Green Energy is this year’s theme for the Festival and our first live debate of the day.

How is industry changing the way energy is produced and managed to be more sustainable?

What innovative solutions are different organisations implementing to tackle their own carbon emissions? What can individuals and businesses contribute to reach net zero targets? This panel will showcase new technologies and innovations and debate how green energy plays such a crucial role in the climate emergency.

The format of this talk will consist of 30 minutes interactive panel discussion where your questions will be put to the speakers. Directly afterwards we will move into a 30 minute World Cafe managed by our friends at the Tees Valley Nature Partnership. This is your opportunity to really get stuck in and debate in smaller groups around virtual round tables: How can we really start to Build Back Better?

Join our panel of expert speakers and come ready to debate and participate!
