October 4 and 5: ClimateTech at MIT Media Lab
Hosted by MIT Technology Review, in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab City Science group
Innovations for a sustainable future
ClimateTech convenes the leaders funding, creating, and deploying climate technologies to accelerate the transition to a green economy. New public policies backed by new public funding are fueling innovations, but the clock is figuratively, and literally, burning. We must identify, innovate, and quickly scale the solutions that will have the greatest impact on achieving net-zero objectives before it's too late.
The event will feature a chapter curated by MIT City Science which will include input and insight from the City Science Network Directors. Themes will include: rapid urbanization, innovation in informality, new housing, mobility and community models, innovation in a biosphere, and desert tech.
Electrification, AI, fusion, carbon capture, city level solutions, and radical adaptations are all on the agenda as we explore the innovations that will bring us to a sustainable future, now.
