Bridging Nature, Climate and Finance

Oxford University’s flagship event on enterprise and the environment is back on 1 October 2024. This forum brings together leaders from business, policy, civil society and academia to build relationships, share knowledge and develop solutions that will help accelerate the transition to a sustainable future. 

With the shadow of an ecological crisis threatening to unravel progress in carbon reduction efforts, this gathering will address how we can foster economic growth within the confines of our planet's boundaries, ensuring the protection of our invaluable natural resources. By bringing together thought leaders, innovators, and decision-makers, this event will support immediate action and the development of pragmatic, equitable approaches to safeguard our environment.

With cutting edge research on nature-based solutions and a focus on applied research, Oxford’s Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment is well placed to convene this critical forum to assess the most effective strategies for protecting nature and biodiversity while tackling climate change and integrating these solutions into global economic systems.

Confirmed speakers include David Craig, Co-chair, The Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD); Professor Irene Tracey CBE, Vice-Chancellor, University of Oxford; Andre Hoffmann, Vice-Chairman, Roche and Pilita Clark, Associate Editor, Financial Times. 

The World Forum will bring together 100 extraordinary individuals from policy, business, civil society and academia. The programme is designed to nurture relationships, break silos and build a collaborative global community of leaders to support a transition to a sustainable future.
