Bertrand Piccard: realistically transforming society

MARCH 14, 2024

A KEYNOTE BY BERTRAND PICCARD

Bertrand Piccard is an explorer, psychiatrist and pioneer of clean technologies. After flying around the world in a solar plane, he created the SOLAR IMPULSE Foundation, which has identified over 1000+ efficient solutions to protect the environment while being economically and financially profitable. He is now trying to persuade governments and companies to speed up the transition to a low-carbon economy.

“There’s a huge misunderstanding surrounding degrowth. It’s time to say that ecology isn’t about sacrifice, but that on the contrary there are huge benefits to be gained from modernizing the world and making our infrastructures more efficient. We need to move from an economy of quantity, which pollutes, wastes and threatens the climate, to a more efficient economy of quality, which will improve people’s quality of life.”
