9:15 am: Welcome by Annick Renaud-Coulon, Founder and Chairman of GlobalCCU (France) and team,and introduction of the purpose and objectives of the GlobalCCU Forum by Anil Santhapuri, Skills solutions at FIS Global (India) ) and Kavita Talreja, Sushma Banthia and Bharti Maru from International Association of  Facilitators (IAF), (India) who will introduce objectives and support the conclusions and action plans each day

The role of Corporate Universities/L&D structures in fighting climate change

As fears set in about global warming across the world, demand for climate change education is growing.
The purpose of this panel discussion is not to list all the signs of the collapse of our ecological system on an unimaginable scale, but to debate on the critical role that Corporate Education / Learning & Development must play to concretely promote climate action, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and guide people and Society to adapt to the impacts of a changing climate while centring climate justice and equity.
In addition to what the governments and international organisations are doing, Corporate Universities - given their essence and strategic positioning focused on practical challenges and learning solutions inside and outside their organisation, are strong levers to engage and respond to climate change as a ‘real-world’ problem, even if they cannot save the planet on their own. What must they do? What are they already doing?  Curating and teaching scientific knowledge and reinforcing trust in science? Nurturing strategic thinking? Providing soft skills, such as the ability to address challenging ethical questions and deal with complexity in their ecosystems? Guiding their organisations to virtuous impactful solutions for the planet? Proposing projects to enhance its Corporate Ecological Responsibility towards closer cooperation with external stakeholders? What else?
