SUBJECT

Today we are dealing with the biggest challenges humanity has ever faced. Climate change causes the deaths of over 500.000 people annually, overpopulation is the main reason for the starvation of more than 10% of the world’s population, and plastic waste is killing over 1
million birds each year.

But there is hope!

Many companies, entrepreneurs, innovators, startups, and organizations around the world are already providing solutions to these problems. Sustainable products are being developed, and green initiatives are created for our daily lives.
They don’t have one thing, however: the spotlights they deserve. We are delighted to present to you the Planetiers World Gathering, the event that gives visibility to the best solutions in the world for the Sustainable Development Goals.

Planetiers World Gathering allows change-makers to publicly present what they are doing and generates opportunities to promote their solutions. It’s time to help everyone work for a better future. It will take place from April 23rd to 25th, 2020, at the Altice Arena in Lisbon.

This event will serve as a place to share, learn, teach, inspire, and build bridges for the sustainability of our planet and society. Entities should compete with their projects by selecting one of the SDGs to which their project responds effectively, and we will set the stage for the best in the country and the world.

LOCAL

The contest is open to all entities of the 6 categories, inside and outside the country, in any location of the planet.

ii) The “STARTUP GENERATION” space will be a showcase for the best projects and start-ups with a positive impact on the sustainability of our planet and society. The area will be organized according to the various Sustainable Development Goals, providing an intuitive and immersive experience for visitors. It will be the right place to stay abreast of sustainable innovation, find customers, investors or even future partners.

iii) The “SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES” space will be a space for publicizing groups of people who fight daily for the sustainability of their communities, concrete actions implemented by cities and municipalities and workshops where visitors can learn about circular economy, materials reuse, development of healthy habits, implement small changes in their daily lives and many other experiences to improve their impact on the environment and the community.
