Successful stories from around the world

Why sharing stories?

Sharing solutions and initiatives that successfully contributed to a change, not only inspires and instills positive energies but also can provide relevant inputs as solutions can often be adapted and applied to different cultural and geographical contexts.
 
The last IPCC report is clear, we need to act now. We cannot waste time reinventing the wheel, working on solutions that brilliant professionals/organizations have already successfully tested somewhere else, or embarking in actions without benefiting of others' experience.  A more collaborative and inclusive approach is crucial to build a sustainable future.

Adding a successful story here inspires others and allows them learn from your experiences, reach you and foster new collaborations. Share with us a successful solution or initiative that can be meaningful to others.
