The Summit is aimed at raising awareness, foster multidisciplinary collaboration, address global challenges with local solutions and champion social equity.

According to New Telegraph of London report, the organiser and founder of Clean Cyclers, Canon Otto, said the programme is for inclusivity to prioritise climate action and environmental stewardship and identify policy pathways for sustainable development.

Otto said the summit would serve as a platform for leading visionaries, experts, innovators and change makers in various global corporations, organisations and government agencies to brainstorm and strategize on the necessary adoption of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

He maintained that the theme is a clarion call to action, adding that it embodies “the assertion that our current trajectory of resource consumption and environmental degradation is unsustainable.”

The organiser further noted that the summit will feature a panel session, where issues bordering on the urgency of climate action, circular economy, renewable energy revolution, sustainable cities, biodiversity conservation, green finance, sustainable agriculture and climate justice will be deliberated.

The summit, the group disclosed, "will also honour and celebrate companies, governments, organisations and individuals that are taking practical scenarios in exemplifying and fortifying their commitment to sustainability, encompassing both the realization and actualisation of short-term objectives and long-term goals.

“The concept of sustainability encompasses a wide spectrum of practices, policies and innovations aimed at mitigating climate change, con-serving biodiversity, protecting natural resources and promoting social equity,” the organiser stated.
