Join us in Christchurch for 'Disrupting Climate Change', as part of TechWeek 2017!
Do you consider yourself an entrepreneur, a change-maker, or someone who believes that when it comes to climate change, we can do better?
If so, this event is for you! Our aim is to foster conversation about how technology can be applied to better New Zealand’s response to the challenge of climate change. We'll be focusing on three key sectors: electricity, agriculture and transport.
There are two parts to the event:
Inform | Expert speakers will present on aspects such as the technology available to combat climate change and the opportunities and barriers within each sector
Engage| A small group session where participants select a technological opportunity and explore approaches to make it happen. Approaches could include a start-up, a community project, or a campaign.
Stay tuned - more details, including speakers, will be announced soon!
Disrupting Climate Change is hosted by Generation Zero,a youth-led, nationwide organisation with a vision to see New Zealand carbon neutral by 2050. We engage with local and central government by advocating for policies and action that will see New Zealand on track to meeting this goal. To find out more, see the links below.
