During this Side Event, the connection will be made between the G-STIC 2017 key findings and the two priority themes of the CSTD21: ‘the role of science, technology and innovation to increase substantially the share of renewable energy by 2030’ and ‘building digital competencies to benefit from existing and emerging technologies, with special focus on gender and youth dimensions’.
Next to an introduction into the G-STIC rationale and the findings of the G-STIC 2017 Conference, two presentations will deal with
- the renewable energy potential of wastewater treatment,
- the potential of energy‐positive communities for a sustainable energy system that generates and delivers renewable energy to cover the living and comfort needs within local communities.
For G-STIC, four cross-cutting themes are of fundamental importance to all SDGs:
- gender mainstreaming,
- youth engagement,
- climate-smart technology,
- ICT as enabling technology.
Two of these cross-cutting themes are central in the CSTD21 priorities themes, and were thoroughly examined and discussed during G-STIC 2017. The related key findings will be presented at this Side Event.
