Satellite Events - PCD 12
Petersberg Climate Dialogue XII
In the face of the global health, biodiversity and climate crises, we must take global solidarity and multilateral cooperation to a whole new level. In order to rise to the challenge, we must take ambitious climate action now, recognizing time is not on our side. Therefore, the ministerial segment of this year’s PCD will take place on May 6-7 and focus on political guidance for the UNFCCC negotiation agenda of COP 26 in Glasgow. We are delighted to announce that UN Secretary General António Guterres, Federal Chancellor of Germany Dr. Angela Merkel and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson have already confirmed their participation in the high level segment of the dialogue.
Building on last year’s virtual approach, various satellite events, taking place from May 3 to May 10, will complete this year’s ministerial segment. These will involve a range of government and non-state actors – including mayors, CEOs, civil society leaders, academics, and others.
