Bridging Connection Technologies and Sustainable Development
Thursday, February 2 to Saturday, February 4, 2012
Stanford Graduate School of Business
Knight Management Center, Stanford University

Policy-makers, practitioners, and innovators will discuss using connection technologies (SMS, mobile, web, social media, etc.) to advance sustainable development solutions in the fields of health, the environment, agriculture, and sustainable economic growth. The event will be interactive, combining talks and panels with audience participation through breakout sessions, and a final “unconference” session.

Outcome: We will create linkages between the technology and sustainability communities, examining present and prospective utilization of connection technologies for development purposes.
Participants will be asked to define “innovation challenges” for how connection technology can help advance cross-cutting sustainable development problems, with outcomes to be presented at the Rio+20 United Nations Sustainable Development Conference, June 4-6, 2012. We will identify best practices and success factors for promoting sustainability innovation in industrialized and developing countries.
