Thoughts on the Coronavirus Crisis

World Future Council - 20. März 2020 - 12:59
Thoughts on the Covid-19 Pandemic

The Coronavirus pandemic is more than a health crisis. It is rooted in how we treat our planet, how we prioritise our public spendings – and it will impact our lives for much longer than we expect. Find be below a compilation of interesting thoughts of our Councillors and Honorary Councillors related to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Vandana Shiva: “Ecological Reflections on the Corona Virus

The health emergency that the corona virus is waking us up to is connected to the emergency of extinction and disappearance of species, and it is connected to the climate emergency. All emergencies are rooted in a mechanistic, militaristic, anthropocentric world view of humans as separate from, and superior to other beings who we can own, manipulate and control . It is also rooted in an economic model based on the illusion of limitless growth and limitless greed which systematically violates planetary boundaries and ecosystem and species integrity.

Otto Scharmer: “Eight Emerging Lessons: From Coronavirus to Climate Action

Having returned to the US from Europe on the last plane before the travel ban kicked in two days ago, I feel as if I have traveled backwards in time. Which is exactly what people report when they arrive in Europe from East Asia now. You feel as if you’re moving backward in time, back into an earlier state of awareness, which the country of departure had already moved past. Here are my eight takeaways.

Alyn Ware / Move the Money Campaign: “Shift resources from nukes to public health!”

[…] in 2018, Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates warned that the world should be “preparing for a pandemic in the same serious way it prepares for war” […]

But their warnings and recommendations went unheeded by the US government, which increased military spending in 2019 to $738 billion while cutting the Centre for Disease Control budget by 20% to $11 billion.

Coronavirus: Zukunftsdialoge abgesagt!

Klimawoche - 18. März 2020 - 10:07

Die Ausbreitung des Coronavirus zwingt auch uns leider, unsere Arbeit anders zu gestalten und geplante Veranstaltungen abzusagen: Die für den April organisierten Zukunftsdialoge in der Nordakademie Graduate School im „Dockland” in Altona finden natürlich nicht statt.

Wir arbeiten gerade mit Hochdruck daran zu klären, welche Möglichkeiten es gibt, diese Veranstaltungen im Vorfeld der 12. Hamburger Klimawoche in der ein oder anderen Form digital für Interessierte anzubieten. Über das Ergebnis informieren wir hier und über unsere Facebook-Seite.

Und wer uns aktuell erreichen möchte, schreibt am besten eine Mail an

Bleiben Sie alle gesund und befolgen Sie bitte die Empfehlungen von Ärzten*innen und Wissenschaftler*innen – bleiben Sie wann immer möglich zu Hause, das rettet Leben!

It sets international labour standards, promotes rights at work and encourages decent employment opportunities, the enhancement of social protection and the strengthening of dialogue on work-related issues. The ILO was founded in 1919, in the wake of a destructive war, to pursue a vision based on the premise that universal, lasting peace can be established only if it is based on social justice. The only tripartite U.N. agency, the ILO brings together governments, employers and workers of 187 member States, to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes promoting decent work for all women and men.

Achieving 100 % Renewable Energy for all – Lessons learned from the development of Renewable Energy roadmaps in the Global South

World Future Council - 16. März 2020 - 14:16
Achieving 100 % Renewable Energy for all – Lessons learned from the development of Renewable Energy roadmaps in the Global South

A well designed framework for 100%RE achieves the Paris climate targets and supports implementation of Agenda 2030.  Integrated 100%RE roadmaps aiming to achieve stable energy access for everybody while eradicating poverty and decarbonise the energy system are an obligation rather than an option for countries who signed both Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement.  100%RE can offer opportunities to identify synergies and complementarities between energy security, socio-economic development and climate change mitigation. Country-specific, long-term roadmaps, backed by key stakeholders can provide a positive vision and thus be a tool to develop the urgently needed political leaders in post-Paris times.

This report aims to distil the lessons learned from science-based Renewable Energy roadmap development with the aim of achieving 100% RE access for all by 2050 in line with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C target. The report’s findings are based on the processes of projects that have been set up in Tanzania, Bangladesh and Costa Rica.
