Building a culture of sustainability in science across the continent
The past two years have demonstrated the incredible potential of science to meet some of the toughest challenges facing humanity. But the research that makes the lifesaving and world-changing innovations possible also comes at a massive environmental impact. While the battle to combat Covid-19 has not been won, we must not make forget that our civilisation is also grappling with an existential environmental crisis.
What role can science play in addressing the main challenge of our generation – climate change? How can academia, research institutes, biotech and pharma incorporate sustainability as a daily practice, and green labs into the culture of their labs, their organisations, and their long-term strategy? Can science become the global leader in environmental sustainability?
My Green Lab’s vision is to ensure a world where all science is conducted in a way that benefits the health and well-being of people and our planet. This event represents the European scientific community’s approach to sustainability, featuring speakers from leading organisations around the continent.
The 1-day virtual event will feature:
- Keynote presentation from Dr Una FitzGerald- Founder of the Galway Green Labs initiative, and Sr. Lecturer at CÚRAM, NUI Galway.
- Case studies from My Green Lab Certified Labs in Europe
- Innovative manufacturer’s transforming their products through the ACT Label
- An interactive workshop to inspire collaboration in the European Green Lab community
