This Summit will explore how product innovations and processes can address some of the most threatening and complex social and environmental problems we face today. In the new millennium, we are witnessing creativity married to practical thinking, generating a wave of innovations with the goal of contributing to a more sustainable and socially just world. Future generations are dependent on our ability to capture the power of new ideas. This summit will address the following questions:
• In what ways are innovations contributing to increase prosperity and well being among the world’s poor?
• In what ways can business support local innovations that represent good economic opportunities as well as vehicles for social change?
• What are stepping stone innovations for generating goods and developing processes for significantly reducing ecological footprints?
• How can innovations have the greatest impact on the triple bottom line—people, planet and profit?
