Description

We will be exploring the location-based challenges and opportunities in building Towards a Sustainable Bio Economy.

As global society battles collaboratively, creatively and innovatively to defeat Covid-19, businesses and organisations of all kinds are rethinking their models and processes to sustainably change society for the better. This includes the transition to Net Zero. That transition will need to address decarbonisation, deliver sustainable consumption and production, and create a regenerative and sustainable bio-economy.

In this fourth #GeovationNetZero session we will be exploring the location based challenges and opportunities in moving towards a sustainable bio-economy. The bio-economy comprises those parts of the economy that use renewable biological resources from land and sea – such as micro-organisms, soils, crops, forests, and animals – to produce food, materials and energy.

At the current rates of soil loss, scientists forecast we have less than 100 harvests left. So how do we move towards a regenerative bio-economy? What does a regenerative and sustainable bio-economy look like? What innovative products, services and venture models might support it? How can geospatial and other data, products and services be used as ingredients in regenerative and sustainable solutions?

We’re looking forward to hearing different perspectives, and welcoming back to Geovation:

  • Tim Hopkins, founder of The Land App who are on a mission to help people make the right land use decisions using technology. Tim is also the driving force behind Land Management 2.0, a weekly webinar series dedicated to transforming the future of land management.
  • Joe Allnutt, Head of Robot Awesomeness, at Small Robot Company, an award winning agri-tech startup commercialising a deceptively simple idea: small robots not big tractors, with a vision to make food production sustainable.
  • Kitty Rose is Strategic Development Manager for the Environment Sector at Ordnance Survey. Kitty works collaboratively across public, private and non-profit sectors to gain maximum value from geospatial data and services often supporting innovative solutions, and informing evidence based policy and decision making.
