Climate action and nuclear weapons abolition are Mr. Ikeda’s main themes, with a focus on the individual lives and suffering often hidden behind macroeconomic indices. He describes climate change as “a fundamental challenge, on which the fate of humankind hinges,” and stresses that it threatens to render meaningless global efforts toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Praising the energy of youth climate activists, he states, “When young people’s will to transform reality merges with an indomitable optimism, the possibilities are limitless.”
