Vanessa Keith a speaker at Urban Green’s Cities and the Future of Negative Emissions. Come one, come all!

April 24, 2018

Come join us on May 30th at the Fisher & Paykel New York Experience Center, 150 E. 58th Street, from 6 – 8pm. Event is hosted by the Urban Green Council and will feature presentations and discussions on Direct Air Capture technology.

Direct Air Capture (DAC) refers to a range of emerging technologies that draw and convert atmospheric carbon into stable forms. This carbon can then be sequestered or productively reused, effectively reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

With atmospheric carbon already at concentrations that consensus science deems unsafe, these solutions will likely be a necessary part of long-term strategies to prevent the most catastrophic impacts of climate change. Indeed, the underlying assumptions of the Paris Climate Accord include the scaling up of “negative emissions” solutions in the coming years.

Panelists, including representatives from early-stage DAC firms and subject experts, will explore potential applications of DAC in cities. We will also investigate how creative urban solutions may help catalyze and drive DAC from obscurity to maturity.

Moderator: Chris Neidl, Director of Business Development, Brooklyn SolarWorks; Speakers: Christophe Jospe, Chief Development Officer, Nori; Dr. Graciela Chichilnisky, CEO and Co-Founder, Global Thermostat; Elliott P. Montgomery, Assistant Professor of Strategic Design, Parsons School of Design, Co-Founder, The Extrapolation Factory; Vanessa Keith, Architect and Principal, Studioteka Design, and Author, 2100: A Dystopian Utopia–The City After Climate Change.
