The Planet Workshops - Global Conference 2013 – 3-5/06
Paris: Issues related to sustainable development should be in our indisputable common interest, but there is currently very little collective public action on this subject. Is the problem to be found in leadership, in the competing interests and the difficulties in organising such change? Should we continue along the same path, or is it time to promote a new dynamic? The core of the discussion will consist of the urgency of current economic and political challenges that prevent decision-makers from being able to step back and adopt a more long-term vision of societal change. Jakob Von Uexkull will take part in the plenary session of the VIIIth Edition of the Planet Workshops Global Conference at the UNESCO headquarters, Paris.
