TRANSITION_FORUM_2021_SITE_1920x1080

Humanity is entering a decisive decade in the face of climate challenge. The fight for the protection of the soil and biodiversity as well as for the decarbonization of lifestyles, production, consumption and travel models, constitutes a historical responsibility for our generation. In this context, it is necessary to collectively implement rapid and unprecedented transformations.

Public-private collaboration is essential to build new economic models compatible with the ecological transition, to support

 the development of territories and solutions for the protection of the environment.

Launched in 2018 by Aqua Asset Management and its CEO Lionel Le Maux, the TRANSITION FORUM is an exclusive annual gathering of global influencers and change makers in business, government and civil society, investors, startups, top researchers, and scientists who share our vision for a clean and sustainable future.

This 4th edition, Time to co-operate, will be dedicated to the development of

cooperation and new alliances for the ecological transition, in the current context of the European economic recovery plan and its Green Deal.

The 2 days of this international summit will be organized around 4 sequences – mobility, food, housing, production and consumption. An opportunity for participants to discover breakthrough innovations, to establish business partnerships, to exchange and to co-create collectively.
