For this Rockstart flagship event, we built cross-sector bridges and put forward solutions around our three domains
Impact of investments on our food systems: How could the current market downturn help fast forward the green transition? What is the impact of innovation/entrepreneurship? Which technologies do we need to focus on right now to actively reverse the trends we face?
From soil to gut: What role can regenerative agriculture play? With widespread adoption of this agricultural practice, would we be able to reduce the carbon footprint of our current industrial food system? What has been so far and how should we go about it moving forward?
Collaborative instead of competitive business models: Is there a new system which could allow incentives that account for regenerating, along with replenishing the environment? Can we reverse the trends we face by working together instead of competing with each other?

How bridging the gap between tech and society can reduce planet warming emissions?
Climate-neutral continent: Is climate regulation changing industry practices fast enough? Can Europe kickstart a green industrial revolution?
Decarbonising industry: Where would we like to be in 10 years? What action do we need to take today to move towards greener energy production? Is that even possible at this stage?
Rethinking consumption: How can each of us contribute to tackle climate change? Should we seek to preserve the way we live — or do we need to reimagine the way we consume energy?
Leaders in Cleantech
Deputy Executive Director
CleanTech for Europe
How can we move towards a greener world?
Tech for the planet: How can regulators and tech leaders collaborate to tackle climate change? Should we seek to preserve our lifestyles — or should we change how we live in cities?
A better way of life: What does the sustainable version of the good life look like? What action do we need to take today to move towards a more circular economy?
Seeking a silver bullet solution: Doing the right thing is never easy — can emerging tech really help us achieve ecological balance? Tech doesn’t exist in a vacuum — how can planet-positive solutions achieve social and political acceptance?
