Volunteering opportunity for our students

Meet industry experts, listen to highly engaging panels and presentations, improve your leadership skills and get access to materials and publications - there are still a couple of volunteering spaces available for 9th annual Sustainable Innovation Forum. Exceptional participants will also receive an official certificate for taking part in the event.


About the event:

The 9th annual Sustainable Innovation Forum is an official affiliate event of COP24, will build on the success of the last 8 years to deliver the most engaging, informative and wide reaching Forum yet - on the side-lines of COP24.  With COP24 being hailed by the UNFCCC as ‘Paris 2.0’, the Sustainable Innovation Forum presents a crucial opportunity to drive forward the Paris Agreement framework by bringing together 600 delegates engaged with fast tracking the global green economy. 

With this in mind the Forum will open with an innovation day providing thought leadership, deep-dive discussion, capacity building and networking on four key streams, Circular Economy, Energy Transition, Sustainable Mobility and Climate Finance.  Day two will deliver high level policy discussion and debate, structured and informal networking and inspirational keynote speeches by leading ministers, city leaders, investors and private sector vendors and solution providers.
