“I would love to live in a place where my children, when I have them, can grow up in a world where the world leaders have listened to Greta’s [Thunberg] generation,” she expressed. “I want my kids to grow up in a place where [the] climate crisis is contained, if not averted.
“I want to live in a place where a woman’s ability to succeed should be a basic human right and not based on geography or chance.”
Chopra attended the event as a Global Citizen Ambassador. She shared more of her vision in a press release to ET Canada.
“We are in such a unique position as human beings — we alone have the power to change the world we live in,” Chopra said. “We sit today with the world’s greatest leaders in technology, innovation, philanthropy, and government, it is imperative that we have their help to fill the gap.
“We are running out of time,” she continued. “At the dawn of this new decade, we must work together to urge the world’s most fortunate to give while they live in order to see an end to extreme poverty by 2030.”
Chopra posted quotes and photos from her time at the World Economic Forum on Instagram.
