that are good for the planet, for the people and for the economy
G-STIC is a series of conferences that aim to accelerate the development, dissemination and deployment of technological innovations that enable the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). G-STIC is focused on building knowledge bases and global expert networks to support the technological transitions that are needed for the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.
Building on the G-STIC 2017 key findings and aiming to create synergies within and between sectors, G-STIC 2018 will focus on 3 elements.
Accelerate opportunities for integrated solutions
To accelerate opportunities for integrated technological solutions, G-STIC 2018 will further develop recommendations for policy actions that are critically important to upscale the use of integrated technological solutions that address several SDGs at the same time.
Introduce new and impactful integrated solutions
G-STIC 2018 will introduce new integrated technological solutions that have the potential to impact the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in a significant way, and that are socially acceptable and economically feasible at the same time.
Demonstrate leadership in sustainable development
G-STIC 2018 invites companies to showcase their engagement towards the implementation of the SDGs, either by demonstrating thought leadership, showing integrated solutions in action or exhibiting market-ready and globally scalable technologies.
More than a conference series
G-STIC aims to contribute to a systemic change
G-STIC is focused on building knowledge bases and global expert networks to support the technological transitions that are needed for the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.
G-STIC will draw upon the best available knowledge and real-life expertise to contribute a robust advisory system on integrated technological solutions to the United Nations and other international policy forums, as they relate to the SDGs, the climate goals and the Means of Implementation of binding multilateral environmental agreements.
