Clean Tech Pecha Kucha from IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism Conference 2022
Updated: Aug 3
Synergy Enterprises is proud to be a co-founder of the IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism Conference. In its 5th year, one of our goals was to bring more clean technology solutions to the tourism community. A wide array of solutions exist to decarbonize business operations, but many fly under the radar.
The "Clean Tech Pecha Kucha" was a hit. Pecha Kucha means "chit chat" in Japanese. Inspired by this format, our team gathered some of the top clean tech solutions and each presenter had seven minutes to share their innovation. Our session featured seven speakers with a focus on solutions for regenerative tourism. Speakers included:
John Gunter - Frontiers North Adventures featuring their electric tundra buggy innovation
Gurmesh Sidhu - Moment Energy featuring battery energy storage systems from recycled car batterie
Nathan Curry - Terragon Environmental Technologies featuring system-level sustainable community design
Vladimir Kostka - FortisBC renewable natural gas program
Jennifer Leslie - VI Reusables container program for take-out food services
Sean Bourquin - First Light Technologies featuring solar lighting options for tourism
Teresa Ehman - Air Canada featuring Air Canada’s approach to sustainability and advancing sustainable aviation fuels
The Pecha Kucha is here to stay and will become a new fixture of the IMPACT programming. The next IMPACT Summit will be held January 22-25, 2023 in Victoria, BC.
