Now is the time to catalyse climate action in Australia. Our summit will focus on sharing knowledge and building capacity for climate action among Australia's peak bodies, across all levels of government, business and NGOs-with an agenda driven by the industry peak bodies collaborating together for a Climate Ready Australia 2030.
Day 1 will include the "must-have conversations" affecting organisations that are serious about advancing climate action and enabling a just transition. It will open with strategic thought leadership and discourse to accelerate climate action, with a range of curated and challenging keynotes, discussions and panels. Be inspired by the exhibition space, connect with new partners over lunch and join our official reception and networking event later in the day.
Day 2 will focus on capability building and includes bespoke two-hour learning labs, co-designed and delivered by Griffith University and industry experts. Following on from the first day's discussions, day two is themed around getting to the "how" of climate action-developing knowledge, leadership, capability and responses to empower effective and just climate action across Australian society.
