21 Jul 2021

By 2050, global demand could even triple, which would mean releasing an additional 10-20 million hectares of land – a devastating scenario both environmentally and socially for local communities (WCR, CI). In other words, in thirty years’ time we may not have the luxury of drinking all the coffee we do today, because all coffee is threatened with extinction.

The experiences of some producers have highlighted the major problems linked to climate change, which call for a decisive change of pace, so as not to see their crops and, in the long term, the entire coffee sector compromised. These are emergencies that demand answers from the political world, especially from young people, who are aware that if things do not change, their future is compromised.
