Conversation Cafe: What do we need to create if we don’t meet our climate goals?

Bioneers brings together a very diverse, discerning, engaged and reflective community, and the curated conversations around crucial topics we have been hosting recently (“Conversation Cafes”) have proven highly popular and stimulating. Each session begins with a very brief presentation by one of the conference presenters as a “conversation starter” to frame the topic, followed by structured group discussion.

There is a very real chance that we might not make our climate targets in the near term, resulting in unprecedented changes to life on this planet. In this session, conversation starter Ashoka Finley will explore how we might build additional resilience in the infrastructure and systems we rely on for our survival to face this reality. In our subsequent conversation we’ll seek to collectively build a roadmap of necessary action in the face of missed climate milestones. Bioneers offers us a unique setting in which to convene a diverse set of changemakers to create more possibilities and build towards collective action. Facilitated by Amy Lenzo and FireHawk Hulin.
