Clean Tech Social Entrepreneurship Salon

November 14, 2023 at 5:00pm - 6:30pm
Tangen Hall
With current consumption and production practices contributing to a climate in crisis, it is imperative we design clean technological solutions that will work to ensure a future for our delicate ecosystems.

Join Venture Lab and the Mack Institute for Innovation Management for an interdisciplinary panel discussion in Tangen Hall, November 14th from 5pm - 6:30pm to explore what it means for tech to be 'clean', why its needed, and the emergent business innovations that have arisen in response to exacerbating climate challenges.

Human activity has been a contributing factor to our planet's environmental condition since the advent of the Industrial Revolution, with these contributions compounding each passing decade. Current greenhouse gas emissions are at the highest levels in human history, resulting in unprecedented environmental pressures that will have far-reaching social and economic consequences if not mitigated. With increasing urgency to combat the negative environmental impacts of human production and consumption cycles, innovations in the form of clean technology, or ‘Clean Tech’ have responded to this emergent need.
