On 24th September in New York, SUNx and Malta Ministry of Tourism, will be hosting the first Annual STRONG Event. It will is a dinner to honor our friend the late Maurice Strong, Sustainable Development pioneer and the inspiration behind SUNx, to underscore the vision of “Climate Friendly Travel” as a positive change agent in the New Climate Economy.
The dinner coincides with the release, in collaboration with WTTC, of the first Annual Climate Friendly Travel Report - a vehicle for stretching the ambitions of the Travel & Tourism sector toward a Zero Carbon 2050 future.
SUNx - Strong Universal Network is a Legacy to Maurice Strong, pioneer of Sustainable Development who envisioned a catalytic role for Travel & Tourism. The Network advocates Climate Friendly Travel ~ measured: green: 2050 proof ~ to support the Paris Accords & SDG-13. In 2019, it formed a partnership with the Government of Malta for a “Plan For Our Kids” to train 100,000 STRONG Climate Champions in all UN states by 2030 to support the sector’s transformation to Climate Friendly Travel.
This event is part of the Sustainable Travel and Leisure program of Climate Week NYC.
