IKEM Academy 2023

Earth 2050: transformative strategies for a climate-positive planet

IKEM Academy participants

Registration for IKEM Academy 2023 is now open! This year’s Academy, titled ‘Earth 2050: transformative strategies for a climate-positive planet’, investigates how bold action and out-of-the-box thinking can empower communities, foster inclusive decision-making, build resilience – and pave the way towards carbon neutrality by 2050.

The 5-day programme features interactive workshops, presentations, a site visit and panel discussions led by renowned energy and climate experts. Discussion topics will include:

  • How can we navigate the process of system transformation while balancing diverse needs and interests?
  • In an era of deepening global conflict, how can we build consensus for climate action?  
  • How can adaptive measures respond effectively to local needs – and is it possible to scale up these solutions?
  • What role can new digital technologies and artistic initiatives play in promoting collaborative responses?
