Moderator: Catarina Rolfsdotter 

If we are to stay below 1,5 °C global warming, emissions have to peak no later than 2020. That is less than 800 days from now. Emissions must also be cut by half by 2030, and to zero by 2050. We need an immediate emergency response by policymakers, businesses and civil society, aimed at an unprecedented transformation of all sectors of society. The Club of Rome’s Climate Emergency Plan, presented by Anders Wijkman, outlines an immediate course of action for policymakers. This will be the point of departure for a solutions-oriented seminar that advances the conversation on how to demand and create real change. We will learn about innovative technical platforms, the transition from conventional growth economics, how to successfully create political change and the growing power of youth movements.

It's time to act!

His Wall Street experience eventually led him to the conclusion that human civilization has a catastrophically flawed 'operating system', Money and mainstream growth Economics.  Together they constitute a 'meme', a non-genetic 'thought virus,' that has taken humanity as its host.  True to form, this 'virus' destroying the host by converting the natural world on which we depend, into Money as rapidly as possible, with no regard for the well-being of humanity or the biosphere.

Maja Rosén (SWE)

Maja Rosén is the founder of “Vi håller oss på Jorden” (We stay on the ground), an organisation that aims to spread awareness of the climate impact of flying and to work towards reduced air traveling. Vi håller oss på jorden runs the campaign “Flygfritt 2019” (Flight-free 2019), in which people pledge to stay on the ground for a year – provided that 100 000 Swedes promise to do the same thing. This way we can take a collective responsibility to reduce our emissions and show the world, including our political leaders, that we are collectively willing to solve the climate crisis. Maja believes that the most important thing we can do to reduce our impact on the climate is to demonstrate our commitment through our actions, and to talk to each other about the climate crisis. She is convinced that everyone carries a slumbering climate fighter within them – but many of us need a nudge to awaken from our passive slumber.
