The last edition of Conama concluded that the recovery we want is the one that brings about the transformation we need. An unprecedented transformation because we have to face once and for all the ecological debt that we have been accumulating and that, despite our best efforts, continues to grow.
That is why the slogan of Conama 2022 emphasizes transformation. It is not enough to show good practices. It is essential to focus on the impact of our strategies and projects. If we do not achieve the necessary scale and pace, we will not achieve our objectives.
Those objectives that we have set ourselves and that make up the different environmental agendas: decarbonize the economy, halt the loss of biodiversity, reduce resource consumption and maximize efficiency, close cycles by imitating nature, allow biodiversity to enter our cities, minimize the impact of our activities.
From Conama we want to claim a single agenda, dressed in SDGs, Urban Agenda, climate ambition or just transition, to accelerate the real transformation. We face a major challenge: to innovate and implement at the same time, seeking the social justice that will make change viable. And, to do so, we all have to step forward, to be protagonists of this transformation.
In the 30 years of the National Environmental Congress, we have not had an opportunity like this one to go out “to find solutions”. Conama 2022 will continue to contribute to generating a climate of dialogue and collaboration that nurtures the necessary alliances to expand our capacity for action.
