刻不容緩

"我們正站在兩條路的分叉點上,而這兩條路並不相等,我們一直在走的路看起來很容易,那是一條平滑的高速公路,可以走的很快,終點卻是個大災難。另一條路比較沒有人走,卻是到達終點的最後一個機會,可以確保地球的安全。"

──《寂靜的春天p.318》
         (Silent Spring)

 

 

一張2015年發表、集合24種社會經濟與地球系統變化趨勢的研究圖表「大加速」(Great Acceleration),顯示了1950年後以指數向上成長的曲線,具體描繪了今日所處在的大加速時代。這些指標告訴我們,人類所帶來的影響已徹底衝擊了自然,甚至把地球資源消耗到前所未有的程度。我們在知道真相以後,要如何才能安處在這樣的時代?

聯合國大會訂下了《2030年可持續發展議程》(2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development)及其17項可持續發展目標(Sustainable Development Goals),呼籲全球共同實現一個「更美好、更健康的世界藍圖」。不論是事實的揭露,還是目標的設定,這一切在在告訴我們:改變與行動刻不容緩。如果不能起身而行,再多的目標也是枉然,唯有同心協力,我們才得以在動盪的時代湍流中到達終點。

我們爬梳歷史尋找線索、於是我們跨越領域、跳脫框架,試圖創造契機。

是時候,行動了。

It's About Time

“We stand now where two roads diverge, they are not equally fair. The road we have long been traveling is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed, but at its end lies disaster. The other fork of the road — the one less traveled by — offers our last, our only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of the earth.””

— Rachel Carson, Silent Spring.

 

Today, in the era of great acceleration, human beings have completely impacted nature and even consumed the earth's resources to an unprecedented level. Should we be amazed that how people can still be living so comfortably by already knowing the truth?

The United Nations General Assembly has set the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its seventeen Sustainable Development Goals, calling "a better and healthier world blueprint" for the global. Whether is uncovering facts or the setting of goals, it is telling us that change and action couldn't be delayed. Action speaks louder than words. There is no way to produce any useful result, if we do not start to take an action. Only by working together, we can achieve the target in these stirring times.

We comb through history to find clues, cross the field, jump out the frame and together, we create a turning point.

It’s time to take action.
