19 : 00 . If we don’t make ‘real’ changes now, our children will have to live in a very different planet than this one – and that won’t be a pleasant planet to live in. Climate change is central to our generation’s fight against a broken system – a corporatist system that does not respect the planetary boundaries! That is what drives me to work on this issue: I think it still is possible to change the system and that government regulation is the best way to do so. I think Europe could do more. Climate change isn’t yet on the priority list of things, but it should be.
