Amsterdam Declaration of the Global Assembly of the Club of Rome

Donnerstag, November 5th, 2009

The Club of Rome calls for urgent action to avert the growing risk of catastrophic climate change. The most
recent scientific data presented to the Assembly by the world’s top climate scientists demonstrate the
accelerating impacts of climate change on the natural systems of the planet. Beyond this existential threat to
the future of humanity, the Club stresses the need to find a new path for world development to resolve the
connected challenges in the fields of environment, global development and the restructuring of economies
onto a sustainable path. We insist that responsibility for care in the use of energy and resources,
responsibility for the environment and social inclusion are not simply costs to the economy, but investments
in the future of humanity. Governments have directed trillions of dollars to stabilize the financial system: we
call for the required levels of finance to salvage the future of the planet.
