Science, Solutions, Implementation, Vision and Leadership for Planetary Sustainability.
Sustainable Silicon Valley and NASA Ames are partnering, via a Space Act Agreement, to co-host this Showcase of Solutions for Planetary Sustainability. The event’s goal is to capture the innovation of Silicon Valley and NASA’s technical expertise to catalyze solutions for a resilient response to climate change. The event presents four expert panels comprised of government, academic and industry experts, an exhibit hall and presentation of featured “winning” solutions from 100 semi finalists. About 300 – 400 multidisciplinary audience members are expected.
The showcase will identify game changing technology, policies and approaches that can radically improve utilization of energy, water and materials resulting in economic and environment resilience. It will also offer participants opportunities to network, collaborate and build relationships with business and sustainability leaders who have put into practice game changing solutions in areas such as water, transportation, fuel, materials, energy, policies, communication and social change.
