Innovating for a Greener Future


Climate change is humanity's greatest threat yet, in the face of such challenge, creativity abounds. From clothes that grow with your child, to revolutionary waterless toilets, join graduates of Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art to hear how they have developed innovative solutions to help build a greener, more sustainable world.

Our speakers will discuss how engineering, science and design can work together to creatively approach the challenge of climate change, reduce water waste and microplastics in the ocean. But can innovations alone set us on a different course? Is it too early to feel optimistic for the future? We’ll explore the whole-system approach required for real change, including the power of storytelling.
