Mikhail Gorbachev

As the founder of GCI, Mikhail Gorbachev was an active and important guiding force for the organisation. Through his writings and appearances, Mr. Gorbachev helped bring greater focus to the three connected challenges of ensuring human security, removing poverty and averting environmental catastrophes. In addition to the Green Cross, Mr. Gorbachev also used other channels such as the World Political Forum and the Nobel Laureates summits to sensitise world public opinion on these issues.
