If we want to create systemic change and find concrete solutions to tackle today’s environmental and social problems, we need concerted and urgent action. Showcase 2030 is an opportunity to build a truly collaborative ecosystem (including the academic community, industry representatives, entrepreneurs, NGOs, policy-makers and the civil society) to share expertise and best practices, work together on groundbreaking solutions and challenge our way of thinking in order to accelerate the systemic transformation of our society and planet.
