The Green Economy Coalition's 2016 Global Meeting will take place on 26 - 27th of July in the City of London.
Focused on ‘The state of the global transition’, this meeting will be the largest gathering of civil society and researchers working on a green economy from around the world.
With over 60 green economy national plans now in place and business action scaling up, now is a critical moment for our global network to come together. GEC members have unrivaled expertise on the transformation to green economies - on how to make it fair and inclusive, on how to build economies that protect nature and on how to mobilise for change. In this year’s sessions we will be consolidating that knowledge, co-creating our narrative and planning our next strategic steps together.
Please see the final detailed Day 1 and Day 2 Agendas here.
Day 1 (26th July) will focus on the following outcomes:
1. Sharpening the political narratives for green economy:
The politics of transition is as important as the economics. We will be drawing on expertise from within and beyond the network in order to strengthen the political case for change in different contexts and countries.
2. Accelerating the global transition: Planning for the next three years, we will:
- Take stock of the status of the global green economy transition
- Profile new green economy research, activities and policies
- Improve and scale up our collective interventions as a network
The transition is underway because of your work and commitment, so in this year’s meeting we want to profile your research, experiences and networks. We invite you to come, speak, shape and act together so we can propel green economy from the fringe and into the mainstream.
Space is limited so please register. We will be updating this page regularly with more information about the meeting.
Day 2 (27th July) is a GEC internal strategy day and is open to GEC members friends and our partners - please contact the secretariat for more information.
