Greta Rebellion Alarm 30 NOV – #FridaysforFuture

We must change ourselves.

Why should I study for a future that is not available?

To all of you out there: it’s time for civil disobedience. It’s time to rebel.

What you do now, we, the children, cannot change when we grow older.

 

Many say Sweden is a minor nation and that what we do does not matter. But if some school students can make world news just because we skipped school for a few days – imagine what we can accomplish if we all work in Togethernessship.
Every person counts. Just like any greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Each SINGLE GHG kilo. Everything counts in large amounts. So, please treat the climate crisis as the emergency crisis it is and give us a
future.
– Our lives was in your hands.

The adults have failed us. And since most of them, including the press and the politicians, keep ignoring the situation, we must take action into our own hands.

 

The Earth is not dying, it’s being killed. And the people killing it have names and addresses.

We are the Government and we are here to help.

Maybe if the people in power listened to the climate scientists and took action to stop dangerous climate change then we wouldn’t have to resort to all become climate activists.

What is the point in expecting kids to study science and logic in school and go onto STEM based professions when our government won’t even listen to and act on the advice of the World’s top scientists?

We’re choosing to no longer be powerless. We will be striking with thousands of other students, to show we will not stand for our government’s inaction on climate change – Well be voting soon.

Im striking for school consider it a climate lesson.

We need to keep fossil fuels in the ground if we are to have any hope of a safe climate.

Young people will face the consequences of climate change long after the current political leaders are gone. They aren’t going to be around when climate change hits us the most so we need to be doing something now.
This is just the beginning.

 

Some said I should be in school. But why should any young person be made to study for a future when no one is doing enough to save that future? What is the point of learning when the most important facts given by the finest scientists are ignored by our politicians?

This is not a warning it’s an Alarm of the future of humanity.

Our leaders are behaving like children, turning parliaments into kindergarten schoolyards, we will have to take the responsibility they should have taken long ago,” she said. “We have to understand what the older generation has dealt to us, what mess they have created that we have to clean up and live with. We have to make our voices heard.

 

Wise statements by Greta Thunberg, you cannot argue against

Global Call; Support Climate Strike every Friday
https://tvb-climatechallenge.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/30-NOV.pdf

Greta Thunberg is the the schoolgirl who, following Sweden’s hottest summer ever, decided to go on school strike and sit in front of the parliament to get politicians to act on #climatechange and align with the #ParisAgreement. Read her messages on #climateaction at #COP24.

All local governments need to draft Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Plan (#UCEEP)

All local governments need to draft Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Plan (#UCEEP) (.pdf-document for download here)

Dealing with a climate crisis has now gone #planetary — planners and policy makers alert the importance for vulnerable citizens of having an Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Plan policy in place for the outcome of the New Urban Agenda, proven realistic in an actual emergency. Environment havocs in the footsteps of climate change require for the first time to mainstream conservation disaster relief planning.

Non-avoidable risk-impact assessment in urban planning and design – #wuf9

For once, please put your professional career on hold for just six days and take it to the 9th World Urban Forum (WUF9).

 

In just 17 years nothing is going to look the same again. The unprecedented threats from our changing climate being discussed are: Multi- droughts, floods, heat-waves, superstorms, forest fires, land degradation or tree diseases (beetles or fungi) and acid rains will have hit everyone everywhere. Mass-migration, warfare, airborne viruses, pathogen diseases and epidemies just to mention a few of the forth coming horrors… To slow down these non-avoidable man-made (non-climate related) hazard scenarios emergency and evacuation, we need to plan urban resilience right now.

Local government leaders must prioritise climate change action (CCA) to mitigate and prepare for urban disaster risk reduction (DRR).

 

The World Urban Forum is the one existing multi-scalar context to plan and prepare for global development in our changing climate, please take learning from its extensive and comprehensive programme and discussions between 7th to 13th February – http://wuf9.org. It offers a unique opportunity to share good practices from the cities resilience profiling programmes on the development and mainstreaming of DRR plans and multi-stakeholder’s engagement in the operationalization of resilience building strategies.

 

WUF9 will provide insightful examples for cities not only on the planning and implementing of the risk-sensitive plans but also on engaging multi-sectoral dialogue in resilience building processes.

 

This is a final call upon local governments leaders to develop integrated local Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Resilience plans to guide their actions. Professionals, promote local-level-authorities power and capacity for resilience in developing and implementing DRR policies and actions in local legislation. It takes time to invest and deliver urban shock tolerance.

