Sooner Than You Think

Bloomberg’s Sooner Than You Think technology summit will return to Singapore to focus on the new technologies and policies that could save the world from climate disaster.

Change is coming.
Sooner than you think.

The world now faces at least three degrees Celsius of global heating by the end of the century – that is double the Paris Agreement’s long-term goal of limiting the increase in global average temperature to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

Despite the dire signals, several world leaders stress that it is not too late to curb greenhouse-gas emissions and keep the world from warming to catastrophic temperatures. Yes, climate change is a serious problem, but there are solutions.

Bloomberg’s Sooner Than You Think technology summit will return to Singapore to focus on the new technologies and policies that could save the world from climate disaster. With the low-lying island nation facing an existential threat from the effects of climate change, the summit will identify the technologies, investments and policies that will protect Singapore, and the world, from rising sea levels, hotter temperatures and more intense rainfall.
