Get your application in for the Low Carbon Entrepreneur Competition before the 16th February!
The Low Carbon Entrepreneur looks for innovative ideas from London’s students to help reduce London’s carbon emissions and energy usage. London is aiming to reduce its carbon emissions by 60 per cent before 2025. If you’re a London student or recent graduate with a great idea to improve London’s urban living this is the competition for you!
London’s green economy is booming and I want to make sure that our brightest young minds are firmly engaged with its huge potential. I am convinced that somewhere out there is the next big idea that will not only help us reduce our carbon emissions but also encourage huge investment and growth in the capital. Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
