Low carbon lessons from nature

Low carbon lessons from nature

We can learn so much from nature. To find out what we can learn to help create a low carbon future we have decided to explore current research in the first of our two day event. Experts will present low carbon solutions from nature for urban regeneration and well-being, watershed management and ecosystem restoration, marine renewables, chemistry, natural capital and blue-green urban infrastructure.

The second day will examine the ‘internet of energy’, a greener, more reliable, and more efficient power supply. Research has already revealed opportunities for industry and the public sector to embrace new technologies to bring about a low carbon sustainable society.

We want more people to understand and contribute to a low carbon Wales and so this event is free to attend, thanks to the sponsorship of the Sêr Cymru National Research Network for Low Carbon, Energy and Environment (NRN-LCEE).
