Green New Deal Flow: ZINE 03 Launch and Roundtable.

The “Green New Deal” has quickly become shorthand for a last-ditch effort to prevent climate change – one in which technological breakthroughs and market-based solutions take a back seat to public policy.

What role does innovation have to play in the fight to save cities and the planet? And are cash-ravenous startups doing more harm than good?

Join us as we convene a roundtable of entrepreneurs and investors to debate the roles of government, startups, and venture capital in forging a path forward, and launch ‘Better’ – Issue 03 of the URBAN-X Zine.

Prior to the roundtable, get a sneak peek at the founders selected for URBAN-X Cohort 07; the newest group of startups reimagining city life!

We are also excited to announce a unique installation by Laila Gohar, a creative exploring food as both an artistic medium and a tool for communication. Laila will explore the intersection between climate change, technology and food through a multi-sensory edible piece.
