The winner of the auction will take ownership of the digital twin of Hanne Strong’s original Earth Swatch, a timepiece that served to raise funds to take 150 Non-governmental organizations to the 1992 Earth Summit, starting the engagement of Civil Society in Sustainability Agenda. To launch the NFT sale, WISeKey Founder Carlos Moreira, and SUNx President Geoffrey Lipman, will host a virtual seminar with: Hanne Strong, President of the Manitou Foundation USA, Felix Dodds, Co-Author with Maurice Strong of “Only One Earth USA,” Mirian Vilela, Executive Secretary of the Earth Charter Institute established by Maurice Strong and Mikhail Gorbachev in 2000, and JinFeng Zhou, Secretary General of CBCGDF China. During the virtual seminar, speakers will discuss the charities that will benefit from the NFT auction, as well as the vision of Mr. Strong who first called Climate Change existential back in 1972 and spent his life building a global response system, which is today embodied by the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement. The NFT will be created during the Webinar: The “Strong Earth NFT” – It’s in Our Hands. Registration is open at: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_P8NZwDfATkSHyGw9RIEiCw
The watch was given to Mr. Strong’s widow, Hanne Strong, by the wife of Swatch founder Nicolas Hayek. Ms. Strong, in turn, is donating the watch for the “cyber auction.” This Earth Swatch will be given an eternal digital life with certified ownership and authenticity. This digital twin will be the “authentic” double of the physical watch in the digital space. The first-off-the-line “Earth Swatch” watch, designed by climate activist and sustainable development pioneer Maurice Strong for the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, with the theme “In Our Hands,” is going up for auction this Earth Day, April 22 at 15:00 CET. The auction will run until 18:00 CET on June 5, 2021, which is the World Environment Day.
