Dettol Hygiene Quest Live

At COP26 Dettol will be bringing to life Dettol Hygiene Quest – their brand-new hygiene programme for primary schools. Dettol Hygiene Quest has been created in collaboration with medical experts, curriculum designers and gamification specialists to build long lasting hygiene habits amongst children aged 6-9.

Dettol Hygiene Quest Live will contain a mix of drama entertainment, film and high-profile speakers. The live show will:
● Allow Dettol to showcase the Dettol Hygiene Quest programme
● Demonstrate how Dettol are taking the lead in equipping young people with the skills to combat germ transmission and improve health.

● Presentations (inc. film and PowerPoint)
● Guest speakers: Kris Licht (Reckitt exec leadership), Humza Yousaf (MSP)
● Drama-based scenarios and kinaesthetic activities (inc. props, sound & lighting)

Dettol Hygiene Quest Live will complement the roll out of the Dettol Hygiene Quest resources and workshops which will be delivered to ten Glasgow primary schools across the duration of COP26


Technology and Data Are Key to Save the Environment

Can technology and data fight climate change? The answer is an unequivocal YES! They must. Come experience how artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), data analytics, cloud, 5G and IoT are being used to save the rainforests, protect the Great Barrier Reef, and drastically reduce the U.K.’s carbon footprint.

Every two seconds, an area of rainforests the size of a football field is destroyed. Deforestation accounts for 10% of all carbon emissions, making it a massive contributor to global warming, with up to 90% of deforestation attributed to illegal logging. Come see how Rainforest Connection and Hitachi are using AI and ML to analyze eco-acoustic data to predict and prevent illegal logging in rainforests.

The Great Barrier Reef in Australia is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and it is one of the world’s most biologically diverse ecosystems. Come hear how a local banana farmer from North Queensland is using data-driven IoT technology from Hitachi to build a sustainable farming operation, so they can do their part to preserve this natural wonder.

Modern transport systems have made our global natural wonders accessible to so many. But, as one of the biggest contributors to climate change emissions, the transport sector now needs to decarbonise to protect the natural world it has made so accessible. Learn how we are using data and technology to help the mass transport transformation towards electric vehicles, and supporting a sustainable world for all.

Hydro: Powering a Net Zero Future

SSE will premiere Hydro: Powering a Net Zero Future, a film celebrating the rich heritage of hydro power and looking ahead to its vital role in combating climate change. The film will look at the transformative social and economic impact hydro power had on the north of Scotland following WW2, the continued role it plays and the potential for this almost 80-year-old technology to support a decarbonised electricity grid.  Following the film’s premiere there will be a panel event with UK and international experts discussing hydro’s role in reducing carbon emissions.


Changing Consumer Behaviour

Meaningful action on climate change will only be achieved by the positive choices we choose to make – as businesses, governments, or individuals. Without changing our everyday actions, we will not be able to reduce scope 3 emissions.

This panel will draw on evidence – from academia and consumer insights – to discuss how companies, brands and policymakers can harness behavioural science to influence consumers to go greener and make more sustainable choices.


Let’s Talk Energy – ScottishPower Renewables

Young people from across Scotland are invited to make their voices heard at a live discussion event. They will work together to create their own Net Zero Energy Policy for Scotland for 2045. Policy actions selected will be considered for use in future COP engagement by ScottishPower Renewables.

Following a programme of classroom learning to build knowledge on the topic, secondary students will gather in the Green Zone to hear from renewable energy professionals, share their ideas and select their own policy actions.

This unmissable event will be facilitated by Glasgow Science Centre’s learning team and strengthened by guest and energy sector expert panellists including:
