Green Technology, Digital Entrepreneurship and Climate

Wednesday, November 30, 2022 | 08:30 am –14:00 pm ICT (UTC+7)

Climate change is a global phenomenon with far-reaching environmental effects such as heatwaves, melting polar ice and declining biodiversity. Depending on where people live, they may experience climate change differently. Like many countries in the global south with low-lying coastal regions, Vietnam is threatened by rising sea levels, typhoons, and floods that could have disastrous consequences for its ecosystem, economy, and the wellbeing of its population. The deployment of green technologies is central to the measures to mitigate climate change and increase climate resilience in Vietnam. Promoting the development and adoption of green technologies requires considerable efforts both from public actors, such as governments and state-owned enterprises, and private businesses and entrepreneurs. However, the Vietnamese green technology ecosystem suffers from a shortage of entrepreneurs, which is why it is crucial to better understand the obstacles that inhibit entrepreneurship in the Vietnamese green technology sector.

Therefore, the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) and the Digital Transformation Center Vietnam (DTC) will bring together key stakeholders from Vietnam’s green technology sector for an event at the Green Economy Forum & Exhibition (GEFE) 2022 in Ho Chi Minh City on November 30, to take a closer look at the challenges that Vietnamese entrepreneurs face, especially in regard to digital solutions, and to develop strategies and measures to address or navigate these challenges. The event will begin with a multi-stakeholder dialogue that is open only to invited stakeholders, followed by a public panel discussion that is open to all visitors of GEFE 2022.
