What do branding guru Daymond John, former EPA director Gina McCarthy and UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador Catarina Furtado have in common? They will all be among the keynote speakers at Planetiers World Gathering (PWG), the world’s biggest event for sustainable innovation taking place on 22 and 23 October online and in Lisbon (Portugal), the 2020 Green City.

Over two days, scientists, academics and social entrepreneurs from all over the world will discuss the sustainability challenges facing the planet and the potential solutions. Planetiers aims to connect the most innovative social and environmental impact start-ups, communities and cities, day-to-day sustainable solutions and the most inspirational change-makers in the world.

The EIB Institute is supporting the event and will have a virtual stand where SIT alumni will present their solutions for a better world.
