OPEN Webinar: Change the economy to save the climate
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm Europe/Madrid Timezone
Tuesday 8 November 2016
In February 2015, Christiana Figueres, former Executive Secretary of UNFCCC, talking about how to face climate change, stated:
“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history”.
In December 2016 nations and international leaders celebrated the Paris Agreement. What has happened to Figueres´ statement? What actions can we take to put this critical statement back at the heart of the UNFCCC process and of the international efforts in general? What are the connections between the current economic system and the climate challenges? How can the different actors (civil society, businesses, institutions, academics) collaborate to catalyse those changes?
The New Economics Foundation and The Global Hub for the Common Good are delighted to invite you to the OPEN Webinar: Change the economy to save the climate.
This action, moderated by Alessio Pisano, is organised under the framework of the Global Forum NESI “New Economy and Social Innovation” that will take place 19 – 22 April 2017 in Malaga (Spain) as a meeting place for change-makers working to co-create a more sustainable, fair, collaborative and people-oriented new economy.
