One year after the launch of the Planetary Emergency Plan during the London Climate Action Week 2019, the Club of Rome, Potsdam Institute, WWF and Planetary Emergency Partners reflect on the ‘Emergence from Emergency’ narrative in a post-COVID context and celebrate the achievements of the Partnership which has grown to over 250 members during its first year.
The anniversary series will be kicked off at 12h BST. Together with the Potsdam Institute, the Club of Rome looks forward to generating a discussion around the revision of the Planetary Emergency Plan in light of the current context, with the aim of taking into consideration learnings from COVID-19 and laying-out the road ahead for a successful Climate COP26, Biodiversity COP15 and the necessary pillars for global resilience to future health-climate-biodiversity crises.
The afternoon programme will continue with a series of partner-led events (14h-18h BST), highlighting the multiple facets of planetary emergency (from health and nature-based solutions to sustainable finance) – a testament to the diverse nature of the Partnership and the need for immediate action to secure a healthy planet for healthy people.
A virtual reception and ‘cocktail event’ will close of the afternoon in style (around 18h BST), for it is not a true celebration without a toast.
