This week Switzerland voted against climate change measures. There were two reasons. 1. Switzerland is responsible for only 0.1% of global emissions. 2. The vote indicates that the country is prioritizing its post-Covid economic recovery more than the environment.
While it makes complete sense as a country, when you read the other news coming in around the climate (see latest below) one has to wonder if democracy will become the enemy of being able to get the job done? Equally, if every country had the attitude of: we don’t do too much damage, well all countries can claim that, right?
Well maybe not China and the US, but most. Especially when what should be measured, isn’t. At least Australia is getting a kicking over its lack of action. One good thing I suppose.
Equally, I’m sure Switzerland’s contribution to climate change, through what its banks fund, would give us a very different picture to 0.1%. Time for global responsibility to be measured, not just in-country activity. Those numbers would be alarming.
Every country on this planet needs to understand that now is the time to do everything possible to move in the right direction. Sir David Attenborough message to the G7 is we are out of time, and we must move now, right now.
One thing is for sure. We have to fight for this with everything we have, for our children’s future.
Singapore employees are one of the least engaged in the world! My friend Anne Phey published this great piece, and while focused on Singapore, I am alarmed by the consistent stat of 80% of people are not engaged in their work. To me, it’s a leadership issue and it’s a societal issue. How can we address this and change it?
