The world is confronted with urgent challenges. The global impacts of climate change are the greatest threat to the future of our planet. The concurrence of climate change, limitation of fossil fuels, climate change induced migration, food crisis, water crisis, energy crisis, biodiversity crisis and the 2008-2009 financial and economic crisis, deepening the debt crisis affecting individuals and states, might be an indicator that the whole system of production, consumption, profit maximisation, poverty and ecological destruction prevailing in industrialised countries runs into a deep and open-ended transformation crisis. The concurrence of these crises calls for urgent action. Climate justice should be a guiding principle for these changes. (From the Budapest Call for Climate justice)
The European Consultation on Poverty, Wealth and Ecology took place on 8-12 November 2010 in Budapest.
