Leaders Campaign for the Virtual Event “Nature for Life: Putting Nature at the Heart of Sustainable Development and Green Recovery”


Transcript of the Video message from Angel Gurría

OECD Secretary-General

24 September 2020

(As prepared for delivery)



Nature is life! The life of countless species and intricate ecosystems that make up the biodiversity on which our own lives depend.

To all the key actors and cross-sector partnerships innovating for sustainable development, we stand by you.

To the countries who are disproportionately impacted by climate change, and are still committing to take more action, we stand by you.

To the businesses and entities who aren’t yet paying attention, we urge you to care, we urge you to change.

We stand for nature. Nature for life.
