Event description

Description

This is the inaugural event of Fast Forward 2030 - Launched by Professor Henrietta Moore (UCL Institute for Global Prosperity) and Arthur Kay (CEO, bio-bean), Fast Forward 2030 is a network and collaborative platform for businesses aiming to incorporate the SDGs into their business models.

As global problems evolve, so does the type of business that emerges to meet these challenges. The 21st century poses the completely unprecedented twin challenges of a population explosion to 10 billion people by 2050, and the need for economies to decarbonise in order to avoid climate crisis. In this context, what does a 21st century business look like?

The dual challenge of a resource strain and the threat of climate crisis means an unprecedented need to redefine our relationship to the natural world, and the way we use resources. Increasingly, entrepreneurs, and citizens understand that a new approach to business is necessary. With forward-thinking entrepreneurs empowered and inspired, cities can transition from being the consumers of goods and producers of waste, to vibrant hubs of sustainable, circular economic activity.

Whether that’s turning coffee waste into energy, converting disused underground space into a source of fresh food, or creating smart food packages to cut food waste, small businesses are pioneering the shift.
