Workshop coordinated by Betsan Martin on the ethics of responsibility and the commitment of socio-professional actors

Betsan Martin, septembre 2016

Discussions and concrete commitments are all very well, but do they provide an effective response to the challenges ahead?

Looking at the solutions agenda, or at the list of voluntary State commitments, one may well doubt it. We need to really focus on explaining, once and for all, the responsibility of each one of us towards the common good, and especially concerning the climate. Not doing this means navigating a path between schizophrenia and hypocrisy.
