We care! Climate solidarity across generations
Youth has the voice!
We, in the Baltic Sea Region, want to speak across generations on the most important issues. Pomorskie Region Marshal and BSSSC Chairman Mieczysław Struk and the European Solidarity Centre together with the Pomorskie youth and climate activists invite you to the BSSSC Spring Youth Event to take place on April 19-21, 2020 in Gdańsk, Poland.
We already know that climate crisis is upon us and threatens life of future generations and the world as we know it. In solidarity with the youth of today, generations to come and the nature we want to discuss the most immediate dangers: how each and every one of us can contribute to a better life; how to critically react to information flow, telling the truth from fakes and getting to know the whole picture?
The event should help to answer several key questions:
What can we do to reduce greenhouse gases emissions?
How can we use natural resources more efficiently?
How to produce less waste?
Which measures are the most effective?
How can each of us contribute to make a real change?
What can we demand from politicians and decision-makers?
Working together and across the Baltic Sea we can be more effective. Our voice will be much stronger, so decision-makers will have to listen. It will be important to take your voice to the EUSBSR Annual Forum in Turku , the Conference on the Future of Europe launched by the European Commission and other fora dealing with the state of our planet and condition of our lives.
Acting in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals we have to find realistic, down‑to‑earth solutions. And promote them!
