About this Event

Join us to discuss the most important future topics in sustainability for the future of the planet: following the climate strike on the 20th of September, we are hosting 12 of Factory’s most exciting change-makers on Tuesday the 24th of September for an evening of Sustainability Slam:

12 projects will each make a 3-minute Slam, giving insight into their sustainability topic, and explaining what drives them to do what they do. Each presenter will pose a question to the crowd, and YOU, the audience, will vote to decide which topics should be discussed by our panel of experts in the field of sustainability. The top three participants who raised the most interesting questions, as voted by you, will be quizzed by the panel and the audience in a fishbowl-style format, to find out in depth how their vision can change the future of sustainability.
