Kew Gardens, LondonBlueTech Forum 2019 – 5th & 6th June
Kew Gardens is at the forefront of global efforts to protect plant life from the effects of habitat loss, climate change, pollution and to understand the potential benefits for mankind.
Home to the largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections in the world, Kew Gardens remains a paradise amidst the hustle and bustle of London. Since 1841, Kew has been a major force in collecting and conserving some of the most beautiful plants and flowers in the world. In recent years, the people at Kew have been focusing on issues like biodiversity for sustainable development. One major challenge is how to harness the power of water. The Kew team have refined their knowledge of capturing, preserving and recycling water over 170 years.
The core purpose of Kew’s scientific research stems from a simple but often overlooked truth, all our lives depend on plants. Programmes include issues related to food security such as protecting the wild relatives of the world’s most important food crops as well as responding to climate change on Ethiopia’s coffee industry.
Income from all events held at Kew Gardens support Kew’s vital conversation, education and research programmes. We are proud to host BlueTech Forum 2019 in this historical and unique venue.
