Moderator Walter Link, CEO of NOW Partners worked closely with public sector institutions, including the UN and the EU to advance regeneration-oriented policy frameworks. He co-owned a now 140-year old Euro-Asian-US industrial group before co-founding the first sustainable business alliances across Europe and the Americas.

Martin Riebel, CEO, Schwan Stabilo Outdoor Group represents as a successful business leader, the Outdoor industry’s growing recognition that it needs to get ever more involved in advancing public policy environments in Europe and globally that are aligned with its companies commitment to regenerating and sustaining natural environments as well as other key values. Martin will help to formulate the industry’s questions and observations.

Jerome Pero, General Secretary of FESI, the Federation of European Sporting Goods Industry already lobbies for the sports & outdoor industry at the European Union level. Besides sharing FESI’s experience, he will explore with the other panellists what can be learned from other lobbying fields and countries to advance ‘lobbying for good’ that unlike most lobbying advances the regeneration of people, societies and nature.

Laura Santucci, Political Operations’ Chief of Staff at the Obama White House and before that as the representative of New York’s most influential labour union was responsible for advancing many regeneration-oriented policy initiatives in the USA and later also around the world as Chief of Staff at the UN’s World Food Program that works in close collaboration with governments around the world.

Martin Frick, a senior leader at the UN Food System institutions and at COP, the UN’s Climate Program will share his perspective on how to successfully advance local and global policy initiatives that typically meet with much resistance from diverse public and private sector interest groups that want to prioritise their financial interests above the regeneration of people, societies and nature.
