On September 17, 2020 climate action heroes will once again gather in Vienna for the 4th annual AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT. Alarmed by numerous temperature records being broken worldwide and devastating fires throughout the Amazon rainforest, Australia and other regions it is obvious that climate action has to be accelerated. The climate movement has gained momentum in the past two years. Now our goal is to reach out and inspire as many people as possible to become part of the solution and write a new chapter in climate action history.
We need ambition and action from political and business decision makers but also an active roll-out of solutions for all of us. Time is running out. The AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT will show that real solutions to tackle climate change and pollution do exist. We will showcase innovative projects from different sectors and matchmake green solutions. Following the motto “less talk and more action,” the AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT has already become one of the central hubs for best practices that will help clean up the environment, reduce harmful pollution and deal with global climate change. The time to act is now.
