EuroNews reported: More than 50 world leaders have gathered for the 2019 United Nations Climate Change (COP25) conference at Madrid’s IFEMA convention centre. The event was supposed to take place in Chile but was moved due to civil unrest in the country: The Climate Summit, which should lay the framework for a new phase of climate action, starts today in the Spanish capital. #COP25 is the last UN Climate Summit before 2020, when many nations must submit new climate action plans.
“In Chile and the world we are experiencing social and environmental crises. In order to face them, we must return to our roots: we must listen to each other to rebuild trust and dialogue with a willingness to change”, explained Chilean environmental minister Carolina Schmidt.
Climate and equality:
Schmidt, who will preside over the negotiations during the summit, claimed that the way climate change affects the world is “unfair” as it mainly hurts vulnerable people, communities and countries.
US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi also mentioned that the climate crisis should be addressed in terms of “economic and environmental justice for all”. “We all believe that we have a moral responsibility to future generations to pass on this planet in a better way, the best possible way”, Pelosi said during the opening ceremony.
Ursula is official:
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is attending Madrid’s conference as her first official act. Von der Leyen has set high targets in the European Union’s policy to combat climate change, pledging to reduce the bloc’s carbon emissions by at least 50% by 2030.
On Sunday, her first day at the helm, she repeated to journalists her objective to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, meaning carbon emissions should be fully offset by measures that cut CO2, like planting trees.
The presidents of Argentina, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras and the Dominican Republic; the prime minister of Morocco, Saadeddine Othmani and Prince Albert of Monaco are some of the leaders that will be present this year.
Before the official opening, Spain’s acting Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez will meet the heads of state and government of the EU countries and the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres. During the afternoon, he will meet the leaders from Latin America.
