An action-oriented summit

On 19-20 October 2018, Denmark will gather Heads of States and Government, leaders of international organizations, businesses, academia, and the civil society at the first global P4G Summit to form a powerful coalition for sustainable growth through innovative partnerships.

The P4G Summit will be a place for developing and showcasing partnerships of large-scale impact. Whether it is partnering through new financing model to address the shortage of water, creating new models for mobility in megacities, implementing new food production techniques to address the food crisis, scaling energy optimizing of buildings, or developing innovative solutions for addressing plastic waste. Partnership facilitation will be a key part of the summit.

Thematically, the P4G Copenhagen Summit 2018 will pay a special attention to cities as increasingly important center of economic activity. In the immediate future, increased urbanization is expected to trigger an enormous demand for new sustainable solutions.

The P4G Copenhagen Summit marks an important first step in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, but success is not a given. As the partnerships emerge it will be critical to move fast to define process and progress for each partnership, because in changing the world, 12 years is a sprint.

From a cities perspective, partnerships are crucial. I am very excited to participate in the P4G Summit to discuss and develop partnerships that make our cities cleaner, healthier and more sustainable for the future.
