Sustainability after COVID-19: Valuing nature in the post-pandemic world

2 June 2020, 15h00 - 17h00
Genève, Suisse

What does nature have to do with COVID-19? Lessons from the Dasgupta Review

How can governments and businesses better value natural and social capital for informed decision making?

How can investment in biodiversity and natural capital support long-term economic recovery from the COVID-19 fallout?

This webinar offers a discussion on these critical issues on the role of natural capital in recovery from COVID-19. It is organized in the context of the Economics for Nature (E4N) programme, which is focused on ensuring that nature has a voice in economic and planning processes. E4N is funded by the MAVA Foundation and is driven by the Green Economy Coalition (GEC), Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP), Capitals Coalition, WWF France, and Finance Watch.

The NDCs we want – Forests in the Focus

10 June 2020, 16h00 - 17h00
Genève, Suisse

Nature-based solutions (NBS), including forests, must play a crucial role if we are to keep average global temperature rise below 1.5°C. However, analysis suggests that current NDCs do not sufficiently and adequately include nature-based solutions yet – that despite the urgency of the climate crisis, the potential of forests to mitigate and adjust to climate change is largely untapped. Now is the moment to change this, with Parties to the UNFCCC having committed to ratcheting up climate ambition and to submit their enhanced NDCs by COP26.

In this learning session, Fernanda de Carvalho and Shaun Martin from WWF will provide background and context on the current international climate policy agenda and present WWF’s recommendations on enhancing Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) through NBS. Erin Beasley from Conservation International and John Verdieck from The Nature Conservancy will elaborate on the role of forests in current NDCs, including concrete country examples, and provide recommendations how countries can better integrate forests in their NDCs by COP26, including existing guidance by UNFCCC.

Roadmaps for resilient decarbonizing cities

13 July 2020 - 24 July 2020
Genève, Suisse

La transition écologique, c’est maintenant.

Les villes, les territoires et les citoyens s’engagent pour un changement de mode vie, de production, de mobilité, de communication et de transition énergétique.

Les architectes, les urbanistes, les administrateurs ainsi que les entreprises et le grand public revendiquent un nouveau projet d’avenir pour le 21e siècle. La nouvelle génération de professionnels, motivés et formés, agira collectivement comme agent du changement, afin de soutenir et inspirer le mouvement vers un développement durable des lieux, des communautés, des villes et des régions.

Il devient impératif de développer un nouveau cycle de savoirs et de savoir-faire pour créer et accélérer les projets de la transition écologique. Les villes et les territoires doivent élaborer un nouveau projet d’émissions négatives en termes d’espace, de société et d’esthétique, comme un défi existentiel global et local.
Le Workshop/master class propose un nouveau cadre éducatif afin d’accélérer la transition des villes grâce à une nouvelle génération d’architectes, urbanistes et paysagistes.

Ce cursus interdisciplinaire innovant fait appel à des professionnels ambitieux et conscients, prêts à s’engager dans la construction d’un futur durable.

Le Transition Workshop 2020 a pour mission de:

- Sensibiliser les architectes, urbanistes et paysagistes au développement durable.
- Élaborer et transmettre des outils et méthodes de design pour des villes et bâtiments résilients face à l’urgence climatique.
- Outiller une nouvelle génération de professionnels (praticiens, administrateurs publics, décideurs) avec les capacités de construire, de réhabiliter, de préserver et réutiliser tout en protégeant l’environnement.

Acceptation sur dossier. Ouvert aux étudiant-e-s en architecture, urbanisme, préservation, études urbaines, études politiques et études environnementales (niveau Master ou Doctorat) souhaitant qualifier leurs diplômes en vue d’entrer dans la sphère professionnelle de la transition écologique.

La Fondation Braillard Architectes et l’EPFL, dans le cadre du Eco-Century Project ®, octroient une certification officielle pour la participation au Workshop.
Crédits ECTS: si vous êtes étudiant-e, ce Workshop octroie 4 crédits ECTS.

Geneva Health Forum

16 November 2020 - 18 November 2020
Genève, Suisse

The Geneva Health Forum, created in 2006, is one of the most important conferences of Global Health. Every two years it brings together Swiss and International participants from all sectors.

Health systems are facing serious challenges. Resources are increasingly limited in a rapidly changing world, where the nature of health needs are equally changeable. But at the same time, technological progress in the digital age and the emergence of new health actors expand our array of potential solutions to these unprecedented challenges.

One of the key aspects in order to be able to tackle those challenges is that health systems be better organized to become learning systems, that can study their own practices to learn lessons that will inform these practices and improve their ability to adapt rapidly to the evolution of health needs.

This year's theme is "Improving access to health: learning from the field". The forum will notably explore innovations that are put in place in the field to improve learning and implementation cycles in Global Health, with a view to best adapt the practices and improve access to health in a changing world.
