WE Empower UN SDG Challenge awardee Shimrit Perkol-Finkel, co-founder and CEO of ECOncrete Tech, will be one of three presenters at a February 10 event hosted by Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Foundation, in partnership with the Pacific International Center for High Technology Research (PICHTR) Climate Adaptation Collective in Honolulu, Hawai'i.

To address the climate crisis brought upon by unprecedented levels of carbon released into the atmosphere due to human activity, President Joe Biden’s Administration has placed a focus on carbon reduction and sequestration as core elements of The Biden Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution and Environmental Justice.

This webinar will feature innovative technologies from the United States, Japan, and internationally that are capable of reducing and sequestering carbon across the built and natural environments. Presenting with Perkol-Finkel are Christie Gamble, Senior Director of Sustainability for CarbonCure Technologies, and Yabing Qi, Professor at OIST. Register online.
