How to save the Earth

Pete Wilton

How did you celebrate April 22 and its heroic alter ego Earth Day?

Our friends at the Said Business School organised a conference, Beyond Kyoto, focusing on green innovation and technology and how we can support entrepreneurship that solves the problems of the 21st Century.

Topics covered included climate change adaptation, clean energy, learning for sustainability and entrepreneurship in the Oxford area.

Amongst the speakers was Malcolm McCulloch from Oxford's Department of Engineering Science. Malcolm and his team are behind a range of exciting green innovations including a smart meter to help people manage their electricity use, research into novel refrigeration technology, not to mention working on the electrics for the stunning zero emission Lifecar.

If engineers can keep inventions like these coming then the future could be exciting as well as green.
