The 1st International Multidisciplinary Research Conference in Business, Education, Science and Technology

Lukenya University embraces a Green Philosophy. This philosophy advances the use of innovative technologies to enhance business, national food security, energy sustainability, universal health, education and everyday life that are of quality and environmentally friendly. Today, there is need for the world to be innovative in every way to ensure the provision of environmentally friendly, quality and sustainable services and products. The main focus is innovations for efficiency and effectiveness while providing quality services and/or products to improve the wellbeing of consumers. For instance, to what extent has innovation been embraced in Africa and globally in investing and producing green services and/or products? The environmental friendliness may be as a result of the way the service or product is, in the way it is prepared or distributed and the general impacts that go along with it. Additionally, innovations geared towards improving the quality of life; such as inventive practices in healthcare delivery and education, care for nature, biodiversity, waste disposal, reduced resource consumption and energy efficient systems among others are the key focus today.

There are challenges in achieving these targets. However, robust solutions are also attainable. The Conference Committee invites authors to submit abstracts and thereafter, full papers for presentation within the sub-themes listed below.
