Green transport: The road to climate recovery
10:00 - 11:00
Legislating for Future Generations- Sustainable transport
Transport systems have radically transformed our relationship to the world around us. Past generations have made transport more accessible, faster, and cheaper, but not sustainable. In 2016 transportation accounted for 24% of global C02 emissions - in the context of the climate crisis, this poses a serious problem. Join this panel session to hear more about the future of sustainable transport and how we can design and legislate for future generations.
12:00 - 13:00
Decarbonizing global supply chains
How young leaders are building the sustainable supply chain of the future. In this session, young project leaders from various sectors will share their experiences in building the carbon-neutral supply chain of the future. The session will be kicked off by a senior representative of the BMW Group sharing their thoughts on supply chain sustainability. The project leaders will then present on their respective work on decarbonizing global supply chains in their respective organisations. These pitches will be followed by a discussion amongst the project leaders sharing their experiences with driving the sustainable redesign of supply chains. The discussion will address challenges in decarbonizing global supply chains on a technical, economical, and cultural level. Participants will have the opportunity to comment on these challenges and will share their strategies to overcome these barriers successfully.

Going the Distance: Lessons from Arctic Explorer Robert Swan OBE, the first person to walk to both Poles
Rising global temperatures is having a devastating impact on the poles - glacial retreat and rising sea levels will continue without swift action. Join us to hear from Arctic Explorer Robert Swan OBE about the necessary work of intervening to protect the Polar regions, building a sustainable future, and the importance of fostering critical leadership in the climate space.

Where to next? The road to clean transport for all
It is clear that modern transportation is not sustainable, and has significantly contributed to climate change – new systems must be embraced urgently. Zero carbon emitting vehicles will need to dominate the next generation of transport. The question is, how can this be achieved, and how can we ensure that there is a high level of accessibility and affordability for all?
19:00 - 20:30
The Last Glaciers” from award-winning filmmaker Craig Leeson and producer Malcolm Wood, with Q&A from Executive Producer, William Pfeiffer
The Last Glaciers” is Craig Leeson’s journey to discover the loss of glacial ice and the impact of climate change while highlighting his extreme personal risk with para-alpinism and the similarities to the extreme danger our planet currently faces. The film strives to convey an optimism about combating climate change while continuing the conversation and motivating individuals to make a difference.
The film delivers an immersive experience that is one of the most comprehensive films ever produced about the relationship between climate change, mountain environments, and glaciers, capturing the fragility of the natural world, the impact humans have on our life support systems and the friendship, personal challenges and tragedies experienced by the explorers during their journey.
