Date : 26 Sep.2023 / 10.00-11.30 (CET) / 11.00-12.30 (EEST) / 15.00-16.30 (BKK)
Thailand has made significant progress in addressing climate change and committing to the implementation of Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) economic policy, ranking as a leader in the ASEAN region on actions to tackle climate change. Despite accounting for less than 1% of global carbon emissions, Thailand remains among the top ten nations most vulnerable to long-term climate-related risks.
On the other side of the globe, the Nordic region has consistently been at the forefront of sustainable innovation. Media advocacy and innovation ecosystem builders have played crucial roles in addressing the climate crisis by raising awareness, disseminating information, fostering innovation, and promoting collaboration across sectors.
Recognizing the critical role of media, ecosystem development and global-local collaboration in overcoming sustainability challenges, there is an urgent need for ambitious climate actions to accelerate the journey towards the goals of the Paris Agreement as Thailand aims to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by or before 2065. The objective of this session “Accelerate Climate Action through Global Partnership” is to demonstrate and learn from each other about the power of global partnerships in accelerating climate action, with a specific focus on the cooperation between Thailand and Sweden.
Highlights from the session :
- The current climate situation and the next game-changing regulations/trends from both countries.
- The challenges and opportunities of global partnerships and commitment.
- The role of ecosystem builders and media advocacy in this crisis.
- Business model cases, technologies, and best practices in the field from both countries.
