Ros Harvey, Founder and Managing Director of The Yield, will take part in The IX Sydney Summit this year.
Taking place at the ICC Sydney this 2 & 3 November, the summit will focus on climate growth and accelerating pathways to zero.
The Summit is organised with the NSW government in collaboration with WWF Australia, Citi, Australian Ethical, ANZ, Deloitte and a coalition of partners, to address scaling net zero technology innovation and investment.
Confirmed speakers include NSW Environment Minister Matt Kean, UNEP-FI Co-Chair Jacki Johnson, Bezos Earth Fund CEO Andrew Steer, Climate Group CEO Helen Clarkson, Richard Branson and Johan Rockstrom among many others. An outcome statement of recommendations for accelerating pathways from Australia will be published from the Summit and shared through media and partner channels into COP 26.
Ros will take part in the Agriculture & Land Use Workshop designed to discuss real, practical ideas that make a significant impact to climate growth.
Prior to the summit, participants will be asked to submit ideas on how to accelerate pathways to zero in this sector. Together with the chair, a team of summit organisers will select the most innovative and ambitious ideas to be put up on the screen. The audience will discuss these ideas at roundtables and groups will shuffle every 20 min. In the end, the audience will use an app to vote for the idea they find most effective.
