WORK IN PROGRESS
UNited for Future!
Humanity needs the international, science and solidarity-based cooperation of human beings in order to face the challenges of the climate crisis. Science makes it clear: the climate crisis requires a rapid change from fossil fuels to a climate-friendly economy and way of life within the next 10 years.
The next 14 months will be crucial for this, especially for the younger generation. In the UN negotiations on the topics of the future, climate, nature, oceans, human rights and sustainability, far-reaching decisions are to be taken in 2019 and 2020 which will set the framework for the action of the states in the coming decades.
The political results at the United Nations, on the other hand, are being prepared at the national level and many people are not aware of the importance of the international negotiations in 2019 and 2020.
We want to change that.
To this end, OnHour plans to use public viewing to carry the UN negotiations and upstream political national and regional (EU) policy processes – embedded in a moderated explanatory programme – to central, public locations in our cities – e.g. in Berlin at the Brandenburg Gate. And invites everyone to take a look at the international negotiations together and discuss them with us. The transfer of democratic processes to prominent, public places strengthens the common sense of responsibility within and between societies.
OnHour – UNited for Future! is dedicated to children and young people. For a peaceful and good future for all.
UNite & organize: after the Public Viewing is before the next UN Conference
OnHour – UNited for Future! is looking for lokal partners in Santiago de Chile, Geneva, Lisbon, New York, Beijing, Glasgow. And all other cities, countries that want to be there.
Soon the Toolbox Watchparties and the online-Organizer will start. Yoou will find them on the german website onhour.de:
OnHour – UNited for Future! is supported by numerous partners from society and politics: civil society, academia, universities, schools, subject- and profession-specific groups and alliances from the world of work and civil society can contribute to the provision of offers on future topics.
