Innovate4Manchester – tackling the climate challenges of Our Manchester

26 - 27 November 2019 18:00 - 18:00

Join Manchester City Council and partners for an evening and day at Innovate4Manchester – a collaborative event that aims to address some of the most pressing concerns we face on energy and mobility in Manchester today. We want to think about issues such as:

  • How might we shift people to different transport types?
  • How might we encourage walking and other forms of active travel in the city centre?
  • How might we improve road quality for cyclists (and other road users)?
  • How might we use transport more effectively?
  • Where might additional electric vehicle charging points be located?
  • How might we demonstrate the effects of peoples’ behaviour on air quality?
  • How might we support the case for developing high quality residential areas within existing urban centres?

Innovate4Manchester offers the opportunity for collaboration, problem and solution exploration, and constructive pitching sessions. We are offering prizes for winning teams and ongoing support provided to help you launch and grow your venture. So, if you want to make a positive contribution to help Manchester achieve Zero Carbon by 2038, this event is for you! Take a look at the city's plan for Zero Carbon 2038

Is this event for me?

We want to attract a diverse range of attendees to the event. Whether you’re a Manchester resident affected by the challenges, or someone who has experience of addressing them, your input will be invaluable.

We are also keen for anyone to attend who can contribute towards potentially building solutions to the challenges, for example:

  • Developers & techies
  • Students
  • Entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs
  • Data scientists
  • Technologists
  • Service designers

Could you help finance potential solutions? Do you have a vested interest in the challenge areas? Can you help develop ventures? If so, you'll be a useful addition to the event.

The event is supported by Manchester City Council and partners in the EC Horizon 2020 funded Triangulum project. These include: Siemens, University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and Pixel Mill Digital, working with Ordnance Survey’s Geovation Team.
