Context
Humankind is currently on  the  verge  of  an
unprecedented   global-scale    environmental
crisis. Climate-related disasters,  the  loss
of biodiversity, extinctions  of  animal  and
vegetable species and damage to  agriculture,
food   supply,   human   health   and   ocean
ecosystems   are   only   a   few   of    the
consequences we face. The change  in  natural
cycles caused by global warming  can  already
be felt throughout the globe and is  expected
to worsen, endangering our planet's life.

On the other hand,  the  climate  crisis  can
also bring many opportunities, especially  an
increase  of  collective  awareness  enabling
the current generation to  unite  efforts  to
save the planet.

The solution to the challenges we are  facing
relies entirely on our  organizational  power
and   our   capacity    to    overcome    our
differences.  In  this  context,  the  crisis
gives  us  a  chance  to  do  something   few
generations   in   history   have   had   the
opportunity  to  do:  create  a  generational
commitment;  the  enthusiasm  of   having   a
powerful moral  purpose;  a  unifying  cause;
clarity in knowing how to act to improve  our
quality  of  life  in   the   present   while
building a better  future  for  our  children
and grandchildren.

Our view
We are living through a moment of  awakening:
the awareness of the fact that everything  is
interconnected  and  that  nothing   in   the
universe  can  live   in   isolation.   Every
individual's actions affect everybody  else's
lives.

In this  context,  the  environmental  crisis
