NEW DELHI: National Workshop Programme under the GREEN-WIN project is being organized by the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Society for Technology and Action for Rural Advancement (TARA) to develop a national collaboration to apply a solution-oriented approach targeted at increasing our understanding of the links between climate action and sustainability.

Workshop-on-Renewable-EnergyWorkshop on Renewable Energy“The GREEN-WIN project (Green growth and win-win solutions for sustainable climate action), funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Programme, aims to identify, develop and critically assess the potential of win-win strategies for addressing the climate problem. Under win-win strategies we understand strategies that bring short-term economic benefits to private actors or society as a whole, while supporting sustainable forms of climate mitigation and adaptation.”, TARA informed IndiaCSR.

In GREEN-WIN focuses on the potential of green business models and switching economies to green growth pathways.

The national workshop will contribute to overcoming economic, financial and institutional barriers to sustainable climate action at local and international levels through identifying win-win strategies, green business models and enabling environments which support meeting Sustainable Development Goals via green entrepreneurship. More information on the project and the partners involved can be found at http://www.globalclimateforum.org/green-win

Discussing innovative green business models in the light of Sustainable Development Goals.
Developing long-term vision for green ‘energy-livelihood’ nexus.
Exposure visits and Stakeholders connect.
