Cambio

It has taken a dinosaur to enter the UN to request that the guidelines on climate change be adopted now and be fulfilled with a seriousness that we have not yet seen.

For those who will precede us and for a planet that is not ours, that has a life and regeneration that we are not allowing. 

We hope that we are at the moment when the principles and respect for the environment and the other animals that share this planet are already reflected in real measures and economic interests cease to be the priority at this COP26 summit. Do not wait until 2030 to make the necessary commitments to reach the zero emission target.

For as the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, has already said: "If we do not act with determination, we are risking our last chance, literally, to change the course of things."
