World personalities call for building a better world

Paris - Robert de Niro, Madonna, Pedro Almodóvar, Sting, Barbra Streisand, Jane Fonda, Resident and 193 other personalities of culture and science called this Wednesday to build a post-Covid-19 world away from consumerism and the destruction of nature.

In a message published in Le Monde, stars of film, dance and theatre, Nobel Prize winners, prestigious scientists and some representatives of other sectors, such as the former French football player Claude Makélélé, warned that the health crisis invites humanity to respond to essential questions.

The situation is simple: adjustments are not enough in the face of a systemic problem, marked by the massive extinction of life on Earth, which leaves no doubt about a direct existential threat, they said, joining an initiative by French actress Juliette Binoche and her fellow countryman, physicist and philosopher Aurélien Barrau.

According to the 200 personalities, leaders and citizens must renounce the current logic and work towards new goals, values and ways of seeing the economy.

Consumerism has led us to deny life itself, that of human beings, plants and animals, they insisted in the text, also signed by Nobel Prize winners Frank Wilczek, Stanley Whittingham, Serge Haroche and Richard Roberts, and artists Ricky Martin, Edgar Ramirez, Julianne Moore, Jeremy Irons, Penelope Cruz and Willem Dafoe.

In this sense, they considered that the planet is at a breaking point, before which it is urgent to take the path of fighting against pollution, global warming and the destruction of natural spaces, because it is unthinkable to 'return to normal'.
