In 2009, I invited Jonnie Coeur, main character from Romain Gary’s Novel “The Man with a Dove, to assist to the UN Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen. From the beautiful story featuring Johnnie, a young idealist lost at the United Nations headquarters, to the Climate Change Summit, I connect for hope after World War II tragedy and today’s search for idealism in the context of Climate Change.
