Tackling the climate crisis with Innovation


Technology will not single-handedly save us from the climate crisis but it can help us achieve our goal of becoming net zero. It’s already happening with electric cars and carbon absorbing materials. At this event you’ll be introduced to some sensible, and wacky, innovations in the fight against the climate crisis.

This talk is being given by Elaine Butler, who runs the website Living Lightly in Ireland, a sustainable living guide with all the information needed to live a greener life; from where to shop, to what to cook. In order to maintain objectivity she doesn’t do sponsored posts and the website is funded by readers. She has been featured in the Irish Times, The Irish Independent, and on Radio 1, RTE and Virgin Media.

Event open to residents of Kilkenny & Carlow counties only.
