Friday 14 December 2018, Cape Town, South Africa - From 10-11 January 2019, 500 innovators and leaders from governments, civil society, private sector, development organizations, media and the public will meet in Cape Town for the third global forum on green economy.  Hosted by the Department of Environmental Affairs of South Africa, the third PAGE Ministerial Conference will highlight and celebrate innovation, entrepreneurship and inclusivity as drivers of green industries and as the bedrock for a better and more sustainable future for all.

As an alliance of five UN agencies –UN Environment, ILOUNDPUNIDOUNITAR – the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE), supports countries in meeting their sustainability commitments, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals related to the economy, jobs, industrial development and the environment. It also works with them to meet their national commitments to tackling climate change under the Paris Agreement through inclusive green economy approaches.

The third PAGE Ministerial Conference will focus on how to advance inclusive and sustainable economies for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and targets of the Paris Agreement on climate change. Over the course of two days, participants will zoom in on how we can develop and implement innovative policy solutions to green the economy, how to green the financial system and make it work for the future, how to find solutions that work for everybody and empower the most vulnerable and how to enable and incentivize consuming and producing sustainably.

It’s an ambitious agenda, and one that requires expertise from a diversity of our global community. That’s why PAGE is bringing together a group of similarly ambitious innovators and leaders to guide these discussions.  From Chief Economist of the UN, Elliot Harris, to Kimmo Tiilikaiinan, Minister for Environment of Finland, Pierre Venter from the Banking Association of South Africa, and Kumi Naidoo, Secretary General of Amnesty International – PAGE has gathered the most incisive minds from across the spectrum of social, economic and environmental leadership to work together towards real solutions.
