Transition Forum: accelerating solutions to save our planet

Transition Forum: accelerating solutions to save our planet

By Cassandra Tanti - May 16, 2019

A forum aimed at speeding up the world’s transition to clean energy is once again being held in Monaco this June. Backed by Prince Albert II, the Transition Forum aims to increase funding for innovative technologies so they can be implemented before it’s too late.

Following a successful launch last year, the Transition Forum will return on 26th and 27th June at the Fairmont Monte Carlo. It will bring together around 350 participants including global business leaders, policymakers, investors, innovators, scientists and members of civil society, to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future through investment and collaborative climate action.

The theme this year is ‘Shifting towards sustainable lifestyles’, focusing on how people and organisations around the world are responding to the ecological transition. It will feature over 50 renowned international speakers, and 20 international startups will focus on new models for sustainable development in food, mobility, housing, and production and consumption.

“If we do not act today, we will no longer be able to act tomorrow,” said Prince Albert during the inaugural forum.

“Global warming is compromising the future of humanity and we must create a new model of sustainable, low-carbon economic development before it is too late,” adds Lionel le Maux, President of Aqua Asset Management and Co-Founder of Transition Forum. “Our objectives are to increase the cross-sector partnerships and investments needed to scale innovative solutions which are key to helping the world achieve its sustainable development goals.”

Five networking sessions will be held to connect international decision makers from multiple sectors and disciplines around the verticals: cities and territories, corporates, startups, foundations, and Monaco.
