Your safety and health remain our top priority
In accordance with the applicable COVID-19 guidelines, we organise plenary and thematic G-STIC conference sessions at Tour & Taxis in Brussels, Belgium with a limited live audience. On-site participants can join by invitation only. We keep monitoring recommendations regarding COVID-19 and keep all on-site participants informed about the impact on the G-STIC conference.
We work closely with Tour & Taxis, who have reorganised how they host conferences. Tour & Taxis have established a new organisation of their spaces. Strict hygiene measures and innovative solutions are implemented for the organisation of post-lockdown conferences such as the G-STIC conference.
The conference addresses seven societal challenges and five cross-cutting themes, including climate, education, and a circular economy. It provides a range of activities for discussion, knowledge-sharing, increasing awareness, and ultimately spearheading market-ready technological solutions for the SDGs.
Special session - October 26, 18:45 - 20:30
The Brave Blue World documentary paints an optimistic picture of how humanity is adopting new technologies and innovations to re-think how we manage water.
The story follows Paul O'Callaghan, a water industry expert and the CEO of BlueTech Research, visiting sites around the world that are employing novel ways of tackling existing water problems.
As he meets with pioneers and innovators who are addressing global water and sanitation challenges, their stories reveal a hopeful future for our most precious resource.
Facilitating transformative changes needed to achieve the SDGs
The need for transformative changes is clear if we want to achieve the SDGs by 2030. Technology represents only one dimension of change, though.
Changes in the social, financial, regulatory, institutional systems are urgently needed as well, and financial inclusion is vital. Choose among tens of inspirational sessions zooming in on all aspects of the change that we need.
