The GTI e-Convention is the first of its kind and you can join for free. You can learn from world-class experts from diverse backgrounds about the latest projects being deployed in island communities, with interactive sessions you will have the opportunity to ask questions and build up your network. It will be a unique fair with all the latest developments in the world of islands innovation towards sustainability.

Last year’s edition drew on the lessons learned by the GTI Observatory and, in particular, on how global policy and finance need to sit at the same table with sustainable technology and with joint efforts become drivers for islands’ sustainable growth and unlock their potential as laboratories for innovation.
Most technological solutions are replicable in many islands worldwide, while policy frameworks and financing mechanisms are often specific to regions. Thus, as a new feature, the 9th edition will have a regional focus to analyze the main challenges in 4 macro areas with the involvement of local partners.
The 4 regional workshops will be: renewables and regulatory frameworks in the EU and Atlantic Ocean, water cycle in the Caribbean, sustainable tourism in the Indian Ocean, and decarbonization in the Asia-Pacific region.
Very new: In the opening session of the event, the GTI Observatory will present its first Report, culmination of its work across the sectors of the island circular economy.

The attendance at the GTI e-Convention is totally free. You can sign up here and all you need is an internet connection. You can interact during the conference with speakers and other participants and during the breaks you can meet participants in the networking areas and visit the exhibition where island stakeholders such as islands and innovative solution providers respectively show their needs and solutions.
