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 - sustainable development pioneer, we are creating an eXchange for learning, innovation and resilience through Impact-Travel. With a growing cadre of graduate climate champions, supported by Maurice Strong Legacy Scholarships.

2018 Climate smART Award

The Climate smART Award is the first cultural initiative of SUN – Strong Universal Network, which exists to actively encourage the massive Travel & Tourism sector to play a leading role in response to eXistential Climate Change. The award honours museums and cultural centres that make public education a priority and we are proud to work with Leading Culture Destinations Awards (LCD) - sharing their vision of Museums as focal points for education of travellers.
