El futuro que queremos

El mensaje central que se desprende del evento paralelo organizado por el Club de Madrid en Río+20 -Sustainable Development in an Unequal world- es que la justicia medioambiental requiere justicia social, y esta no puede lograrse sin igualdad de riqueza e ingresos no solo entre los diferentes países, sino también dentro de los países. El evento se centró en la relación y la interdependencia entre la economía, la justicia social y el medio ambiente. Se  tató la cuestión de la creciente (y alta) desigualdad mundial entre aquellos que contaminan más por un uso irresponsable de los recursos naturales y aquellos que sufren los efectos de dicha contamienación. Se señaló el hecho de que hay 1.000 millones de personas que tienen un estilo de vida que repercute negativamente en la dignidad de vida de las restantes 6.000 millones
