plakat do wydarzenia

From a global perspective, the EU is under the pressure of the crises related to population changes, the ageing of the European population, still dynamic population growth in African countries and the tendency of its Eastern Neighbour – Russia, to keep its influence in Eastern and Central Europe despite its demographic collapse. Climate change can trigger additional pressure on population movement from South to North and the source of new political conflicts on scarce resources like water or farmlands in the future. How the EU should adapt to this unstable and less secure environment with huge migration flows.

From a local perspective, citizens of Europe need to adapt to climate change by changing their habits and consumption behaviour. How fast is this process? What are the factors that influence the awareness of the climate change challenge?
