In 2015, the Hunt Institute convened the event that would become our first ImpactForum, a local-global collaboration leading up to COP21 in Paris, in partnership with the Embassy of France and 30 other partners, including the City of Dallas, EarthX, Schneider Electric, Air Liquide and Konica Minolta, and World Affairs Council, among others. That first event was designed to raise awareness about the disproportionate impact of climate change on under-resourced groups, the risks it represents for society, and the opportunities for building resilience.
The 2015 event gave birth to a now 2,500-strong interdisciplinary professional community dedicated to climate-smart inclusive economic development, including 99 Hunt Institute Fellows, and became the launching pad for disruptive collaborations and developing innovative solutions.
On April 28, 2023, we will gather again in the Mack Ballroom to celebrate the innovative solutions for a climate-smart inclusive economy that have emerged from this community, harnessing the ingenuity of experts from across disciplines and the wisdom of communities, as we embark on the next phase of this collective effort: scaling impact. Collective action and scaling impact have never been as high a priority as they are today. The growing climate crisis combined with the pandemic, war, and inflation has disproportionally impacted hundreds of millions of vulnerable people. Now is the time to scale those solutions to further realize our goal: a climate-smart inclusive economy.
