Hope in a time of crisis

The Egypt Hall

We live in a time of multiple interconnected crises, from climate change to conflict, rising inequality, hunger and habitat loss – most of them caused by human activity. The science is alarmingly clear, and time is running out. But a wave of collective action, behavioral changes, nature and land-based solutions, political will and incentives offer hope for a just transition that can put people and nature on a path to recovery. In this plenary, leading policymakers, environmental lawyers, scientists and journalists will share their journeys in navigating the climate crisis. We hope their stories can inspire you with initiatives and solutions that are providing hope in a time of crisis, whether it’s delivering mitigation and climate finance, or achieving inclusive value chains, or holding politicians accountable and ensuring climate justice.
