Christiana Figueres on the opportunity of climate change

Christiana Figueres was appointed Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2010. Christiana joined us at the Findhorn Foundation and Community in June 2014 at a gathering of experts to explore the advances that can be made in climate finance ahead of the UN Secretary General’s Summit on the topic in September 2014, and the UNFCCC Paris climate negotiations in 2015.

In an inspiring, informative and challenging talk to the community, Christiana clearly details where the science and global politics currently stands in relation to climate change and why she is optimistic about the future. Although the challenges are vast, Christiana describes how she sees the moral issue of climate change as a powerful opportunity for humankind to transform global economic, social and political systems in addition to catalysing the transformation of human consciousness.
