In October, Marbella’s Palacio de Congresos brought together nearly 1,000 people for the Towards Nature event, to meet activist Johan Ernst Nilson. As the organisers noted, “At a time where the environmental crisis is a reality, it is increasingly important to raise awareness and start taking action in order to protect the environment and conserve biodiversity. Now more than ever, a change of mindset must be put into effect to improve the situation for future generations. Indeed, the best legacy that can be left to the younger generation is a habitable planet.”
Johan Ernst Nilson from Sweden is a major environmental activist and climate change advocate who promotes global environmental education through inspirational talks. The event was organised by the environmental charity Goodwill Meridian Fund together with the agencies Events Couture Marbella and Marie-Noëlle Communication, with support from Marbella Town Hall. All funds raised from the event are being donated to the Foundation MarbellAyuda, for its program to renovate the paediatric area in Costa del Sol Hospital, and to the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation for its Climate Change program.
