Sustainable Development Meetup Series to be Held

Event Start Date: 09 Jan, 2018 - Event End Date: 29 May, 2018

Sustainable development is becoming a more and more discussable topic. Many small businesses, as well as large corporations, and also people are beginning to realize that if we want to ensure satisfaction not only for ourselves but also for future generations, we need to change the overall set of strategies across the economy, ecology and social life.

During 6 months there will be presented different strategies, approaches of companies and their implementation of sustainable development in different sectors.

Public meetups are organized by Generator 9.8 & ICPI, hosted by Mediathek in Nadzaladevi (Kikvidze park) twice a month, every second Wednesday, 7:30 – 8:30. The aim of the initiative is to meet local and international young people (and not only) and discuss the new concepts of contemporary and future world, which positively influences other generations.

At the end of each meeting, there will be time dedicated to the open discussions. You will also have an opportunity to listen to invited guest speakers.

Meetups are primarily intended for young people and for people who are not familiar with the concept of sustainable development yet.
