In this 4th episode of KimiB.Good, I would like to talk about the big picture. In terms of sustainability, climate change seems to me like the big picture because nearly every sustainable development goal is linked to climate change. These goals were set by the United Nations to transform our world towards a more sustainable development.
This time I joined and interviewed innovate project leaders at the Climate Lounge Pad Boot Camp and asked them about their project scope, their motivation and their learnings. I also moderated a round table at the 3rd Basel Sustainability Forum and asked experts and students to answer some of my questions concerning climate change.
The Climate Launchpad is the world’s largest green business ideas competition. The mission is to unlock the world’s cleantech potential that addresses climate change. The competition creates a stage for those ideas and it is split into the submission, the Boot Camp and the finals where the participants pitch their projects to a interdisziplinary jury.
My interview partners at the Climate Launchpad Boot Camp are:
3rd Basel Sustainability Forum
The Basel Sustainability Forum is an annual conference, covering different sustainability topics year by year. In 2018 the conference in Basel presents the current status of research and policy on climate change in Switzerland and beyond, and it addressed some controversial topics, such as the pricing and consumption of fossil fuels affecting pathways towards decarbonization, the right of developing economies to follow their own development path, the competition between economic interests and their social or environmental consequences, and a certain competition between a global climate change agenda and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Hope you’ll enjoy the interviews and thanks in advance for your comments.