 

This call is as in effect an early warning system as a way of raising awareness and mobilising public interest more than that public demand for changes to reduce disaster risk.

 

Six days of your life, you can do this.

 


 

If worst come to worst, we must NOW plan for underground living. Urban Underground Space with the aim to increase mobility, liveability and resilience of urban area. Places urban underground space within the context of climate change, city resilience and rapid urbanisation.

Climate Chance World Summit – Agadir declaration of climate actors

WooW Ecopreneurs,

I took part in 2nd Climate Chance World Summit 4 days of recommendations for non-state actors, time for action. Really a Climate Chance action opportunity (operative), with United Nations normative Climate Action Agenda it’s a match made in Heaven. The success of Climate Chance 2017 offer a mandate to go ahead and fulfil an important role, the urgency of implementation of the SDGs together with the New Urban Agenda.

Debated was a proposed platform for Multi-actors governance and Multi-stakeholders to carry out this future operative role. An independent UN Partner for Decentralized Urban Cooperation to Assess and Enhance Strategic Effectiveness of UN perhaps?

With the new much needed global grassroots platform for Climate Innovation Labs Ecopreneurs for the Climate has an impacting role to play. An instrument for facilitative dialouge in bridging the gap between non-state climate organisers and implementers engaged in the fight against climate change 🙂 #COP23 #WUF9 #Cities4All #Cities2030

Climate Change Centre Reading / Ecopreneurs for the Climate in Reading

(Ecopreneurs for the Climate, a glocal community of climate practice, a global network of climate innovation labs #ECO4CLIM17) Priorities should be aimed at resilience and urban disaster response with reinsurance ~ “Leaving no one behind”

Background

The Climate Chance World Summit 2017 has just ended in Agadir, Morocco. With 5,000 participants from 80 nationalities, this summit represents a real success and reinforces the Climate Chance approach as a framework for enhanced cooperation between non-State actors.

#ccagadir2017: Launch of local and regional elected representatives of Africa to mobilize African civil society.

Please find here the text of the Agadir Declaration by climate actors, adopted at the closing plenary of the Summit this Wednesday 13 September.

The #Agadir declaration of the non-state Climate Actors “Intensify together action and ambition” #OnePlanet #Katowice #COP24

This declaration was prepared with the focal points of the major groups recognized by the UN (environmental NGOs, trade unions, businesses, local governments, indigenous peoples, youth, women and so forth.). It has already been signed by a significant number of the leading world networks of climate actors (CGLU, ICLEI, NRG4SD, R20, C40, YOUNGO, AIMF, CAN, WECF, CSI/ITUC, IPACC…)

Entitled “Stepping up climate action and goals together” w/ the #MarrakeshPartnership #PlanetClimate #OnePlanetSummit, this declaration, which follows on from the two previous declarations from the “Climate and territories – Lyon, 2015” and “Climate Chance – Nantes, 2016” Summits, is not meant to be yet another declaration of intent, but rather a specific roadmap to backup and roll out concrete action more widely in local territories and consolidate the frameworks for dialogue between non-State and national government climate actors, particularly in connection with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Climate Chance place particular emphasis on the importance of the facilitative dialogue planned for 2018 and the need to reassess States’ ambition as set out in their voluntary contributions (NDCs), which could draw on the mobilization and capacity for action of their climate actors who are still frequently ignored or undervalued.

We agree with its points – content and are proud to be a signatory for the “Déclaration d’Agadir / Climate Chance World Summit of climate actors” to be presented at COP23 etc.

– The necessity for a common approach regarding climate and development;
– The necessity for an easier access to finance, particularly for actors in developing States;

– Key point for this non-State actors’ roadmap: to get ready to contribute to the evaluation of the 2018 voluntary contributions (NDCs), each State will present to the Paris Agreement framework.

As an vital driver for urban resilience progress;
– Being an operational stakeholder and partner with non-governmental actors, civil society and private sectors at all levels for urgent implementation.

We fully support The declaration of Local and Subnational Leaders of Africa « Fighting against climate change in Africa together »

Wouldn’t we prefer to see purpose-driven agenda, with one purpose to sustain, all urban human activities..

The declaration focuses especially on the challenges of adaptation, access to funding and the importance of the thematic coalitions and sectoral plans of action. It stresses the willingness of non-State climate actors to work more closely with the scientific community pending the next IPCC reports and pays homage to the mobilization of American elected representatives, businesses, researchers and NGOs through the “We are still in” initiative.
