Acclimatise is excited to announce its presence at Climate Week Columbia 2020, an official event of The Climate Group in partnership with the Green Chamber of Commerce, KIMSA and Brigard Urrutia, with the support of the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce, Grupo Doble Ele, LIM (Leadership in Motion), Peace Startup Foundation, Sostenerte, Agenda Ambiental and Conscious Global Market. Acclimatise Business Development Associate, Dr Laura Canevari, will be speaking at the event, at 11:40 AM (COT) on the opening day, September 21st.
During this event attendees will learn about innovative climate solutions from scientific research and ancestral knowledge, sustainable companies and enterprises and cultural and artistic manifestations promoted by NGOs and social and environmental movements of civil society. The purpose of this event is to motivate participants to generate new ideas, change their lifestyles and, through new sustainable consumption habits, influence production and marketing patterns in the Columbian economy that affect the climate.
Around 60 representatives of pioneering organisations who seek to scale their impact on the economy and society will take part in the conferences, panels and cultural and artistic activities to contribute effective solutions to the climate emergency.
Dr Canevari will reflect on the global experience of Acclimatise supporting businesses and financial institutions integrating climate change considerations into their governance and risk management practices, and introduce her own venture ITACA aimed at accelerating climate adaptation in the Caribbean.
