COP26 Shifting Systems Roundtable Series

Nov 4 2021, 07:30 GMT - Nov 9 2021, 17:00 GMT

As COP26 approaches, the world is living with the impacts of climate change. Our climate and environmental boundaries are being tested and our systems are changing faster than we expected.  

With world leaders set for critical climate negotiations in Glasgow, Climate Group presents the Net Zero Futures roundtable series designed to unite and connect leaders in policy, business, finance, and advocacy to share, support and shift systems and realise net zero futures. Each roundtable brings together critical stakeholders from across Climate Group’s networks to co-create a series of recommendations for short term actions and influential levers that could start to shift critical elements within key emitting systems towards a net zero future.  

Systems change for a net zero future requires radical collaboration which is only possible if these stakeholders work together and utilise their influence in critical areas. This roundtable series asks participants to share best practice, lessons learnt, and the challenges they face to support the development of key recommendations for short term action that can shift key systems towards a net zero future. 

Aims: 

  • Share cross sector and cross industry learnings to support systems shifts 
  • Support the development of key action areas to shift systems in the short and long term   
  • Shift critical elements and understand the levers that can result in shifting systems  

Objectives: 

  • Prioritise: Understand what must be prioritised to create systems change for the short, medium and longer term from different perspectives 
  • Prepare: Learn from different stakeholders on how to prepare your organisation to have an impact and what you can do to contribute to shifting systems 
  • Pathways: Develop a set of recommendations for business, governments, NGOs, and financers to take real short-term actions and help shift the system being discussed
