HE Mr Arnold Schwarzenegger, Founding Chair, R20 - Regions of Climate Change & Former Governor of California, urges the stakeholders from the Delhi Sustainable Development Summit to start acting now for a greener future and initiate sustainable development projects at the grassroots level.

In his keynote address, Mr Arnold Schwarzenegger reiterated two key messages, which are important for managing the global commons. First, he reiterated that it was possible to have sustainable development action in an economically viable environment. Second, he urged all stakeholders not to wait for international agreements, but initiate local action to the extent possible. He gave the example of California, where he was till recently the Governor, and cited that most people were skeptical about very "radical" steps. But, California now has a vibrant green economy, and has achieved energy efficiency and large-scale renewable energy deployment. Mr Schwarzenegger also suggested that it was important not only to have top-down approaches for sustainable development, but also bottom-up initiatives.
