digitainable Thinkathon – Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence for Sustainable Development
28. April 2020 @ 9:00 - 17:30
under the umbrella of the Innovation Campus Bonn (ICB)
When: Tuesday, 28 April 2020, 09.00am – 05.30pm
Spoken Language: English
Digitalization and sustainability are mega discourses of our time, raising a range of questions. How will digitalization shape sustainable development? Where will sustainable development be boosted and where might it be hampered by digitalization? How can digitalization help to alleviate trade-offs between different goals and targets of the UN Agenda 2030, and how can it foster synergies? How can digital products influence sustainability on a local, regional, national and global level? Particularly, how can it contribute to an inclusive global sustainability, in the spirit of the central objective of the UN Agenda, “leaving no one behind”? How can digitalization shape the next generation of sustainability agendas? And how can we build the research and practice communities to approach these questions?
The digitainable Thinkathon aims at bringing together people from research, the private sector, civil society and public administration in an online format. Participants will get to collaborate with people from different places and disciplines and discuss their ideas with experts.
Further details can be found in the invitation letter (status February 2020).
