The Clean Energy New Economic Revolution

So, a couple of months after the momentous public and private sector commitments involving billionaire movers and shakers such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Richard Branson, Reid Hoffman, Jeff Bezosh and other high-profile entrepreneurs to pledge to spark a “new economic revolution” based around clean energy through launching a new investment drive for renewables…..it’s instructive to look back and reflect on the issues - and exactly what was agreed.

The Future for Smart Cities

With a global population explosion underway and increasing numbers of people migrating to urban centres, some argue that cities will have to get smarter or face collapse.  Which is why the “smart city” is already a fast booming marketplace comprising a vast array of complex elements.

New UK Work Visa Open to World’s Top Graduates

Graduates from the top 50 non-UK universities can apply to come to the UK through a new visa scheme.

The Government hopes its “high potential individual” route, which launches on Monday May 30, will attract the “brightest and best”, at the beginning of their careers, to come and work in the UK.

The visa will allow eligible individuals to come to the UK without a prior job offer, and dependants will be allowed to accompany them.

Successful applicants with a Bachelor’s or Masters will be given a two-year work visa, while PhD-holders can apply for a three-year visa.

People from all ages and regions over the UK are seeking employment with some environmental purpose. Working for organisations that are actively reducing their carbon footprint or supporting net zero goals in some ways is attractive.
