Opening plenary (Day 2): A new vision for Earth

Conference Hall

As the climate crisis accelerates, scientists, civil society, grassroots organizations and some policymakers are calling for urgent action to phase out fossil fuels, improve energy efficiency and promote sustainable land use alongside renewables. But millions of people are already dealing with the effects of climate disasters, biodiversity loss, severe food and water insecurity, and social inequalities.

It’s time for a new vision for Earth – one that will trigger a system-wide transformation to benefit humanity across the board and build both sovereignty and stewardship in landscapes. Join world leaders, activists and experts in this opening plenary to highlight the latest scientific insights, novel policy instruments and bold new ideas to build a new vision for earth – one that keeps us within planetary boundaries and ensures the well-being of people and our planet.
