This workshop was delivered for members of the Innovative Health Working Group (IHWG) and Innovative Zero Carbon Working Group (IZCWG), as well as the wider Innovation Alliance ecosystem. If you wish to join the IHWG or IZCWG, you can join our mailing lists here.
The Innovative Zero Carbon Working Group (IZCWG) is run by SWM in partnership with the Innovation Alliance for the West Midlands (IAWM). We run the group in our role as Zero Carbon lead for the Virtual Innovation Team, part of the West Midlands Innovation Programme. We ran this joint meeting with our long-standing sister group the Innovative Health Working Group (IHWG), focussing on the interlinkages between better health and a better planet.
