Part 1. Future Innovation Forum

Keynote Session : Climate Emergency and Economy for Transition

The rapid changes in the eco-system caused by climate emergency are threatening the lives of people in increasingly unpredictable ways.
The growing inequality and the widening gap between the haves and have-nots and infectious diseases such as COVID-19 are cases in point.
To overcome such obstacles, we must make a transition toward a new economic system beyond the existing ways.
In this session, globally renowned people such as Kate Raworth will present clear visions for a transitional economy as a solution to global emergency such as climate crisis, and build consensus.

Special Session : The Footprint of Seoul's Social Innovation Legacy on the Ecosystem of Global Social Innovation

Seoul is positioning itself as a global city in the social innovation area by leading a variety of citizen-centric innovative projects over the last eight years.
We’d like to develop success stories of Seoul’s social innovation legacy out of experiences of Seoul City’s Global Social Innovation Advisory Groupvisiting sites of social innovation in Seoul and interviews of important figures in the social innovation area and globally share them to find a direction for Seoul,
the city of innovation, to take in the future.
