24 July 2019, SKYCITY Auckland: Venue information
EMBARK is a day of two halves.
The first half of the day is a series of workshops run by Climate Leaders Coalition signatories sharing what they have learnt to help others make faster progress.
The second part of the day will be facilitated sessions to connect attendees with low emission solution providers who can help them to take their next steps.
The aim of EMBARK is that by the end of the day attendees will come away with the building blocks of a great transition plan and will be connected with the people who can help them turn their plan into reality.
