Geo for Earth - Episode 2: How does innovation underpin a sustainable future?

Posted on: 01.06.2022

Geo for Earth is a podcast series that explores the critical role that location intelligence and space data have in helping us understand our planet and tackle climate change. Organised by Andy Bennett - Space Lead, and Luca Budello - Geospatial Lead at Innovate UK KTN, the eight 40-minute episodes will feature discussions around a specific topic with two guest speakers including policy makers, sector specialists, and emerging thinkers.

What is the role of geospatial data in building a more prosperous, yet sustainable tomorrow? In this second episode, we will explore why innovation is so important for turning challenges into opportunities, as well as building economic resilience. In this episode, we will also challenge our understanding of what innovation actually means in the context of climate action, and discuss about the need for incremental versus transformational change.

Guests:

Geoff Kendall – Co-founder & CEO, FutureFit
Luca Budello – Geospatial Lead, Innovate UK KTN

Moderators:

Suzie Imber – Space physicist, University of Leicester
Dallas Campbell – Science and technology TV presenter
