THEMES

Here’s what we’ll be exploring on the Sustainable Societies stage

  • A NEW REVOLUTION


    Global corporate, national, and international leaders must come together to act on the fourth industrial revolution – one that addresses new geopolitical, social, and environmental needs. How can tools like cloud computing, biometric data, blockchain, and AI build sustainable governance models?

  • BIG DATA


    Large scale data insights can help us pinpoint and improve our sustainable efforts, by locating harmful emissions and identifying pressure points in the supply chain. But how can we use big data effectively and efficiently? How can companies balance CSR with financial goals?

  • INTENT VS. ACTION


    Using a new generation of tech, policy makers and companies can influence sustainable consumer habits. We’ll explain how data and tech can shape positive influence, and discuss citizen-centric strategies to close the consumer intention-action gap.
