As technologists it is natural to be caught up in striving to develop the next latest and greatest device or services within our own industry. It can be easy to be blinkered to the catastrophic events that are shaping our world in terms of climate change.
Fortunately there appears to be a shift towards sustainability of many technology sectors, as evidenced by one of the key themes “Our Planet”. at the upcoming Mobile World Congress.
This will focus on how to create a “safe, clean and equitable world for all”. Ten years ago it would have been unimaginable to have a technology agnostic, humanitarian theme front and centre of one of the most influential tradeshows. The focus is clearly shifting towards sustainability within this industry.
At our upcoming CW event, expert speakers will explore how a route towards sustainability can be found whilst still looking for the next disruptive technology. This will include both methodologies towards disruptive research and how business cases can be built around these.
In the second half of the event, delegates will be invited to form small groups and dig down into meaningful examples of both disruptive and sustainable new technologies. These ideas will then be presented back to the audience.
