June 25th to June 27th, 2020 – Barcelona Spain

The need for transitioning to a sustainable world is not to be proven any more. Humanity has so far failed to decouple economic growth from the increase in global emissions and the worldwide resource overuse. From a purely technical perspective, digitalization has the capacity to provide large scale and low-cost solutions for data processing, thereby providing better and optimised sustainable and global solutions.

Critical And Alternative Governance

Digitalization is not only offering solutions, it could also have downside effects. In that regard, digital technologies and sustainability cannot have positive mutual reinforcement if not governed by efficient socio-political systems. Contemporary definitions of “good governance” are typically centered upon the ability of a business to achieve its goals while being sustainable. However, nurturing the contradictory interests of shareholders, other direct stakeholders and the general public makes corporate governance increasingly challenging in the cyclical global financial crisis era.

With sustainability as the ultimate goal, do we simply need more effective governance or are the symptoms deeper? Growing disaffection, evident in spreading flash points of ideological and political conflicts, symbolizes a more deep-rooted precursor of social and economic transformation.
