7 April: Q&A on biodiversity and spread of diseaseRead more
The question is not if we move, but the question is if we are able to move quick enough, if we are able to move together and create the right alliances of the willing — alliances of those people who take a holistic approach in order to integrate sustainability into financing systems and economics.
The current system does not take in and does not fit the work we’re doing today. We need the system to change. Easy to say, harder to do.... the system is not built for this purpose.
Alignment between investors is key. It’s very difficult if you have people looking for money and nothing else and other stakeholders looking for Sustainable Development Goal improvement... We need to find the common ground.
We need to be a downpour. We need to be a human flood over this next decade coming together in a peaceful way to wash away much of the old world and make room for what must now come next.
The scariest thing about agriculture is the sheer smallness of the number of people who know how to do it and the fact that the skills are not being transferred. Right now, we have an exodus and a big brain drain of farmers leaving the land.
We need to change some of the enablers out there, and one of them is banking... We really need to change the regulatory environment of banking on a global scale.
Every song has a dance, imagine if a song on tree planting goes viral. I have a tree to plant, dig, dig and plant. A tree cannot make a forest, but many trees. One voice, one song to restore our land.
It’s easy to wait for visionary leader, but individually and in communities we can already do a lot… it’s very important to start those small movements while we wait for the large movement.

We spark and sustain conversations on sustainability. We are the world’s largest, science-led multi-sectoral platform, engaging year-round through global, regional and local events, national policy dialogues and online Digital Summits.
Evidence sits at the core of our platform. We produce, gather and disseminate diverse types of knowledge —scientific, traditional, practical — with the aim to facilitate co-learning and create impact across our five main research themes.
The Forum is not a static entity, but a dynamic movement that grows stronger with your involvement, ideas and innovation. Be a part of it!
