Though the discussions in some ecologically minded groups that I attend say that “we have to do it ourselves, because governments and technologies, international conferences and business won’t help in time on climate change…” I still look for eco-hope wherever it might be found. In December of 2022, two international conferences meet again. COP27 on climate change meets at Sharm el-Shiekh, Egypt; the second, COP15 on biological diversity, meets in Montreal. There is hope for both. Montreal has delivered before on major ecological cooperation, and there is hope there, especially during COP15, which will be the world’s largest gathering on protecting biological diversity in a generation.
