ADVISORY: WRI’s Stories to Watch 2019

WASHINGTON—Join us for World Resources Institute's Stories to Watch 2019 on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. at WRI’s D.C. office.

Dr. Andrew Steer, president & CEO, will share insights on emerging trends in the economy, politics, environment and international development that will shape the world in the coming year.

After a year marked by stark geopolitical shifts and a growing awareness of climate impacts, WRI will look at what to expect in the coming year. What governments will emerge as leaders on sustainability and climate action? Who will hold back action? How will increasing climate impacts affect policy and business decisions? What technology and innovation trends will impact sustainability? How will the U.S. Congress, state and local actors respond to the re-emergence of climate as a political issue?

Now in its 16th year, Stories to Watch has become a go-to event for media, policymakers, business executives and thought leaders.

Watch the livestream, down powerpoint slides, and see photos and video at https://www.wri.org/events/2019/01/stories-watch-2019.

The event will include breakfast and networking opportunities.
