CASSANDRA HOUR GLASS
It’s not the point anymore to debate about the opportunity to manage the impact of the climate change and the life-threatening situation. New studies are coming up every week and the IPCC and IPBES are on a regular basis reporting the up to date analysis.
2018 and even more 2019 with extreme weather events showed us the urgent need for action while the average temperature “only” increased by 1 degree.
We know that in order not to go above the target temperature increase of 1.5 – 2 degrees maximum by 2030, we need to reduce by 45% the gas emissions before 2030 and start decreasing the worldwide emissions after the peak anticipated for 2020.
However, despite the scientific alarming reports, nothing catches enough our attention, individually or collectively!It is why we need a place, a symbol to remind us the constant urgency and to materialise the time impact and the need to act within the window of the remaining time before it is too late.
It is impossible to find future economic models, development models, it is impossible to change our ways of living and evolving without having in mind our biodiversity is on the verge of collapse and the planet « is burning »!! this window of remaining time.
The purpose of the project is to make people realise the real urgence of the situation through to the creation of a symbolic place:
The Cassandra Hour-Glass is composed of people from the civil society (scientists, philosophs, economists and others) convinced by the need to popularise the scientific data about the climate change to the general public, to inform about the urgent need to take action and to support action plans through the Hour-Glass symbol and the events around it.
