Summer School on “Energy Management and Digital Innovation for Sustainable Development in Sub-Saharan Africa”
10:30 - 17:00
Since the early 2000s, Sub-Saharan Africa has taken important steps towards greater stability and towards achieving the SDGs set out by the 2030 Agenda. The region is undergoing profound economic, political and social transformations. From an economic point of view, some of the African states are going through a phase of rapid and sustained growth, which however coexists with niches of underdevelopment.
The aim of the Summer School is to explain and better understand these transition processes.
National and international experts will offer participants ideas for critical reflection and work tools, accompanied by workshops led by tutors from the world of business and academia. The final part of the summer school will provide a framework of change methodologies, not entirely focused on technological innovation, but aimed at tools of innovation management and cultural change as key elements of the processes of growth and transformation.
For this purpose the day of June 27 will be particularly useful with the practical application of the “Lego Serious Play” method. With the help of facilitators, students will develop touch as a central methodology of analysis and creative development, addressing the problem of change and digital transformation from a new perspective.
