Michał Kurtyka, Anneliese Dodds and Inger Andersen are just some of the key speakers confirmed to address the New Statesman‘s second Global Policy Forum on Tuesday 9 February. 

Our inaugural Global Policy Forum in June focussed on the challenges facing policymakers in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. On 9 February 2021, join us to discuss arguably the next big challenge for countries worldwide: the climate crisis and sustainable growth. At this online event, leaders and experts from organisations across the globe will discuss how we can achieve sustainability across a range of key areas – from healthcare, to education, to tech. 

Through a series of panel discussions, interviews and live Q&A’s, speakers will discuss how the world can move to a clean energy economy, with sessions across a range of policy areas.
