Daniel takes us through the week's events in another Monday morning round-up. This week we look at the World Meteorological Organization's climate report & link to climate talks in Bonn, Germany (COP23). We also hear from Swiss Adventurer Betrand Piccard, who attended the e-car rally at Place des Nations on Friday. He spoke about sustainable solutions for the planet.

50 events for the promotion of peace in Geneva have been organised this week as part of Geneva Peace Week. They're a collaboration of UNOG, the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform and the Swiss Confederation. This year's theme is Prevention.

This Thursday Microsoft President Brad Smith will be here to discuss the IT industry's role in fighting cybercrime as part of the Digital Geneva Convention. (4-6pm). Registration essential.
