ecology and the Environment at the World Social Forum (WSF)

29 January 2021

Summary

UTC 13–14:45 Major Panel: CLIMATE EMERGENCY AND SPECIES EXTINCTION. RESIST! CONSTRUCT! CELEBRATE! At Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86746954026

UTC 15–16:45 FOUR (4) PARALLEL SESSIONS

UTC 17–18 ASSEMBLY FOR THE ECOLOGY SPACE

The purpose of the Environmental Thematic Day common program is to exchange experiences from different parts of the world to see how the environmental struggles can be part of a system change.

It begins with an intercontinental dialogue in which the two current issues of climate emergency and species extinction are discussed together. This is followed by four parallel sessions where the first deepens the issue of the current situation in the struggle for system change and not climate change with only young speakers and moderators. Two others sessions ask the question of how the environmental struggle in the countryside and in the city with their different social, ecological and economic conditions can contribute to system change. The fourth session raises the question of how the local and global struggle can be linked to save a planet where humanity can live a fruitful life. These sessions end with a subsequent self-organized assembly where the results of the various sessions during the day and a pre-started declaration process lead to proposals for a joint action plan for continued cooperation between popular movements to change the system and stop environmental destruction.
