Road to India’s Sustainability 5.0 with Blockchain

Regret to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances we have to postpone the SN Dialogue ‘Road to India’s Sustainability 5.0.’
Will update shortly.


While we were learning to understand and apply Industry 4.0, Industry 5.0 has quietly made inroads. For the Japanese, Industry 5.0 is Society 5.0. Interestingly, Sustainability is the key driver in this transition, which will be driven by blockchain, AI, big data and Web 3. But unlike before, the focus of these technologies is expected to be human-centric.

SustainabilityNext magazine is inviting startup entrepreneurs, sustainability/CSR professionals, tech-geeks, educators and students, to get a panoramic view of the future with pioneers Pratik Gauri and Dr. Aravind Chinchure.
