Building Tomorrow with
a Proven Legacy

In the EloTalk episodes, we delve into the role of technology in building a responsible and sustainable future. Yes, the connection between these elements is likely understood by everyone, even though the transition from words to actions isn’t always clear. In the episodes of the second season, we are combining technology and humanism, the sustainability of the planet and people’s well-being, engineering and emotions.

Our goal is to clarify the picture and make the significance of technology tangible. Technology is present everywhere, but we increasingly need people who are passionate about it as a profession. A sustainable future will not be created without courageous contributors.

We have invited developers and change-makers from various industries and sectors of society as our speakers. With them, we discuss what building a sustainable future requires from both people and technologies, and why engineers will still be needed in the future.
