AMSTERDAM, Feb (IPS) As the new Executive Director of GreenpeaceÂ International I am often asked what changes I plan to make for the
organisation. The response I give is one which I believe applies to CivilÂ Society as a whole: I would like us to become even more inclusive in our
membership, even more united with other groups in our work, even moreÂ determined in talking truth to power, and even more active all around the
globe.Â Many of our world’s most important international infrastructures are inÂ shambles, which has both contributed to and exacerbated the current series
of manmade crises: food crisis, oil crisis, poverty crisis, and, of course, theÂ climate crisis.
