G-STIC to hold its 5th conference in Dubai


The Global Sustainable Technological and Innovation Community (G-STIC) will hold its fifth edition conference in Dubai making it one of a kind to be held outside of Brussels (Belgium). The conference is expected to have two sessions; October 2021 and January 2022.

Areas of interest to the conference include climate, education, energy, health, oceans, circular economy, ICT and youth-related affairs.

Owing to the Covid pandemic, this conference will be executed digitally with the help of enabling platforms that will turn all live sessions and panel debates into a great interactive experience.

The World Expo in Dubai will front knowledge and technologies that are crucial to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The conference comes at an opportune time when the world needs to shape a post-pandemic world and create a better future for all. It will therefore be a breeding ground for technological breakthrough.

Among the keynote speakers include thought leaders on sustainable development such as Gro Harlem Brundtland, Damilola Ogunbiyi (Sustainable Energy for All), Nikhil Seth (UNITAR), Satya Tripathi (UN Environment) and Thierry Geerts (Google). All climate-related sessions at the conference will be managed by the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST, South Korea), a new G-STIC co-host.

Interested participants and enthusiastic innovators are hereby invited to register their interest as the conference will offer numerous benefits including making an international network and as well as providing critical insights into the levers of change that will be needed to transform market technologies against different socio-economic and geopolitical conditions.
