Colombian Ambassador Pinzón and Environment Minister Correa Among Leaders Finding Innovative Solutions to a Range of Socio-ecological Crises
Washington, DC — Colombian and U.S. policy leaders and sustainability experts met in Washington, DC as part of a lecture series to find innovative solutions to a range of socio-ecological crises. Topics to be addressed include climate change, biodiversity and ecosystem services, renewable energy and efficient technologies, incentives and climate finance, and cities and urban-rural transitions, among others.
The “Sustainable Solutions in the 21st Century” lecture is part of a series of events celebrating the 200th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Colombia and the United States this year.
“For 200 years, Colombia and the United States have shared a special diplomatic relationship that has provided a strong framework for our two countries to take on the toughest issues of the day,” said Colombian Ambassador to the United States Juan Carlos Pinzón. “Today, climate and socio-ecological crises have become two of the most important challenges in our region and our world, so it makes sense we would bring this lecture series together to find innovative solutions.”
