To call attention to our failing food systems.

Sunday, June 19 was the Climate March in Rotterdam. The climate crisis affects us all, but people in poor countries are already paying the price. There are food shortages due to droughts, floods and crop failures. 3 billion people are affected by this every day. The food system is responsible for a whopping 37% of total global CO2 emissions!

As an organization for international cooperation, Cordaid called on everyone in the Netherlands to come to the Climate March, and to bring a pan and ladle to make as loud a noise as possible in order to wake up politicians. At people can read more about Cordaid's motives and sign the petition. There are also window posters to download and gifs that people can use on Instagram. The petition will be presented to the government in November. Those who missed the Climate March can still sign the petition


"Systems do not stop at national borders. Climate change, a pandemic, poverty and inequality affect us all. The world is more interconnected than ever. Existing systems are failing. "Together we can fix systems," said Matthias van Halem of Cordaid.
