The Joint Actions on Climate Change Conference will consist of representatives of governments, industry, retailers, researchers as well as NGOs, consumer organisations and the financial sector. It will bring these stakeholders together with the aim of fostering a fruitful dialogue and bridging gaps in views and positions on how innovation and design can tackle the crisis of climate change.
