G20 and Growth

Apart from the G20’s apparent lack of effective strategy and implementation of its own pledges, its growth vision lacks full coherence with sustainable development. Instead of wishfully hoping to retrace an economic growth trajectory of the past, the G20 should advance coherent sustainable development.

International Co-operation

Progressive climate change, growing poverty, dwindling resources, and the loss of bio-diversity are interlinked problems – problems that will be uppermost in our minds for years to come. However, the international community does little to curtail these developments, as national interests tend to reign supreme. A political turnaround will only happen, if grassroots activism prevails. We participate in creating civil society structures that, wherever possible, campaign for a changed political framework that is able to bring about environmental and social change. Plenty of ideas are out there – and we would like to facilitate creative thinking and the building of new alliances.
