How to create change for a sustainable future
8.45 to 9.45 AM

Johannah Bernstein is a human ecologist and international environmental lawyer who has been advising the UN, national governments (Sweden, Denmark, Finland and others), international NGOs and the private sector on a wide range of global sustainability issues for the past 30 years. Her love for the mountains brought her to Switzerland in 2009; since then Johannah has devoted this chapter of her life to raising public awareness about the impact of climate change on mountains. Johannah is currently collaborating on a film project with Johan Rockström and Xavier and Beanie de le Rue about the impacts of climate change on the 3 Poles (Arctic, Antarctica and Tibet). Johannah lives in Montagnier, Switzerland, with her two Golden Retrievers and her wonderful team of interns. When she is not advocating for sustainability, Johannah is either skiing in the backcountry or swimming in alpine glacial lakes.

Johannah will share her knowledge about the current state of our planet and what actions that are currently being undertaken by governments, the private sector as well as within cities and communities around the world. We will also explore what steps each one of us can take to reduce our footprints.

This session will be conducted in English.
