About the conference

Digitalisation is a mega trend. The digital transformation has already significantly changed our everyday life and wide areas of production and communication. The "Sustainability 2030" conference aims to combine the opportunities offered by digitization with the goals of the of the United Nations (UN) Agenda 2030 (Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) .

The conference is intended to launch an exchange of information and an objective and differentiated discussion on sustainable digitisation in the areas of waste, mobility and energy, construction, food and agriculture. It promotes the transfer of knowledge and technology between stakeholders in business, science and public administration.

Our partner regarding diversity and inclusion is Women Techmakers Switzerland.
