More and more organisations are looking to take action on climate change today but do not yet have a compelling vision and a clear plan about how to respond. The Climate Innovation Programme has been designed with leading University of Cambridge academics and industry experts to help senior executives develop a strategic and business relevant approach to climate change.
The programme is built around key themes including energy technology; adaptation; policy and behaviour; sustainable materials and production; climate risk; and new business models, and includes a climate science visit to the British Antarctic Survey. Over the three days, participants will experiment with new frameworks and tools, strengthen their capacity to innovate and create a portfolio of ideas and solutions. The programme will review innovative approaches on:
The programme curriculum is informed by a low carbon advisory group comprising of University of Cambridge academics and innovators from the private and public sector. The group will provide a unique insight into the best available solutions, including tried and tested technologies and financing instruments, and the next generation of public policy platforms, cross-sector partnerships, products and services that are emerging in response to climate change.
The seminar will host presentations, research and discussions on key areas of interest, supported by climate data, applied frameworks and tools and case studies from the most innovative practice.
The programme will host an annual seminar in Cambridge for up to 30 participants. Participants will spend three days with leading scientists and thinkers and work with peers from some of the world’s most influential organisations to:
Ultimately, participants will leave the seminar with a portfolio of solutions, a strategic approach for climate and a meaningful network focused on action. The seminar will be highly interactive and will challenge participants to think creatively about risks and opportunities and help others explore their own thinking.
