Responsible Development vs. Sustainable Consumption: Nature and Technology

06 Jun , 16:45–18:00
Technologies Shaping the Future
Congress Centre, conference hall B2

Environmental changes resulting from human activity have become a serious challenge affecting all countries of the world without exception. The key question going forward is whether this challenge becomes an unresolvable problem, a threat or an opportunity, and will it radically change the global technological landscape? Will global warming, for example, encourage cooperation among the most developed countries, or will it further exacerbate competition between them? Is one of the UN’s goals – to feed humanity – achievable while maintaining food quality? How do new technologies affect these issues?
