Led by seasoned experts, these workshops will guide participants in designing, testing, and building climate-related innovations tailored to local challenges.

Participants will benefit from personalised guidance provided by experienced/industry experts and entrepreneurs, ensuring their ideas and strategies are refined.

The program will culminate in a showcase event where innovators can present their climate solutions to a diverse audience of key local stakeholders, fostering networking and collaboration.

To facilitate immediate action, a pool of grant funding will be made available to participants, enabling them to launch and test their innovative concepts.

Engaging directly with the community through a series of outreach initiatives, the program will gather valuable insights, garner support, and ensure that the innovations resonate with the needs of residents.
