Inspired by both the United Nations Climate Conference and CES, the massive tech show in Las Vegas, ChangeNOW is a global hub for innovative solutions that seek to make the world a better place. Speakers included the CEO of the Burning Man Project, the UN Global Compact’s executive director, and French environmental activist Nicolas Hulot.
A positive-impact job fair with 100 recruiters, a pitch garden catering to 500 investors and a film festival featuring ecologically and socially conscious movies were all part of the program. The event kicked off with the Climathon Global Awards, which recognizes local initiatives for tackling climate challenges. Penang, Malaysia and Tallinn, Estonia, took home this year’s prize, thanks to projects that focused on reducing the heat island effect with nature-based solutions, and advocating for sheep wool as a sustainable packaging alternative.
