The P4G Copenhagen Summit is happening this week, and FFW is proud to have been involved in the process of making this event possible.

On October 19 and 20, the Danish Prime Minister will host a summit where over 500 government, business, and civil society leaders will discuss how to implement and accelerate sustainability initiatives. This is an amazing event for advancing the future of sustainable cities, and will be attended by a number of presidents, prime ministers, and CEOs working to solve our global climate crisis.

The P4G initiative encourages collaboration, and is focused on "becoming the world’s leading forum for developing concrete public-private partnerships at scale to deliver on the SDGs and the Paris Climate Agreement.” The key to any collaborative initiative is a strong platform, and it has been an honor to help P4G design a digital solution to encourage international cooperation on such a pressing issue.

In the spirit of global collaboration, FFW teams from several different countries worked together on this project. As a Danish-sponsored initiative of the World Resources Institute, this was a great opportunity for our Danish, European, and American teams to work together to build an exciting new platform. Our designers worked across timezones to craft the entirety of the visual aesthetics for the site, and our technological specialists brought those designs to light and integrated them with all the innovative tools that the P4G initiative needs in order for its members to thrive.

This is the latest conservation initiative we’re proud to have helped with. The FFW global team has served a number of mission-based organizations dedicated to economic improvement, conservation, international collaboration, and global health and welfare. Building collaborative platforms that allow nonprofits and mission-based organizations to better effect change is one of our favorite things to do, and our team has a deep bench of experience and expertise focused on serving the unique needs of these organizations.
