R20 Austrian World Summit

Am 28. Mai 2019 findet in Wien der dritte R20 AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT in der Hofburg statt. Der Klima- und Energiefonds ist auch dieses Jahr wieder ein Partner der internationalen Konferenz.

Our Mission: To Step up Climate Ambition
Climate protection is a challenge which concerns all of us! For the R20 AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT it is particularly important to include everyone and to inspire as many people as possible for the climate protection movement. Arnold Schwarzenegger has said quite rightly: There is no Republican air or Democratic air. We all breathe the same air, and we must keep fighting for a cleaner future!“

As part of a network of climate initiatives, the annual R20 AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT (#R20AWS) is another milestone “From action to transaction” on the way to accelerating climate action on regional and local level.

We sharing our experiences and do our utmost to support each other on our common main goal: to commit political and business leaders, representatives from regions and cities, and the general public to do more to improve our planet and usher in a new era of carbon neutrality and prosperity. Our work will culminate in a call to action to nations to step up their ambition under the Paris Agreement by publishing new commitments before 2020 and cut emissions on a science-based trajectory that limits warming to well below a global average increase of 2 degrees celsius.

The third R20 AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT on May 28th-29th, 2019 will cover the following topics:

  • Collaboration & Partnership for Climate Leadership
  • Scaling Up Sustainable Projects
  • Showcasing Best Practice Examples
  • New Approaches for Raising Awareness and Communication
  • Trends in Climate Financing
  • „Magic Bullet“ Carbon Pricing?
  • The Power of Cities & Regions
  • Connecting the dots: Climate Change – Human Health – Security
  • Role Models Sharing Climate Action Success Stories

NEW: Climate Kirtag
For the very first time the #ClimateKirtag will take place next to the conference venue at Heldenplatz. This public event welcomes every one interested in climate action and features music acts and many stars, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, climate activist Greta Thunberg, ski-champion Aksel Lund Svindal and well-known Austrian musicians amongst others. Music and exhibitions start already at 3pm. The entrance is free of charge!

Im Jahr 2010 gründete Arnold Schwarzenegger die internationale Klimaschutzorganisation R20 (Regions for Climate Action). Ganz nach dem Motto: „Less Talk – More Action“ hat sich R20 als internationaler „Matchmaker for Green Solutions“ etabliert. Arnold Schwarzeneggers Engagement für den Klimaschutz ist ungebrochen. Er und R20 Austria & EU unter der Leitung von Monika Langthaler starteten 2017 den R20 AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT, der unter dem Ehrenschutz von Bundespräsident Alexander Van der Bellen steht.
