Café Aspen at RNE: «Climate change and intergenerational justice»

_

Last June 18, 2021, we held the seventh session of Café Aspen at RNE, with a dialogue on «Climate change and intergenerational justice» with Teresa Cavero, Independent Consultant on International Development and Cooperation and Aspen España Fellow, Emilio Luque, Profesor of Environment and Society at UNED, Iván Martén, Chairman of Orkestra- Basque Institute of Competitiveness and Trustee of Aspen Institute España and José M. de Areilza Carvajal, Secretary General of Aspen Institute España.

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges we face globally and there is a need for climate action. We are beginning to see its consequences, and they are expected to be much greater in the years to come. The rise in the level of the oceans, the air quality, climate refugees or the infectious diseases transmission are just some examples of the impact that climate change can have on current generations, but mainly on the next.

What responsibility do we have towards future generations? Is there still time to stop climate change? Is there really a generation gap in this regard? What role should we play individually and collectively? Is our way of living compatible with climate sustainability? Are there viable and sustainable alternatives to the current production model that is putting our planet at risk? Do we have the mechanisms and institutions to do it?

Aspen Institute España, together with Radio Nacional de España, develops a space for reflection in which a diverse group of Aspen Alumni meets to escape from an increasingly polarized political environment and discuss ideas for action. These programs are directed and moderated by Íñigo Alfonso, Aspen Institute España Fellow, and are broadcast on “Las mañanas de RNE”.
