Agência FAPESP – The planetary system that allowed civilization to develop in recent centuries is threatened, and the result could be a global humanitarian emergency due to the intensification of social, economic and environmental crises. The multiple and urgent actions necessary to reverse this scenario will only be feasible through a new agreement between science and society that, leads to a greater connection between leadership in all sectors.
This is the main conclusion of the State of the Planet Declaration, released on March 29 after intense debate among scientists specializing in socio-environmental areas during the Planet Under Pressure meeting, which was held in London from March 25-29.
