Three years after the launch of the One Planet Summit, a movement is underway

“Let's not wait until it's too late to act!” This was the motto of the first One Planet Summit held on December 12, 2017 at the initiative of the President of the French Republic, the Secretary General of the United Nations, and the President of the World Bank Group.
