The economies and populations that are the main contributors to the climate crisis are least affected by the consequences. With the European Green Deal, the EU claims for itself a pioneering role in climate protection, but does it have solutions ready that do justice to the structural inequality and unfair distribution of social, economic and political opportunities between the communities that populate the earth? In the online event on 24 November 2021 the discussion drew on Concepts for Climate Justice, featuring Maria Fernanda Espinosa, Ecuadorian diplomat, politician, academic and former president of the 73rd UN-General Assembly.

Webtalk Series "Totally Glocally" – Europe from the outside: Dealing with the Climate Crisis
The series of events organized by the ifa – Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations) addresses current issues concerning the interaction between the global and the local. Attention was focused on positive examples of cooperation, own scope for action and social innovations in the context of climate change. How does the world look at Europe from the outside, and what hopes, but also disappointments, are attached to it? What role should global networks, supranational organizations and international civil society play in the context of the challenges posed by climate change? And how might international cultural relations help mediate on these issues? These and other questions were discussed in a total of three events, which were moderated by Ecologic Institute and supported in terms of content and organization during preparation and implementation.
