Every year, we aim to deliver content which is timely, responds to local and global challenges, showcases innovative solutions and is actionable here and now. This year will be no different and will address the challenges we are facing in these unprecedented times. We could not talk about sustainability without talking about the covid crisis. Firstly because the two are deeply intertwined as we realize that the health of our environment is a prerequisite to ours and that our economic systems depend on human welfare. And secondly because while the economic world has been put at a stop, our environmental and social distress have not been on lockdown, quite the contrary. It is now more crucial than ever to think of our businesses within our ecological limits and in respect of human life in an aim to foster their resiliency long term. The idea that businesses should have a meaningful purpose and positively contribute to society is being brought forward at all levels of governance and operations and across industries which begs the question: what should be businesses' role in the common public good.
We will be hearing from speakers and companies to share their expertise and successful implementation of solutions, initiatives and projects which are addressing one of the following focus areas:
TRACK 1: Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Cities
