ADVISORY: WRI’s Stories to Watch 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 20, 2019)–Join us for the World Resources Institute's Stories to Watch 2020 on Thursday, January 9 at 9:00 a.m. at WRI’s D.C. office.

Dr. Andrew Steer, president & CEO, will share insights on major moments and key players in the year ahead that will shape global trends in the economy, climate, environment, politics and more.

The past year saw the rise of youth activists and other voices calling for climate action, and growing pressure on governments and businesses to respond. Yet, progress to confront the crisis remains slow. As we embark on a new decade, events in the coming year will determine whether the world can get on track to tackle climate change and other sustainability issues. How will global geopolitics help or hinder progress in 2020? Which countries will strengthen their climate commitments? Will more businesses prioritize sustainability? How will developments in finance and technology advance these efforts?

Now in its 17th year, Stories to Watch has become a go-to event for thought leaders, policymakers, business executives, and the media in Washington D.C. and around the world.
