Event description
“How can our Global Footprints benefit the world?”

About this Event

The global conversation on how to deal with climate change is moving fast. Youth are dominating the lobbying of politicians, businesses and governments to go beyond lip service, and really make positive change happen. The Netherlands is at the forefront of discussions, as one of the countries facing severe consequences if action is not taken.

Europe is taking the lead in encouraging a global commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, promoting green growth and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

It goes beyond the inspiration that activists like Greta Thunberg have been providing for many. Many enterprises and multiple entrepreneurs are working on solutions: inspired to both do business and do good.

What better venue to capture the spirit of innovation needed to tackle this challenge, than an edition of Hague Talks in Berlin asking the question: ‘How can our Global Footprints benefit the world?’ It would take place on the sidelines of ‘the world’s leading travel trade show’, and provide a space where personal stories and interaction with a young audience will inspire debate about the actions needed.

The city of The Hague itself recently scored an ‘A’ grade for its climate policy including its ambition to be climate neutral by 2030 and its partnerships with housing corporations, NGOs, industry, regional and national government. The Hague was the only city in the Netherlands and 1 of the 9 cities in Europe to achieve this grade.

The event will be managed by The Hague & Partners, in cooperation with & The Embassy of The Netherlands in Berlin.
