Fairmont Monte Carlo, Monaco — 26 & 27 June 2019
Paris, France, 14 May 2019 — Following a successful launch last year, TRANSITION Forum returns to Monaco on 26 and 27 June to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future through investment and collaborative climate action. Under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II, TRANSITION mobilizes a multi-disciplinary community of global business leaders, policymakers, investors, innovators, scientists and members of civil society to find concrete solutions for humans to prosper while preserving our planet.
"SHIFTING TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLES," is the theme of this year’s Forum, which will focus on how people and organizations worldwide are responding to the ecological transition. Leading players from diverse sectors and industries will examine the paradigm shifts in key areas of daily life which have been impacted by climate change: Food, Mobility, Housing, and Production & Consumption.
