The use and over-exploitation of natural resources by humankind has taken on an unprecedented extend. EU ESPAS Study says:
“if the temperature rises by more than 1.5 degrees we have to face even more droughts, floods, extreme heat and poverty. Forest fires will reach uncontrollable dimensions, migration will rise tremendously and the people will accumulate in the cities”.
UN IPBES-Report says out of the 8 million animal and plant species that exist worldwide, about 1million is threatened by extinction.
It‘s time for action, before it‘s too late.
