Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative (PCAI), successfully participated at the 2017 Climate Change Conference that took place in Athens on July 4, with Angelo Plessas' digital installation "EverythingHappensAsItShould.com".
PCAI participated at Climate Change Conference after receiving an invitation by Boussias Communications, an independent business publishing and information company. The conference was organized by weekly digital Newsletter Plant.
Distinguished foreign and Greek speakers, experts and practitioners from a wide range of businesses, as well as representatives of ministries, energy management bodies, financial institutions and consultancy firms in Greece and abroad, presented specific opportunities and threats. The conference acted as an information and dialogue platform on the impact of climate change policies on businesses in all sectors.
The agenda of the conference was structured in two axes. The first analyzed the framework for climate change and carbon dioxide markets. After the introduction, definitions and alternative technology solutions were presented. Then, emphasis was placed on legislation, regulations and other institutional tools on the greenhouse effect. Finally, a special presentation on the «coal» markets took place. The second pillar highlighted the impact of climate change policies on specific sectors, distinguishing between direct impacts (employment, investment, environment), indirect (peer pressure but also through funding to the extent that it is affected by these policies) and intangible / soft, that is through corporate social responsibility and business image.
