Puede que los diarios hablen de crisis financiera y económica, pero cuando miramos a nuestro alrededor no vemos derivados ni mercados financieros. Lo que vemos es la destrucción de comunidades, de nuestros entornos sociales y naturales, de nuestras relaciones mutuas. Lo que vemos es el capitalismo destruyéndonos. Frente a esta destrucción y la austeridad que sigue su estela, la gente está... Read more

When initial reports appeared in the media that a new bill had been introduced that would alter the way the state regulates education, the arts and social services, many people refused to believe that it would actually be passed.

EU-China Civil Society Forum: Climate Change Conference

English

The Copenhagen summit highlighted the dilemmas facing negotiators coming from either side of the North-South divide: the question of financial resources and technology to deal with mitigation and adaptation, the issue of developed countries' climate debt, global inequity, and the unsustainable nature of dominating forms of economic development. The EU-China Civil Society Forum aims to strengthen cooperation between the two regions, looking at possibilities, conditions and limitations for European-Chinese civil society cooperation in promoting low carbon economies. It discusses conflicting interests and trade-offs as well as the social implications of transforming growth oriented economies to low carbon economies.

The International Civil Society Conference builds on the June 2009 workshop “Global Concerns Global Cooperation” in Guangzhou. This workshop brought up the strong wish for building European-Chinese civil society networks. The International Civil Society Conference is a step towards the realisation of this wish.

The International Civil Society Conference brings together people from European and Chinese civil society organisations concerned by climate change. In addition, it is open to the public, though places are limited.

Sponsors: Heinrich Boell Foundation, European Climate Foundation, Evangelischer Entwicklungsdienst (Church Development Service), European Union and Brot für die Welt (Bread for the World).

Luego de hacer estragos en su patria de origen, Estados Unidos, el “virus neoliberal”, para usar la acertada expresión de Samir Amin, ha contagiado Europa. Ante los síntomas inocultables de la crisis, los mercados reaccionan con su explosiva mezcla de rapacidad e irracionalidad y evidencian su escepticismo ante las recetas de salida de la crisis elaboradas por el G-20, el FMI o el BM.
