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.
