“We have no right to abandon the populations that are affected by man-made environmental disasters. From reckless armament to industrial negligence and economic exploitation – our decisions and our lifestyle encourage ever more extreme risk-taking around the world. For the benefit of future generations, Green Cross is pursuing two objectives: reparation and prevention.”

«The bright and the dark sides of technology are very close to each other. People must take responsibility for the sustainable use of new technologies. In doing so, they often throw overboard values and principles, such as the principle of proportionality. With their short-term thinking, they put themselves and the environment at risk. Limits must be drawn. For many people, this insight comes too late. They suffer from the serious consequences of man-made disasters. A commitment to these people and a more sustainable development on our planet is the order of the day.»

«Man-made disasters have devastating consequences not only for the environment but also for the civilian population. Unfortunately, negative effects linger over the years and those affected face enormous obstacles. Therefore, it is important to promote their personal initiative and create sustainable structures.»
