Many young activists at the Forum, including Greta Thunberg, are worried. At least, German chancellor Angela Merkel talked about the importance of the Paris climate goals.
The 17-year-old climate activist said the trademark was meant "to protect the movement" from being used for commercial purposes. Thunberg has also set up a foundation to be transparent about the movement's financing.
Despite climate topping the agenda at this year's World Economic Forum, prominent climate change skeptic Donald Trump is one of the first speakers. He and activist Greta Thunberg laid out competing visions.
It's the first time the two are attending the same event since the teenager famously stared down Trump at the UN last year. The annual jamboree is taking place against the backdrop of Australia's worst ever bushfires.
In an interview with DW, John Kerry has criticized Donald Trump for his inaction on climate change. He also accused the US president of "breaking apart NATO" and "insulting Angela Merkel" and other European leaders.
