Lukenya University jointly with the South Eastern Bloc Universities (UMMA, SEKU, Garissa and Machakos University) and Inclusive Climate Change Adaptation for a Sustainable Africa (ICCASA) welcomes you to a web-based series of conferences over the course of upcoming months. Following the global Covid-19 pandemic, this is a shift from the previously scheduled physical conference. The online conference will be conducted under various themes, the first of which will be held on 24th July 2020. Modern challenges require a re-orientation of frameworks to link National development to developments in other sectors, in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined under Agenda 2030 by the UN General Assembly 2015. Innovation is a key driver in achieving this end as reckoned by the UNESCO. Innovation also promotes the provision of quality services more so in the wake of covid-19 pandemic.

The core objective of the online conference is to share and discuss the variuos innovations for efficiency and effectiveness while providing quality services and/or products to improve the wellbeing of consumers/clients and achive development. For instance, to what extent has innovation been embraced in Africa and globally in investing and producing green services and/or products? Innovations geared towards improving the quality of life; such as inventive practices in healthcare delivery and education, environmental stewardship and climate change, biodiversity, waste management, reduced resource consumption and energy efficient systems among others are the key focus.
