Green Finance Briefing: Burning for change

Extreme heat is breaking records all around the world, inflationary headwinds cloud global economies, the war in Ukraine doesn’t look like it will stop anytime soon, and an energy crisis waits around the corner. It’s hard to pick a battle these days when so many things are out of our control. 

This year has been a lot, and we’re only halfway through. A story of conflict and stress, unearthing our incapacity to realize the change that’s needed for us to thrive – time and time again, it seems like we choose to prioritize immediate gains and personal ideals to the detriment of the wider community.

Maybe it’s this heat getting to my head, as I live in Europe, which is now experiencing record temperatures. But I hope that this wave proves once more the urgency of the climate crisis, and that we all need to collectively ask ourselves if our habits, lifestyle, and jobs are sustainable or if they contribute in any way to a livable future. 

“Half of humanity is in the danger zone, from floods, droughts, extreme storms and wildfires. No nation is immune. Yet we continue to feed our fossil fuel addiction. We have a choice. Collective action or collective suicide. It is in our hands,” said UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres at a recent event.
