TECHNOLOGY AND THE FUTURE OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed on the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. These goals came into effect in January 2016 and are the basis of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development - where the completion of these goals would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.

On April the 21st and 22nd, delegates from different backgrounds will have the opportunity to explore these Global Goals and the obstacles in their way, especially those related to technology or those that arise from the technological development the world is witnessing.

 

The 17 Global Goals are as follows:
GOAL 1: No Poverty
