APRIL 26, COPENHAGEN: Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen of Denmark today announced that Copenhagen will host the very first P4G Summit on October 19 and 20, 2018.
The P4G Summit will gather Heads of States and Government, leaders of international organizations, businesses, academia and civil society to form a powerful coalition for delivering on the sustainable development goals through innovative partnerships. Already, P4G is expecting participation from South Korea, Vietnam, Bangladesh, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa, Mexico, Chile and Colombia.
The Summit will showcase partnerships of large-scale impact, highlighting P4G partnerships selected for funding and facilitation while also drawing upon the P4G network of partners, organizations and individuals to inspire furthered connection for scaling up innovative climate solutions.
Thematically, the P4G Summit in Copenhagen will highlight “healthy cities” as one of the Initiative’s five focus areas. The Initiative recognizes rapid urbanization – and the necessity for health and sustainability in these growing spaces -- as a high demand area for green growth solutions.
The P4G Copenhagen Summit marks an important first step in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. As partnerships emerge it will be critical to move quickly to define process and progress for each partnership.
