About The Event
Seeds of Colour and NIAB (National Institute for Agricultural Botany)
Our aim is to share our own learnings on becoming a wasteless business and driving circular business models. Also, the idea is to perceive and learn from the Climate Alumni Community, understanding their intentions. In addition, look for any small or big opportunities to help individuals or businesses to accelerate their journeys, igniting the heroes of tomorrow.
Challenge: Simple beauty swap. Which product and brand could you swap for a greener version?
