- Cleantech Futures: Exploring a decade of cleantech innovation
Join Cambridge Cleantech’s annual conference as we celebrate our tenth anniversary and the contributions of cleantech innovators from Cambridge and around the globe. The Cambridge Cleantech conference is an opportunity to meet and network with the changemakers of the cleantech world, and to learn from the very best in the industry.
When we started Cambridge Cleantech in 2011, climate change was nowhere as prominent in the agenda as it is today. In the last decade, we have seen climate tech move to the forefront of solutions needed to combat the climate crisis. Governments across the world, including the UK, have adopted green growth as the key goal for the next decade. Our conference Cleantech Futures: Exploring a decade of cleantech innovation looks at how far we have come and what still needs to be done in the coming decade to ensure we achieve the 1.5C target.
As the world is geared up to COP 26, let’s hear from politicians, business leaders and senior academics in the cleantech sector working for climate action.
