The inspirational and innovative practices which will be be honoured a the next Luxembourg Sustainability Forum, on the 21st November 2017
One year after the Strategic Study of the Third Industrial Revolution, our goal now is to move from theory to practice and to provide firms with a tool with which they can shape their own projects. A wide array of innovative projects have been set up in the Grand-Duchy, hence, a set of the most inspirational practices will be put forward within the context of People’s Vote Projects which will be presented at the next Sustainability Forum where the audience will choose a winner. This initiative is set up by IMS Luxembourg and the Chamber of Commerce, with the support of the Ministry of the Economy.
The Third Industrial Revolution Luxembourg:
Today, a transition is underway, heading towards a real paradigm shift, and Luxembourg is the first country to prepare for the change at the national level. In September 2015, the Ministry of Economy, the Chamber of Commerce and IMS Luxembourg launched the project “Third Industrial Revolution” in Luxembourg. The project, inspired by the social and economic theories of Jeremy Rifkin, aims to make the existing economic model more sustainable and interconnected for future generations by working with ICT, energy and transport as part of an intelligent network. The Grand-Duchy as such becomes the ideal testing ground to try out the different innovative strategies on a real scale and on a national level. The project and the resulting strategies were the outcome of a one-year long participatory process which involved more than 300 national and international socio-economic stakeholders. The results of the Strategic Study on the Third Industrial Revolution in Luxembourg and the first 9 measures adopted by the Council of the Government were officially presented at the Luxembourg Sustainability Forum on the 14th of November 2016.
