Oceans: It is TIME for friends to come together
Urgent action is required to save life in the ocean. We face a generational challenge on our watch and we must rise to the task. The energy, innovation and resources from all sectors of public life and civil society and from all parts of our business, must be drawn upon, from all regions of the world. This is why we are forming the Friends of Ocean Action.
- Isabella Lövin, Deputy Prime Minister of Sweden
Climate change: It is TIME to take practical steps
Climate change represents one of the most significant challenges facing civilisation. - Narendra Modi, Indian Prime Minister
Inequality: It is TIME to turn the tide
