An introduction to CDKN
On Thursday, 9th September, CDKN brought together key UK representatives from academia, the government, NGOs and the private sector to attend a meeting and lunch to present CDKN’s work and strategy to-date. Hosted by Simon Maxwell, CDKN’s Chair, the meeting was CDKN’s first public event since our launch.
Attending were members from all of CDKN’s alliance organisations including Global Heads, two of our Regional Heads, Yolanda Kakabadse and Stefan Raubenheimer, as well as other representatives from our regional offices. The meeting opened with Simon giving a short presentation on CDKN from a global and regional perspective, and outlining the proposed five-year plan. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session, and participants contributed to a very open and productive discussion on the key challenges and opportunities surrounding climate compatible development.
