In order to capture the attention during the 26th climate conference in Glasgow, Youth4Planet organized two biking events between Luxemburg and Glasgow and invited us as AiREAS to join. The events have the objective to engage local people, especially our younger generations, and local institutions to demonstrate how we deal with the shared responsibilities for our sustainable progress as a species within the context of our planetary reality. Many citizen’s initiatives have already succesfully been started, often together with their facilitating local government, within the confinement of local urban and rural priorities.
The biking event wants to make these initiatives visible to all and connect them into a cooperative, connecting movement with video challenges, workshops and events in all participating areas. We all share the same objectives of sustainable wellness and progress. Let us show the world that we can carry this responsibility and show our progress.
The UN 2021 climate conference, COP26, will be held in Glasgow from Nov. 1st till 12th. We (citizens and youth) are done with the endless political talkshows as window dressing. Massive landscape destruction, pollution, abuse of power, corruption, wars, etc are destructive instruments of the old industrial self centered lobby and the related money dependent, speculative governments. Many citizen’s initiatives stood up already to make the difference against the capitalist hegamony and tunnel visioned, even corrupt government structures. Often these initiatives gained support of the local community governments, showing the powerful grassroots union between people and institutions around shared responsibilities. These positive, bottom up cooperations are often replaced or disturbed by dictatorial censorships, bribes, authorized polution, lack of responsibility, diverted investment priorities, higher up in the political economic hierarchies.
In order to create a powerful counterplatform all these local initiatives need to UNITE into a common purpose driven platform that shows that “It is happening”. In order to engage these initiative and create a European and Global movement we have already created a network from Luxemburg to Glasgow. Sustainocracy is participating as such grassroots principle of shared responsibility, focused on our core natural human values, necessary for sustainable human resilience and progress. We have engage with the Earthbeat initiative of Youth4Planet (Luxembourg and Germany) and Unstitution (Oxford, UK) to knit together all the local initiatives for planetary and humanitarian balance.
