ISO hosts world leaders in standardization to advance the 2030 Global Agenda

Show that you are open and throw away old beliefs and paradigms in order to find solutions that nobody would have been able to find, says Bertrand Piccard, the initiator of Solar Impulse, the first airplane to fly around the world without fuel.

Bertrand Piccard was addressing more than 500 delegates from over 150 countries representing standardization and other international organizations at the 41stISO General Assembly, being held in Geneva, Switzerland, this week.

“You have to be interested in what other people are doing, even if it’s not what you think, to create other ways of thinking,” he said, referring to how organizations can innovate and make positive change.

“Advancing the global agenda” is this year’s theme, which looks at how the power of International Standards can be harnessed to address many of the world’s greatest challenges like climate change, pollution and poverty.
