Liberals propose action to deliver climate justice

From 22 to 24 June liberals from across the globe gathered in Berlin for the 200th Liberal International Executive Committee Meeting.

This time, the meeting focused on coming up with liberal responses to the Paris Agreement and how to deliver climate justice.

Liberal International President Dr Juli Minoves welcomed "over 150 delegates, from 48 countries and 6 continents to Berlin to discuss the ethical issue of our time."

FDP leader Christian Lindner also welcomed the participants: "We are providing a political home to Europeans who want a free market, tolerance, and freedom. We liberals look at the world not with fear but with courage."

We wait for our chance to make real change in Germany and liberalism is providing its voice and it is growing; but we cannot allow popularism and xenophobia to spread and discourage liberalism in Europe," he added.

The outcome of the meeting was the adoption of the Berlin Declaration of Climate Justice, which you can read here.

The next big meeting of Liberal International will be their 62nd Congress in Dakar, Senegal.
