Format of World Climate Forum


Its engaging digital format combines dynamic keynotes, interactive panel discussions, and informative workshops delivered through webinars and podcasts produced to the highest standard via live and on-demand.

 

The programme for each Forum will be divided into two days: day one will focus on the energy transition and infrastructure,
day two will focus on recovery and adaptation. The key drivers highlighted across both days and sessions are finance, policy,
innovation and partnerships.

In addition, World Climate Forum’s unique value proposition – Engagement Hubs will serve as a precursor series of activities and announcements to the actual event. They are information portals that enable interaction between thought leaders and WCF’s community, before, during and after the event sustaining momentum on the roadmap to 2021 and COP26.
