A climate leader for me is someone who is in lead adapting new ways before others, not following others but making the path for others to follow. A person who is building teams that are driving the transition to a sustainable society, and is not being afraid of failure but sees mistakes as great places for growth and development.
There are a lot of good solutions out on the market in different countries. We need strong climate leaders who can drive and implement these solutions at a higher speed.
We need to support our leaders more and put them into a context where they can grow in their roles.
Climate leaders in our region are a bit invisible and often a bit quiet, often recognized as someone loving and hugging trees in the forest and someone who is against development and growth.
North Sweden Energy Agency (Energikontor Norr) is building collaborations and networks to support climate leaders. We also provide an increased knowledge of different projects.
