Climate Action 2021: Clean Water & Sanitation | In partnership with Cheeky Panda
3rd February 2021 | 11:00 – 12:15
Join Cambridge Cleantech and Oxfordshire Greentech for our first event in the Climate Action 2021 series, in partnership with Cheeky Panda.
Climate Action 2021 is a series of conversations celebrating the work of cleantech innovators in solving the UN Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which we will promote and highlight in the run up to COP 26 in Glasgow in November.
In this quarter we will take on SDG 6: Clean Water & Sanitation.
According to the United Nations, 785 million people remain without basic drinking water services and 2 out of 5 people worldwide do not have access to basic handwashing facilities. Hear from game-changing cleantech entrepreneurs creating solutions to improve access to clean water and reduce water wastage, and find out how innovation can make an impact on global communities.
