June 4th, 2012 at The Carlsberg Academy, Copenhagen
On June 4th 2012, Green Growth Leaders and Sustainia will be hosting “Take Lead – the Road to Sustainia”. Here we will be launching two brand new publications each highlighting the possibilities and advantages of sustainable economic growth.
Take Lead 2012 will take place in Copenhagen at The Carlsberg Academy, former home of the Danish Nobel Laureate Niels Bohr. Here Mr. Bohr used to host symposiums inviting other Nobel laureates do discuss art, politics and the state of the world.
In his spirit, Take Lead 2012 will provide an authentic inspiring environment for debates, discussions and knowledge sharing on green growth and sustainable economic development.
On the day Green Growth Leaders will be gathering experts and decision makers from all over the world covering everything from academia, public and private leaders and pioneers within various sustainability movements.
The discussions on the day will evolve around how to build a sustainable society fostering economic growth, and sustainable urban planning in the future world metropolis.

Sustainia Guide to Copenhagen 2025 – The Sustainia Guide to Copenhagen 2025 develops and distributes a storytelling model for cities that demonstrate how green growth goes beyond energy and clean-tech and creates sustainable living which benefits the individual citizen in terms of health, safety, and quality of life.
Sustainia Index - The Sustainia Index will propose a set of quantitative indicators for the green economy, and on this basis rank nations according to their performance in all three dimensions of sustainability: Economic, social and environmental. It will track the global trend, and in addition deliver qualitative criteria for business and cities that advance the green economy.
