Back from Dubai... it's cold... πŸ₯Ά

I'm back from Dubai and Expo 2020. We have been spreading fact-based optimism like crazy down there. It's very good to be back with my family, but boy it's cold here. At least compared to Dubai. Most days we had over 40C/100F. A little bit too warm, but I prefer that to the cold.

I have many thoughts and news I will share with you over the coming weeks. The first is the false choices about climate change and the environment at the Sustainability Pavilion. Do you want to save 1 big animal or 100 small animals? Que? Or do you want to have a mobile phone or save a rainforest? Say what?

I wrote a blog post about that:

πŸ˜’ False choices at Expo 2020 in Dubai

We also met Jakob TrollbΓ€ck, who created the iconic language for the UN:s Sustainability Development Goals. He explain how he did it. Genius out work. Please check out my article about him.

Please, if you haven't answered our short survey on this newsletter, please do! It will take you no more than one minute.
