Event organizer: The Club of Rome, The Potsdam Institute

The Club of Rome and The Potsdam Institute will launch the Planetary Emergency Action Plan, making the case for declaring a Planetary Emergency and providing a set of key policy levers addressing the cross-cutting challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss and human health and well-being. It outlines a vision of transformation and regeneration, a decade in which we steer the development path of our planet onto one which is inherently beneficial for all living species, leaving no one behind. Recognising the intricate interdependence between the three challenges, the Planetary Emergency Action Plan has been developed to inject a much-needed new approach to conventional siloed policy action, focusing on protecting and restoring our Global Commons and setting in motion a series of economic and social transformations, to guarantee the long-term health and well-being of our people and planet.
