In 2000 there were the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), committing to combat poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, environmental degradation, and discrimination against women. In 2015 we could safely conclude the MDGs flopped, and so came about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

How can we make sure we achieve the SDGs this time?

In his talk at the Copenhagen Fintech Week 2018, Incitement cofounder Zikry Kholil goes in-depth on how Brands and Corporate Social Responsibility, combined with new emerging technologies such as blockchain and AI, can play a pivotal role in achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
