New project for addressing climate change

Aug 28, 2008 Comments Off on New project for addressing climate change by

Feasta is launching an ambitious new project for addressing climate change on an international level. Just as a group of Swiss citizens, who were tired of appealing to warring armies to treat civilians and prisoners decently, set up the International Red Cross 150 years ago by calling a conference and inviting the governments that bothered to attend to subscribe to the IRC’s principles, we intend to adopt the same approach on climate change. Find out more about the project in Feasta’s discussion forum here.
