Friends in the news: Future Hope
Steven Wilson was at the Wilson Center representing ProAdapt (which funds one of our major projects). The seminar highlighted that sustainable business might create $12 trillion in revenue by 2030. How large is the market for private sector products and services for climate resilience? This is the quite open question we are working on.
Aslo, kudos for Johan Rockstrom as the new Hillary Laureate! And pleased to see Peggy Liu, Jeremy Legget and Tim Jackson were previously honored, each with some shared history with GCAP.
And just in, Amy Luers is the new ED of Future Earth after spells at Skoll, Google and the White House. She produced one of the early quantitative models of vulnerability and has been inspirational in getting climate resilience into applications.
