The increasingly extreme weather phenomena we are witnessing are among other things a consequence of atmospheric warming. In order to back up the climate change commitments made two years ago upon the concluding of the Paris Agreement, the world’s first global climate agreement, with concrete action, the One Planet summit was held in Paris. The key goals of the summit were a call to countries to increase funds for the climate battle and a call to investors to turn their backs on polluters and dirty technologies.

All present agreed that it is high time to take measures, that we are losing the battle against climate change and that more decisive measures are required. Climate change is happening here and now. Slovenia has been battered by huge storms in recent days. Prime Minister Miro Cerar, who travelled to the affected areas, promised the residents all the necessary assistance and support and noted the huge sacrifices they have made, which in his opinion shows that when nature shows its power, the people also show their strength.
