In this episode, “How Can We All Make it into the Future?”, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Patricia Espinosa talks to Timothée Verrecchia about the milestones in her inspirational career. Espinosa and Verrecchia discuss the relationship between the citizens and governmental organizations and address the ways how we can meet the challenges of climate change.
“Paradoxically, this past year, while it has been so difficult, so challenging, it has also brought windows of opportunity. For the first time, we have seen that the world has been able to mobilize in a way that nobody thought was possible.”
– Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change
“It seems to me that one of the great functions and opportunities for bodies like the UNFCCC is to precisely be the control tower for research and the legitimate body for scalable solutions. I see it as a great risk in the fight for climate change, that everybody kind of does their own thing, even if there’s a lot of goodwill and there’s a lot of good solutions. It seems like scalability really is at the core of the success.”
