No one can fight climate change alone. That is why the Climate Challenge Cup is celebrating civic research partnerships in the UK and US, where organisations are working collaboratively to tackle climate change.
This international competition is delivered by the research organisation, social investor and community practitioner, The Young Foundation, in the UK, and by MetroLab Network, a civic research and innovation collaborative, in the US.
We are delighted to invite you to an evening of inspiration, networking, and celebration at COP26.
Join us to discuss climate action and hear about innovative and scalable projects that are helping communities become more resilient to the effects of climate change, from wildfires to extreme flooding. You’ll also hear from partnerships helping cities achieve their net zero targets.
The event will culminate in an award ceremony, with an expert panel of judges including:
Dr. Emily Reichert, CEO of Greentown Labs
Daze Aghaji, Young UK Climate Justice Activist
Nicola Yates OBE, CEO of the Connected Places Catapult
Dr Atyia Martin, CEO and Founder of All Aces, Inc
Professor Alex Halliday, Director of the Earth Institute and Founding Dean of the Columbia Climate School
The Climate Challenge Cup is supported by the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with grant funding, and by the City of Glasgow, as well as the UK’s Science and Innovation Network, Innovate UK, The University of Glasgow and Vertigo Ventures.
