TOGETAIR 2020 Climate summit

The climate summit this year took place from 22-24 June. At the same time, it became a neutral space for discussion across divisions for many communities. . This was done in order for them to work out their positions and recommendations together to take care of the natural environment.

During the three days of the TOGETAIR Climate Summit in Warsaw’s Praga Koneser Centre 11 thematic debates were held. There were also a number of speeches and industry lectures. In addition, there were three press boxes, during which journalists commented and summarised the conclusions that the panellists worked out during the discussion.
