"Whilst there seems to be growing global awareness and an understanding that climate change is real and requires swift combat – the task is huge and requires a somewhat radical shift in behaviour and thinking. It’s an opportunity and the responsibility for young leaders of our current generation to disrupt the status-quo and determine a healthy future for our planet. Through innovative models combining historical wisdom and technological leapfrogging, we must create scenarios whereby people can co-exist in alignment on earth following principals of respect, conservation and integrity."
