Green City webinar: Sustainable solutions in Tanzania

Date: 30 November 2021

Time: 09:00 – 11:00 CET

Venue: Zoom

SWEACC Green City cluster will host a virtual Green City cluster webinar with a panel discussion under the theme “Sustainable solutions in Tanzania”. There is a tremendous business opportunity for sustainable solutions in the whole of Tanzania, but we will take an extra look at the island of Zanzibar. From Impact but also sustainable business perspective we want to highlight the sustainable wash and purification initiative in Tanzania as we want to create innovative solutions in partnership between SWEACC and companies in both Sweden and Tanzania. We will follow up the event with another digital workshop focusing on innovative and green transformation approaches. Our Green City cluster will focus on waste management and renewable energy solutions and how this can interact with Eco Tourism in Zanzibar. Our cluster webinar will moreover give opportunities for Business to Business (B2B), Government to Government (G2G) and Government to Business (G2B) meetings.
