The 2015 Paris Accords and SDGs launched, a 3-decade, low carbon transformation, recognising “Climate Change is existential”. This is the rationale for SUN – the Strong Universal Network. Under the initial guidance of our friend and mentor, the late Maurice Strong - sustainability and Climate activist half a century ago - we are creating a “Plan For Our Kids” a global Training and Lifetime Learning program to create a movement of 100,000 STRONG Climate Champions by 2030. They will advance Climate Friendly Travel ~ Low-carbon: SDG-linked: Paris 1.5 ~ to support the UN 2030 / 2050 Green & Clean roadmap for a better future. This will help Travel & Tourism companies and communities to make a Zero GHG transformation.

SUN - Strong Universal Network

SUNx Malta - Strong Universal Network - is a new system for Tourism destinations and stakeholders to build Climate Resilience in line with the targets of the Paris Agreement through “Climate Friendly Travel.”

There is no greater single threat to humanity than Climate Change - it is eXistential.

SUNx will focus on this reality and provide an eXchange of smart solutions, tools, and resources to help any community and its tourism stakeholders.

And with it the entire Travel Ecosystem of airports, ports, stations, along with meetings, sports events, theme parks, music festivals and all the attendant hospitality services for feeding and entertaining travellers. Some 10% of the global economy, driven directly and indirectly by this sector is grinding to a halt. Tens of millions of jobs and household livelihoods are threatened.
