Entangled Africa and climate change in the past

Global climate change has been a central topic of worldwide politics and public opinion in recent years. The “Fridays for Future” movement brings the younger generation onto the streets to underline the issue. The current pandemic is hopefully used as an opportunity to overcome the economic crisis that has arisen by providing targeted support for climate-neutral projects. And even the awarding of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize to United Nations World Food Programme is linked to this event. […]

Und selbst die Vergabe des diesjährigen Friedensnobelpreises an die Welthungerhilfe steht in Verbindung mit diesem Geschehen. […]
