A journey to COP23!

This is exactly what Jun Kume, Cathy Masson, Nadia Hefer and Hernando Zertuche did.

“We are looking forward to share our experience and insights with our community.  We decided to provide our feed-back in the format of a “blog series”.  Each week, a new chapter will be posted.  Each of us will focus on our favourites themes and moments during the event, in a very personalised way.”

Cathy chose to talk about cities, Nadia will focus on data innovation and Hernando will share moments about the Hyperloop project and Lewis Pugh’s oceans advocacy story.  Jun will discuss sustainable innovation in the car industry, the Hydrogen Council and about his roundtable discussion on the role of public and private organizations.

So, see you soon for the first chapter!
