P4G Copenhagen Summit 2018

02.07.2018  15:50
P4G – Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 – is a global initiative with the ambition of becoming the world’s leading forum for developing concrete public-private partnerships at scale to advance solutions to help meet humanity’s greatest needs on food and agriculture, water, energy, cities and circular economy.

              

On 19-20 October 2018, Denmark will gather Heads of States and Government, leaders of international organizations, businesses, academia, and the civil society at the first global P4G Summit to form a powerful coalition for delivering on the sustainable development goals through innovative partnerships. Participation from South Korea, Vietnam, China, Bangladesh, Singapore, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa, Mexico, Chile, and Colombia is expected.
 
The P4G Summit will be a place for accelerating and showcasing partnerships of large-scale impact. Whether it is partnering through new financing models to address the shortage of water, creating new models for mobility in megacities, implementing new food production techniques to address the food crisis, scaling energy optimizing of buildings, or developing innovative solutions for addressing plastic waste. Partnership facilitation will be a key part of the summit.
 
Thematically, the P4G Copenhagen Summit 2018 will have an overarching theme of cities as increasingly important center of economic activity. In the very near future increased urbanization is expected to trigger an enormous demand for new sustainable solutions.
 
The P4G Copenhagen Summit marks an important first step in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, but success is not a given. As the partnerships emerge it will be critical to move fast to define process and progress for each partnership, because in changing the world, 12 years is a sprint.
