How drones can help us to create a more sustainable future

04.11.2019 | 18:00 - 20:00

Discussing new drone technology and it’s potential to address major global challenges.

In the special edition of WORLDCHANGERS IN TECH Meetup @Berlin Science Week, we are hosting a panel discussion on drone technology. Together with prominent speakers from major drone projects and organizations, we will discuss with the audience the role of drones in achieving a more sustainable future from a broad perspective in areas such as transportation, health, communication, climate change, and peacekeeping.

To pursue our mission of supporting tech entrepreneurship for a more sustainable life, we are focusing on goal number nine from the UN Sustainable Development Goal(s) framework:

Goal 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation

In September 2015, a UN Summit launched the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a vision to radically improve our lives, end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Not only the social and environmental, but also the economic benefits are overwhelming in their estimates. Yet, with the current pace of progress, it is completely impossible to meet the targets by 2030.

At GERMANTECH, we strongly believe that entrepreneurship is the most powerful way to innovate and technology is a critical enabler in developing solutions to the most urgent problems our society faces. Once a month, we organize WORLDCHANGERS IN TECH Meetups, with individuals from all sectors, with a strong entrepreneurial mindset and approach, embracing tech in their work and open to share their learnings. These Meetups enable and facilitate a discussion among diverse stakeholders on tech solutions that contribute to a more sustainable future. Each month, we focus on a specific challenge related to at least one of the SDGs and technological solutions that make the most impact.
