Although the climate situation in Colombia is well known, there’s still a lot of layers to uncover that aren’t only environmentally related. We interviewed 19-year-old climate activist Emiliana Rickenmann, who grew up in Colombia, to give us a little background and her perspective on how the climate crisis in Colombia goes beyond environmental action. Rickenmann is part of Fridays For Future Bogotá and FFF Colombia, Latinas for Climate, and Climate Strike Switzerland.

Do you think activism in Colombia is accessible and/or secure? Why?

I think you have to see it…

Aunque el problema que trae la crisis climática a Colombia es conocido, este se compone de varias capas que no están solamente relacionadas con lo ambiental. Entrevistamos a Emiliana Rickenmann, una activista de 19 años que creció en Colombia y podría aportarnos su perspectiva sobre el estado de la crisis climática en el país. Rickenmann es parte de Fridays For Future Bogotá y FFF Colombia, Latinas for Climate, y Climate Strike Suiza.

On March 19th, 2021, students from all over the world took to the streets and their computers to demand that those in power act on their promises and deliver climate action and justice. By in person actions and through live streams, sending emails, calling elected officials, and taking photos, they demanded a transition away from fossil fuels, carbon budgets, intersectional and public climate policy, and the recognition of ecocide as an international crime. They called on Governments, the fossil fuel industry, and banks to implement a Just Transition. …

September 2018; The Islamic Republic of Pakistan celebrates its newly democratically elected leader — Imran Ahmed Khan Niazi, founder of the political party: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI). PTI won majority seats in the provincial elections of the northern province of KPK and his success in the province helped pave the road to his win in the national elections in 2018. One of Khan’s key points while running was dealing with the climate crisis, which was also mentioned in his first speech to the nation as the Prime Minister.

To celebrate his victory, the PM encouraged planting trees…

这次采访是由新加坡激进主义者凯特·吉欧(Kate Geo)进行的。凯特(Kate)在她的项目中一直非常活跃,并且热衷于应对气候变化。 Geo是Re-Earth Initiative的创始人,该倡议具有巨大的影响力(他们已经在instagram上成功吸引了1万名追随者!)该组织以数字方式倡导气候行动,由来自世界各地的活动家组成。凯特还创建了一个名为BYO Bottle Singapore的组织,该倡议“旨在减少新加坡一次性塑料的浪费”。就她的个人生活而言,凯特(Kate)确保在日常生活中做出改变,以有所作为。她经常努力吃纯素食品,并使用可重复使用的瓶子。

您的名字,年龄和国家是什么?

凯特(Kate),19岁,新加坡

气候危机如何影响您的国家?

幸运的是,新加坡没有发生地震或热带气旋等极端灾害。但是,气候危机已通过我们不断升高的气温而明显体现出来(这里一年四季都已经是夏天,但现在变得更加炎热),以及更频繁,更强烈的干旱和洪水。水和粮食安全是主要问题,特别是因为新加坡缺乏我们自己的自然资源。作为一个低洼的岛屿,我们还容易受到海平面上升的影响。所有这些都对公共卫生以及生活成本产生了深远的影响。

政府如何处理? /贵国如何改善自己的努力?

新加坡政府尚未宣布全国气候紧急状态,但我们的总理在2019年承认这是“人类面临的最严峻挑战之一”。政府在这里采取的许多气候行动都集中在适应措施上。例如,建立沿海防御,改善我们的排水系统以及投资当地的粮食生产。在缓解方面,新加坡已逐步从石油转向天然气,实施了碳税(尽管每吨CO2e仅为5新加坡元),并且正在提高我们的太阳能发电能力。人们也越来越关注鼓励公共交通,提高建筑物的能效并减少废物的产生。

也就是说,绿色团体一直批评政府继续支持和投资于污染性行业。新加坡是世界三大石油贸易和炼油中心之一。我们的石油和天然气行业仍然是政府补贴的主要接受者,2015年估计为78.5亿美元。

砍伐森林/砍伐土地也是一个持续存在的问题,城市发展往往优先于生物多样性保护。

哪些气候群体活跃?

新加坡有相当多的活跃环保团体!

这些小组特别关注气候:

SG Climate Rally

Green Lobang

Singapore Youth for Climate Action

350 Singapore

浪费:

Zero Waste SG

BYO Bottle SG

Project Become

总体可持续性:

Lepak In SG

Climate Conversations

青年气候运动的目标是什么?

我无法代表整个运动,因为不同的小组有不同的目标/观点。但总的来说,我相信已经达成共识,我们希望看到对减缓措施的重视,特别是向低碳未来的公平过渡。除了气候变化之外,许多人还希望看到文化的变化,而不再是一次性用品,而是转向循环经济。

青年气候运动的现状如何?

无疑,这将在我们的国家中建立越来越大的影响力。但是,我会说有时它可能仅限于回声室。仍然有必要与更多的新加坡人接触,他们对气候危机的关注与我们不同。许多青年绿色团体是最近才成立的(仅在过去三年左右的时间里),并且仍在寻找解决方法。总而言之,令人鼓舞的是,越来越多的青年人以自己的能力倡导气候行动。我真的只是一直受到同龄人的启发!我很高兴看到这一运动进一步发展。

青年气候运动的现状如何?

显然,凯特非常了解新加坡的环境状况。我相信她将来会继续进行令人难以置信的项目。她将在达特茅斯大学环境研究专业继续深造,我相信她会继续做令人难以置信的事情。要深入了解她的项目,您可以访问其组织的网站byobottlesg.com,或查看她的instagram(请参见下文)。

Dünya üzerinde pek çok ülkede olduğu gibi Türkiye de de insanlar sosyal adaletsizlik, ekonomik problemler, adaletsizlikler, COVID ve iklim kriziyle de mücadele ediyor.Ancak bana göre ülkemizdeTürk toplumunun tarihsel olarak güçlü bir demokrasi bilinci olmasına rağmen, güncel problemlere karşı organize olmanın etkili ve güçlü bir yolu henüz keşfedilmemiş durumda. Bunu Türk toplumunun devleti kutsal ve erişilemez bir yere konumlandırmasına bağlayabiliriz. Bu anlayış aynı zamanda insanlara elinde olana ve devletin ona sağladığı olanaklara “şükretmeyi” öğretiyor. …

Turkey is one of the many countries with complicated and, in some cases, problematic social and administrative constructions. Like many other countries on Earth, Turkey deals with social inequality, economic problems, injustice, COVID, and of course, the climate crisis. What I find very unique about Turkey is how social movements arise to combat these problems. Although there is a strong sense of democracy historically, Turkish society seems to be lacking an effective and strong way of organizing. Because there is also a strong culture of state glorification, people don’t demand their…
