THE CONDUIT TO HOST THE NEW YORK TIMES' LONDON CLIMATE FORWARD
Recognised as London’s hub of social change, The Conduit is delighted to welcome The New York Times to host Climate Forward London at its Langley Street home from Thursday 30th June – Saturday 2nd July during London Climate Action Week 2022.
The New York Times’ Climate Forward event will question whether the world has kept its climate promises since COP26. Delegates will be invited for three days of science, culture, policy, storytelling and debate, where The New York Times will put critical questions to climate leaders, take a progress health check, delve deep into the facts informing decision-makers, hear from different sectors and industries and bring the climate challenge to life through storytelling, art and music.
With London Climate Action Week marking roughly six months since COP26, how much global progress has been made? Are governments making good on their promises? In a city dominated by politics, the ongoing effects of the pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis, how can we regroup, reconnect and bring climate change back to the top of the agenda? And what is the global outlook halfway to COP27?
Speakers at Climate Forward London will include Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London; Nigel Topping, UN Climate Change High-Level Champion for COP26; Elizabeth Wathuti, activist and founder of the Green Generation Initiative and Wangari Maathai Foundation; Farhana Yamin, lawyer and climate activist; Alexandra Palt, Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer of L’Oréal and Francois Gemenne, Director of the Hugo Observatory.
Over three days, The Conduit will play host to The Solution Stage, centering on how we can ignite change together. Curated in collaboration with system change pioneer Systemiq, The Solution Stage will take guests on a journey across three days to uncover what is needed to reach positive tipping points across six focus areas. Each session will showcase speakers, organisations and pioneering research that provide innovative and scalable solutions that can accelerate our transition to a net-zero and socially just economy.
The Solution Stage will highlight voices from across the globe and provide unique access to experts such as Tim Christophersen, former Head of Nature at the UN Environment Programme and Vice President of Climate Action at Salesforce, Rhian-Mari Thomas OBE, Chief Executive Officer at Green Finance Institute and James Mwangi, Executive Director at the Dalberg Group. The thematic focus areas are: Ocean CO2 Removal; Curbing Plastic Emissions; Harnessing the Power of Agroforestry; Africa: Climate Vanguard, not Climate Victim; Protein Sources of The Future and Sustainable Finance.
Paul van Zyl, Founder and Creative Officer, The Conduit, commented: “We are thrilled to be welcoming The New York Times’ Climate Forward London to our Langley Street home, and to partner with Systemiq to offer a stage to climate leaders and innovators from across the globe. It is an exciting opportunity for The Conduit to reaffirm its values and commitment to creating a just, prosperous, and sustainable future.”
