How does society need to change?

Transition to circular economy

All economic activity should be based on circular economy. The circular economy is an economic model in which more goods are not constantly produced.

We need strict targets for reducing emissions

Finland has committed itself to the Paris Agreement aimed at limiting the warming of the climate to a maximum of 1.5 degrees. The aim is an ambitious one and it requires a rapid curbing of emission growth.

Focus on basic security, education, and participation

Sustainable well-being cannot be implemented without fair distribution of resources. Decisions on emission reductions or protecting the biodiversity cannot succeed if people do not find them acceptable. According to the Finnish Climate Panel more attention needs to be focused on the possibilities for participation in climate policy.
