Have you got one of these?

- a renewable energy source
- a human-powered appliance
- a breakthrough use of nano-technology
If you answered "Yes" to one or all of the above, the Carbon Economy Summit on 18 November in Washington DC is the place to be. The event is being hosted by The Economist and 10 lucky people will be invited to share their ideas at the summit. Each finalist will deliver a seven-minute pitch, followed by three minutes of Q&A with an audience of 150 senior representatives from business, government, international organisations and academia. These will then vote during the event for their favourite innovation.
Format: An introductory paragraph of maximum 250 words, plus a YouTube clip which does not exceed seven minutes.
But, and this is a big but, The Economist says that "Finalists must pay their own travel costs to participate in The Carbon Economy Summit in Washington DC." That's a bit rich, but maybe there are sponsorship opportunities awaiting the green entrepreneur, inventor, innovator and visionary. Perhaps the EJC could be cajoled in supporting a European finalist, if there is one, that is.
