‘Resilience Frontiers’ will bring together 100 visionary thinkers and thought leaders for five days of brainstorming inspired by the ‘Futures Literacy Laboratory’ framework developed by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and futur/io’s ‘Moonshot’ approach.
Resilience Frontiers is an interagency effort undertaken by the UNFCCC Secretariat in collaboration with Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), knowledge and innovation community EIT Climate-KIC, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), the Global Water Partnership (GWP), the Green Climate Fund (GCF), UNESCO, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA). The event contributes to the exploration of frontier issues launched by the UN Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB), which include artificial intelligence (AI), biotechnology, cyberspace and peace and security implications of emerging technologies.
Taking place in conjunction with Korea Global Adaptation Week, the event marks the start of a collective intelligence process on how best to respond to the deep societal transformations driven by emerging technologies and new sustainability trends, and maximize our resilience to climate change beyond 2030. It is organized with support from 4CF, futur/io, the gannaca global think tank group, the Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Multiplied, OnePoint5Media and UNESCO.
