Long-view leadership on the climate crisis

As current holder of the G20 presidency, and COP30 and BRICS+ presidencies in 2025, Brazil has an extraordinary opportunity to demonstrate urgently needed leadership on the global stage.

In a wide-ranging discussion Elders and expert guests will consider the challenges and opportunities facing President Lula and his administration, assess the state of multilateral climate leadership and reflect on how Brazil’s civil society and young people can contribute to the global response to the climate and nature crisis.
