You could be honored as Masdar's guest VIP blogger and win an all-expense-paid trip to Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week in mid-January, 2016. Enter Masdar's Engage blogging contest, and write a response to this prompt: Describe how government and businesses can cooperate to build a sustainable economy.
Businesses look for governments to implement policies that can provide a framework and guarantee economic stability, so that the private sector can plan for the long term.
The winning entry will clearly describe how government and business can cooperate in order to allow current and future solutions for climate change to scale and succeed, and therefore, play a significant role in limiting the increase in global temperatures to 2 degrees Celsius by 2030.
Guidelines to writing the winning post:
The scientific community in general believes that increases in global temperatures must be limited to 2 degrees Celsius in order to mitigate the risks that could result from climate change. While governments and international organizations have long been at the vanguard of finding solutions for climate change, recent trends have shown that the global business community has become more vocal and proactive about the need to shift toward a sustainable economy by 2030.
Masdar’s 2016 blogging contest is all about how business can cooperate with government on addressing climate change and help society transition to a sustainable economy within the next 15 years.
