Set for January 21-24, the invite-only meeting will gather the world’s most influential government officials, business executives, policymakers and other thought leaders.

Recognized as the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation, the World Economic Forum (WEF) is committed to bringing together people from all backgrounds who have the passion and drive to influence positive change around the world. Independent and impartial, the Forum engages the foremost political, business and other leaders of society in important conversations on building a more inclusive and sustainable future.

Dr. Lampe-Onnerud – the only two-time Technology Pioneer and chair of the Forum’s Global Future Council on Energy Technologies – will moderate “Energy 2030: Accelerating Clean Energy and Innovation.” Taking place on Wednesday, January 22 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. CET, the panel will explore advancements in clean energy technologies and how best to facilitate an even faster adoption in order to expedite the world’s transition from fossil fuels. Additionally, Dr. Lampe-Onnerud will facilitate a session about how proven policies and practices to combat air pollution can be scaled at the city, national and global levels, thus benefitting the health of populations and the planet.

“Our world is already in the midst of climate change, but we’re also in a position to take decisive actions that can slow down some of that change, so it’s not catastrophic,” said Dr. Lampe-Onnerud. “It’s incumbent upon all of us to capitalize on that opportunity and do something very quickly. Innovative technologies are a cornerstone in making sustainable changes for the future of our world. Davos provides a vital platform for fueling transformative conversations among many of the world’s boldest, brightest and most influential thinkers and doers. By working together, we can make a positive, lasting global impact.”
