The challenge of climate change presents many opportunities for new sustainable ventures. Entrepreneurs working in this space are able to creatively develop innovative solutions that have environmental, social and economic benefits, yet like all entrepreneurial ventures it is not with out risks. At this Sustainable Cities Round Table we will showcase examples of proactive entrepreneurs who have taken this step and bravely gone where no mainstream business or entrepreneur has gone before!

The evening will feature a series of short presentations, musical interludes, networking opportunities and more… Speakers booked so far include Nick Savaidis, Etiko Fair Trade, Mitch O’Sullivan, Waterwall Solutions, and Alexi Lynch, Australia Manager of Cities for Climate Protection, ICLEI and co-founder of the Environmental Jobs Network.

The Sustainable Cities Round Tables are a regular series of events that showcase local environmental initiatives and encourage networking for people working in urban sustainability issues across the government, academic, industry and community sectors.
