Keeping in mind that continued economic growth and development over the last century has had a devastating impact on the planet, and that the depletion of natural resources, extinction of species, displacement of communities and global warming are just a few of the crises that the world currently faces, these leaders explore the possibility of a sustainable future where global economic development benefits everybody, natural resources are protected and biodiversity is restored.

The esteemed panel of speakers comprises: James Cameron – Academy Award-winning film director whose recent movie Avatar is hailed as the most epic of environmental advocacy movie ever made.

In September 09, Time magazine declared him a ‘Hero of the Environment’.

Changhua Wu – Greater China Director of the Climate Group leads the organization’s Global Demonstration initiative with an aim to forge public-private partnerships to quickly scale up low carbon solutions in China.
