Emerging from Emergency
This high-level Roundtable is being convened in light of the growing climate emergency narrative and the critical need for it be accompanied by concrete action. In practice, this means nothing less than suspending business-as-usual and doing whatever it takes to achieve net-zero global emissions by 2050 at the very latest. The challenge now is to shift from merely sounding the alarm to giving policy-makers and the business community the policy tools and levers of change which genuinely respond to the emergency. This Roundtable aims to do just that, by acting as a convergence point between the two dimensions of the climate emergency space, by linking advocacy with action, convening activists, problem-holders and solution-providers.
As such, the roundtable’s overarching objective is to offer concrete solutions to the climate emergency; pragmatic takeaways which participants can then develop and implement in their respective fields of work, effecting genuine change at varying levels of governance and society. Real calls to action with timetables and targets. This is the key added value of the Roundtable, convening the disparate strands of the climate emergency and broader sustainability space in order to co-design solutions for genuine impact.
