To achieve a net-zero future, the symposium will explore digital innovation and technology as a key driver for advancing sustainable development. Sessions on this topic will discuss the potential of digital technology to reduce carbon emissions, promote energy efficiency, and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Energy transition is another important topic on the agenda, with sessions focusing on renewable energy, energy storage, and energy efficiency. The symposium will also explore the potential of the blue economy, with sessions highlighting the importance of sustainable ocean management and marine conservation.
