Aligning the Needs of People, Nature and the Planet

When it comes to climate policy making (and policy making in general), there is an emotional and ethical disconnect. We have been taught that feelings and emotions should not be included in such decisions. But we need to become more sensible about the effects that policies actually have on people’s lives. Xiye Bastida emphasizes the need to include Indigenous Peoples and alternative viewpoints in decision making to ensure a livable future for nature and people, especially for those in the poorest nations of the planet. Speaker: Xiye Bastida, Climate Activist, Re-Earth Initiative This session was held at GreenBiz Group’s VERGE 21, October 25-28, 2021.
