The @SportPosSummit today gathered an audience of changemakers to debate the future of global #sports. I was pleased to make the opening remarks alongside @yannguichard & Bruno Oberle to announce our new partnership with @IUCN. https://donabertarelli.com/sails-of-change-iucn/
Proudly launching "Sports for Nature", a partnership between @IUCN & @sailsofchange to help sportspeople play a full part in protecting biodiversity. To create an impact we have to take action for nature together. It's time to #Inspire, #Unite & #Change.
As the #climate & #biodiversity crisis worsens threatening the basic systems we rely on, setting aside 30% of the global #ocean by 2030 through large, fully protected & transboundary connected #MPAs is no longer a choice!

In June, @WTO members adopted the new agreement on #fisheriessubsidies. But for it to work, 109 member states must ratify the treaty. Learn how a strong treaty can make a world of difference: #StopFundingOverfishing @IISD_news
Thank you @AndyRainforest for sharing the wonderful news that the world's largest #eagle, the Harpy eagle, has returned to #CostaRica. I hope to see these beautiful creatures in the wild one day. #rewilding @osaconservation
