We will talk, not only about action but also about results.

Are we running in circles to respond to climate change? Isn’t it high time to break the vicious cycles and connect our strengths?

On Friday 24 September 2021, we will ask ourselves several questions: What is each one of us doing about climate change and its consequences? How can we increase the positive impact of our actions? Which barriers are we facing? How can we join hands with others to solve climate issues in Maastricht or elsewhere around the world?

Because is it only about (the lack of or low levels of) political will, public/private funds, scientific knowledge, sustainable business models, or citizens’ engagement? What else is missing? What (more) do we need to act and create (more) impact?

We will discuss all these questions and more during our Climate Circles and come up with collaborative solutions together. Join us!
