2017 Global Week of Green Business and the Climate Movement

#ECO4CLIM17

From 2nd October 2017 to 8th October 2017

Every year, the Global Week of Green Business and the Climate Movement takes place cities and communities around the world; seeking to empower ecopreneurs and scale up green business solutions that tackle climate change. Concretely, its goals are:

  • Promote, connect and empower climate ecopreneurs
  • Strengthen local green economy ecosystems
  • Boost sustainable business networks
  • Implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement

 

The 2017 Edition -ECO4CLIM17- will be held on October 2-8 2017, with the global winner participating in the COP23 Climate Summit in Bonn (Germany) on November 6-17. All of the Week’s events follow this structure:

  • Expert panel on “climate challenges and green business opportunities” (1h30): roundtable with key green economy stakeholders (businesses, civil society, academia, public agencies, financial institutions, media…), followed by an open debate; to identify concrete challenges posed by climate change locally, and then outline opportunities for ecopreneurs to build green business solutions to tackle them.
  • Break (15 min.)
  • Climate Champion Awards (1h45): pre-selected local green businesses and ecopreneurs pitch their climate impacts to a diverse audience, focusing on the mitigation and adaptation/resilience solutions they provide; and a mixed jury (experts + audience) decides the winners.
