The GTI Observatory Summit addresses the necessity for a meeting of the global leaders of the sustainable transition focused on islands. The annual GTIO Summit is run by the two leading GTIO committees: the Island Advisory Committee and the Strategy Scientific Committee. The objective of this operative meeting is to steer the GTIO’s strategy for the year ahead drawing on the work of the past year across technology, policy and finance.
GTI will provide the basis for the discussion by presenting the first GTI Observatory Report, which includes the results of the Observatory work across the different thematic areas of the islands’ circular economy, as well as good practices gathered from members and partners.
As GTI promotes the public-private partnership, selected companies that offer innovative solutions to the islands’ challenges will take part in the event as observers. Special guests will also be present to enrich the discussion on the latest island intelligence with testimonies and contents in an operative meeting. Participants will have the opportunity to strengthen cooperation, originate new partnerships and initiatives, and produce recommendations for central governments.
The GTIO Summit also represents an opportunity for the host islands – this year Gran Canaria, Canary Islands – to showcase its decarbonization strategy, disseminate good practices, and promote its territory.
The Summit will take place on 1, 2, and 3 February 2023.
The Summit is organised in collaboration with ITC (Instituto Tecnológico de Canarias).
