The term climate crisis is increasingly replacing the term climate change – a shift that makes the magnitude of the future challenge even clearer. This challenge can only be met if science, society, politics and business pull together. And so, following the historical efforts of Theodore Roosevelt’s “New Deal” policy to overcome the Great Depression in the 1930s, the international panelists will assess central questions such as: How can a Green New Deal succeed? How may science, society, politics and, especially, a globalised business world find ways out of the global climate crisis?

With following Speakers: Kumsal Bayazit, Mark Ferguson, Dieter Wegener, Martin Heinig, Andrea Noske, Ed Gerstner
