Concrete solutions for a clean future
«We are proud that our alumni worldwide are engaging in crucial movements such as futureisclean. Through one of our alumni we heard about futureisclean and immediately spread the word. The importance of projects like these lies in the fact that optimal sustainable systems, which our world requires, and that have self-renewal capacity are too rare. Leaders need to take action now and futureisclean is one of the ways to take this specific discourse to the next level!» - Anita Negri, President, oikos.
oikos is an international organization for sustainable economics and management. Founded in 1987 in Switzerland, we today empower future leaders to drive change towards sustainability worldwide.Our programs embed environmental and social perspectives in faculties for economics and management. They comprise conferences, seminars, speeches, simulation games and other initiatives to transform teaching and research. They promote the integration of sustainability in curricula. And they provide platforms for learning, creating and sharing solutions. The heart of our organization are our student members that turn ideas into action in currently 45 oikos chapters around the world. oikos highly supports futureisclean because we believe in actions. Clean technology solutions are the only way forward and need to become more mainstream. #FUTUREISCLEAN is doing rightly this!
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.
Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.
We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.
Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.
The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!
