“Technology is crucial to accelerate the implementation of the sustainable development goals and consequently the 2030 Agenda, but we also want to stress the importance of respecting traditional or informal knowledge systems and we want to see the use of Science, Technology and Innovation in implementation of the 2030 Agenda, especially in achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls. The use of this potential is for ALL, not just for a few; women, men, girls and boys must be included! Right Here, Right now!”
