Session 2: Harmonising Technology and People to sustain the Green Agenda

Conference

Date & Time

Wednesday, 18 Jul

11:45 - 13:00

Description

Our ecosystem’s health should be the beginning and the end of all conversation around tech development and our society’s evolution. It is paramount to any discussion around sustainable development.

Today’s environmental stewards are geared with drone technology, satellite-monitoring devices and IoT tech. Technology is the key to solve sustainable agriculture, wildlife conservation, clean water, pollution reduction and affordable energy. 

We have the technology and data for impact, but do we now have the will to secure the future of the planet? In this session we gather a cross-section of the inventors, champions and pioneers who have created solutions to fix our planet. Discover and celebrate how technology is truly changing the lives that we are guardians for and understand how doing good is good business.
