COVID-19 and Climate: Technology to the Rescue?

Technology has helped the world survive, thrive and stay connected through the COVID-19 lockdown. As countries look toward re-opening in a post-pandemic world, does tech hold the same promise in the fight to solve climate change? From mapping weather patterns with pinpoint accuracy using artificial intelligence, to engineering algae that gobbles up carbon dioxide, climate tech is ripe with breakthroughs.

Is the tech sector poised for climate success, or suffering a pandemic setback? How will start-ups finance their new ventures during a global recession? Join us for a conversation with Saul Griffith, founder and chief scientist at Otherlab, Valerie Shen, chief operating officer at G2VP, and Michael Wilshire, head of strategy at BloombergNEF.
