SDG Media Zone at Web Summit 5-7 November 2019

The SDG Media Zone was broadcasting live from Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal from 5-7 November. Attracting around 70,000 innovators and entrepreneurs, Web Summit convenes the founders and CEOs of technology companies, fast-growing startups policy makers and politicians to help shape a new era of global business.

Together with the UN Global Compact, we were broadcasting interviews and panel discussions live from the floor of the Planet Tech area with a focus on scaling up action to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Join us to hear from CEOs, tech industry leaders, innovative companies, fast paced startups and leading journalists on how business and disruptive technologies can help support sustainable development and deliver the Sustainable Development Goals.

The SDG Media Zone was located in Booth #E214 near the Planet Tech area of Web Summit.
