Description

Humanity is facing a barrage of interconnected crises: climate change, conflict, hunger, high inflation, and the enduring impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. From heatwaves to hurricanes, fires to floods, the effects of the climate crisis are already being felt across the globe. Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine is causing energy prices to spiral and exposing our addiction to fossil fuels. So, where do we go from here? What should we have done yesterday, and what do we need to do now? This plenary will highlight how interconnected crises underscore the need for urgent, collective and integrated efforts. Join climate activists, local champions and leaders in policy, science, and business to identify pathways and opportunities to accelerate climate action, deliver on climate justice, and ramp up climate finance.
