Wednesday 8th September – Friday 10th September 2021: The Climate Neutrality Forum will bring together leading researchers, policymakers and practitioners working on achieving climate neutrality. The meeting will take place simultaneously at three hubs – Berlin, Milan and Oxford – linked together to create a blended event that is both in-person and virtual in nature.
