About the Event
This accelerator event, hosted at Villa Necchi Campiglio in Milan in partnership with Wilton Park and with the support of the High-Level Climate Champions’ team, is designed to showcase membership to ‘Race to Zero’ and ‘Race to Resilience’ and explore what this means in practice. It will form part of the UK House programme of events during Italy’s pre-COP in Milan. The conference, held in hybrid format, will be hosted by HM Ambassador to Italy, Jill Morris, and the UNFCCC High-Level Champion Nigel Topping. Speakers will describe their pledges, why they have chosen to commit and how they are addressing the challenges, while focusing on the conditions and policies needed to build resilience and reach net zero.
The event will be held in a hybrid format. For the in-person format there will be limited capacity due to Coronavirus restrictions.
