Background

The Stern Review underlined that increased investment in R&D and innovation could significantly reduce CO2 emissions and we have seen more than ?3 billion of venture capital invested in clean tech worldwide since January 2007 (Source: Ernst & Young). However, we need to create much better international, national and regional structures and systems to adapt to climate change as well those to stimulate, nurture and progress new low carbon ideas through R&D to commercialization and the marketplace. A new system is needed that fosters sustainable, low carbon and resource productive innovation - short, medium and long-term. Designers, innovators, investors, entrepreneurs, consumers and governments all have a role to play in the change that is needed.
 

Concept

The conference is supported by an international Advisory Board.

"419" Scam UK Phone Numbers
Scam phone numbers in the United Kingdom (+44):
If an email mentions a UK phone number starting with +4470, AS ABOVE it usually means that the sender of that mail is not in the UK at all and it is almost guaranteed to be a scam.
Usually the presence of a +44 70 number in a 419 scam email means you're dealing with criminals based in Nigeria who are using these numbers to make people believe they're dealing with someone legitimate who is in the UK instead of a criminal in an Internet cafe on a different continent.

Yes it's a scam. Originates from Ghana. The website repeats the same information and phone numbers. Some of the fake sponsors do not exist such as the UK GOVERNMENT, DEPARTMENT OF CLIMATE CHANGE logo, which is 100% fake and wrong.

Looks like the Eco Garden Hotel has ceased to exist. Thanks to someone for the success.
