The international P4G climate summit in Seoul is postponed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Korean government has decided to postpone the 2020 P4G Seoul Summit to 2021, after careful deliberation between the Republic of Korea, the P4G Global Hub, and key partners. Due to the evolving global situation around COVID-19, the Korean government and P4G believe this is the safest option.

“We are grateful that the Republic of Korea is still committed to hosting the Summit next year and keeping up the political momentum and leadership that it has shown on climate change and clean energy in recent years and in its response to the coronavirus,” said Ian de Cruz, Global Director of P4G, and continued:

“Together we can make the 2021 Summit a defining global moment that showcases the power of our solution-driven partnerships and leads the conversation on an ambitious climate agenda that also positively responds to the current coronavirus crisis. Let us all find solutions that flatten both curves”

The exact date of the new summit is still being planned. However, the summit is set to take place next year.
