Every year the reports of the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change are more clear: we have to urgently phase out the use of fossil fuels to bring down CO2 emissions. Still policy makers continue to talk about false solutions like biofuels, as is likely to happen again at the UN climate conference in Paris at the end of this year. After two decades of negotiations, emissions continue to rise.
The good news: we can still stop catastrophic climate change from happening. During this evening we will discuss why it’s time to take action ourselves. We will talk about climate action, focussing on the Climate Games held for the second time this July in the harbour of Amsterdam, and “Ground Control”, the climate and agriculture camp. The harbour is home to the coal and biofuels industry and therefore a great place to playfully start solving the problem. Join us tonight and find out more about how to get involved in the game!
