Viscount Etienne Davignon, President of Friends of Europe,
Mr. Giles Merritt, Secretary General of Friends of Europe,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I thank you for honouring me for my work to raise awareness about climate change.
All of us at the United Nations recognize this is an overarching challenge with implications for our entire agenda.
That is why we are trying to do so much, in so many places, in so many ways, not only to sound the alarm but to point the way towards solutions.
