World Climate Forum EUROPE

17th - 18th November, 2020

World Climate Forum Europe (WCF Europe), took place during the virtual London Climate Action Week and strategically supported the priorities and ambitions of the UNFCCC and COP26, exploring green plans and recovery strategies alongside the EU Green New Deal, stimulating ambitious action ahead of COP26 and the World Climate Summit in 2021. The programme was divided into two days: day one focused on the energy transition and infrastructure while day two focused on innovation and investments. The key drivers highlighted across both days and sessions were finance, policy and partnerships.

World Climate Forum Europe (WCF Europe) aimed to raise collective ambition and support the implementation of successful and scalable solutions across the region with an emphasis on the COP26 priority action areas. World Climate Foundation brings its extensive European stakeholder network and decade of experience convening the leading thought-leaders to impact climate action throughout Europe. WCF Europe was the final Forum in the 2020 Series, acting to culminate the outcomes and impact of the World Climate Forum 2020 Series and serving as a focused precursor to COP26 and a catalyst for progress as part of the Decade to Deliver on Climate Action.
