Climate action was prominent on the agenda of the 2015 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Presentations by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, World Bank president Jim Yong Kim, UK climate advisor and economist Lord Stern, and former US Vice-President Al Gore highlighted the significance of action on carbon emissions and climate change, demonstrating once again that you can’t separate the economy from the environment.
We hope that as you read these quotes from the session on Tackling Climate, Development and Growth you’ll be inspired to write a letter for our Breaking Up with Fossil Fuels Love Letter contest. You can also read this introduction to the session by Dominic Waughray, 2015: A make or break year for climate action, to see why our collective action is so important in 2015.
