The dictatorship of large-scale infrastructure and logistics
Share the campaign

Reducing time and space to increase profits and satisfy consumption that doesn’t hint at decreasing it, what is the real price?


Extreme Infrastructure

New high-speed freight railways, port terminals, data centers and power plants, as well as logistics centers spanning hundreds of acres. All founding elements of global mega-corridors, such as the “new silk road” that will criss-cross half the planet.

Global production is being reorganized, with the aim of continually increasing profits in the face of a slowdown in the growth of world trade and promoting just-in-time production on a planetary scale. A process that is only partly visible, strongly energy-intensive, rooted in the economy of fossil fuels and that unscrupulously bends territories and people to its own needs.


Globalization 2.0 is born

Among the protagonists, the shipping industry that will concentrate in its hands even more power and wealth, but at what cost? Exploitation of people, erosion of labor rights, weakening of environmental regulation and increased extraction of natural resources.
Can we believe that a “globalization 2.0” aimed at accelerating production, transport and consumption of goods at an unprecedented rate is capable at the same time of reducing the systemic impact on the environment and climate, without widening the gap between those who benefit and those who bear the costs of a model that is set to become more unequal and unsustainable?

It is a game that is already going in a specific direction and in which we can already talk about winners and losers.
