EcoSummit: Building a sustainable and desirable future, Gold Coast, Australia 15 June 2023

Downforce, is thrilled to announce its participation in the highly anticipated 6th International EcoSummit, taking place from June 13 to 17, 2023, at the prestigious Gold Coast Convention Centre. This event serves as a global platform for scientists, practitioners, and policymakers to collaboratively address the pressing environmental, social, and economic challenges that confront our world today.

Under the theme of "Building a Sustainable and Desirable Future," EcoSummit 2023 aims to explore innovative strategies for adapting to a changing land and seascape. With an increasing world population, particularly in coastal regions, the urgency of constructing sustainable cities and utilising resources responsibly has become indisputable. The summit endeavours to produce a comprehensive declaration that encompasses its vision and policy recommendations, fostering positive change on a global scale.

We are honoured to have Professor Jacqueline McGlade, Downforce's esteemed Chief Scientist, join us as a distinguished plenary speaker on June 15. Professor McGlade's enlightening session, titled "Natural Prosperity, Well-being, and the Universal Value of Nature," will delve into the intrinsic connection between humanity's well-being and the preservation of nature. Her expertise in this field promises to deliver thought-provoking insights that inspire action and drive sustainable practices forward.

Furthermore, Professor McGlade will participate as a panellist in Plenary Panel 2: "Transformation to a Sustainable and Desirable Future." This engaging discussion will tackle the essential question of how we can envision and create a future centred on the sustainable well-being of both humans and the rest of nature. The panellists will explore solutions to overcome the political, social, and economic barriers that hinder progress, emphasizing the importance of collaborative efforts and innovative approaches to shaping the future we all aspire to.

Joining Professor McGlade at this momentous event will be Downforce's Head of APAC, Ben Wark. We encourage all attendees to seize this remarkable opportunity to connect with our experts, exchange ideas, and forge partnerships that contribute to the global sustainability movement.
