We have to take radical steps to receive a significant transformation of our future. We all have to be role models and act as a collective society. We must become aware of our responsibility, that we must pave the way to a livable world. So let’s come together to develop strategies under this topic within the different dimensions, disciplines and formats. Let us make a change in our behavior and discuss how to act now and at the same time act wow.”
