Picture a future where society prospers due to a change in global production and consumption processes. A future where technological innovation drives worldwide change and generates both social and economic well-being. That’s the kind of future VITO, our Love Tomorrow Conference founding partner, works towards diligently.
Being Europe’s lead international research and development center on major social challenges, VITO does more than support the definition and accelerate the implementation of the vision of Flanders on sustainability. They’re a strong advocate of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and their accomplishments. From enabling the transition to a clean and secure energy system to setting up ecosystems for a circular economy. From facilitating innovative healthcare to stimulating sustainable use of land, space and water. If there’s an opportunity to improve our economic, societal, and environmental reality, then it’s more than likely VITO has a sustainable vision for it, aided by tools and technology, and enabling transformation skills.
Moreover, VITO goes beyond interdisciplinary research and turns promising ideas into large-scale pilot installations. Some of these ideas find their origin in VITO’s Global Sustainable Technology and Innovation Community (G-STIC). With this community, they provide a public platform for innovative real-life examples of sustainable solutions. By doing so, they emphasize that the necessary technologies to tackle today’s sustainability challenges are readily available. Furthermore, they translate these progressive solutions into concrete recommendations. In turn, these can be implemented by policy makers to significantly impact the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
That’s why VITO has joined forces with Tomorrowland and Love Tomorrow. Our shared vision on innovation and sustainability makes for an excellent partnership. Because, just like Love Tomorrow, VITO believes a science-based and hopeful approach to the future will lead to a beautiful Tomorrow. And by providing a platform for these market-ready integrated technological solutions, they inspire the world to make good on our promise to our planet.
