P4G Seoul Summit 2021

P4G aims to bring together government, business, and civil society organisations to develop innovative and concrete public-private partnerships at scale to accelerate the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. After the launch in Copenhagen in 2018, the P4G Summit arrives in Seoul this May.

Meet and network among global leaders and innovators seeking breakthrough solutions for green sustainable growth. Develop partnerships with stakeholders from all around the world in order to advance solutions that help meet humanity’s greatest needs in five areas: food and agriculture, water, energy, cities and circular economy.

The P4G event will be held from the 30-31 May and will include multiple sessions surrounding food and agriculture. The goal is to develop partnerships while enhancing effective cooperation in the agriculture and food sector, by facilitating discussions and lay the foundation for the development of new and innovative public-private partnerships. It is essential to ensure long-term food security and improve nutrition by producing and supplying quality food for everyone while enhancing the productivity and profitability of farmers and adopting and spreading environmentally-friendly production, supply and consumption systems.

Denmark is ready for the P4G Summit in Seoul

Leading up the main event on 30-31 May, a week of engaging talks and discussions is set to spur action and new partnerships.

Denmark invites you to join the dialogue by participating in Danish-led side events:
