A year ago today we lost our dear friend and colleague Max Thabiso Edkins when Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 went down shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa.
Max was the quintessential climate change warrior. He was passionately committed to the cause, he knew the science, and he was a very talented and skilled communicator. He reached out to and inspired a huge range of stakeholders with his green bow tie and his special articulate messaging and his innovative events. And he mentored and developed a large number of young people in the field. No one who met Max ever easily forgot him – such was the impression he made.
He was also a wonderful and loyal friend and a loving father and husband.
He is missed every day, but even though physically no longer with us, he continues to inspire us.
And we will continue the fight in honor of his memory.
