“Climate change is already having far-reaching consequences. Impacts are accelerating and will worsen as the climate continues to change and effects will be significant. So many people like to ask what is more important – mitigation or adaptation. The answer is we need both. As we already know, climate change will continue even if we eliminate fossil fuels from our economy, which means that continuous adaptation to change is inevitable. Climate change adaptation refers simply to actions aimed at reducing vulnerability. Adaptation to climate change is therefore no longer a question of choice, but of the ‘how’. Ecosystem-based adaptation is the use of biodiversity and ecosystem services as part of an overall adaptation strategy to help people to adapt. Ecosystems do play an important role in increasing our resilience by providing diverse services to human beings thus contributing to sustainability of our societies. Restoration and protection of natural ecosystems ensures economic benefits. As individuals, we can greatly contribute by making lifestyle changes and reducing our own ecological footprint. You might think your contribution is small, but together our collective action is powerful.” (Duška Dimović)

Anybody who has any sort of a platform should use it to spread awareness because the problem isn't that people aren't willing to help but that they don't know they can. I am at the beginning of my career therefore the number of people who can be informed by me might seem insignificant but the more of us know, the bigger the contribution that we can bring is. I am in ClimateKeys because I don't hear enough discussions on this topic even though it is one of the most important of our time. In my opinion all of us should focus on doing what is in our power to help, no matter how small it may be and I'm very happy that ClimateKeys has given me an opportunity to do the best I can right now.” (Masha Dragicevic)
