TerraCottem bvba will be presenting a poster at G-STIC 2017, the first edition of a new conference series organized in Brussels from October 23 to October 25, 2017.

G-STIC is a Global Science, Technology & Innovation Conference that aims to facilitate the world-wide implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. The TerraCottem soil conditioning technology, which was developped as a tool to enable plants to grow along the front lines of the war against desertification, fits right in. We are very proud for this opportunity to present the poster at the stand of Flanders Cleantech Association.

The full program of the G-STIC conference is available here.

Supporting a global transition to more sustainable societies and economies
Launching G-STIC is the response of VITO and its international partners to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change (December 2015) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (September 2015). To limit global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius and to achieve the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, a global transition towards less resource-intensive and more resilient economic and social development models is of the utmost importance. G-STIC aims to help accomplish that transition by contributing a robust technology advisory system to the United Nations and other multilateral governance systems. Read more...
