Making a Green Economy Happen
Format: Interactive Panel and Q&A

Identifying principles to guide progress towards a green economy and learning from practice to catalyse action
Making a Green Economy Happen builds on the earlier sessions within this topic, recognising the need to imagine the green economy, measure progress, finance the green economy and create value. Adding to the insights from the earlier discussions, this session will emphasise the need for empowerment, space and agency for individuals, businesses and organisations to act on climate change. This will enable responses to be flexible and adaptive, making them more locally relevant and acceptable, whilst being fair for current and futures generations.
