On 9th and 10th of June 2022, the city of Split will become the centre point for exchanging knowledge, experiences, new technologies, solutions, and innovative green transition politics as leading Croatian companies, as well as global technology leaders in technology and public policies, will convene at the Green Future conference to overcome some of today’s most pressing challenges.
Indeed, conference organisers aim to “bring together global and Croatian technology leaders, companies, institutions, decision-makers, scientists, and other stakeholders from the sustainable development sector […as to] raise awareness and learn about the green transition, how to finance it and how to implement effective public policies that will lead to behaviour change, faster implementation of technological innovations and meeting the 2050 climate neutrality goal.
Certainly, the need for such a topical summit cannot be understated.
More than 30 distinguished domestic and international speakers will share their knowledge and experiences on the green transition, the environment, energy, and e-mobility at the Croatian National Theatre in Split.
Participants will have the opportunity listen and liaise with Matija Žulj (Agrivi), Federico Cristoforoni (Eutopia), Stephanie E. Trpkov (World Bank), Split mayor Ivica Puljak, Dr Fadi Makki (B4Development), Heliodor Macko (SEAK), Josef Mouris (ELECTRON Aviation and ELECTRON Aerospace) and many more.
Speaking about the conference, Josef Mouris, a professional pilot with 15 years of experience who is now leading the implementation of EV battery technology in aircraft at ELECTRON Aviation and ELECTRON Aerospace, noted ” air traffic is responsible for more than 900 million tonnes of CO2 and is one of the fastest-growing emitters of greenhouse gases. While other sectors will shrink, aviation is likely to continue to grow, raising its share from 3% to more than 20% of all global emissions by 2050. If it does not change direction, it will crash. The Green Future Conference is one of many platforms that can help launch a green transition.”
The Green Future conference is supported by two leading Croatian tech companies – the whole event is powered by Rimac Group, technology powerhouse manufacturing electric hypercars and providing full technology solutions to global automotive manufacturers, and the challenge partner of the start-up competition, which will take place as a part of the conference, is Infobip, the first Croatian unicorn company.
The date of the conference was not chosen randomly – the new programming period brings significant grants by which the European Union wants to encourage sustainable investments, innovations, and new job opportunities in Europe, as well as fair transition in order to achieve the 2050 climate neutrality goal. It’s an opportunity not to be missed.
