There are many income opportunities in the areas of green technology. This workshop will focus on how to generate income from a Green Tech Project. We will explore various ideas and perform some online research to investigate what it takes to implement a project.
This workshop will continue with examining 1 or 2 Green Tech Projects in detail to identify:
1. What is the local Problem - scope, severity, factors, causes?
2. What are possible solutions?
3. Who is involved in the solutions - organizations, customers, partners, government bodies?
4. What funding is available?
Again, bring your laptops and any relevant news articles, brochures, links, etc. and be ready to dive in deep.
