About the event
Green Urbanics Business Livecast Series is designed to bring together demanding stakeholders from smart cities and municipalities, state, agricultural and educational institutions, corporates and impact investors looking to go greener with groundbreaking bio-inspired and cleantech innovators from around the world ready to provide tools for a healthier environment, applicable nature-based solutions and ecosystem services for the built environment.
There's a growing urban population in need of every square inch of green, glimpse of nature, savings of GHG emissions and being connected to wildlife to help reduce the effects of extreme weather events, heat islands, pollution, climate change and biodiversity loss.
Green Urbanics Business Livecast Series aims at showcasing cities leading the green recovery revolution globally, responsible corporates with best practice net-zero pledges and climate-friendly programs getting the worldwide recognition they deserve. We intend to introduce some of the most innovative urban nature-based, bio-inspired, eco-friendly and cleantech business solutions designed to help regenerate a degrading planet.

Their presentations will be followed by pitches from green business nature-based solution providers, a live Q&A session and an optional hour of 1-on-1 networking with the speakers.
