The consequences of climate change are becoming ever more palpable. From roaring fires to raging floods, the need to safeguard life and biodiversity on Earth has never been more urgent. We must develop sustainable solutions that encourage inter-sectoral alliances and action. Indeed, as with the fight against COVID-19, climate change is a problem that no single actor can solve alone.
The pandemic has also highlighted the vital link between environmental and human health, and the urgent need to green our economies in order to meet climate goals. Yet how should profits be balanced against the public good in times of climate emergency? Are the private sector and innovative approaches keys to meeting climate goals?
Join us for this interactive session to discuss guiding principles and new models for public-private collaboration in tackling the climate emergency. Be inspired by young professionals and expert voices!
