Fast-Tracking Transformative Climate Action
Global Green Growth Week 2023 at a Glance

7 Years Left! No Planet B.

The findings of the recently published Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report undoubtedly show that the earth is on the brink of irreversible disaster. Global Green Growth Institute’s President and Chair, H.E. Ban Ki-moon, has been constantly and consistently raising the questions with world leaders to take more ambitious climate actions. There are too many initiatives and commitments at global, regional, national, and decentralized levels around the world. Alarmingly, most of them are not ambitious enough to create substantial change and be game changers. Addressing the sustainability crisis requires impactful policies and climate solutions that match the scale and the magnitude of the issues. There is hope, says the IPCC, to bring temperatures back below the 1.5°C threshold by the end of the century. But we must act now and fast. The next seven years is our best “window of opportunity” to focus on bold, transformative changes that will define our futures.

The 2023 edition of GGGI’s global flagship conference – Global Green Growth Week– brings together policymakers, investors, innovators, thought leaders, and delivery agents from public and private sector to offer solutions ready to scale that can achieve the needed green growth transformation in the next seven years.

Call for Presentations!

Thank you for your interest in proposing idea(s) for presentation at the Global Green Growth Week 2023, which will be held on October 23-27, 2023, in the margins of the GGGI 12th Assembly and 16th Council Joint Session. Your interest and participation is appreciated and is the backbone of the success of the week.

The main theme of Green Growth Week 2023 is “Fast-Tracking Transformative Climate Solutions”.

The Global Green Growth Week 2023 will be the forum to share knowledge that can make significant contributions to global efforts to address the climate crisis around the four Dimensions (Goals) of GGGI’s Global Green Growth Index: (1) Efficient and sustainable resource use, (2) Natural capital protection, (3) Green economic opportunities, (4) Social Inclusion.

In 2023 we are also hoping to put a spotlight on young people and their role in achieving sustainable green transition in the context of the climate crisis. With this special attention we aim to build our knowledge sharing with the next generation of climate advocates and leaders.

Submission Deadline: 15 June 2023
