a billion seconds

"a billion seconds" is a campaign to focus our collective view further into the future, centralizing ESG/SDG in the conversation. A billion seconds is around 30 years.

We are asking for support or participation, for a shift in the outlook on time to reframe the impossible, and create a long-term outlook to solve the possible together.
