Pubblichiamo gli esiti del sondaggio proposto da Miriana Cacciatori, Diana Lochi e Sherani Meegahatennage della 4B all’interno del loro lavoro di ricerca per il Tandem L’Homo Economicus dell’Università di Verona. Le studentesse dopo aver analizzato l’obiettivo 13, CLIMATE ACTION, dell’Agenda dello sviluppo sostenibile 2030 e la COP24, Conferenza ONU sul clima 2018, hanno inserito anche la loro ricerca con dati primari (366 risposte) raccolti all’interno della nostra scuola.
UN Climate Action Summit 2019
The impacts of climate change are being felt everywhere and are having consequences on people’s lives. Climate change is disrupting national economies; but there is a growing recognition that available solutions will let us all leap to cleaner economies.
An essential step to address climate change was the adoption of The Paris Agreement in 2015 which marked an historic turning point. World leaders concluded a new universal agreement within the context of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Last December at the UN Climate Change Conference COP24 in Poland, governments set to agree the guidelines of the Paris Agreement, therefore unleashing its full potential.
In November 2018, 184 states and the European Union have joined the Agreement.
To support efforts to implement the Paris Agreement and to increase ambition and climate action, UN Secretary-General António Guterres will bring world leaders to the Climate Action Summit on 23 September 2019.
The Summit will come exactly one year before countries will have to enhance their national climate pledges under the Paris Agreement.
In order to ensure that the transformative actions in the real economy are as impactful as possible, the Secretary-General has prioritized the following action portfolios, which are recognized as having high potential to curb greenhouse gas emissions and increased global action on adaptation and resilience: Finance, Energy Transition, Industry Transition, Nature-Based Solutions, Cities and Local Action, Resilience and Adaptation.
Greta Thunberg, la giovane attivista svedese, ha fatto un discorso emozionante e critico verso la classe politica mondiale alla COP24 di Katowice in Polonia lo scorso dicembre.
