June 5th Only 1 Earth - A tribute to Maurice Strong


If the world succeeds in making a transition to truly sustainable development, all of us will owe no small debt of gratitude to Maurice Strong, whose dynamic presence on the international stage has played a key role in convincing governments and grassroot organizations alike to embrace the principle - if not yet the practice - of adopting a new long-term custodial approach to the global environment.”
Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan
