Rave Reviews About Adam Met
We were fortunate enough to have Adam co-host a session for us during the flagship Global Goals event at EXPO 2020 in Dubai. The high level event, delivered in partnership with the United Nations, bought together influencers like Bill Gates and the UN’s DSG, Amina J Mohammed, alongside the voices of young activists and changemakers. Adam’s breadth of experience and knowledge meant he was able to seamlessly knit the two audiences together. He was excellent in both giving some opening remarks and facilitating the session and can speak authentically on multiple issues within Sustainable Development.
