Kate Powers Foundation backs Climate Protectors retreat

A dozen young leaders of the future from the International School of Monaco and the International School of Nice have met with renowned climate change experts during a weekend-long retreat in Monaco.

Held from 16th to 18th June, the three-day event brought together internationally renowned experts in climate solutions to help participants create a toolkit of the most effective measures for meaningful and impactful leadership around climate action.

This unique weekend was created and led by ‘Climate Protectors’ in collaboration with Mind and Planet and in partnership with the International School of Monaco, Conscientiae, and the Kate Powers Foundation

Climate Protectors is an initiative of ‘I Am Your Protector’ (IAYP), a community of people who speak out and stand up for one another across dimensions of religion, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation. IAYP aims to share knowledge, stories, and tools that inspire people to become each other’s protectors.

Speakers in Monaco included Jim Dratwa, head of the department of Ethics at the European Commission and senior advisor to the President of the European Commission, World Bank Climate Change governance specialist Claire Davanne, and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Srdja Popovic, dubbed as among the “50 people who will change the world” for his unique work in toppling brutal dictatorship with nonviolent action and a leading force behind today’s most prominent climate action entities.

After the launch in Monaco, the ‘Climate Protectors’ program will go to Geneva, Paris, London, New York and Los Angeles.
