The meeting focused on the urgent need to address climate change and resource use inefficiency, emphasizing the importance of cooperation, sharing, and collective responsibility in solving global socio-ecological problems.

Participants discussed the limitations of current policies and the necessity of integrating circular economy principles, demand-side solutions, and nature-based solutions into climate action to achieve sustainable resource use and enhance human well-being.

The conversation also highlighted the need for systemic change, including institutional governance, financial incentives, and equitable resource distribution, to ensure a fair and green future.
