Who would have thought that the first half of 2020 would witness the largest ever annual fall of CO2 emissions or that wildlife would emerge in unlikely places? Trillions of dollars are being mobilised to rebuild the global economy, but is an ethical, sustainable rebuild possible? Will we see a sustainable new economy that stops global heating and the destruction of the natural world? Out of this pandemic we have an opportunity to find new and lasting climate solutions.

Hack the crisis

Can you come up with a new solution to how we can open up access to food for those who need it most? Find alternative ways to power up home offices? Deliver changes to reduce carbon emissions and creating healthy commuting habits whilst observing social distancing? From energy systems to travel, urbanisation, health and wellbeing to digital innovations, we have a number of tracks that need your ideas.

Let’s build a better future together

The coronavirus outbreak has managed to transform our lives in the blink of an eye. Across the world, the responses and innovative solutions being demonstrated are inspiring. But is that enough?

Let’s start a movement by using our ideas and solidarity to build a better, healthier, future for everybody.
