As a powerful former Head of State, Felipe Calderón is uniquely qualified to discuss today’s complex global issues. Calderón served as the 56th President of Mexico from 2006-2012 at a critical time during the country’s drug war. He implemented public policies during his tenure that projected Mexico as a powerful player in the global economy. He was named “Statesman of the Year” by the World Economic Forum and “Champion of the Earth” by the United Nations. He chaired the UN Conference on Climate Change COP 16 and was ranked among the 100 most influential people by Time magazine.
Since leaving his post as President, he has focused his attention on the economic benefits of acting on climate change and has positioned himself as a leading voice on this global issue. His wife, Margarita Zavala, recently announced she intends to run for President of Mexico in the 2018 election.
