    Guest Speaker 

    Higgins CAN is thrilled and exceptionally fortunate to have Eytan Lenko as our guest speaker at our Higgins Candidates Climate Forum.

    Global warming is the greatest threat facing our existence on this planet. Hear Eytan explain in person how Australia can thrive by embracing clean Climate solutions as it transitions to a zero-emissions economy.

    An entrepreneur with an engineering background, Eytan has built his career on anticipating waves of technological change. 

    He has a deep knowledge of the current state of Australia’s energy transition and is passionate about the exceptional opportunity we have to transform our economy in response to Climate Change. 

    Just imagine if Australia became a clean energy superpower, transforming our economy with abundant, affordable renewables, replacing our dirty fossil-based exports with direct clean exports or embedded in clean metals and renewables based manufacturing.

    Tickets are selling fast so don't miss out.
