NATO Climate Killer Part 2: Climate Crossfire Webinar

Should the world’s richest countries spend on wars or on preserving the planet? New research reveals that NATO’s aim to spend 2% of GDP on the military will accelerate climate breakdown, potentially endangering our planet.

The climate is caught in the crossfire of war. To safeguard our world, peaceful conflict resolutions are essential. A secure nation cannot exist on an unsafe planet. At COP28 this December, political leaders face a critical choice: Do they favor a heavily armed yet deteriorating world, or a healthy planet where peaceful coexistence thrives?

Join us for a compelling discussion on the insights from the new report, ‘Climate Crossfire – How NATO’s 2% spending targets worsen the climate crisis.’ This discussion sheds light on the perilous implications of increased military spending during COP28.
