Twelve Green proposals for a socially just and environmentally sustainable solution to the crisis
Introduction: summit-as-usual is a failure

Excerpt: Our world is experiencing combined financial, economic, social, ecological and democratic crises, with runaway climate change being a life threat for humanity. The present crisis is embedded into this broader context. From the Arab Spring to the Israeli tent-city movement from the Occupy movement to environmental NGOs to human rights defenders, across the world people are fighting back. Greens are partners in solidarity with these initiatives.

We are facing the consequences of an unsustainable development model, focusing on economic growth alone, ignoring ecological and social constraints and fuelled by excessive public and private debt, privatisation and deregulation. These crises are eroding social cohesion and leading to political disintegration of the continent, driving us to irrelevance in the 21st century.
