Town Hall: Moving the Green Economy Forward
March 26, Friday
10:30 - 12:00
The worldwide transition to a green economy is underway - not only due to the need to manage greenhouse gas emissions, but also to maximize efficient use of key resources such as water and fossil fuels, protect against rising prices for basic commodities, and create new job opportunities as the world recovers from the worst economic downturn in decades. The Town Hall will explore the biggest opportunities and challenges that lie ahead and the implementation of the necessary changes to achieve success.
