TRANSITION FORUM 2019: SHIFTING TO SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLES
The second annual TRANSITION Forum, which took place in Monte Carlo on June 26-27, 2019, ended on the same note that it started – with a strong call to action.
“We need to take strong measures,”
said Christian Estrosi, Mayor of Nice, President of the Metropolis of Nice Cote d’Azur and Deputy Chairman of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region (France).
“Many people share the same goals, but words do not always translate into actions,” said Lionel Le Maux, Chairman, Aqua Asset Management & Co-Founder, TRANSITION Forum, during the opening session. “What sets this event apart? It is about action, not just talk,” Le Maux added. In the closing session, Rinat Guy, Chief Innovation Officer, Municipality of Tel Aviv, Israel, cited Peter Drucker in saying : “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” About 300 participants from over 18 countries took part in the Forum, which focused on four main themes: Food, Mobility, Production & Consumption, and Housing. Participants included entrepreneurs, corporate executives, fund managers, scientists and representatives of civil society. “The California model shows that the world can improve the viability of the economy while reducing carbon emissions,” according to Timothy Papandreou, Founder, Emerging Transport Advisors (US).
