IASP is collaborating with EBN in The Arch, a new project to accelerate the green transition and collect world-changing solutions and present them to the European Environment Agency (EEA), the EU body responsible for environmental innovation. A racing boat will sail around Europe to symbolically take on board 100 environmental solutions shared by innovative startups, scaleups and SMEs, taking them first to Nantes and Saint-Nazaire (France) to participate in a European exhibition, and then on to the European Environment Agency in Copenhagen, Denmark.
With solutions from across Europe, the boat's full route will be Copenhagen - Gdansk - Gothenburg - Hamburg - Cork - Lisbon - Malaga - Toulon - Genoa - Athens. A huge welcome is expected in each port of call, with presentations of each of the inspiring green solutions on board. IASP's European members will play a big role, in both looking for the environmental solutions as well as some playing host to the boat.
The search for the 100 solutions is live until the end of October, with the application form available here.
