Ignacio Ramonet, who won Premio FAO España for his job as journalist and director of Le Monde diplomatique in Spanish, will be the responsible of analyse which path is the good one to stop the climate change and to propose viable and sustainable measures. Ramonet will participate in a new edition of Encuentros Cañada Blanch that will take place today, at Paranimf of Centre Cultural La Nau of the Universitat de València, at 7:30 pm.
Climate Change affects all parts of the world: temperatures rise, polar ice caps melt, sea levels rise and ecosystems change with the consequent extinction of some animal species. For this reason, Ramonet has decided to focus its intervention on this climate emergency under the title “Alarma ecológica, emergencia climática”. The journalist will also comment on the role played by activist Greta Thunberg, as well as the need for climate awareness and the latest meteorological phenomena that have taken place in the Valencian Community.
Ramonet, who was named the favourite son of humanity by the Congreso Hispanoamericano de Prensa, the Congreso Mundial de Universidades and the International Congress University of Media, has become one of the key figures in journalism. He is co-founder of the non-governmental organization Media Watch Global and Emeritus Professor of Communication Theory at Denis-Diderot University.
This activity, organised by the Fundación Cañada Blanch together with the Centre Cultural La Nau of the Universitat de València, the Fundación Mondiplo and Le Monde diplomatique in Spanish, thus responds to the social concern that flooded the streets of the world last week to demand effective action against climate change by governments. Ramonet will also explain the errors that have accelerated this phenomenon and the possible solutions to guarantee life on the planet in a responsible way.
Encuentros Cañada Blanch
The Fundación Cañada Blanch organizes the Encuentros Cañada Blanch cycle with a double perspective: to find a current topic and professionals who can tackle it effectively. All this with the aim of bringing the work of these people closer to society and generate debates that favour the Exchange of knowledge. Previously, personalities as the actor Juan Diego Botto, the filmmaker Isabel Coixet and the violonist Isabel Villanueva have participated.
