Why technology and innovation?

New technology and innovation has its role to play. It is a potent force in reshaping how we live and work together more resourcefully. Ideally, technology and innovation enable us to be more connected, to live better on less instead of better on more, and to make fewer resources stretch further. It can also put more people in control and enable a distributed capacity for making change happen faster, everywhere.
