Discover why cities have an increased focus on sustainable solutions, and how this fosters innovative breakthroughs.
Our expert panellists will delve into the critical role that collaboration, communication, and community-building play in accelerating the response to climate change in cities.
The panel will also examine the vital role that ecosystem builders can play in facilitating communities of interest and driving outcomes in climate tech. Drawing on lessons from the GreenTech Alliance and Berlin, we'll explore the best practices for advancing climate innovation through community-building and collaboration and how we can take those lessons and apply them in Australia.
Finally, we'll explore how AI can enable individuals and businesses to better engage their community and make better choices around their choice of community, collaborators, supply chain partners, talent, finance, and customers.
