2030 Climate Vision: EU's Path to Carbon Neutrality

Insights from sociologist Michel Bauwens: Merging P2P, Commons, and AI for Sustainable Change and a Greener Future.  

In pursuit of the EU's 2030 climate neutrality goal, a radical economic transformation is essential. What new business methods can we explore? Which global initiatives offer inspiration for Europe?

Join us at The Merode for an enlightening session with Michel Bauwens. He'll delve into how Peer-to-Peer (P2P) production, Commons dynamics and AI can collaboratively drive us towards climate neutrality. 

This event, tailored for innovators and leaders, will focus on pioneering ideas and their real-world applications for a sustainable economic shift. 

Circular Economy experts from the Brussels Circulab Community will also showcase their work in reshaping business models and optimizing products and services.

Don't miss this chance to be part of a movement reshaping business and sustainability.

This conference is a joint effort with Circulab Community, Le Germoir des Fontaines, Corporate ReGeneration, PhiloMa, and TheMerode.
