What we're about

Making the South West greener.

This is GreenTech South-West. We're here to provide you with expert insight and thought-provoking discussions on how technology is aiming to help preserve our environment and battle the massive and urgent issue of climate change. We'll be running regular meet-ups with a range of lightning presentations, round-room debates and panel discussions from some of the South West's leaders in Green Technology.

Aims of the group are two-fold;

• How digital technology can help preserve our environment and tackle climate change

• The environmental impact of digital technology and the concept of ‘digital sobriety'
