The event will take place alongside the ‘the world’s leading travel trade show’ ITB2020 and provide a space where personal stories and interaction with a driven audience will inspire debate about the actions needed.
Call for speakers!
Are you a climate change activist? A sustainable tourism expert? Run a social enterprise working on environment issues? Come and join us at HagueTalks in Berlin in March 2020!
We put ideas that contribute to peace and justice into action, via events worldwide, featuring the best possible line-up of speakers, along with a committed audience, waiting to interact.
The global conversation on how to deal with climate change is moving fast.
Youth are dominating the lobbying of politicians, businesses and governments to go beyond lip service and really make positive change happen. It goes beyond the inspiration that activists like Greta Thunberg have been providing for many.
Enterprises and entrepreneurs are working on solutions: inspired to both do business and do good. What better venue to capture the spirit of innovation needed to tackle this challenge than an edition of HagueTalks in Berlin asking the question: ‘How can our Global Footprints benefit the world?’
Let us know if you want to become part of the conversation!
