Climate Action Stage

The climate crisis is a complex and urgent challenge that requires radical and transformative innovation to address the causes and consequences of global warming while simultaneously addressing existing inequalities and barriers to well-being and flourishing. However, how can we ensure that the innovation agendas and initiatives pursued at the global, regional, national, and local levels are aligned with the needs, wants, and dreams of people and the planet? How can we involve multiple and diverse stakeholders in the innovation process and create and export effective, ethical, and equitable solutions?
