Event description

Description

Join us on 27th March 2020 to discover current and future innovative technologies and learn what a low carbon future might look like.

Ten years ago, the idea that we might navigate our streets in helicopter taxis seemed the stuff of science fiction, yet the world's first 'fly and drive car' has recently made its US debut in Miami, Florida.

What other emerging technologies in the field of transport are likely to become commonplace in five years? How will this drive our transition to a low carbon economy?

The transport sector accounts for 20% of the world’s CO2 emissions. Transport is essential for economic growth and is showing no signs of slowing down - so how do we get to where we need to go in a cleaner way?

Join us to discover current and future innovative technologies and learn what a low carbon future might look like.

This is an ideal networking opportunity to meet green businesses, share knowledge and learn about the innovative solutions on offer, and what mistakes to avoid when trying to transition to a low carbon economy. Delegates will also hear from leading experts in the transport sector and have the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions.Clean Growth UK catalyses clean and green innovation through access to university expertise and facilities and commercialisation and investment support.


Confirmed Speakers:

Daisy Narayanan, Director of Urbanism at Sustrans – a non-profit organisation who create places that are walkable and cycle-friendly by working with decision-makers to create policies that make walking and cycling a more attractive choice, and support people in their communities, to have the opportunity and ability to walk and cycle.

Daisy is on the Board of Architecture & Design Scotland and a member of the Edinburgh Climate Commission. She was on the Active Travel Task Force set up by the Minister for Transport and the Islands and will join the Scottish Transport Awards judging panel from 2020.
