Despite ongoing efforts, women's participation in entrepreneurship across Europe remains disproportionately low. Only about a third of businesses in Europe are run by women, facing issues such as restricted access to networks, role models, or mentors.

The 'Women in Green Transition Summit' digs into why. Is it because of contrasting societal expectations, differences between men and women, and unfair structures? Or is it more complicated than that?

Against the backdrop of pressing environmental challenges, the event emphasizes the unmistakable role of women in advancing renewable energy and climate innovation. The summit serves as a crucial platform to address challenges, explore solutions, and empower women to wield transformative influence not only in business but also in shaping a sustainable future for our planet.
