The Class

This class will go over the Global Stocktake, what it is and what its key findings are, followed by a brief demonstration of the Systems Change Lab platform, which can help show specifically where climate action stands today and where further action is needed. Our goal through this classroom is to help increase participants understanding of the Global Stocktake process and transformations required to achieve our 2030 and 2050 targets at the pace and scale needed.
