APSL We Sri Lanka event: ‘Transcending the Climate Crisis and creating a Sustainable Green Growth Economy’ – Saturday 23rd March 2024 2.00 – 6.00pm Nunn Hall IOE / Faculty of Education and Society, University of London

Tackling the climate crisis and driving sustainable green growth are global imperatives relevant for both emerging and mature economies. For instance, Sri Lanka is considered to be one of the top ten climate fragile nations in the world, and is also tackling its worst economic crisis in recent history. The UK is struggling to reconcile commitments to transition to Net Zero as it is battling energy and food inflation, as well as a recessionary economy.

We need to demystify and make tangible the action governments, businesses and communities need to take to overcome the climate crisis as well as the opportunities and technologies to tap the emerging green economy – to secure energy security, spur growth and drive prosperity in years to come, both here in the UK and in Sri Lanka.

So, join us in the heart of London for an engaging afternoon of talks, panel discussions and networking with Sustainability Champions from across academia, business, consulting and policy so we can better understand how to play our part in ‘Transcending the Climate Crisis and creating a Sustainable Green Growth Economy.’

Prof Mohan Munasinghe, Vice Chair, UN IPCC that shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, 2021 Blue Planet Prize Laureate, and Chairman, Presidential Expert Committee, Sustainable Sri Lanka 2030 Vision will present the keynote address.
