People worldwide are rallying behind the idea that collective action and collaboration can fix the climate crisis. Cities, by and large, have been leading the charge enabling activism, innovation, decarbonization and adaptation. At URBAN-X, we have been working with five new startups this year that aim to make cities more livable and equitable while massively reducing greenhouse gas emissions with effective and scalable solutions.
Please join us for a night in celebration of this year’s success stories in climate entrepreneurship and to learn from behavioral scientist Dr. Sweta Chakraborty how we can continue to tackle the biggest challenge of our times.
In partnership with Newlab.
