Boaz Paldi

Chief Creative Officer
United Nations Development Programme
New York

Humanity is facing multiple crises. Severe weather, floods, draught and wildfires are just warning sign of what may still come. At the same time we see inequality growing, and more people being thrown into poverty across the globe. 

But there is still much hope and a short window to act and address the climate emergency and a multitude of issues everywhere. 

The United Nations, governments, civil society and NGO are not enough to help save the planet. We need the partnership and support of the creative community to take action and help. We need to reach across nations and across peoples and work together for a common cause. All of us can have enormous impact if we join forces and act as one.
