Inclusive Innovation: Sustainable Thinking Scotland CIC

Join us to hear how Sustainable Thinking Scotland CIC duo, Sean Kerr and Stephen McQueen, worked with Interface to identify academic partners to develop scientifically proven production and application methods for Biochar, and went on to have a successful collaboration with the University of the Highlands and Islands.

Biochar is a stable form of carbon, which when added to soil, slows down the release of CO2 into the atmosphere, drastically reducing its impact on the climate.

NB This event will take place as part of the online Social Enterprise Policy & Practice Conference 2021 on Hopin. A link to register for this event to join this session as a breakout option will be issued.
