Dear Future Ready Now co-design Lab guests,
It is with much regret that we are forced to move the dates of our work session to September 19-22, 2015.
All of us, organizers, conveners, co-founders and guests alike have worked hard and adjusted our schedules to be able to join forces in Milan and be part of this important work session. World Expo organizers have been a backbone of the effort, working behind the scenes to support the execution of this program, providing access to the public event, key in raising awareness and positioning our session, and also facilitating the venue and some funding to make it happen. Recent developments and conflicting high level events with World Expo made it necessary to reschedule their public event of June 22, and therefore their support of our associated June program as well.
Agri Investor reported on the Lab event we have planned in Milan to start discussions around a $1 billion grassland restoration fund. The wider aim of the project Future Ready Now is to be working on the restoration of 1 billion hectares of degraded grasslands globally by 2025. This incubation stage of a project will attract high-profile celebrities to a launch gala event on Sep 19 (date changed) followed by three days of meetings of the so-called Investors Co-design Lab.
