By Kumi Naidoo (*)

AMSTERDAM, Feb (IPS) As the new Executive Director of Greenpeace 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 Civil 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 more determined in talking truth to power, and even more active all around the
globe. Many of our world’s most important international infrastructures are in shambles, which has both contributed to and exacerbated the current series
of manmade crises: food crisis, oil crisis, poverty crisis, and, of course, the climate crisis.
