a lesson in troubled times

I spent an afternoon, hosted by the European Commission, with seminars on migration and climate change. Their way of reaching out and inviting dialogue is commendable and necessary when navigating political turmoil.

What struck me was how these seemingly different topics turn out to be interrelated. Climate change is a growing driver of migration. And neither issue could be addressed by fortifying borders. Nationalism won't solve anything, only strengthened cooperation will. A lesson in troubled times.
