As Marrakech initiates the work to effectively implement the Paris Agreement, via a combination of sustainable innovation and international cooperation; #ECO4CLIM16 contributes by empowering ecopreneurs to provide communities with sound business solutions to mitigation and adaptation challenges; and strengthening green economy ecosystems and business networks around them. The event comprises two main parts:

  • First, the Climate Innovation Lab, where ecopreneurs, green companies, civil society organizations, and other key stakeholders, will come together to identify local climate challenges and outline inspiring sustainable business solutions to address them.
  • Second, the Climate Champion Awards, where pre-selected ecopreneurs and green SMEs will pitch their projects, products, or services, to an expert jury and a diverse audience. Prizes include interviews by international media, mentoring by sponsors, and participation in the COP22 Summit for one global winner.

    Adding local flavor, the climate innovation lab in Berlin will tackle local challenges such as clean water, fresh air, a sustainable traffic infrastructure and alike in several workshop sessions, where sustainable organizations will solve real world problems with interdisciplinary participants. The goal is to empower ecopreneurs and scale up green business solutions that tackle climate change.

    Building on the event’s energy, #ECO4CLIM’s local chapter in Berlin will potentially evolve into a permanent climate innovation lab, where multi-stakeholder co-creation sessions, coupled with online crowdsourcing, will mainstream climate-championing sustainable businesses; and import, export, and replicate high-impact models from across this expanding global climate movement.
