Students lead environment demonstrations in Brussels

“Change the system, not the climate”, say 35,000 in Brussels. Christian experts welcome initiatives to change consumption habits.

For the third consecutive week, students marched demanding bold policies to stop climate change and back an ecological transition.



The police said the 35,000 people taking the streets on January 24 was one of the biggest public gatherings in Begium in the last years.



16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has inspired the protests, according to Euronews. She took a stand against global warming in August 2018 and has since then become a symbol of youth engagement on environmental issues. Thunberg was invited to attend Davos’ World Economic Forum last week. “Many people are doing as much as they can, but they are too few and too far from power to make a difference today”, she said.





The movement of young activists demand “real and bold climate action to safeguard the future living conditions of humankind”.



As they marched Brussels’ streets, they protested in front of the European Parliament. Some signs said “Change the system, not the climate”, “Clean the planet for the future”, and “If you breathe air, you should care”.



The movement not only asks governments to back policies for plastic-free products or a reduction of emissions. Politicians need to realise that “the world is falling apart”.



Similar protests have been organised lately in other countries such as Germany and Switzerland.



 



ECO-YOUTUBERS

Meanwhile, in France, a group of 62 influential youtubers have created the platform “On Est Pret” (We Are Ready) to produce videos to raise awareness about daily behaviours that help to care for the planet.



Their contents underline the need to stop using plastics, search for alternatives to the car and change the alimentation habits. They offer ‘challenges’ to other young users. Their contents are aimed for people aged 12-25.



 



A CHRISTIAN LIFESTYLE: CARING FOR CREATION



Environmentalist Ruth Valerio spoke to Evangelical Focus about how Christians should change their lifestyle to engage in creation care. She gave specific advice on transport and food consumption in the following interview:





The lack of clean water, the amount of waste produced every year and the way clothes should be bought are other issues addressed by Christian experts on this website.
