In the run-up to the G20 summit, former recipient of the Alternative Nobel Prize Vandana Shiva spoke at the Global Solidarity Summit in Hamburg. In an interview with DW, she reminded G20 leaders that "everyone has a right to a share of the planet."
This year's COP23 has built on innovative solutions that were introduced in COP21. This included changing our understanding of carbon's function, says Indian environmentalist Dr. Vandana Shiva.
Four people and organizations have been chosen for what is widely known as the "Alternative Nobel Prize." The four have addressed free speech, war, women's rights and migrants.
As the G20 kicks off, creative protest action is already underway - Hamburg's current "wave of protest" has environmental topics at its core. This carries forward a long tradition in the anti-globalization movement.
G20 countries - bar the US - have reiterated their commitment to the Paris Agreement on climate change. But the resolution also had other nuances. Overall, it's a positive result, climate expert Niklas Höhne tells DW.
