Climate Action 2021: SDG 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities



Climate Action 2021 aims to promote solutions available to achieve a more sustainable world. Join us for a showcase of the cleantech companies contributing to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this time focusing on SDG 11.

We are excited to launch this programme in partnership with our associate founder member, Cheeky Panda, and cannot wait to see you to our events. For the next quarter, we will be highlighting currently available solutions to respond to the challenge of sustainable cities.


In response to the call to build back better in the UK, Cambridge Cleantech launched last September a new Special Interest Group: Sustainable Smart Homes. The success of this interest group only reflects the current need to improve our homes and cities. In order to meet the Government’s 2050 Carbon Zero targets and the 11th UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, we need to drastically reduce the carbon emissions produced by our homes and cities.


Currently, innovative SMEs are working hard to improve our habitat. Join us to see how they are providing us with ground-breaking and innovations,


Get involved and see what is presently being done to reduce our emissions and tackled SDG 11:

We are delighted to have some of our own members joining us for this occasion, including


  • Global Sustainability Institute: the institute is committed to playing a key role in developing practical solutions to the sustainability challenges we all face, both locally and globally. They do this through research and education – bringing together the information needed to make decisions, with the people capable of taking action.
