Overview: The 4th Industrial Revolution with digital technologies provide incredible opportunities for economic prosperity, equity & educationnal growth, but also break the status quo.

The way to produce and to exchange goods & services in the immaterial world, the supply chain, the value chain and all associated ecosystem, Education and knowledge diffusion are changing, forever.
We have to face it : to make the Change become an opportunity, not a critical threat to our infrastructure and life.

Among the prerequesites to succeed on digital transformations and for mitigating the schocks of disruptions, while implementing the 17 SDGs, our current priorities are focused on :

  • Education 21
  • HDRR (Human Digital Rights & Responsibilities)
  • Promoting systemic approacheS in term of methodologieS
  • Experimenting Living Labs (Cities, Regions, CountrieS / ContinentS, EntrepriseS, OrganisationS,…)
  • To be conscious of some wrong existing hypothesis to adjust and / or to change
  • To propose as output of this workshop concrete wayS to put in action the SDGs

Exponentials times requires Exponential thinking to resolve complex issues. The Living Labs are the places where complex issues can be resolved, quickly.

With the speed of change the risks growths dramatically, and it becomes mandatory for everyone, stakeholders, organisations, corporations and educational institutions, governement, business actors (union and employees) to do everything they can to reduce and contain risks with more trust & transparency.
We will examine how technologieS can reduce and take in account some ethical issues and help to the realisation of the 17 SDGs, with full traceablitiy.

The speakers and the audience will consider how to guaranted Human Digital Rights & Responsiblities, and how to develop strategies of sharing & updating knowledge & know-how for everyone in an exponential world.
