Innovation is the key for bringing in solutions to broad-spectrum challenges to human survival. The biggest challenges are environmental degradation, climate change, social exclusion, unequal distribution of income, economic crisis around the world economies, and so on. To ensure sustainability for our future generations, this is the high time for individuals, businesses, communities, policy-makers to take necessary actions towards resolving these challenges. Technological innovations have been proven to be disrupting the world in several ways and these innovations can also be leveraged to solve the issues related to overall sustainability. New-age technologies have begun to offer so many opportunities for providing such solutions such as by ensuring low-carbon emissions, invent of recyclable materials, and so on. Industry 4.0 has already disrupted the ways a business is run and sustained. Individuals are becoming highly conscious of how their behaviour and actions affect the environment and society. Governments all around the world are making significant efforts in this direction. Cross-sectoral collaboration for contributing to sustainability is being considered as one of the important directions by United Nations Agenda 2050. This conference is focused on the interface of new-age technologies, human behaviour, and sustainable development.


IILM University invites scholars from academia, industry and policy to share their research, knowledge, and expertise on enhancing the value of technology and human behaviour for sustainability in the light of contemporary issues facing the world. This conference aims to contribute to the greater good by bringing together people from diverse fields to take forward the debate around the new-age technologies, sustainable development and related areas. The forum is also a space for developing stronger collaborative networks to generate, exchange, and transfer knowledge among academics, industry practitioners, and the organizations.
