Can a Small Island Make a Big Impact on a Global Issue?
Building on the themes from the last two annual Conventions, the event will reflect Simon Anholt’s Nation Brands concept. The Nation Brands hexagon ranks countries attractiveness and success, based on six key areas – people, tourism, exports, governance, investment & immigration, and culture & heritage.
In a break from the format of previous IoD Conventions, these themes will be explored in a series of short TED-style talks and videos, with ‘3 sustainability asks’ at the end of each segment. These presentations will then be followed by a Q&A with local thought leaders, moderated by Dr Matthew Agarwala. The event will conclude with the audience being asked to create their own personal manifesto to reduce their carbon footprint, committing to three key changes they will make as an individual and/or as a business.
Venue: The Dave Ferguson Hall, Beau Sejour
