“I came away from GLOBE Forum very inspired that despite the tragic effects of climate change we see ravaging our surrounding ecosystem, there is progress being made and this transition presents an opportunity to make a better world.
Much of the discussion focussed not only on reducing emissions and meeting climate targets, but incorporating much needed changes into the new infrastructure and systems including other environmental benefits, inclusivity, diversify, climate equity and justice. This is real progress. It’s easy to lose hope when you live in a part of the world that has literally burned and then washed away in less than six months, yet being part of the change feels more than rewarding- it feels like it’s meant to be. I know that with decision makers like this behind the wheel, we’re going to build a future our children will be proud of, and I am honoured to be counted among them.
Thank you GLOBE Series for this necessary and inspiring event – I look forward to continuing the discussion!”
