Panel Discussion - Innovation, Sustainable DevelopmentInnovation, Sustainable Development - New Manifesto for SDG's’Emirates Environmental Group and Arabia CSR Network in collaboration with Clean Energy Business Council; Sponsored by EGA;It is said that meeting the interlinked global challenges of poverty reduction, social justice and environmental sustainability is the great moral and political imperative of our age. This imperative can only be fulfilled if there is a transformative change in our thinking and performance of innovation. Apart from science and technology, it precludes new ideas, institutions, practices, behaviours and social relations that shape scientific and technological development, purposes, applications and outcomes. Social and economic innovations are essential and must themselves become the drivers of change because we can no longer deliver growth under the old model.
All of this will entail new institutions (or restructured old ones) that actively further the nexus of science & technology and located needs & demands, and the creation of new learning platforms, virtual and face-to-face. Investment should extend its focus from rudimentary science, to other aspects of the innovation system, including engineering, design, science services, and social entrepreneurship.
