People worldwide are rallying behind the idea that collective action & collaboration can fix the climate crisis. Cities, by & large, have been leading the charge enabling activism, innovation, decarbonization & adaptation. At URBAN-X, we have been working with five new startups this year that aim to make cities more livable & equitable while massively reducing greenhouse gas emissions with effective & scalable solutions.
Please join us for a night in celebration of this year's success stories in climate entrepreneurship & to learn from behavioral scientist Dr. Sweta Chakraborty how we can continue to tackle the biggest challenge of our times.
In partnership with Newlab.
