About this event

Come and join us for Strong Earth Youth Summit (SEYS) that attracts young climate activists from around the world, to promote a vision and action plan for Climate Friendly Travel (CFT). SEYS, named after Maurice Strong, the sustainability activist 50 years back who was the Secretary General of the first “Earth Summit” in 1972. SEYS will highlight the immense contribution that Strong made to the foundations of today’s Global Climate and Sustainability “Code Red“ Agenda.

Schedule for SEYS 2022:

  • A tribute from Achim Steiner, Under Secretary General UN and Head of UNDP, very much as he delivered at the opening of the 2015 Paris Climate Summit.
  • Keynote from Professor Felix Dodds founder of the UN Stakeholder Forum, on 50 years of Global Environmental Action – celebrating the 1972 first Earth Summit.
  • Mirian Vilela, Executive Director, Earth Charter International will talk about the Earth Charter that Strong introduced in 2000, with Mikhael Gorbachev former President of USSR. The Earth Charter was a landmark first covenant between the People and the Planet , with a very heavy focus on equality, equity and social justice and nature based approaches. Many of its ideas can be seen in the Terra Carta introduced by the Prince of Wales in 2021.
  • Two of the top tourism climate scientists, Professors Susanne Becken in New Zealand and Daniel Scott in Canada, will provide state of the art thinking on climate impacts and metrics, linking tourism in to UNFCCC and IPCC programs.
  • You will hear how SUNx Malta is helping to deliver Climate Resilience with its partner Risklayer, led by Bijan Karzai.
  • Hans Friederich, the Registrar of SUNx Malta’s CFT Registry, will explain how registration can really help companies and destinations to greatly enhance their Climate and Sustainability Plans.
