The world’s climate scientists say we need to keep the global temperature increase below 2◦ C to have a good chance of keeping the future climate stable. The global climate has already warmed by about 0.8◦ C. This has already led to more storms, floods, droughts, heat waves and melting of the Arctic ice in the summer.
As older adults our generation has contributed to those emissions, failing to respond to the seriousness of the threat whilst benefiting from the society that has contributed to our current situation.
Now, we as older adults, are advocating not on our own behalf, but for the generations who will inherit this world, the changes necessary to ensure the future health and well-being of our own and others grandchildren.
Join us the Elders for Future Generations bloc on the 7th March 2015 at Lincoln Inns Field, London at 12.30pm
