The conference, “Digital, Environmental, and Social Transformation: Challenges and Perspectives,” aims to address three intertwined domains of contemporary transformation: digital, environmental, and social. In the realm of digital transformation, the conference explores the potential and implications of emerging technologies, cyber security, digital ethics, and the future of work. The theme of environmental transformation focuses on sustainability strategies, climate change, green technologies, and the pressing need for a circular economy. Meanwhile, the social transformation theme delves into social innovation, the societal impacts of digital and ecological transformations, and the urgent call for inclusivity and diversity. The objective of this conference is to generate a comprehensive dialogue around these interconnected themes. By bringing together diverse stakeholders from academia, industry, and policymaking, the conference aims to foster a multidimensional understanding of these transformations, identify key challenges, and explore innovative solutions for a sustainable and inclusive future.
