Global Goal Summit

March 21 | 08:30 14:30 UTC+1

RICAIP is delighted to be among partners and supporters of the Global Goals Summit 2024 with, among others, the National Center for Industry 4.0, the 17 Rooms initiative, IPSOS, Aramark, Komerční Banka or Toyota, which will take place in CIIRC CTU premises. Various speakers will present their vision of sustainability, in Czech. Our team member Petr Kadera will also be a speaker within the Part II of the program on Innovation and Technology. More info on the registration fee on the official website below.

Big goals deserve big attention. Especially when it comes to the future of the entire planet. That’s why the Association for Social Responsibility – the largest Sustainable Development Goals initiative from the UN and ESG in the Czech Republic – is organising the second edition of the Global Goals Summit in cooperation with DVTV.

Once again you will see top speakers who have something to say on the topic of sustainability. You will meet inspiring personalities from business, politics, non-profit and public sectors. You will learn about innovative approaches, examples of good practice and the experiences of those who are changing the world for the better and contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals.

To hear and be heard… You already know the first step, but the second step is still lacking? The stronger the voices of those who are serious about sustainability, the more likely they will be heard. Hear our voices. Together.

The Global Goals Summit will take place on 21 March 2024 at the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics at the Czech Technical University in Prague.

A place that brings together excellent research teams, young talent and unique know-how to push technological boundaries and build on the best traditions of Czech technical education.

A place where the voices of the young and promising are always heard.

A place where innovation is given space and visions become reality.

Viktorie Seifertová, Ambassador of the Czech Coalition for Biodiversity Conservation
Tomáš Klus, singer, actor and songwriter

Two worlds, two styles of communication, two target groups, one vision – to change the world for the better. Thirteen-year-old Viktorka talks about nature conservation to her peers, Tomáš Klus conveys sustainability in his authentic way to his fans. How can the two worlds intertwine?

Vojtech Végh, chef and author of the book Surplus: The food waste guide for chefs
Moderator: DVTV

In 2018, he opened the world’s first zero-waste and vegan restaurant in Cambodia, and after it closed, he began helping other chefs around the world reduce waste. Up to one-third of the food produced each year is thrown away, so how can we prevent food waste at a local, single-establishment level? And what role can a popular restaurant play in educating diners?
