Firestarters x TGBF – ‘Green Revolution’

How can the region’s business clusters connect with communities to create a stronger, more connected city region?

Firestarters is partnering up with the Good Business Festival to produce a special programme of events that will bring local and global partners together to ensure the impact of the festival continues beyond the main event.

Green Revolution

The next industrial revolution is going to be green. This event will help the region to reach its ambitions of becoming “recognised as a pioneer in sustainable approaches to living, travel and doing business” by bringing 30 LCR organisations together to take action in preparing for the green revolution.

The event will focus on helping the organisations place themselves in the context of the revolution by outlining perceived opportunities and threats to business.

The event will also provide the participants with the skills, knowledge and resources required to better track and measure their own environmental impact.

What are the desired outcomes?

  • Help LCR organisations to become ‘business ready’ for the green revolution by supporting them in identifying strategic opportunities and threats

  • Bridge the gap between local and global stakeholders giving the region’s SMEs access to world-leading best practice

  • Align the region’s key stakeholders to the region’s vision for net-zero carbon by 2040 by supporting the LCRCA’s priority areas

  • Support the region’s key players in improving and measuring their environmental impact

What format will the event take?

  • 2-hour event with 30 exclusive guests and two keynote speakers

  • 5-minute opening note from Aaron Fontenot at Matchstick Creative

  • 10-minute keynote + Q&A

  • 15 min panel Q&A with global partners and local industry leaders

  • 45 minutes breakout rooms sessions with Good Business Festival partners

  • 15 minute summary & feedback from all groups and thanks from the team

The Good Business Festival is passionately non-exclusive. It’s not about what you do or who you know. It’s not about agreeing on everything all of the time. It’s about everyone working towards a better world – no matter where you’re starting from.
