In this second edition of 2022, Sustainability in Debate's Editorial expresses a wake-up call, standing on circumstantial political aspects interrelated with the environmental crisis and reaffirming the role of open access scientific journals in the expansion of knowledge exchange. Science also needs to be democratized and sustainable, giving the entire scientific community access to the global production of knowledge that can contribute to making this world a better place.
