“I have been climbing mountains and crossing glaciers my whole life, and I could observe how the effects of the climate change have been devastating.
We all have a role in reversing this tendency and ensure that the next generations are able not only to play in the mountains but to live in a healthy planet. High mountains and glaciers are an essential part of the planet life, from the water cycle to the biodiversity, and my foundation is aiming to work for the protection of this regions and its role in the planet health.”
