Filecoin, a decentralized storage network designed to store humanity’s most important information, will host the Sustainable Blockchain Summit EU on the heels of EthCC on July 22 and 23 at Le 28 George V in Paris.

Supported by United Nations Climate Change, attendees will join Filecoin Green, the Filecoin Foundation and Protocol Labs for a summit consisting of two full days of expert talks, workshops and deep dives featuring top thought leaders in sustainability.

Alan Ransil, Filecoin Green project lead, said: “We’re proud to be hosting Sustainable Blockchain Summit EU. Putting together this program of workshops and discussions further demonstrates how Filecoin is laser-focused on researching, building and implementing the solutions that will harness Web3 to drive renewable energy adoption, power consumption transparency, protect our shared environment and ultimately reverse climate change. We look forward to welcoming more than 350 attendees and speakers to the Sustainable Summit EU and working through these problems together.”

Confirmed speakers include Ransil, Protocol Labs CEO Juan Benet, UN Climate Change technical officer MDU Alex Paris, Gitcoin co-founder Kevin Owocki, Gryphon Mining board chair and Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Brittany Kaiser, ConsenSys’ head of partnerships Steven Haft, Digiconomist founder Alex DeVries and Troy Cross, professor of philosophy and humanities at Reed College, among many others.
