Climate Diplomacy Week 2017 in Singapore
Climate change is one of the major challenges of the 21st century, presenting risks to international prosperity and security. Securing international action in response is a key foreign policy challenge.
From 19 to 25 June 2017, embassies around the world are celebrating Climate Diplomacy Week, with events taking place to highlight climate action in the EU and beyond. Conferences, citizens’ debates, exhibitions, films and social media activities aim to encourage informed debate on post-Paris climate diplomacy.
The first German-UK-French Climate Diplomacy Day was held on 9 September 2014. Events held that day in German, British and French missions in over 30 countries highlighted the importance of our climate diplomacy partnership, showcased successful climate projects, and emphasised the need for ongoing climate action. The Climate Diplomacy Day has been continued since then.
For this year's Climate Diplomacy Week in Singapore, the European Union Delegation is proposing an event entitled 'Climate Change: Innovation and Land Transport' on Friday 23rd June 2017. The discussions in this seminar will focus on reducing emissions from land transport. Participants will be sharing their experiences on clean urban mobility and looking ahead on areas on innovations and suitable technologies to achieve the zero-carbon city objective.
