Blue & Green Tomorrow is a media partner of the UN Environmental Programme (UNEP) and Climate Action’s Sustainable Innovation Forum, which aims to give experts a platform to share innovative solutions to address climate change, green growth and sustainable development.

Now in its fifth year, the Sustainable Innovation Forum, which kicks off on December 9 in Lima, Peru, brings together world leaders, CEOs, senior executive, national, regional and city leaders, investors and industry experts to share ideas. The event aims to inform and facilitate collaboration through networking, informed discussion and the creation of innovative partnerships.

The event is organised by Climate Action, in partnership with UNEP alongside the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP).

The forum will focus on the big issues at play to tackle climate change right now, such as putting a price on carbon and enhancing public-private sector engagement. The event already has an impressive line up of speakers, representing a range of different sectors and countries, including global economist Lord Nicholas Stern.
