Complexity University and The Gigatonne Challenge Team invite you into an interactive workshop with members of our global community who are already hard at work tackling the climate crisis on the ground.
The Gigatonne Challenge builds, supports and funds teams around the world who are reducing global emissions.

Since October 2020, 48 teams and 700+ citizens from cities worldwide have taken part in the Gigatonne Challenge and together have abated 102.5 tonnes of CO2e emissions through local, innovative solutions.
We want to hear your vision of how we can take action together on climate change, with climate justice at the heart of solutions, and find out how our Gigatonne Teams can help you achieve it. Together we have the solution!

Join us to find out how the Gigatonne Challenge can be a delivery vehicle for the post-covid green recovery, addressing the climate challenge directly and creating livelihoods for those most affected.
Our workshop will start with an overview session - introducing the GT Challenge and hearing from some of our active team members, and quickly move into breakout sessions where we can all have a chance to ask questions and engage with each other more deeply.

Who should attend this session?
B Corps who are ready to support and catalyse active emissions abatement initiatives in their own community with a focus on equity, jobs creation and climate justice. We invite those who are actively curious about how to implement climate initiatives in their own communities or support those who are already working towards these goals.
