Using specific examples, she pointed to the urgency of the climate crisis and the need for specific and immediate actions by everyone concerned (public, governments, politicians, etc.) worldwide. She also spoke about a great many solutions that are already out there and of the enormous potential offered by solutions still to be developed.

Energy transition, the future is now - Round table

A round table took place at the end of the conference on 30 September 2019 to understand what role Hager can play and what projects are already under way in this area. Gabrielle Walker exchanged ideas for 30 minutes with experts from Hager (Jean Lasserre, Vice President Corporate Strategy at Hager Group and his teams) and the audience. Renewables, lower energy demand, solar panels, commercial possibilities, energy storage and electric mobility were just some of the subjects discussed.

Live talk on 29 November 2019 - 13:00-14:00

In the words of Van Bo Le-Mentzel: “If all the inhabitants of this world deserve to have their own space, there are currently around 7 billion of us and each person has 40-50 square metres, do you know how much space we need? This Earth is probably too small for all of us.” The population is due to rise to 9.8 billion by 2050. Nearly 70 % of this soaring population – 6.7 billion inhabitants – will be living in urban areas. As a result of this, we need to rethink our way of designing and using our spaces. So then, what will the city of tomorrow look like?
