From April 9-12, 2013, The World Bank's Connect4Climate (C4C), a partner of The Climate Group, and Alcantara will co-host the Alcantara Dialogues/Connect4Climate: Re-Think, Re-Design, Re-New – a series of panel discussions on sustainability featuring high-profile innovators from the worlds of design, architecture, fashion, CSR, global advocacy, entertainment, and the arts (full program below), during Milan Design Week (April 9-14, 2013).

As part of the panel discussions, followers of The Climate Group Twitter account will be able to ask anything to the guests via tweets, and have their questions answered live on stage.

The panelists offer unexpected voices on climate change, so the live Twitter Q&A offers you a unique opportunity to get exclusive answers from diverse industry leaders.

As World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim has said, “To deliver bold solutions on climate change, we need to listen to and engage broader and more diverse audiences.” These discussions aim to do just that – by stimulating new conversations with influencers from a wide variety of disciplines and creating a greater understanding of how sustainable design and business practices can impact and change behavior to mitigate climate change.

Take a look at the participants below, and if you have questions for any of them be sure to log on to Twitter at the times below to put forward your question. To increase the chance of your question being answered by the guests live on stage, be sure to include the hashtag #c4cAlcantara.
