About this Event
The Taylor Vinters Future Focus Series: Fresh thoughts on environment and innovation
Whenever the issue of our future relationship with the planet’s environment is raised, the responses are often well-meaning but cover the same old ground. Wind turbines, less plastic packaging, carbon off-setting for example. They may be part of the answer, but as we edge closer to the point of no return, the world urgently needs fresh ideas with greater impact.
Led by OG Founder Member, Taylor Vinters law firm, our Future Focus series highlights the innovative thinking and business practices that will tackle the world’s greatest challenges. In our first series of three virtual breakfasts, we will be discussing how purpose-led businesses can make a tangible impact in eco-innovation.
A variety of viewpoints
The guest speakers at these breakfast events will feature industry experts, academics, business owners and journalists. They’ll confront the hard facts, examine new ideas and debate which are viable and likely to gain support from businesses and the public.
Each virtual breakfast will include an open Q&A session for you to join in the discussion and idea sharing, with opportunities to network.
The discussion themes:
• 28 April 2021 – Uncomfortable truths and eco-innovation
• 12 May 2021 – How nature can provide solutions
• 26 May 2021 – Practical steps for mitigation
Uncomfortable Truths and Eco-Innovation
Hear from Prof Bob Montgomery, Professor of Zoology, co-founder of the world’s first Conservation Venture Studio with a mission to accelerate innovative solutions addressing the world’s most pressing environmental problems, and Chris Goodall, advocate and communicator about the low carbon energy transition and author of ‘What we need to do now’.
Join us at 7.45 for coffee and networking before the presentations and Q&A 8-9am, followed by more networking until 9.30.
