Rethinking Value – Resources For Planetary Wellbeing
A conference outside the comfort zone.
A global dialogue to make resource use a powerful driver for planetary wellbeing.
We live in times of economic, social and environmental disruption. The economic model we have relied upon has been driving the triple planetary crisis of climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss. Time for systemic change has never been more urgent.
We require the power of collective imagination and open collaboration to move towards a future where global resource use becomes a driver for planetary wellbeing.
WRF’23 welcomes international policy-makers, businesses, scientists and civil society leaders to find innovative solutions and co-create a new story of sustainable, systemic change.
The inaugural Africa Climate Summit, championed by HE President Ruto, aims to address the increasing exposure to climate change and its associated costs, both globally and particularly in Africa. With the expectation of escalating climate crises in terms of frequency and intensity, urgent action is required to mitigate these challenges.
The Summit will serve as a platform to inform, frame, and influence commitments, pledges, and outcomes, ultimately leading to the development of the Nairobi Declaration.
ACW 2023 will discuss climate solutions ahead of COP28
This year’s Africa Climate Week will take place from 4-8 September 2023 in Nairobi, hosted by the government of Kenya. ACW 2023 will be organized in parallel with the Africa Climate Summit on 4-6 September, also hosted by Kenya.
The first global stocktake will conclude at COP28 in UAE in December of this year. The stocktake offers a unique opportunity to call for decisive change. It is an opportunity to urgently respond to the need to accelerate progress by collectively embarking on a swift and profound transformation of our economic and social systems.
ACW 2023 and all the Regional Climate Weeks provide a platform for policymakers, practitioners, businesses and civil society to exchange on climate solutions, barriers to overcome and opportunities realized in different regions.
The Weeks consider four major systems-based tracks with a view to providing region-focused contributions to inform the global stocktake:
- Energy systems and industry
- Cities, urban and rural settlements, infrastructure and transport
- Land, ocean, food and water
- Societies, health, livelihoods, and economies
