On June 20th, a great number of UN health and environment experts, international politcal leaders and CEOs from different business sectors from around the world joint forces in Vienna during the R20 Austrian World Summit.
Organized by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s NGO R20 and with the patronage of the Federal President of Austria Alexander Van der Bellen, the conference aimed at presenting and discussing different solutions and initiative to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals and to slow down and stop climate change. Norway is definitely a pioneer in climate action trying to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030! But I was also very moved by the solar projects in Burkina Faso, bringing light and clean air as well as empowerment to women and children at the same time. It was an honour to host the summit. Now it is up to us to make sure we cool down the planet before it is too late.
We all have a story to tell.
