Bloomberg Green Virtual Festival
The Green Festival will be a true thought leadership experience operating at the crossroads of sustainability, design, culture, food, technology, science, politics and entertainment. Built to foster solutions-oriented conversations, the five-day festival will feature a mix of panels, presentations, fireside chats, and interactive elements. Focused on core issues of climate action, the Green Festival is a celebration of the thinkers, scientists and practitioners leading the way in the climate era.
The conversations will focus around the following pillars
Business & Finance
Climate change poses important new risks and opportunities for business and finance leaders. Many have embraced climate action as an opportunity, providing innovative corporate and finance solutions that are creating a positive impact on both their business and the planet. How products are manufactured, packaged, marketed and distributed, and the degree to which investors put money to work in companies who embraced climate positive practices across the entire life cycle, is one of the most viable ways to move the needle in the right direction. We’ll talk to top names in business, markets, and finance about how and why they’re making the investment in climate action.
Government: The Role of Policy, Power and Law
Policy incentives are key tool in the battle against climate change, and the economic recovery packages being created by governments globally have provided an unprecedented opportunity to move the needle forward on climate action. We’ll talk to top lawmakers, policy makers, and government executives about their plans to address climate change and what they see as the path forward.
Science Data and Insights: Notes from Field
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has proven that “scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal.” Responsible, collective decision making can only be made when there is an agreed upon set of facts upon which to base assumptions about the future, and it is imperative that verified scientific voices be elevated and reported accurately. We’ll engage top scientists working at the edge of change to get their inputs on what can still be done to mitigate the worst of climate change effects.
The Cultural Imperative
A growing number of cultural leaders are using their platform to address climate change. We’ll talk to top cultural influencers and activists about what why they are calling for real climate action and what they’re doing to enact lasting positive change.
