The Green Economy Coalition Global Meeting 2019 took place in Cape Town, South Africa, from January 8th – 9th 2019. This vibrant, delegate-led event brought together representatives of business, finance, NGOs and citizen’s groups from around the world in order to debate and decide how we can help to make the economies of the future equitable, inclusive, and people-focused.
On this page, we're bringing together all the documents, slideshows and photos from our week in Cape Town. We'll also be publishing a more detailed report on the Global Meeting, including our highlights and lessons from our partners, in the coming weeks, so watch this space.
