Ian wrote to me and asked:
Who do you recommend I talk with who works in a Christchurch organisation committed to go carbon negative? This is for a panel discussion/workshop I intent to run in May.
My professional background is software. Recently I was on the exec of CanterburyTech and I am very interested in supporting Christchurch tech companies (especially) to address the climate crisis. I am proposing a panel discussion or workshop during Tech Week in May of companies that are, or going to be, carbon negative, i.e. sequestering more carbon or methane than they produce. The purpose of the session is to inspire other Christchurch companies and organisations to do the same thing. Tech companies are in a good spot to initiate this because they deal mainly in information, not molecules. I was inspired by Microsoft’s initiative and keen to see who else is an early adopter.
