Programme

Ethics and technology for sustainability

The main theme of this year's ForoTech will be Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities. This goal leads us to work on the challenge of acting in a sustainable manner to build cities where all citizens enjoy a decent quality of life and form part of the productive dynamics of the city, generating shared prosperity and social stability without harming the environment.

Why? What is the global situation?

  • Half of humanity, some 3.5 billion people, now live in cities.
  • The world's cities occupy only 3% of the earth, but account for 60-80% of energy consumption and 75% of carbon emissions.
  • Ninety per cent of urban dwellers breathed air that did not meet the safety standards set by the World Health Organisation.
