A beer festival, cracking comedy, fabulous food and live music. Who knew tackling climate change could be so much fun?
If you’re in Glasgow for COP26 then you won’t want to miss out on the brilliant fringe event being hosted by our partners from Net Zero Now on 4 November – Forget 2050…the climate crisis cannot wait.
As well as all that excellent entertainment, they’ve also pulled together a seriously good line-up of panellists for six sessions all focused on the need for urgency, action and collaboration.
The iconic Drygate Brewery will be playing host from 11am until late.
Feed your brain with one or more of the discussions:
Net Zero Hospitality and how to achieve it
Funding the future – Are COP finance discussions relevant for SMEs?
Think big, start small – The vital role of SMEs and corporate support for Net Zero
Tech for Net Zero- How tech can enable a Net Zero UK
Hear from a wide range of speakers from Deloitte and NatWest to Toast Ale, University College London, Coca-Cola and Pernod Ricard.
Peach Pubs, one of the participants in our initial Net Zero Pub initiative, will be hosting a pub of the future to show how you can serve up a pie and pint with the planet firmly in mind.
Our very own Climate Analyst and Net Zero Restaurants lead, Kate Dranginis, will be on hand if you want to discuss how to get involved in leading your business to a carbon-free future.
And once you’ve worked over your brain and need to feed your belly, there’ll be smorgasbord of zero waste options on offer, courtesy of Plate up for Glasgow restaurants. Meanwhile Toast Ale will be on hand to quench your thirst with their selection of 26 brews all made with surplus bread.
If it’s laughs you’re after, and let’s face it when thinking about droughts, floods and failed harvests we could all do with some of those, award-winning climate comedian Matt Winning is on hand to send you on your way with a smile on your face.
Register now for a day of listening to the climate trailblazers, networking with the industry leaders, authors, activists and artists and relaxing with the chefs, brewers and musicians of the future.
