We had a great Symposium last week, with an engaged audience who were game enough to participate in some video interviews, answering one question: “If you had to make one recommendation to the UN, or another global body, about the future of innovation for sustainability and development, what would it be?”

More than 20 delegates gave us a recommendation, including Xiulan Zhang, Sheila Jasanoff, Anil Gupta, Suman Sahai (below), Raphie Kaplinsky, Hiroyuki Kubota, Des Turner MP and many more.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to have a look at the new website for the Manifesto project, then now is your chance. All of the material from the Symposium is online. Including:

  • Video vox pop
  • Blogs from the Symposium. Some IDS and SPRU students blogged for us at the event – Julian Pineres Ramirez, Sara Wolcott and Oliver Johnson. Their posts appear on here on the STEPS Centre blog, The Crossing.
  • Speaker presentations are available to view, share and download from our Slideshare site.
  • Photos from the Symposium are on our Flickr page. All photos by Lance Bellers.
  • And of course, our Twitter followers have been kept up-to-date too.
