IMPACTFUL

COLLABORATIVE

ECCO wants to strengthen and integrate the work of universities, civil society, businesses, institutions, media and politics. ECCO is an accelerator and catalyst for change and to get a safer Planet.

LEADERSHIP

ECCO is a positive agent of change and innovation who works to create new thought leadership, people, narratives useful to face the most complex and decisive challenge: that of climate change.

DIPLOMACY
