Innovations in South Africa: Realising the Potential for Job Creation by Prof Gunter Pauli

30 June 2014

South African Reserve Bank, 370 Helen Joseph Street, Pretoria


MISTRA, in partnership with the South African Reserve Bank (SARB), the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and SASOL, invites you to the Blue Economy Roundtable with Prof Gunter Pauli.

This is the second such gathering, following on the presentation shared by Prof Pauli in May 2013. Prof Pauli will reflect on some of the cases he has worked on in South Africa, including a presentation of two case studies.

The Blue Economy concept offers a vision of a sustainable future with new ways of doing business.  The concept includes the creation of jobs as well as the growth of social capital and income – without further exploiting the environment, but rather by conserving and improving it. It can be an important contributor to the creation of innovative enterprises.
