The Heat: World Environment Day

The Heat

“Only One Earth” is 2022’s World Environment Day theme with emphasis on “living sustainably in harmony with nature.” 

This year is also the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment that led to the creation of the first World Environment Day held in 1973. Since then, the United Nations reported that four key climate indicators all set new records in 2021 with climate change, increased temperatures, rising sea levels and loss of biodiversity wreaking havoc on our planet.
Joining the discussion:
  • Changhua Wu is the CEO of the Beijing Future Innovation Center.
  • Sweta Chakraborty is the President of U.S. Operations for We Don’t Have Time, a review platform for climate solutions.
  • Saleem Ali is the Blue and Gold Distinguished Professor of Energy and the Environment at the University of Delaware and Author of the upcoming book, “Earthly Order: How Natural Laws Define Human Life.”
  • Leila Salazar-López is the Executive Director of Amazon Watch.
