Upcoming webinar: Climate Justice and Peace

5 Dec 2020 - 6 Dec 2020,

We are back now with a follow-up to the exchanges we first had in April.

“Peace is like a little bird – the more you try to get a grip on it, the quicker it flies away.” This old saying implies that peace is neither a fixed category you can define by statistics like economic wealth nor a visible entity like climate change. For peace is attached to the very essence of the human being. Thus, peace is a multidimensional phenomenon and when we say today that peace is in a big crisis we don´t only talk about the absence of war, but about the economic, ecological, social, cultural crisis which above all has led us in an unaccountable crisis of democracy.

That’s why we feel especially nowadays the urgent need for a multidimensional response to this crisis which has ended up by putting in danger the world-peace from different angles.  Authoritarian neoliberal regimes have taken control of the power structures of a world shaken by pandemics, solitary confinements and economic disasters.

We want to invite you to join us online for a conference which is going to take place online on December 5th and 6th, 2020 on the 10th anniversary of thePrague Spring 2 network.
This time the following questions are going to be raised:

  • How can we organize a campaign in all parts of Europe for an eco-social transformation and disarmament and a Nuke Free Europe and Climate Justice?
  • How can communities strengthen each other across borders finding ways to build trust and resilience through local food production and stronger solidarity economies?
  • How can we dismantle authoritarian, military, trade and financial international regimes that support the continuation of racist colonial and neocolonial oppression and where and what can be the contribution of our organizations like trade unions, peasant and Human Rights organizations to peace and democracy?

Because it is clear that there cannot be any democracy without peace, no peace without democracy and no peace on Earth without peace with Earth.
