Climate Leadership in Practice
We face an urgent need for visionary climate leaders. Addressing climate and economic challenges starts with bright innovative minds who have the guts to get out of their comfort zone. During our Climate Innovation Experience, you will be inspired by experts including Bernice Notenboom, Renee Lertzman, Climate Award Winners and Climate Leaders of the Future.
This event presents an opportunity to get tips and tricks on how to become a climate leader, and to meet start-ups, front runners and innovators working to address the climate challenge, all in one day!
We are very proud to announce that EIT Climate-KIC will be hosting the Award Ceremony of the Nederlandse Klimaatcoalitie at our event. The Nederlandse Klimaatcoalitie is the matchmaking platform for entrepreneurs in sustainability. Six great examples of companies who achieve carbon neutral business models will be awarded.
Are you a key influencer in the climate innovation area: business, SME, entrepreneur, policymaker, scientist, student or potential investor? Feel free to join this event and register here! Together we will push our communities and climate innovation forward towards a sustainable future.
