forum anders reisen e.V.
Following the motto “Observing, Analysing, Acting”, Germanwatch has been actively promoting global equity and the preservation of livelihoods since 1991. In doing so, Germanwatch focusses on the politics and economics of the North and their worldwide consequences. The situation of marginalised people in the South is the starting point of the organisation’s work. Together with members and supporters as well as with other actors in civil society, Germanwatch intends to represent a strong lobby for sustainable development. Germanwatch attempts to approach its goals by advocating for the prevention of dangerous climate change, for food security, and compliance of companies with human rights. For years, Germanwatch has been working on aviation issues and has insistently drawn policy makers’ attention to the strong warming effects of aviation emissions. As long as mandatory policies or laws, such as an ambitious cap on aviation emissions, are not implemented, Germanwatch considers atmosfair to be the most reasonable approach to a sustainable solution.
