“Humanity is facing a serious crisis due to human-induced climate change. It is imperative that local, regional, national, and international policy address this issue urgently. The European Union, as principled actor on the global stage, has a fundamental duty to do its part.”

In this video Joshua Castellino, Executive Director of Minority Rights Group International, gives his analysis of the EU’s role in fighting human-made global climate change, and averting a climate catastrophe.
