After two successful editions, the Green Mind was held on the 28th of May 2019 in Brussels. Around 300 people attended this event where various opinion leaders and specialists from the private and the public sectors, as well as the academic world, came to share and exchange their views on the transition to a low-carbon economy. Sustainable challenges in Mobility, Circular Economy, and Energy were tackled. This annual gathering offers a comprehensive one-day and evening program along with exclusive opportunities to learn, network, and get deals done.
The prime objective of the Green Mind is to share new perspectives on sustainability. The Green Mind is a unique opportunity to learn from academics and daring entrepreneurs who are turning environmental challenges into concrete business opportunities, thereby accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy.
