Global Game Changers in Glasgow on 12 September rewarded cross-sector impact towards the UN Global Goals.
The event held by Innovators Magazine and Newsquest Media was supported by some great sponsors, see below.
Thanks to Marc Buckley, our keynote speaker and a renowned advocate of the Global Goals. It was an honour to have the member of the Expert Network for the World Economic Forum, and Germany and Austria Country Coordinator for Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project – to name a few of his hats – share his invaluable insight. Thanks to our Engagement Editor, Carlotta De Toni, for speaking with such passion about the
#GlobalGoals. And thanks to Roland Strauss, MD of Knowledge4Innovation (K4I), organisers of the annual European Innovation Summit in Brussels – and the EUtop50 Founders and Tech Festival 2018 – for presenting the startup awards. We are media partners with these K4I events, and will be at both to share our multi-media coverage through Impact Innovators, produced in collaboration with K4I.
