WILMINGTON, DE, USA, April 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr Florian Kongoli delivered, upon invitation, an opening plenary lecture in the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva at the United Nations International Year of Glass 2022. He spoke about the sustainability framework and the role of science and technology at a time of energy crisis. He described science as a grand disruptor and a solution provider that has literally saved the world from precipices of history and is able to do so today also in the energy sector. Among others he considered an error of some European countries shutting down the nuclear reactors that produce clean electricity based only on the risk factor and the waste production. There is no technology without risk and without waste, he said, and it is the role of science and technology that can prevent the risk and process the waste sustainably. Shutting down all nuclear reactors while importing oil and gas from other countries is a short-sighted local solution that discounts the role of science and does not serve the global sustainable development. This conclusion was proven true in the war weeks later.
Dr. Florian Kongoli delivered the lecture at the opening ceremony of the United Nations Years of Glass 2022, held at the impressive Human Rights and Alliance of Civilization room in the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva on 11 February 2022 and was viewed on live broadcasting by 4,211 persons from 72 Countries. Featuring 30 world-class speakers, the ceremony was officially opened by the Secretary General of United Nations António Guterres with welcome speeches of ambassadors/permanent representatives of Spain, Turkey, Egypt, and China and the chair Dr. Alicia Durán.
