Editor's Note

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As we emerge from the global pandemic, Ideagen continues to

maximize our efforts and commitments to convene the world's greatest

minds from the world's leading companies, NGO's, and the public

sector to address the world's most vexing issues. In 2020, Ideagen TV

content reached over 90 Million People and in 2021 we are on target

to reach well over 100 Million People across the planet with inspiring

interviews and custom programming to create awareness and

partnerships to achieve the Global Goals.

2021 is already shaping up to be epic, we are excited to convene and

prepare for the release of the Acceleration Summit Series in July and 17

Days of Sustainability in October, which are 17 Days with hundreds of

speakers all to further global sustainability and ultimatly change the

world!

Sincerely,

GEORGE SIFAKIS
