FOUR (4) PARALLEL SESSIONS

UTC 17 - 18
ASSEMBLY FOR THE ECOLOGY SPACE

The purpose of the Environmental Thematic Day common program is to 
exchange experiences from different parts of the world to see how the 
environmental struggles can be part of a system change.

It begins with an intercontinental dialogue in which the two current 
issues of climate emergency and species extinction are discussed 
together. This is followed by four parallel sessions where the first 
deepens the issue of the current situation in the struggle for system 
change and not climate change with only young speakers and moderators. 
Two others sessions ask the question of how the environmental struggle 
in the countryside and in the city with their different social, 
ecological and economic conditions can contribute to system change. The 
fourth session raises the question of how the local and global struggle 
can be linked to save a planet where humanity can live a fruitful life. 
These sessions end with a subsequent self-organized assembly where the 
results of the various sessions during the day and a pre-started 
declaration process lead to proposals for a joint action plan for 
continued cooperation between popular movements to change the system and 
stop environmental destruction.
