In December 2016, Fiona Anderson, who is reading for a Master in Creativity and Innovation at The Edward de Bono Institute, was selected to attend a short course entitled 'Making Change Happen: Business Models for Climate Change Technologies and Innovation' in Valencia, Spain.  This course was held at the Universitat Politècnica de València, which partnered up with the EU’s main climate innovation initiative 'Climate-KIC' to organise this initiative.
There were several guest speakers from various backgrounds including Professor Rubin who is well known for his work within the environmental industry and climate change, Joaquín Sánchez Planelles who has an academic background in environmental sciences and works in environmental consultancy and entrepreneurship, Professor Elena de la Poza who has an economics and social sciences background and holds a PhD in Assets Evaluation, and Mr Pedro de Álava who is a General Partner in a private equity and venture capital firm working as their fund manager. 
Topics discussed included the identification of areas that need to be tackled in terms of pollution, waste, growing populations and developing countries. Government legislation and international agreements were also discussed along with technology possibilities and the development of innovative ideas, including the formulation of a business plan, investment opportunities, financial options specific to environmental contributions, how to turn an idea into reality and how to assess whether the market is likely to adopt it.

Ms Anderson described the conference as a "valuable experience" which enabled her to "learn more about the severity of climate change and the causes and effects that individuals and organisations have in this regard". She highlighted the benefits of the course as follows: "The guest speakers provided us with a lot of valuable information, and it was also very beneficial to meet the others in attendance who were from different cultural and academic backgrounds, all with a lot to contribute. The networking has continued since the conference and hopefully in the future we will work on projects that with make a change. Overall a worthwhile and great experience!"
