Lifel discusses innovative socioeconomic models at the United Nations Environment Assembly
Dr. Nikhil Joshi presented highlights of Lifel’s initiatives in regenerative economics to ministers, diplomats and business leaders during a Symposium leading to the 3rd United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) in Nairobi, Kenya.
He also spoke at the Leadership Luncheon where he highlighted the urgent need for scalable solutions in systemic sustainability with UN President Miroslav Lajčák, UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Executive Director Erik Solheim, UN Assistant Secretary General and UNEP Deputy Executive Director Ibrahim Thaiw, UN Office at Nairobi Director-General Sahle-Work Zewde, Trinidad & Tobago President Anthony Carmona and Business Leaders from around the globe.
The Lifel involvement in UNEA was facilitated by the Global Business Alliance for the Environment (GBA4E), an action-to-information network, which serves as the conduit for business and industry at the UNEA. “We were thrilled to invite Dr. Joshi and other business leaders to UNEA. Our aim is to seek a greater participation of businesses in UNEA and to bring a higher visibility to the important contribution businesses are making towards environmental sustainability,” says Robynne Anderson, Co-coordinator of the GBA4E.
The United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system, and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.
