31 Jul 23
Ian Welsh and Bea Stevenson
In this week's preview of what's coming up, Innovation Forum's Ian Welsh and Bea Stevenson talk about Earth Overshoot Day – this year on 2nd August – when human's annual natural resource use exceeds Earth's ability to regenerate. They also discuss the first African Women and Children Conference in Ghana this week, which will consider the impact of climate change on women and children, acting as a precursor to the African Climate Summit later in the year.
Plus, Innovation Forum's Catie Ball provides further information on what to expect from the Future of Plastics and Packaging Conference in Amsterdam from 3rd-4th October. Register for the conference for a €400 early-bird discount – the offer expires this Friday, 4th August.
