Focused on ‘The state of the global transition’, this meeting will be the largest gathering of civil society and researchers working on a green economy from around the world.

With over 60 green economy national plans now in place and business action scaling up, now is a critical moment for our global network to come together. GEC members have unrivaled expertise on the transformation to green economies - on how to make it fair and inclusive, on how to build economies that protect nature and on how to mobilise for change. In this year’s sessions we will be consolidating that knowledge, co-creating our narrative and planning our next strategic steps together.

Sustainable Prosperity's Mike Wilson will be presenting in the session on Taking stock of the global transition to green economies in which we will be setting the green economy scene and hearing from key GEC experts, including:

  • A status check on the state of the ‘brown economy’
  • International progress on green economy from the UN, OECD, and GGGI
  • Key country and regional perspectives from around the world, including Canada, South Africa, India, Mediterranean countries and the Caribbean region
  • Overview of emerging enabling policies for green economy around the GEC’s 5 themes of change: Measure What Matters, Move the Money, Greening Sectors, Green Must be Fair, and Economics for Nature.
