• February Coffee Morning
    Wed, February 24, 2021
    10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

As we start the lunar new year, join us for our upcoming February Coffee Morning to connect with members and learn more greening the economy post COVID-19. The meeting will take place at the Heyground Sky Lounge.

Learn more about climate change and how that’s affecting our world today and what we can do on a day to day basis to generate less waste. We’ll also learn about more sustainable methods for working towards a green economy to support reducing environmental risks.

We will be holding a panel discussion on this important issue with Stelios Grafakos from the Global Green Growth Institute.

Dr. Stelios Grafakos is a Principal Economist in GGGI’s Climate Action and Inclusive Development Unit, based in Seoul, South Korea. In his current role, he is responsible for GGGI’s work on (macro)economic aspects of green growth, particularly those related to countries’ investment needs to implement their green and low carbon growth strategies and policies. He is also leading GGGI’s technical work on supporting member and partner countries to develop their Long-Term Low Emissions Development Strategies.

Prior to GGGI, Stelios was the Head of Environment and Climate Change group at the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He led a number of research, advisory and capacity building projects on climate change economics and policy issues, supporting local and national governments in low- and middle-income countries, to develop their low carbon and climate-resilient strategies.

There will also be time for question and answer so please come to support and learn more about this issue! Due to safety concerns, there is a limited number of tickets (15) for the event so be sure to sign up soon. Coffee and tea will be available.

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
