Bertrand Piccard
Founder, Solar Impulse

With his dual identities as psychiatrist and explorer, it is in Bertrand Piccard's DNA to push back the boundaries of the possible and advocate for a pioneering spirit, as he did with his two round the world flights, with Solar Impulse and before that non-stop in a balloon. He more recently launched the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions, and with it the goal of selecting #1000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way to bring them to decision makers by COP24 (2018) and encourage them to adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.
