“We are tiny humans on the tiny layer of life surrounding a tiny planet lost in the vastness of space. This planet is however a world, our world. It is both our house and our garden. We are discovering the secrets of our family tree and our global identity card, and they are making us recognise our terrestrial motherland at a time when societies scattered across the globe have become interdependent and humanity’s destiny is being played out collectively”-Edgar Morin
Welcome to The Club of Florence, a distinguished gathering place, where exceptional minds converge to shape the future. As a vibrant international Foundation, we bring together an inspiring array of visionaries, global business leaders, financiers, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, academics, scientists, investors, and artists, all unified by the dynamic narrative of 'Renewed Humanism'
Our prestigious annual Renewed Humanism Award recognizes remarkable contributions to UN Sustainable Development Goals, including climate action.
This gala event attracts international leaders and influencers and serves as the epicenter of side events, encouraging active participation from various societal segments. This Award not only recognizes and honors individuals who have initiated pivotal shifts in the economic and social spheres, especially in climate action, but also amplifies our commitment to driving an inclusive, collective, and sustainable future.
Our first recipient of the Club of Florence Award for Renewed Humanism (Climate Action) is Mark Carney, who has made monumental strides in establishing and leading the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ).
The ceremony is an opportunity to connect with influential figures from the global climate action community, making it a momentous occasion in our Club’s history.
We are focused on the Paris Accord Agenda and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and addressing global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change, and environmental degradation.
We are committed to harnessing scientific innovations and the brightest minds to safeguard our precious ecosystems while supporting our communities and cultures. We aim to foster open and constructive debates to help identify innovations and formulate policies that support the harmonious coexistence between humanity and nature. Together, we intend to create a future where both our planet and communities can thrive.
