We welcome all passionate individuals who are concerned about climate change and are motivated to build climate solutions to reverse the crisis. The fight against climate change is daunting, and many could end up feeling lonely and helpless. We are here to build a support system and a safe space. You are not alone. Our climate cafe is a dedicated space where entrepreneurs, scientists, technologists and activists can come together to foster collaborations, and co-create game-changing startups/projects.
“We need a green planet but the world is on red alert. We are at the verge of the abyss. We must make sure the next step is in the right direction. Leaders everywhere must take action. First by building a global coalition for net zero emissions by 2050 in every country, every region, every city, every company, and every industry.”
António Guterres, UN Secretary-General
What to expect
Guests to the climate cafe can expect to engage in discussions to help ideate projects, build startups or find collaboration opportunities. The session will be hosted by the various Audacity/Permacolony startups/projects. Free drinks will be provided.
