The Road to Katowice and beyond
As part of an institutional network of climate initiatives, the annual R20 Austrian World Summit is another milestone “From action to transaction” on the way to accelerating climate action on regional and local level. After COP 23 in Bonn and the One Planet Summit in Paris in 2017, the journey ahead takes us from the R20 AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT in Vienna to the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco (Sep 12–14), the One Planet follow-up event at the Climate Week in New York (Sep 26), to the COP 24 in Katowice/Poland (Dec 3–14) and many other events that will unite all actors involved in building a positive agenda.
We will share our experiences and do our utmost to support each other on our common main goal: to commit political and business leaders, representatives from regions and cities, and the general public to do more to improve our planet and usher in a new era of carbon neutrality and prosperity. Our work will culminate in a call to action to nations to step up their ambition under the Paris Agreement by publishing new commitments before 2020 and cut emissions on a science-based trajectory that limits warming to well below a global average increase of 2 degrees celsius.
Next year´s R20 AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT on May 28th, 2019 will follow-up on further initiatives and the implementation of projects based on the results of this year´s outcome.
