The Future is Now: People, Planet, Prosperity

T20 Forum on Climate Change

10 May 2021

13:30 CEST

Climate change is increasingly perceived as the defining challenge of our time as it endangers both life and livelihood in our planet. The Covid-induced crisis is making this challenge all the more crucial as it urges us to strike the right balance between global recovery and environmental targets. From governments to private companies and international organisations, finding viable options and strategies to build a green future is key.

What is the potential impact of climate change on our economic and social systems? How can we reconcile climate protection and economic growth? How can we make our food systems more resilient to climate change? And what can we expect from multilateral efforts and in particular from the Italian G20 in 2021?
