GC’s  (Generation C)

is the new incarnation of Global Citizen

World situation assessment

The COVID crisis of 2020 is indicative of the inability of our modern societies to cope with global events. This pandemic, which was predicted by infectious disease specialists, has undermined the neoliberal economical system. A system that only benefits a small fraction of the wealthiest while destroying our environment. 

 

But the previous system has to lead us all into this current situation. Should we go back there or invent a new way of thinking of living together in sharing values such as solidarity, sincerity, ethics, and responsibility? A world where, we humans, are masters of our evolution and not a slave to certain economic interests?

 

All around our planet, youth are starting to mobilize to demand the states and big companies to fight against global warming and against irreversible degradation of the environment with all the consequences that this will have on our future lives.

 
Our future is today at stake. According to a growing number of scientists, and experts, we have barely a few years left to reverse the dynamics that currently govern the world and avoid the worst.

 

The problems we have to face in the years to come are complex. It is our duty to come together to solve them in harmony, cohesion, and knowing how to live together.

The world’s population will increase by 20% by 2035 with more mouths to feed and reduced agricultural capacity due to climate change. Uncontrollable migrations already underway will add to existing problems.

 

“The planet and its ecosystems will be affected in the coming years by various human and natural mutations. These disturbances will expose populations to new vulnerabilities and the need for water, food, health services, energy, and infrastructure.

 

The already visible climate changes will make the weather less and less predictable and stable with droughts and floods. Marine biodiversity will decline due to ocean warming and acidification. The Mekong level decreases due to the dams, its fish decrease, and its delta becomes salinized making the cultivation of rice difficult. The pollution of water, air, and food will be such that serious health problems will be added to various pressures.

 

All living beings (animal, vegetal and human) health will be affected by heat waves generating new processes for the spread of infectious diseases. The destruction of a huge number of animals by humans will affect human life. "

 

Extract from: "The world in 2035 seen by the CIA". Ed. I read 2017.

 

Climate and environmental change will challenge systems in various ways, undermining what we have just experienced with the COVID 19 pandemic. Generation C is part of an urgent logic to reformulate a world that will face its challenges. A world of symbiosis, solidarity, resiliency, and peace will finally be able to see the light of day.
