“The challenge: How can we lift millions out of poverty, create 600+ million jobs, reduce inequalities, protect the environment and grow the economy?
Where we stand: We have a plan for propelling the world towards a future where human and environmental health are protected, where poverty and hunger are alleviated, where peace and prosperity can flourish. Three years after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, it is time now for action.
To turn these plans into a reality, and to accelerate the change, we need to get the smartest people in the same room and learn from their experiences. So, the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) is gathering around 500 innovators and leaders from governments, civil society, private sector, development organizations, media and the general public. We will showcase the experiences and creativity of first-movers, widen partnerships and engage in an open debate about what it is going to take to for us to have a “just transition” to economies and societies that are more inclusive, stable and sustainable.
Hosted by the Department of Environmental Affairs of South Africa, the third PAGE Ministerial Conference will highlight and celebrate innovation, entrepreneurship and inclusivity as drivers of green industries, and as the bedrock for a better and more sustainable future for all.”
