Grand Environmental Challenges: Exploring the Interplay Between Global Dynamics and Local Realities

As environmental challenges escalate, and the responses required become ever more urgent, tensions are emerging between the globally adopted goals and local actions needed to achieve them.

How capable are global decision-making institutions for addressing these challenges? How can we best upscale local knowledge and capabilities into global research and decision making? How do we equitably and effectively disaggregate global targets into local actions?

Join us as we explore these questions and more with our panel of experts, and continue the discussions afterwards at our drinks reception. All welcome!
