What gives you hope?
There are many people, coming from all walks of life, concerned with problems that extend far beyond their national, cultural and religious interests. The initiatives from the youth, civil societies and business with regard to climate change is a good example.
How does change happen?
It happens when there is a confluence of vision and action across many levels of decision making, extending from the supra-national to the national to the regional to the local.
What is the best advice you ever got?
The best advice I ever got was from my father, who told me: "this is a great day. Rejoice and be happy in it.“
