On March 30th we hosted EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class, South 2022 at Browns Courtrooms, Covent Garden. This Smart Class gave a fresh take on deploying the latest digital technology-enabled solutions, data-driven strategies and best practices to improve urban air quality and drive down emissions and air pollution in our cities and regions.
Our film maker captured the keynotes and innovator presentations for additional stakeholders to enjoy post-event!
If you satisfy our regular delegate qualification criteria but were unable to join us on the day for the live in person event, just complete the short application form below and we’ll give you free access to the presentation videos, recordings and slides.
Our inspirational keynotes included: Transport for London’s Head of Air Quality, Environment & Technology, Dan Champion (leading the sponsorship of the Mayor of London’s and TfL’s investment in air quality, environment and operational technology); Southampton City Council’s Sustainable Projects and Air Quality Programme Lead, George O’Ferrall, and Solent Transport’s FTZ Project Manager, Rob Gloyns; and Chair of BESA’s Health & Well-being in Buildings Group, Nathan Wood. Dan, George, Rob and Nathan provided invaluable real-world insights into emissions and air quality strategies, ongoing programmes and challenges, digital visions, collaborative initiatives, and adoptions of emerging, transformative technologies and data driven outcomes.
The Smart Class also featured innovator presentations by leading technology experts and thought leaders, including Brightly Software’s full carbon reduction strategy lead, Hannah Winstanley; Alina Schuprin and Anna Filby from ioki – a DB company; and Marston Holdings’ Director of Environment, Nick Ruxton-Boyle. Each innovator speaker represented distinct emissions and air quality innovation themes and priority areas of application, and subsequently hosted (with support from expert colleagues) confidential, deeper dive, roundtable discussions with all delegates in attendance. Additional networking was facilitated over breakfast and a cooked lunch.
