​S​tartups, Youth Empowerment and Climate Change: ESG in the International Agenda

This event will explore the role of startups, innovation, and disruptive technologies in the context of climate change, serving as a call to governments and the private sector to bring attention to the key role of youth as drivers of sustainable development, as summarized in the ESG agenda.

The session will promote the connection between young entrepreneurs and international leaders from different parts of the Global South, showing that commitment must come from both high-level agents and grassroots movements. It will do so as a mix between pitches, putting a Brazilian startup and an African startup side-by-side to showcase their ideas and solutions, and a panel discussion, with government, private sector and civil society leaders assessing these startups’ approaches towards climate change.

This way, we aim to bring visibility to the potential of South- South Cooperation as a tool for knowledge exchange among less developed countries, and highlight the alignment of governments and private sector with the objectives of Sustainable Development (ODS).

By giving startups a privileged space in the international agenda, authorities will sense the importance of directing policies and investment towards youth empowerment, catalysing innovative solutions for climate change in the long-run.

Translink’s Transformative Journey to Decarbonise Public Transport in Northern Ireland

Translink is leading the transport transformation in Northern Ireland, aiming to operate a net zero emissions fleet by 2040 and creating advanced services and networks to be your first choice for travel today, for tomorrow.

This event will give an account of Translink’s actions to revolutionise and decarbonise NI’s public transport system, transitioning to renewable energy technologies and accelerating net zero emissions across their bus and train fleet and wider business by 2040.

Showcasing a compelling innovative case study and panel discussion on the ground-breaking work to deliver the first hydrogen double decker fleet and the first hydrogen refuelling station on the island of Ireland alongside next steps with 100 new zero emission (electric / hydrogen) buses due to be in service next Spring.

Panellists will also share their views on how collaboration has ignited and fuelled ambitious energy solutions to create zero emission public transport coupled with how we need to change attitudes and behaviours towards greater utilization of greener public transport to reduce emissions and free up space in our cities and urban areas for people and active travel, creating cleaner air to breathe for a healthier place to live, work and visit.

Through partnership we can accelerate climate actions within the transport industry and make a bigger impact on our planet for generations to come.

Keynote Speaker: Chris Conway, Group Chief Executive, Translink

Walrus From Space

Gaze down at the Arctic and see walrus, from space!

Join scientists from Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) and British Antarctic Survey (BAS) to discuss the Walrus From Space project and learn how YOU can help them better understand the impacts of the climate crisis on walrus.

The climate crisis has put the Arctic in meltdown, with this polar region warming almost three times faster than the rest of the world. The sea ice walrus depend on is melting beneath them and we need to know more about how their populations are impacted.

WWF and BAS are asking the public to become ‘Walrus Detectives’ and help contribute to conservation science by searching for walrus in the thousands of satellite images taken from space. Over the next 5 years the project aims to carry out the first ever census of the Atlantic and Laptev walrus population using satellite imagery and explore what might happen to walrus in the context of rapid climate change. This will help scientists to better understand the impact of climate change on populations of this iconic species and help safeguard their future.

Our collective actions add up to something powerful, and we want you to be some of the first of the 500,000 people we hope to take part in this project as ‘citizen scientists’ over the next 5 years.

The sessions will begin with a presentation from one or more of the scientists leading the project, displaying imagery of walrus in the Arctic. Followed by a Q&A with the scientists and the opportunity to take part in the project and become a walrus scientist yourself!
