We Don’t Have Time: Safeguarding the Future of the Planet… And Us All

Last week, while the world was showing up and shouting out, founder Jakob Trollbäck urged designers and communicators around the world to use their talents to safeguard the future of the planet… and us all.

For those who missed it, last Friday was World Environment Day 2020, celebrated every year on June 5 to engage governments, businesses, celebrities, and citizens to focus their efforts on a pressing environmental issue.

In honor of the event, Jakob joined a panel of the world’s top climate, community, health, and resiliency experts to discuss biodiversity, climate justice, and how we can move forward in these uncertain times. We strongly encourage you to take some time and listen in here.

As we continue to think about social justice and our role in creating a better world, we must also think about climate change, ecosystems, and the importance of creating an interdisciplinary dialogue. All these issues are inextricably linked, a key tenet of the Global Goals our company helped create and now lives by every day.

As last week’s event, hosted by We Don’t Have Time, and the UN environment programme states: It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To raise our voices. It’s time to build back better for People and Planet.
