With more than 2 million views, the event has been arranged as a series of thematic conferences, organised by the United Nations Climate Champions, in which experts, representatives of institutions, NGOs, academic organisations and companies have participated to contribute their vision to reach zero net emissions by mid-century in all sectors of the economy (energy, industry, transport, finance, etc.).
