bristol-2015-International-Greentech-Festival-2As part of Bristol’s European Green Capital International Greentech Festival and BBC’s Digital Bristol Week, Bristol 2015 is bringing together some of the region’s most interesting and innovative cleanweb tech projects at an event called ‘Introducing the Cleanweb: Where Cleantech meets the web‘.

This event is for anyone interested in using technology to solve sustainability challenges, from cleanweb and cleantech entrepreneurs, to developers, digital strategists and sustainability professionals.

On the night, some of the people behind some of the region’s most innovative cleantech projects will give short, sharp presentations about what they’re doing, why it matters and what’s next for them, followed by a panel discussion and time for drinks and networking.

“This event is for anyone interested in using technology to solve sustainability challenges”

 

This event will be cutting through the hype of smart cities, Internet of Things and data to focus on action. The speakers are offering real insights into what’s driving innovation on the ground, and attendees will be able to meet others at the forefront of technology and sustainability.

We spoke to organiser Sonny Masero, International Green Technology Festival Advisor, to ask why they had organised this event.

“2015 is a big year for Bristol,” he explains. “There are so many exciting things happening. The whole region has long been a hot bed of sustainability innovation and more recently tech innovation. This event is the first of many planned throughout the year that will bring together both the sustainability and tech communities to showcase the exciting activity happening, share learning and build stronger networks.”

“By bringing people together we hope that people will make new connections, sparking more innovation that continues to improve our lives and the environment”

 
We also wondered what he was hoping the event would achieve. “First off it’s about celebrating innovation that’s going to make life better in Bristol and beyond,” says Sonny. “By bringing people together we hope that people will make new connections, sparking more innovation that continues to improve our lives and the environment.”
