Stage 3: with team effort we arrive to Trujillo!

In this stage we have united two of the cities with more personality of the province of Caceres. We left the capital and passed through small villages until we reached Trujillo, a monumental city with a very special charm.

The stage of just over 90 km has not been complicated, but there were a few ups and downs that challenged the resistance of the team. Precisely, the topic of discussion of the day was the importance of building climate resiliency and ensuring that this process is inclusive, so that no one is left behind.

We need to be aware that climate change is a serious ethical conflict that impacts mainly on the most disadvantaged sectors of the population and which is jeopardising the future of the coming generations. Policies need to address these vulnerabilities first so that these sectors can adapt and cope with the changing climate patterns and also so that mitigation efforts do not aggravate their situation.

The planet has already warmed by 1°C above pre-industrial levels and under current rates we are expected to breach 1.5°C between 2030-2052, according to the IPCC special report on global warming of 1.5°C. Whether and how we are able to limit temperature increase will greatly influence the resiliency of natural and human systems, which are already experiencing the impacts of the multiple observed changes in the climate system. If we fail to take action now, the irreversibility of the situation will mean that any future measures will be ineffective and much more expensive.
