See what participants said about the 2022 Edge Forum 
Inspiring and encouraging to see that there are innovation projects being implemented to tackle climate change, and achievable within the timeframe. Good to get insight into concrete case studies and not just big picture talks
One top benefit:
Networking with Blue Economy participants and their expertise relevant to my own venture. Technical insights into future fuel projects otherwise hard to come by
The 'fishbowl' setting and facilitation got participants involved in the discussions, which was excellent
