The Cooler Earth 2020: Recovery, Resilience, Responsibility.

Humanity is at a crossroads. With the unprecedented global climate emergency, we are seeing tipping points with social and environmental upheaval in countries worldwide. The conversation around social inequalities and injustice has risen to the fore. The unprecedented pandemic has put us through a stress test of a world impacted by various environmental and social risks. We can neither live in denial nor ignore the need for urgent action. The new normal is all about Recovery, Resilience, and Responsibility. Only sustainable businesses and communities can emerge stronger and better prepared for future challenges.

Join CIMB and its knowledge partners, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Impacto, and Think City at The Cooler Earth 2020. The Cooler Earth is our mission to convene global citizens, experts and important stakeholders to deliberate on what you can do today as an individual and as a business to shape a more sustainable tomorrow.

The Cooler Earth is a mission

The Cooler Earth is our mission to convene global citizens, experts and important stakeholders, to deliberate on what you can do today as an individual and as a business to shape a more sustainable tomorrow. We invite individuals, businesses, civil society and policy-makers from across ASEAN to join in the conversation by participating in interactive and insightful events on various sustainability themes.

Our goal is also to encourage participants to embrace sustainability and take action towards shaping a kinder society and a less sweltering planet (hence "Cooler").
