As the international community rallies around new pledges for an equitable, nature-positive and carbon-neutral future, the challenge is now to contextualize and operationalize this ambition in all reaches of business, finance, government and wider society.
This is why the Capitals Coalition hosted the Global Dialogues series. The Global Dialogues are a collaborative convening of the Capitals Community across the globe to share experiences and discuss transforming decision-making by including the value of nature, people and society. The Global Dialogues are a combination of in-person, online and hybrid events that took place from 24 October – 10 November 2022.
Events were led by Capitals Hubs globally. The Capitals Hubs are formed by communities of practitioners that develop and scale the capitals approach within specific regional or national contexts or within industries or sectors. To find out more on Capitals Hubs, head here.
