G-STIC sets the scene for realising a new sustainable development paradigm
G-STIC is a conference series focused on accelerating the development, dissemination, and deployment of integrated technological solutions needed to achieve the SDGs. G-STIC is all about implementable solutions that are scalable, feasible and affordable both from an economic and a societal perspective.
G-STIC 2017 initiated the process of facilitating the upscaling of integrated technological solutions that can be put in practice in different regions of the world. G-STIC 2018 takes a new leap forward, inviting companies to showcase their engagement towards the implementation of the SDGs and to demonstrate their leadership in sustainable development.
The first edition of G-STIC took place from 23-25 October 2017 in Brussels (Belgium) and was attended by more than 1.000 participants. By capturing real‐life experiences and knowledge of participating policy makers, technology researchers, business and industry captains, and civil society, G‐STIC 2017 aimed at jumpstarting transitions to more sustainable production and consumption processes, with a clear purpose to connect technological innovation to policy making for sustainability.
By communicating G‐STIC 2017 key findings and messages to decision makers at local, national and international level and to industry leaders, G-STIC helps them set up the institutional, regulatory, policy, and business frameworks that are favourable for realizing a new sustainable development paradigm and achieving the SDGs.
G-STIC helps accelerating opportunities
G-STIC 2017 highlighted that, to realise and accelerate opportunities for integrated technological solutions, it is vital to work across sectors, to promote new business models and value chains, to demonstrate how the combination of integrated solutions and new business models works, and to rethink local, national and global policy making. That requires leadership in sustainable development to advocate and make the changes that are good for people, planet and prosperity.
