A line-up of experts, change-makers and industry leaders will join forces during the week.

Climate change and loss of biodiversity are under spotlight in the latest event series held by Expo 2020 Dubai.

The Climate and Biodiversity Week follows the announcement earlier this month of Expo 2020 and DP World becoming a Global Alliance Founding Partner of The Earthshot Prize - the most ambitious environmental prize in history established by Britian's Prince William.

A line-up of experts, change-makers and industry leaders will join forces during the week, taking audiences on a virtual journey towards urgent, decisive action on climate change and preserving biodiversity.

The digital event will take place on October 20 and 21, featuring keynote remarks from Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director-General of Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau and Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World.

"Humanity's success in overcoming climate change and biodiversity loss - which collectively pose an existential threat to life on our delicate planet - depends on the world coming together," said Al Hashimy.

"Expo 2020 is inviting the most inspiring and ambitious minds from around the world to collaborate on how we can tackle two of our most urgent global challenges for the sake of nature and humanity," she added.
