With Blockchain Technology and Digital Innovation Towards Climate Neutral Cities and Citizens
22 October 2020 @ 18:00 - 19:30 UTC+2
The science is clear: We are in a climate crisis and a swift and deep transformation to low and zero carbon societies is urgently needed. This is a transition that offers to cities many co-benefits, such as resilience, quality of life, health, cohesion etc. To achieve the goal of climate neutrality, many cities have declared climate neutrality goals, but too often such goals don’t translate into political support and action of all relevant stakeholders and impact on the necessary scale.
With this digital innovation workshop, IAAI GloCha in cooperation with the Climate Chain Coalition, the leading global expert network on blockchain technology for climate action are bringing the message that blockchain technology and digital innovation can be key enablers of programs towards climate neutral cities with fully engaged citizens.
Speakers will showcase digital innovation tools in the fields of data collection, citizen science, resource mobilization – such as digital municipal bonds – and gamification. Based on the interactive discussion in the workshop, we plan to outline a cooperation strategy between IAAI GloCha, the Climate Chain Coalition, ICLEI, daring cities and other climate action innovation champions (like youth networks) with concrete pilot projects and resource mobilization plans.
