Ep #08: Why Unity & Collaboration Will Save the World

With COP 27 just around the corner, what really is sustainable development and what does the world need most right now to achieve it?

Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, the former Prime Minister of Norway, and chair of the World Commission on Environment and Development, known as the Brundtland Commission, which produced the The Brundtland Report, explores this very topic on Summa & Friends. 

From how she achieved full consensus with the Brundtland Commission, to why we need to focus on the social aspects of sustainability, and what’s holding us back from reaching sustainable development, Gro is frank and honest about how we as individuals, as companies, as nations, need to unite and collaborate to save the world.
