这个月的特别演讲来宾是:

In 2007, Mihela Hladin founded Greennovate, a social business with a mission of developing green concepts that contributes to the quality of life in China. Together with partners, Greennovate successfully launched initiatives and projects addressing environmental education, plastic bags use, green office spaces and events related to environment and public engagement.

In a country full of talent and great potential, Mihela is passionate about redefining the ways of living and working in China and is driven by how people here embrace new ideas and concepts. China is proactively promoting environmental consciousness, which means Greennovate has more ambitious projects ahead. This country might be Greennovate’s biggest challenge but it is for sure not the last one.

2007年,米海岚成立了格诺威特公司,这是一家社会企业,其宗旨在于开发一些有助于提高中国环境生活质量的环境概念。与合作伙伴们一起,格诺威特已经成功启动了各种激发大众保护环境的倡议性活动以及环境保护、使用环保袋、建立绿色办公室以及与让公众参与的项目和活动。

在这个充满创新人才和极大潜力的国家里,米海岚对于寻找到新的生活和工作方式充满激情,因为这里面对崭新的想法和概念时都能开放胸怀。中国正在积极主动地提高自己的环境意识,这也意味着格诺威特将有更多更好的项目可在这里实施。中国也许是格诺威特公司从事环境事业最大的挑战,但也一定不会是最后的一个。
