Expanded and Extended Level of Concern

What we can expect

Addressing the Climate Crisis from an Expanded and Extended Level of Concern


The escalating climate change crisis has become the world's most pressing issue, threatening our lives, our environment our health, and our livelihood. It has stirred a disheartening debate concerning human-induced global warming and the measures needed to mitigate its devastating consequences. The solution requires a change of perspective towards a deep-seated and holistic approach, with an expanded and extended level of concern.

Understanding the Need for Expansion and Extension

At the heart of our struggle to address climate change lies our limited scope of understanding of the enormity of the issue and our limited span of level of concern. Our attentions are confined to our immediate communities, countries, and this fleeting moment in time. However, the repercussion of climate change spills over borders and generations. As such, a myopic vision can no longer suffice.

Need for Expanding Concern

Expanding our level of concern calls for inclusivity in our struggle against climate change. A global issue warrants a global response. As much as climate change affects all of us, it does so disproportionately. Developing nations, poor communities, young generations, are far more exposed to the repercussions of climate change. As such, any effective response would necessitate caring for those who are the most vulnerable.

Need for Extending Concern

Extending our concern demands that we pause and consider the world we're leaving for future generations. We are custodians of Earth for a mere blip in the history of time. This calls for immediate action are not just about the coming decade alone, but about the next hundred, thousand or even million years. Even billion years!

Our response to the climate challenge should match its complexity and gravity. We can no longer afford to sideline the urgency of the problem, nor can we ignore those for whom the consequences of inaction are most dire. By expanding and extending our level of concern, we ensure that the efforts we put in today resound through the corridors of time, nurturing a planet that future generations will call home.
