1QBit Chairman David Roberts Addresses The United Nations’ SDG Action Event on Innovation

May 16, 2017

Building on the Multi-Stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals, the President of the United Nations General Assembly will convene a SDG Action Event on Innovation and Connectivity on 17 May 2017.

1QBit’s Chairman David Roberts has been invited to address the assembly on the topic of Positive Disruption for The Future We Want.

During the event, leading innovators from the major corporations of the world will interact with Member States on how emerging technologies can transform efforts aimed at the successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

The adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development saw world leaders commit to 17 comprehensive, integrated and ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The world in which the SDGs were adopted is radically different from that of the Millennium Development Goals. Giant leaps in technological advances are converging to make the unthinkable possible. These advances are also raising questions on societal impact.
