WEF 2021 Programme through to COP26 and beyond

The WEF's 2021 Programme through to the COP26 Summit and beyond provides a comprehensive briefing series for senior stakeholders in the energy, climate and sustainability domains which considers both the emerging issues affecting the UK’s long term Net Zero strategy and the international contexts shaping them. For the 2021 Season - our 18th year of operations - we are pleased to offer to offer a comprehensive programme fully accessible to both our Members and to our established Knowledge Transfer Network of policymakers, regulators and NGOs. New participants from the corporate sector are welcome subject to space.

The WEF 2021 Prospectus may be found as a slide-deck PDF below and provides full information on the schedule ahead, how to participate in the WEF, and detailed agendas of our two workstreams that include a quartet of COP26 Directors who are supporting the WEF Climate programme.
