Why do you work on the Climate Walk?

“Walking together towards a just and solidary future – not only for humans, but for all living beings – is for me the antidote to an ever accelerating and harsher world. Walking together means picking up people where they are, instead of believing that one needs to guide and teach them. Walking reminds us of our dependence on an intact environment, it also reminds us that the struggle against the climate crisis and its driving forces is not a decision, but a necessity.”
