About the Event

Icecaps are melting. Fish are drowning.

Forests are burning. Cities are flooding.

We are choking.

A climate emergency is here and now.

This is no time to point fingers.

It’s the time to come together.

It’s time to pivot.

Y3K is a call to renew, regenerate and regrow what we have lost. We are envisioning a vibrant future: one where humans, technology and nature live in symbiotic harmony. This is a celebration of the deep passion, commitment and innovation exhibited by diverse and determined people, to protect and preserve the wonder and biodiversity of our planet.

We’re bringing together all those that care about our planet, to learn, unlearn, innovate and collaborate. And you’re invited. Let’s step into the new decade with renewed focus. Together.

Y3K is an acknowledgement of the challenges that we currently face. An homage to the strength and fragility of nature. An organic coming together of synergistic ideas in areas of animal welfare, renewable energy, sustainable food and fashion, co-living, urban planning and circular economy.

We're gathering around stories, talks and panels by a curated group of eco champions to share their insights, challenge established practises and propose solutions.

There will be experiences, installations, workshops, networking fairs for you to discover likeminded people including policy experts, journalists, technologists, content creators, researchers, startups and more.

Pitch-a PechaKucha powered by Lightbox
This segment will run for 1.5 hours on the event day.
PechaKucha means ‘chit-chat’ in Japanese, and got popularised as a spontaneous and visual format of storytelling. This 20x20 presentation format offers 20 seconds to explain 20 slides - a total of 400 seconds to share an idea. It focuses on talking less and showing more. Dysco’s version, Pitch-a PechaKucha is for 8-10 talented people to pitch their world-changing ideas, giving audiences 6 minutes + 40 seconds to decide if they want to collaborate, join or invest in each pitch-er. It’s a chance to hear about incredible innovations, in a high-energy setting.

Both Lightbox & Climate Launchpad are focussed on supporting the emerging innovation ecosystem around climate and sustainability. To further that goal, at least one of the participants in this segment will get automatic admission into the Climate Launchpad India accelerator in 2020.

ClimateLaunchpad is the world’s leading green business ideas competition, a programme by EIT Climate-KIC (European Union). The competition scouts cleantech talent and helps them grow their sustainable idea into a global business.

Clients & Collaborators Fair
This segment will run for 2 hours on the event day.
We’ve put a spin on the concept of a regular ‘Careers Fair’. We're offering a dedicated space and time where you can market and advertise that you’re looking for new business relationships. This is an opportunity to network with experts and enthusiasts in your field, tell them about the work you do and find new collaborators, clients, and professional partnerships. Here you can expect to meet experts who focus on climate consciousness, environmental awareness and sustainability: freelance writers, researchers; policy experts; lawyers; content creators; chefs; startups; marketing and PR agencies; and investors too.
