Nov. 2, 2011 - PRLog -- The fifth edition of Climate Action will be officially launched on 7th December in Durban, South Africa during the 17th Conference of Parties (COP 17) at a prestigious cocktail reception, hosted by Climate Action, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Nedbank at the Moses Mabhida Stadium. Climate Action is also partnering with Scania, New Holland Agriculture, MTN, Suzlon and Schneider Electric for this event.

Under the theme “Partnerships for a Green Economy”, the exclusive invitation only cocktail reception offers a unique opportunity for distinguished guests and COP 17 delegates to network in a relaxed atmosphere at one of Durban’s most iconic venues.  

Preceding the reception, Climate Action, in partnership with ICLEI and the World Green Building Council (WGBC) will be hosting a high-level debate on “Cities of the Future”. Chaired by Gino Van Begin, Deputy Secretary General, ICLEI, the debate will examine the growth and development of sustainable urban areas and infrastructure; an area of growing importance in the run-up to the defining 2012 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Central to this debate will be Carlos Alberto Muniz, Secretary of the Environment of the City of Rio de Janeiro who is also Chairman of the Municipal Committee for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development and has started the process of mobilisation of the society of Rio de Janeiro.

Sula Bruce, Project Director for Climate Action commented “We are delighted to have confirmed such prominent and highly regarded keynote speakers for the Climate Action Networking Event and are also pleased to be able to present such an authoritative and influential panel for the “Cities of the Future” debate. We are confident that this will be one of the most talked about events taking place during COP17.”
