Valuing Natures Solutions to climate change

In times of heightened climate risks and a pending climate crisis, the Geneva Macro Labs want to make a difference by offering a clear, open and transparent discussion about the opportunities of new initiatives for public-private partnerships around its Solutions theme "Blockchain 4 Impact".

Having organised it at this strategic moment will give further impact towards a greener economy. To this effect, we had invited experts in the field of concrete applications to combat climate change.

Our speakers introduced us to their projects of developing sustainable solutions for green investment in order to address climate change.
